I don't do anything special.  Its been a while, but I seem to remember 
that some default setting does not automatically update the video list 
when new vids are added. I am not home at the moment, so I cannot check, 
but I believe that under utilities/settings there is a menu item to manage 
videos and in that menu page is a check box that tells Myth to 
automatically update the video list. 

But it has been a while, so this may be a bad memory.
