Prompted to select Movie title for folder instead of enclosed movies

Description

Running on AppleTV 2.4 Sapphire b7.

Have a network share setup through nitoTV. Network drive is 'Media' which appears in the 'Movies' folder. Enclosed on the Media drive is a folder named 'DVDs' that contains a number of DVD rips.

When attempting to import the data for the DVD rips, it seems to find the files inside the DVD folder but prompts me to select a movie title for 'DVDs' and not the actual movie name. This makes it hard to find the actual title since Sapphire thinks the movie title is 'DVDs'. If I choose a title, it seems to link it to the the movie it is currently working on.

Screenshot attached of Movies file list, and options menu of first file in the list. It shows the actual file name of 'Layer Cake'.

I've tried setting up the 'DVDs' folder as it's own collection, and telling it to ignore all other collections but the same issue appears.

Do you have "Directory Lookup" enabled in the settings?

Ah. That was it. Not sure how that got checked.

Thanks.

One more thing, it seems Sapphire names the cover art images using numbers, where before it used the movie name.

Is there anyway to revert to the old naming system? Before I could easily link nitoTV to the Sapphire covert art folder for playback of DVD rips.

Cheers.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to invalid

The numbers are the IMDB numbers. We changed to this system out of the fact that the IMDB numbers are unique, and the names are not. Sometimes a movie is remade, and a user made have both versions of the movie (with the same name), using the poster art to distinguish between them. We also did the same for TV episodes as well.

Anyway, closing this ticket since that pref resolved this.
