    Hello
    i think the listing using index due to big library you have.

    The concept of MP2 is to use different settings for each view level via the option "Filter". For example for series you could have series at top level as banner, seasons as posters and episodes as a list. SImilar things apply to movies.

    You may want to experiment a little bit with filter and view. Just keep in mind that a view applies to a dedicated level, whose display is governed by what you select, e.g. "All" for movies or genres or...

    interested to know, because if located on M.2 SSD, this can mean issue on numbers of entries.
    what is the size of the database ?

    It depends not really on us, but on what you set in your MP2 library settings. You may first want to check the WIKI of MP2 to understand how files are imported.

    Are . and , key broken on your keyboard? o_O
