Collections no longer adding movies back in


Recommended Posts

Hi there. I migrated server a few weeks ago and only recently noticed the issue where all libraries were "mixed content". I noticed this because I was having issues with some movies I had re-added, weren't going into their collections. The issue with "mixed content" is a known issue and has since been resolved.

In my case, before I knew how to fix it, I re-created all my libraries. This has now complete, I removed all the old ones, uninstalled and re-installed the Auto Box set plugin.

I'm still having a "Collections" issue.

The issue is, I only have one movie in the "Matrix Collection".

When I check their metadata in Emby I see:

Movie Emby Metadata edit: TheMovieDb Collection Id:
The Animatrix 2344
The Matrix 2344
The Matrix Reloaded 2344
The Matrix Revolutions 2344


  • I ran "Scan all library files"
  • I ran "refresh box sets" in Auto Box Sets plugin
  • I clicked each movies context menu in the library and clicked "refresh metadata" > Replace all metadata > Refresh
  • Refresh metadata on Movies and Collections libraries ( "refresh metadata" > Replace all metadata > Refresh )

Any ideas? Thanks.

If it's just the one collection - then I would remove the XML file, re-scan and then run the Auto-Box sets again to recreate it.

"<your emby location>\programdata\data\collections\The Matrix Collection [boxset]\collection.xml"

You can open the XML file in notepad etc and see the file paths - probably worth checking what it says before you delete it to see if it only has the one movie in it.

Thanks for the suggestion rbjtech.

I've only noticed the Matrix but there could be more so if this works I might delete/recreate them all.

I had a look at the xml file and it did only have the Animatrix in it.

I've just deleted:

/var/lib/emby/data/collections/The Matrix Collection [boxset]

Re-scanned Movies library and "refresh boxsets".

That fixed it! Thanks. I think somthing funny has gone on with it after having to recreate all my libraries again. I think I'll delete them all and re-create to make sure I won't have issues in the future. Thanks
