PostSubject: Duplicates   Sat Jan 23, 2010 4:28 am

Hi,
first all many thanks for this life-saver application!
My main problem is when I point MC to my movie folder it returns duplicates for all the sub-folders. I keep each of my movies separated in sub-folders with the same name as the movie. No matter how many times I had MC re-scan the movie folder, it always shows twice each of the movies. Needless to say, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks

perhaps also check to make sure you dont have multiple .nfos for each movie, perhaps from using other media managers

That was indeed the problem: perhaps another application had left for each movie a "movie.nfo" file that together with the new "name-of-the-folder.nfo" generated duplicates. Silly me not to think about it immediately Rolling Eyes

Thanks everybody for your help cheers
