    I wanted to have a separate folder for my personal DVD TV shows that I converted to media files and put in MP1. I was told it was probably not possible to have "TV Shows" at the top level along with Movies, Music, Pictures but would have to have a sub category under Movies(VIdeos) for the TV Shows. Can MPTVSeries force create a top level "TV Shows" area that points to it's own folder (i.e. not scan the whole hard drive)?

    Thanks.

    Create a root folder called TVshows and point mptvseries at it and provided the files are named correctly you should be ok.

    Thanks. When you say "root folder" are you talking within MP1 or just on the hard drive somewhere?

    Thanks.

    You can also create views, even custom ones, and set MP-TVSeries to use ViewTags as the default view. Then MP-TVSeries becomes more alike to Moving-Pictures in the way that shows are listed with main categories filtering first.
