Yes, and I have had this library set up since Emby first came out.

I removed the Movie library and created a new one in a different folder.
I then added a Horror movie which showed up in the Movie and Genre views.

I then added a Documentary movie which showed up in the movie but not Genre views.

 

This seems to be extremely persistent and making my Movie library useless.

Well I wouldn't say useless, as I would imagine all the other screens work.

I don't think this is your issue but as a test can you go to http://localhost:8096/web/movies.html then genre do you see a difference in movie count? 

 

(Note if you navigate to Movies via Emby remove the ?topParentId=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx and refresh page)

 

 

Entering either Folder contains the same media.

@ Happy2Play, I followed your instructions and I see the same results.

 

@ Luke, maybe not useless but my waf is very low at the moment since she learned how to browse for movies using the genres view.  Fortunately we hardly watch any TV in the summer.  Below are screenshots results of search function, same results.  Search Sound City, found Movie, click on Documentary and no movie listed.

Luke, see screenshot above.  I clicked the search button and type Sound City, found movie, clicked on Documentary and no movies listed.

Is that the search function you are asking me to use ?

I believe Luke is referring to the left side of your combine screenshot above.

The left side is shown in the screenshot about, all I see after a search is the movie I searched.. nothing else, no menu or anything else on left side.

I can confirm that Emby can't count genres correctly.

 

I may post screenshots if you don't believe me... but in genres screen, it says genre "Music" (musical movies), has only 1 item.... when I go inside it, it has 5.

For genre "Family", it says only 20, but inside it shows 94.

 

"Reports" shows the 5 (Music) and 94 (Family) when I filter by that Genre. So why Genres screen counts it wrong?

Sounds exactly like what I showed in post 25, since genre doesn't honor toparentid once you enter it just like collection doesn't either.  Do you have multiple libraries of the same type?  Reports merges all library data by type not libraries.

You got it right! I do have a few of same type... and reading you explanation closely on #25 made me take a look removing the parentId (5 results!) , and looking at each library... all them in sum brought me 5 again.

 

So... what I realize is, one of those should happen:

#1 - Show library context count (few partial for each library, just like today),      and when clicked only shows the list that are related to that library, not ALL of that genre

#2 - Show always the sum of all libraries in genres screen (no matter the library),       and when clicked brings the screen with all of that genre (just like today), with all items of that genre

 

I believe #1 would be preferable because as I said in http://emby.media/co...xt/#entry334494 , context matters.

Ok, not sure I follow your discussion Happy2Play & anderbytes, but what does that mean to my issue ?  Is it something I am doing wrong or is it Emby server related ?

Emby works in a non-intuitive way in that part, but it is possible to understand what he does.

 

The problem is: one page counts genre totals within context (this library), and when clicked, it opens to all-libraries genres list

All of the sudden everything is back to normal, all of my genres now show up.  My guess is that the latest beta fixed/resolved the issue but cannot confirm.
