I just upgraded to MythTV 0.24 and noticed that video metadata is 
created/updated automatically - which is great, however it seems to get 
it wrong a lot of the time.

For example, I have a directory called /mythtv/videos/XFiles/Season X/ 
(X=1-9) and within each directory I have files named "Title.mpg" (title 
being that listed here 

The Automatic Scan has changed the metadata to random videos that I have 
elsewhere - i.e. the Title, Subtitle and Cover Art is that of other 
videos I have in other directories.

In addition, this has happened with lots of other directories with 
hundreds of videos.


Is there a way I can reset the metadata to none/empty for entire 
directories? rather than per video?

Is there a way I can exclude directories from being auto-scanned in the 

Thanks in advance.
