Hi Peter,

sorry for the direct email, but your email didn't have a Reply-To 
header. So here it is again fot the list.


I'm referring to the scan in the frontend. I guess as a workoround I 
could run "mythutil --scanvideos" and fill the inetref column in the 
videometadata table with zeroes if filename contains the folder afterwards.

But a better way would be to have something like .nolookup in the folder 
or if it would be possible to disable metadatalookup per storagegroup. 
Then I could put these videos in its own storagegroup.
