TV Folders

You need to go to Metadata Manager and change the content type from inherit to TV for Batman Collection and run library scan.

 

Look at Star Trek example.

A recent update (assuming it was a Server Update) changed the way Multiple-Level Folders display.

To explain what I mean.......

 

For Example:

I have 5 Batman TV-Series.

Each Series has multiple Seasons.

I placed the 5 Series under a "Collections" Folder.

So the folder structure would look like the following:

 

-BATMAN COLLECTION

 -Batman Adventures

  -Season 1

  -Season 2

 -Batman Beyond

  -Season 1

  -Season 2

 -Batman Adventures

  -Season 1

  -Season 2

etc.......

 

SO, when scrolling through my TV Series the Top-Level folder I see is BATMAN COLLECTION.

I select this folder and I see Batman Adventure, Batman Beyond, Batman Adventures, etc...

If I select Batman Adventures I used to see Season 1, Season 2, Season 3 etc...

Then when selecting a Season I would see each episode.

That was before, now when I select a Series (Batman Adventures) I see ALL Episodes and not each Season displayed.

I haven't made any setting changes in quite some time, so I am assuming this is due to an update??

 

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks - John.

Hi there

I have a similar problem.

I've grouped my TV shows by type/country (Comedy - UK, Drama -US, etc) and for some of my folder they are now being detected as TV shows themselves rather than parent folders.

 

https://emby.media/c...mixed-contents/

It looks like this potential fix no longer works. is there a way I can still get the folders behaving as intended?

the recommended option is to create a TV media folder and add the sub-folder locations instead of the top level folder

 

I'm going to give this a go first. Hopefully it's an easy fix
