Hi all,

I've had issues for several years with MCM accessing the JSON-RPC interface to update my library automatically after downloading new TV episodes. It seems to be something completely unique to my configuration, but in the off chance that anybody else has the issue, I wanted to provide a workaround.

According to the XBMC wiki, you can download cURL and POST the request for a library update via the windows command prompt:

http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=HO ... te_library

I made a .bat file with the following command:

curl -i -X POST -d "{\"jsonrpc\": \"2.0\", \"method\": \"VideoLibrary.Scan\", \"id\": \"mybash\"}" -H "content-type:application/json" http://<your_xbmc_username>:<your_xbmc_password>@<your_xbmc_ip_and_port>/jsonrpc

In MCM, settings, Post-Processing tab, I simply checked the box for "Enable T.V. episode post-processing" and pointed it to the .bat file I created with the cURL command.

Now, every time MCM process a TV episode, it runs the command and XBMC updates the library.
