I'm a noob Emby user (last 2 days), but I LOVE what it manage to do for me. I used to run 2 independent instances of Kodi, on my workhorse pc and on my HTPC. Oh, the time I wasted tinkering, and having to redo everything twice...
Like RDMuser, I delete some tv shows as soon as they're watched. But I notice 2 drawbacks with those:
1) Kodi is not listing those empty folders anymore, neither at library nor video file level.
2) I am using an add-on called "TV show Next Aired" and this guy too is not listing those shows, probably because it's not finding them within Kodi.
Emby does list the empty tv show, but without content, obviously.
BTW, I am aware of the Kodi setting "Show empty TV Shows" but whether it's on or off does't make any difference.
I've searched everywhere on Emby side for a similar setting (in vain), and googling it brought me over to this thread.
