For some reason, when I add videos or DVD files (ie Video_TS) they don't show up after the reimport, but will eventually the next day (I haven't figured out yet when exactly, ie whether it happens when I restart the PC or some other time).

In "Media Source Overview" I click "reimport". It says "Importing...".
This works for shows added to Recorded TV, but not for files added to Videos.

Any idea why this is and what to do to have newly added videos show up immediately?

    Which version of MP2 are you using. The import process for older versions was slightly different.
    Normally the media items show once the import is completed. Automatic adding of new items can be handled by ticking the option "share watcher" once a share is added. Details are described in documentation/WIKI.

    I have upgraded to MP2 from MP1 and all works except that when I record TV shows, they record fine on the NAS share but they don't show up in 'Recordings' unless I manually reimport. Also I cant delete watched recordings using MP2 - it doesn't give any errors, just doesn't delete the recording. Its strange because it seems all the...

    Thank you for performing this test, and confirming @joecrow 's suspicion as to the cause of the problem. In principle the same problem exists with other EPG sources, such as the broadcast EPG that I use with DVB-T/T2. When a programme first appears in the EPG (7 days ahead of its broadcast time), some programmes have a generic...
