    I'm running mediaportal RC2 with several hard disk shares on the computer that contain my movies and tv shows and whatnot. I've got roommates with external hard drives with their own movies and tv shows that want to add to my database so we can watch it all on Mediaportal. The problem is that there is we each have some of the same movies. How can I set it up so that Mediaportal will add everything from my roommates hard disks to my Mediaportal movie/tv show database, but will skip anything that I already have on the database? For movies I'm just using the default movie database and then for Tv shows I'm using the TV Series plugin.
