Thanks,but what seems to be happening to me is I get 3 TV_Series entries 
in the play video menu...

I have tried under mythtv-setup to enter the paths on one line like 
/mnt/video1/TV_Series/ /mnt/video2/TV_Series/ /mnt/video4/TV_Series,when 
I do this, setup thinks this is all one path and that it doesn’t 
exist...I have tried , : ; as separators,but even that don't help... I 
just can't find the proper doc's to get this set right....

I guess I need an example..
