When I go into my Manage Videos section to assign IMDB #'s to videos that I've backed up off of my DVD collection, it has the hundreds of TV episode captures that I have stored in my /myth/videos

What I'd like to do is have Manage Videos ignore all the files in /myth/videos/tv and only show the other files in /myth/videos

Is that possible? Is the list populated by a script that could just be altered a bit?

thanks!

If the video manager recognized folders it would work just as well.

Currently, you can set the video player to display folders. Then you can navigate the folders to the show you want. However, the video manager just dumps them into one big list. If the video manager allowed you to organize according to folders, then you would see a tv and movie list, and then navigate to the movie list. It'd cut down on the clutter.

You can set the video manager to show the directory structure instead of the standard view. I have this as the standard view gets a bit awkward when you've got a large number of movies.

Setup > Media > Videos > General > Then change the display method to 'listings'.

on further review, this setting only changes the view for file browsing in mythvideo, not in the video manager

anyone else have any ideas?

Ahh, I see. Sorry...

You could always make the directory you don't want to see unreadable by the mythtv user, that should stop it looking at it.

Try these commands as root:

Code:
#This line sets the directory (and all it's contents) to be owned by root, not mythtv
chown root /myth/video/tv -R
#This line sets the directory (and all it's contents) to only be accessible by it's owner
chmod 700 /myth/video/tv -R


Then run video manager, it shouldn't be able to see the contents of the /myth/video/tv directory now.
When you're done, this should set it back to normal:

Code:
#This line sets the directory (and all it's contents) to be owned by mythtv, not root
chown mythtv /myth/video/tv -R
#This line sets the directory (and all it's contents) to only be fully accessible by it's owner, and read/execute permissions for everyone else
chmod 755 /myth/video/tv -R
