Can't clear video files database
« on: November 05, 2007, 06:50:43 pm »
Hi all

Using Myth TV in LinuxMCE seems to generate lots of video file entries that get left behind even though the actual media has expired from the system.

I cannot delete any of these files in LMCE and I was wondering if anyone else has this problem and whether it can be fixed.

I think mine is also doing this too. Im not 100% as I had a lot of videos all in the same name I will double check tonight. ALthough im pretty sure i have seen something on the forums previously about this.

Lots of videos with the same name is the same symptom. None of these can either be played or deleted.

Anyone?

Is it possible to see these entries in the admin website and delete them from there?
