ANSWERED Question about auto collections

Recommended Posts

sundevil67

I'm not sure how much the screenshot helps, but for some reason, the system automatically creates a 'collection' for these 2 movies even though they are not technically related other than the fact that they have the same name in the title:

 

1) Enter the Ninja

2) Revenge of the Ninja

 

Don't judge me for my bad taste in cheesy 80's ninja movies  B)

 

I keep deleting the collection, only to have it show up again the next day. Any idea what's happening here?

Hi there, did you check MovieDb to see if this is listed there?

The "AutoBoxSets" plugin gets the collectionid from the metadata as TMDB has them as part of the collection.

 

https://www.themoviedb.org/collection/373538-enter-the-ninja-collection

 

If you don't want them as a collection you will have to remove the collectionid from the item metadata and lock the metadata, then delete the collection via the UI.

Hi, the "system" gets this information from MovieDb. Based on that, why do you feel that it's a problem?

Thanks so much for trying to help! Mea culpa - I blew it this time & Emby was correct! So sorry - my ninja-movie memory  :ph34r: isn't what it used to be & I'd actually forgotten the details related to this franchise. The 2nd movie was technically a sequel even though it ignores the first chapter & has a different cast...It's one of those random one-offs in a franchise like Friday the 13th V, Fast and Furious 3, etc. Anyway, case closed. Thanks anyway  :unsure:
