    I have a problem with multi part movies. I usually have mediaportal running while I copy movies through wireless lan on the HTPC in the movie folder.

    The problem is that when I begin to copy the first file of the movie (say _cd1) moving pictures does a first scan and creates a DB entry without waiting for the copy to complete. When I begin to copy the second file (_cd2) it creates another DB entry with the same movie title.

    So I end up having two entries in DB, one for the first file and one for the second. Do you think this problem could be solved? (maybe by verifying if the movie still exists in database and linking the second file to the existing entry, or with a configurable time to wait for a possible second file)?

    Wouldn't joining the two files together be a lot easier??


    I have several movies that span two sides of a dvd (Robin Hood Prince of Thieves, Dances With Wolves, and Amadeus). I ripped both sides of the disk separately and joined them, creating a single ISO file.

    I'm not using Moving Pictures yet, but when they finally add support for the entire MyVideos database, I will give it a try.
