Linux Unionfs to avoid scraper issues
#1
I just wanted to share some info on how I solved an issue I had with my tv shows folder, and possibly get an easier solution from you.

I have a structure like

Code:
/somewhere/0-9/Show1/Season1/Episode1
/somewhere/0-9/Show1/Season1/Episode2
...
/somewhere/0-9/Show2/Season1/Episode1
...
/somewhere/A-B/ShowA/Season1/Episode1

and so on. If I directly add the somewhere folder to xbmc I get strange results from scrapers, because 0-9 and A-B and so are seen as show titles. To be able to keep just one source in xbmc, I had to use unionfs to mount everything to a single folder, so now I have

Code:
/somewhere/tvshows/Show1/Season1/Episode1
/somewhere/tvshows/Show1/Season1/Episode2
...
/somewhere/tvshows/Show2/Season1/Episode1
...
/somewhere/tvshows/ShowA/Season1/Episode1

and this works.

But... is there any simpler way to tell xbmc to ignore the first level of subfolders? Possibly without using nfo files for every single show folder. If it's possible to use a nfo file to exclude a folder, that would be a solution.

You set content on the 0-9 folder(s).
Always read the XBMC online-manual, FAQ and search the forum before posting.
Do not e-mail XBMC-Team members directly asking for support. Read/follow the forum rules.
For troubleshooting and bug reporting please make sure you read this first.
