Hiding empty TV series

Best Answer FrostByte , 11 June 2015 - 06:44 AM

No, the whole file name is ".ignore" with just the extension.  Windows won't let you do it using file explorer though.  Start Notepad, Save As, change type to *.*, and then change file to ".ignore" before clicking save.  After you create one you can just copy it to other folders

You ran a manual sync?

 

Provide your Kodi log following a manual sync, thanks.

Yes, and after posting, I retried multiple times and at last it seemed to worked (was seeing a message comparing movies to...)

I went back 15 mins later and its back to processing updates for 6k items...

I do see a box in lower right corner that says Working with a spinning thing

I'm gonna let it finish whatever its doing and check back later

Got a message that manual sync completed in 3 hours and change...

Unfortunately, none of the empty tv shows appeared :(

 

Another thing, since this scan, from homepage ribbon, I go to VIDEOS then FILES, I now see 2 EMBY, + the usual Add Videos...

Both EMBY reveal identical content

I rather not have to create ignore files and putting it in the folder wouldn't it be easier for emby to have a setting to ignore empty series for us that want them ignored.

Those 2 EMBY show unexpected (but identical) content when clicked on.

A list of all currently powered-on networked computers. Selecting any point to hard drives/directories.

From before Emby, I would get a list of library folders (movies-eng, movies fr, tv series, etc)

Yes I didn't get a chance to make an announcement about the changes we've made to views. You'll need to run a refresh playlists/nodes to remove the duplicate and repoint your shortcuts if need be. Sorry, I can't help you if you won't provide your Kodi log.

I thought you had it in post# 26 (?)

 

I'm now on a different computer, maybe this way is better:

I ran refresh emby playlists/video nodes, it took a mere second, said the task succeeded, but that too didn't provide expected change

 

I click on ribbon's Videos/Files I get the 2 Emby, also the add videos...On top if I click the empty line with 2 dots (..) (to go up one level, I do get expected nodes

If it makes any difference, I have 3 different computers running Kodi (all 3 connect to the same Emby server), and they both have the same main issue with empty tv shows folders, and same behavior showing dupe Emby in Videos/Files

This morning I added a few current tv episodes to those empty folders, and sure enough, Kodi quickly displayed them.

Later today, I'll be watching those and afterward, managing/deleting, then monitoring if the tv show folder disappear again from Kodi.

Are you sure you don't have the hide empty shows setting enabled? Under Kodi settings > video

From ribbon, System/Settings/Video/Library, "Show empty TV shows" is enabled

 

From ribbon, Emby shortcut/Settings/Sync Options, "Sync empty TV Shows" is (also) enabled

 

Questions:

1) those 2 look very similar, are they trying to do the exact same thing?

2) If so, why the redundancy?

3) Are we 100% sure if we have both enabled at the same time, one doesn't cancel out the other?

Show empty shows is a new Kodi setting. It used to be only an advancedsetting thing.

The addon option does not conflict. It simply won't add any empty shows to your database if the setting is disabled. If it's enabled, then it should automatically behave correctly and add empty shows. If it wasn't enabled and then it was enabled, you need to run a manual sync and it should then create empty shows entry in the Kodi database.

If you ran a manual sync and entries are not showing the please post your Kodi log after doing a manual sync so I can see what's wrong.

I already posted my log (post# 26 and 29), but on 2nd thought, I should probably redo it.

I realize now I need to have Debug logging active before running manual sync, then only post it?

Just in case, I'll post a new log (as soon as manual sync finishes, which I expect to take 2-3 hrs

 

 

PS: running manual sync, it seems to zoom through all my media sources folder pretty quickly, but everytime its down to scanning this specific TV-fr, progress slows down to a grind

As far as content is concerned, its my smallest folder (27 series/182Gb); There's no empty folders in there.

Empty folders are in TV-eng, which is 380 series/3.1Tb)

Nothing the addon can do about the slowness. It's most likely the server that is slow to return the content from tv-fr. One way to find out is check timestamp in your server log to see the query that's slow.

Sorry, yes your last log was not setup correctly.

I have tested this and it works just fine so no idea why it's not working for you. I enabled the sync empty show in the add-on, ran a manual sync which added the empty show. Made sure Kodi settings > Video > Show empty show was enabled and the empty show shows up under tv shows now.
