OK.. Here's my problem. I dont have cable, so I stream everything to my TV through xbmc which is getting files from a win2k computer. The issue is that as I add files, I run out of disk space , no big deal, I can just add another hard drive. But when I want to watch something, I have to scan through 4 shares (I have 4 hard drives) to see all my files.
People have suggested I break them out by alphabet or by genre, but the maintenance on that is just going to be a big pain in the ass. I want to be ablet o boot up xbmc and select movies, then see a list of all movies on a PC even though the files may exist on different drives..
Anyone try to solve this? I am just wondering what other people are doing..
The only real solution that I have come up with is to modify the xbmc code to read in some kind of config file that lives on my fileserver and contains the name of the movie, followed by a path.. That shouldnt be too hard, but I think my xdk is way out of date..
I have tried creating windows shortcuts, but xbmc doesnt see those...
