OK guys. Been working with the PB for a couple hours or so this morning. I do not have a NAS or anything like that in my network. It is a simple desktop with a small 640gb external HD hooked up to it. There are 3 folders in that HD that are shared; movies, tv_shows, and audio. In the Settings area, I have added those folders (except the audio one) in the Add Network Shares area. I then added them in the Add Media section. After this, the Scan Status changed to Running. At this point, everything is doing exactly as popboxteam said.
So, I head out to the main Media Library and select TV Shows. Now, my tv_shows folder only contains avi files of seasons 1 & 2 of The Big Bang Theory. I see that this had apparently been scraped and was appearing in the PB menus, although it is a file structure view with only a small cover art image appearing in the right hand pane of the window. OK. Thats fine. Probably because its a TV show and not an actual movie file.
At this point, things were looking up. I was ready to go have a look at the Movies section of the Media Library. So I click on Movies and get the message "There is no content available for this section". So, I am very confused by this and wonder how the tv_shows folder was apparently scraped when the movies folder wasn't.
So I head down to the USB|Network section and pull up the folder list of my shared folders. Upon selecting the movies share in the left pane, the right pane shows loading for a split second and then says "No Content". Now, this movies folder has approximately 40 dvd ISO rips in it. Why in the world are they not showing up at all? It also has a few mkvs and avis. Now I know that the avis should show up because they do in the TV Shows area.
Anyone shed any light at all on how I can get this thing to scrape that movies folder and populate the info like it should? I know that a few folks have mentioned that they have successfully played BD ISOs, so I would assume that DVD ISOs should not pose a problem like this.
Up until this point, I haven't even added the audio folder. Yet somehow the artists from that folder still appear in the Music section of the Media Library. Notice I said the artist, not anything else. I can select an artist and there is nothing tied to them. No albums, no tracks, no nothing.
So, I am completely confused right now. Is there anyone that has any idea what I could be doing wrong here?
Thanks in advance for any help. It is greatly appreciated!
