    Does the File Monitoring work on Network Shares (mapped drives in particular), im pretty sure its not working for me when I add new shows to the watched directory.

    Is this a known issue/deficiency? Will UNC paths make a difference?

    Works fine for me, does it only NOT work after you went to sleep and woke back up?

    I might have to re-register the file monitors in that case (the plugin is now detecting wakup-up events).

    Ok, I tested after wake-up from standby and it doesn't work.

    I tested after that by restarting Media Portal and it worked.

    Guess all you need to do then is re-register the file-monitors :)

    Cheers,
