Library updating partially
Ok please forgive me if I'm asking a noob question or if I havent provided enough information. I've been using XBMC Live (installed) for about a week. I've garnered enough Linux knowledge in order to do the following (apologies for wall of text)

1. Installed XBMC Live Dharma Beta 3, mounted two 1TB drives to /home/xbmc/library and /home/xbmc/nas

2. Configured Samba to share both these folders so I can access them from my windows machine.

3. made some other minor tweaks and tried to get to grips with setting up NVidia HDMI outputs correctly

4. My library uses both the /home/xbmc/library/TVShows and /home/xbmc/nas/TVSHows-Archived folders as sources

5. I place videos directly into the folders in the following format /showname/season/title.s0xexx.string_of_text.avi

6. Updating content adds the file to the library and gathers the information ie divx/mp3/2.0 etc but the plot and episode title never makes it into the database

I've tried updating/refreshing/removing the episode and rescanning with no success. No NFO file seems to get created either (not sure if it should) Am I missing something?
Included here is from the debug log showing what happened when I did a refresh from the Episode information screen.

If anyone can help it would be appreciated. My aim is that I can place files into the folders from any machine on my network and that the library updates itself with the correct information from
Made some progress with this over the last couple of days.

If I save files direct into the media folders and let XBMC scrape then the info doesn't get downloaded for some reason but the episode is added to the library. This then means that any custom NFO's seem to be ignored until the item is removed from the library and re-added.

To work around this I have disabled auto-update library. I have scheduled MediaCompanion on my PC to scan the folders every morning at 0800 which creates the NFO files, then I can kick off an update Library on the XBMC when I start using it. This works well for me except it would be nice to have autoupdate run but only once per day at say 0900. I'll check the scheduling of auto-updates later but think it may be a cronjob task (well at least I'm learning more about Linux)
