Just wondering why MCM is setting some of my movies to 'adult'. These are just normal movies like Eagle Eye etc, not porn.

If I remove my TV etc folders in MCM config and only point to the movies folders I can force it to set them as Movie using the 'mode always overrides detection' option but I was wondering why they are coming up as Adult when they shouldn't be, and what I can do to make it auto-detect correctly in future.

Cheers, and keep up the great work on this sweet app.

The how's and why's of the 'Mixed' and 'Adult' auto-detected types have been discussed several times already. Try this post here.

OK, yeah I did try searching the forums but no matter what I searched on it either found nothing, or had too many results so didn't display any at all.

After reading your linked posts, my understanding is this:
-MCM determines the root/shared folder as the type of content based on it's name ('movies', 'tv', etc)
-if that is not clear/understood, it scans the subfolders for the first one that contains metadata, and then assumes all others (without metadata) are the same type

It still doesn't really explain how some of my movies became 'adult' when I don't have any porn on my PC. Anyway, I have manually fixed these and it hasn't happened since so it's all good, and now I know to add the individual folders (instead of the root shared folder) which is possibly where I went wrong when I ran the initial metadata update on my files.

Thanks for the reply! I have another question/feature request, but it's different subject so I will post it in a seperate post. :)
