Batch re-read NFO files without losing watched etc.

OK tested it:

...it does screw up the latest added information... and that's the most important to me

There should be a function that ONLY re-reads info files, WITHOUT changing latest added/playcount/watched status etc

Hope it gets added on someones to-do-list Smile

No hurry, thx!

The screw-up of recently added will not happen anymore once my "dateAdded" stuff goes into XBMC after Eden has been released. It will also be stored in file level (same as playcount) so you more or less might get the requested behaviour as described by jmarshall once that extra logic for date added is stored/handled.

Well that sounds promising! You're way ahead of us Wink Thx!

Single-press re-read would be the next step..

Thx again, LoL

Would be very happy to have a "Reread whole library"

Yes, a single option "Refresh Library" that updates the library by reading all the updated NFO content, that is available both in the UI, and also via the HTTP JSON interfaces would be very very welcome.

Even better would be if it actively watched directories, and whenever an .nfo changed updated automatically... or a "Refresh updated library" option that only refreshes the items where the .nfo has been modified since last read.

@Phantom_Zone: You missunderstood: My point was it has nothing at all to do with mysql. Regardless of whether you're using mysql or sqlite, XBMC ensures that your playcount is not erased during the db cleaning of a source done as described in my post above. Obviously that information is kept in the db.

Cheers,

This sounds very promising. If I read it right, it is already possible to update all movies with keeping the watched-tags through a few clicks. A simple script should allow to automate it?

This sounds like a great idea. I try to keep everything updated with the latest ratings and info.
