Description

This has happened on older loads of Boxee (1.1 most recently) but it is happening on 1.2 as well.

Sometimes, when Boxee scans a share that contains shows, and new episodes of the show have been added, Boxee ends up creating a completely new artwork folder in the shows section for the newly discovered episodes, when they should be stored under the same icon/section for the previous episodes of that show which Boxee already knows about.

For example, I was adding Season 3 True Blood to my "shows" share on SMB drive and had initially added episodes 1-5 and then set up NFO files with Media Manager. Boxee has no problem and the shows are scanned and show up under my custom artwork as True Blood and the five episodes are there.

Then a few days later I ripped the final seven episodes and put them in the same folder as the other ones, re-run ember and the new episodes have NFO, etc, created. Boxee then, at some later time picks up the new episodes 6-12 but ends up putting them into a new True Blood show section with just those new episodes showing up. So, when I look at "shows" from the home screen, I see two artwork images for True Blood, navigating to one gives me episodes 1-5, navigating to the other one shows episodes 6-12.

Re-scan does not fix this. The only thing that fixes the problem is to remove the share and re-add it, or purge all media library info and re-scan everything. Both recovery methods are tedious.
