I have two questions for the group.
1. I would like to add xvid content to the Linux MCE database that is stored on a 750gig usb drive on a Windows XP machine. The XP machine does not go thru the Linux MCE box on the Eth1 card but is connected thru my D-Link routed. I can see the drive from the Kubuntu file manager. If I go to the admin page of Linux MCE, Media files, Video (doing this from memory not at home looking at the MCE) I see the directory that media files are in on the MCE box, and there is an add directory that just adds a directory to the local HDD. Can I point to a remote HDD or file?
2. I also have MP3 files in directories that are Billboard top 100 songs from 1949 to 2005 and some times I just like to pick a year. The Linux MCE structure as I understand wants Artist, Album format and many of my files are in the structure. Others are 1 or 2 hit wonders and have no Album as with many of my old 45 records (I know I am giving my age away here). Do I have to edit the attribute tags associated with each of the MP3 files, I have some 10,000 files and would hate to do this on each of the files.
