View Full Version : Files in Videos folder, yet none showing in MB

July 4th, 2010, 07:01 PM
Hi I am downloading torrent files and then placing them in the default var/lib/mythtv/videos folder. I am seeing a ton of .avi files.

Yet when I open up Myth it shows not files in my Videos directory! What am i doing wrong here?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Did you go the menu inside of the mythvideo and tell it to scan for changes? If that doesn't work then we may need to look into your frontend logs and/or permissions and make sure you have your mythvideo directories set up properly.

Hi excuse my ignorance but how do you scan for new files in Mythvideo

In the Mythvideo library, hit M on the keyboard for the Menu. It will be your first option. If you have a remote set up... hit the media button.

If its an MCE remote it may be the green Windows-logo button.
