Missing Main Menu Entries on iPad Pro (MrMC 3.3.1 iOS 11.1.2)

Post by bayarnd » 17 Dec 2017, 21:03

Under Settings (skin: Opacity) I selected all 9 available main menu items. The main menu shows only 6 entries, e.g. “TV Shows” is missing.
Under Media Sources I configured an NFS mounted source directory with the content type “TV shows”, and I can see the video files listed under “Media Sources / Video” but there is no “TV Shows” entry in the main menu. I restarted the app, deleted and reconfigured the source directory, unchecked and rechecked the menu entry under Settings / Skin / Main menu etc without success.
Any idea what else could be wrong?

Thank you..

Did you scan the media source to add the files to the library?

I selected the TV Show source directory under “Media Sources / Video” and clicked on “Scan for new content” a few times..
Is there another scan function to add files to the library?

After you clicked scan for new content did it look like anything was added?

No. But I am testing this configuration with only 2 folders and 6 video files in the source directory, so the rescan might be too fast to notice?
There is also no TVDB metadata retrieved, but I can see and play the tv video files under “Media Sources / Video / ..”

Also: I noticed that the main menu items TV Shows, TV, Radio and Music Videos do not appear in the main menu, no matter whether I check or uncheck these options.
But the menu items “Pictures” and “Favorites” appear or disappear, when I check those on or off under Settings.

movies,TV Shows, TV, Radio and Music Videos entries require sources to be set for them.

you need to separate them in individual folders, find those folders using “Media Sources / Video / ..” set the content for each and let MrMC scan it in.

Yeah those only show if there's something to show, even if you check it or not. It seems like the files you're trying to add aren't getting properly scanned in, so the debug log will help the devs/others to put you on the right track.

Debug Log: https://pastebin.com/hnHPwPAU

Some success! I read the log (great web tool btw) and i think i understand the problem now. I changed the file and naming structure in a new test source directory and I have the TV Series menu entry now, and I can see the episodes in my library. Please let me know if I got this right?

Apparently TV Series are only added to the main menu library, if the TVDB scraper finds episode metadata.

15:23:06 T:6133035008 DEBUG: scraper: GetSearchResults returned <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" standalone="yes"?><results></results>
15:23:06 T:6133035008 WARNING: No information found for item 'nfs://192.168.1.102/nfs/Public/Shared Videos/TV Series Test/Lucifer (Season 1)/', it won't be added to the library.


The scraper does not retrieve episode names recursively from subdirectories to search TVDB if the folder name is not identified as a TV Series name..

My folder structure is like this:

Lucifer (Season 1)
Lucifer S01E01
Lucifer S01E02
..

Lucifer (Season 2)
Lucifer S02E01
Lucifer S02E02
..

In this case, "Lucifer (Season 1)" was not found as a series name on TVDB and returned an error.

I changed the folder name to just "Lucifer", and then the scraper found the correct series and episode metadata and the files were added to the library and the main menu item TV Series was created.

So instead of having a TV series on my server with 13 folders for seasons 1 to 13 (e.g. "NCIS Season 1" .. "NCIS Season 13"), it appears I'd have to copy all episodes of all seasons into one folder ("NCIS"), in order to see them in MrMC, is that correct?

I set the option “Flatten TV Seasons” to “Never”, and the library shows the files sorted by seasons.. nice!

I do this (and most people I know do it the same):

/TV Shows
-->Lucifer
----> Season 1
------> Lucifer.S01E01.mkv
----> Season 2
------> Lucifer.S02E01.mkv

You'd have the show name, then season folders with the individual episodes in each season folder.
