I have just discovered Media Browser (currently using XBMC) and I’m in the process of playing around with it with the thought of using it perminantly. Very impressed so far.... I have a question though...

 

I have created a set of media folders on my HDD for testing and used the following structure:

 

Films

Kids Films

Kids TV Series

Music

Music Videos

TV Series

 

In Media Browser I have added the following media folders

 

Films - Type = Movies

Kids Films - Type = Movies

Kids TV Series - Type = TV Shows

Music - Type = Music

Music Videos - Type = Music Videos

TV Series - Type = TV Shows

 

I have setup three User Profiles,

 

Lee (With pin code)

Stephanie (With pin code)

Kids  (No pin required)

 

I have given the kids the Library Access to

 

Collections (Made with the plugin Auto Box Sets)

Films

Kids Films

Kids TV Series

 

I have also restricted the User Kids to a parental rating of GB-12 on “Movies” & “TV Shows”

 

Apart from the odd film which would bore them (Adult film with GB-12 rating), this works great.

I could even edit the rating of those films for the perfect experiance for the Kids.

 

For the users Lee & Stephanie I have removed the Library Access to

 

Kids Films

Kids TV Series

 

However  when loged onto either user Lee or Stephanie under the Movies selection there are Kids Films.

Is there a way of stopping this from happening?

I understand I have selected the Media  Type as Movies, but there was no Kids Movies option, and thought this was for scraping.

Is the Library Access feature still work in progress?

I assumed this would disable the Kids Films from my Library view.

Infact I have just checked the TV Shows and the Kids TV Series are hidden as I expected.

 

I have just found the cause of this issue:

 

Under the user Stephanie, I clicked on her icon (Top Right), then preferences, and under the section

 

“Automatically group content from the following folders into views such as Movies, Music and TV”

 

I unticked the “Collections”. This has stopped the Kids Films from being displayed in this libary.

 

I think this is abit of a design flaw in that the “Collections” is ignoring the “Library Access” settings for that given user.

Yeah, that is a loophole with Collections.  They are generated at the global level so there is no user context for them.  For most situations, parental controls arrest this but, in your situation, you needed the opposite of parental controls.

Thanks for your reply. Glad I found out what was causing it. It was really anoying. I can live with the work around, just thought others should be aware also.
