Browse view mistakenly reads contents of home directory

Cc: Ticket locked: yes


I bought a Dragon from Stormlogic/, and have run into a problem that the fine support people there attribute to a possible bug with MythVideo?.

For reasons unknown, when I switch to Browse view, I not only see the videos contained in /myth/video, I also see all of the folders and files in the home directory (/home/mythtv), whether they're videos or not. Any changes to the contents of the home directory is reflected in MythVideo?. This makes the Browse view completely unusable for me.

Another symptom, which I believe is related, is that when I'm in the default view (Gallery?), the first thing I see is two folders, one labelled "videos", which contains my videos, and another which is unlabelled and contains all the files and folders in the home directory (/home/mythtv). As I understand, I should not see either of these folders, and indeed, there is no folder named "videos" in the file system under /myth/video.

The Stormlogic people have never run into these issues before, and I can't understand what I might have done to cause this to happen, but obviously, something is amiss.

I've verified in Utilities/Setup? / Media Settings / Videos that the directory containing videos is indeed /myth/video. I've also looked carefully in /myth/video to see whether there is a symlink to /home/mythtv, but all I see is:

drwxr-xr-x 2 mythtv mythtv 4096 Jan 14 23:36 .covers lrwxrwxrwx 1 mythtv mythtv 18 Jan 14 23:25 adultes -> /mnt/video_adultes drwxr-xr-x 2 mythtv mythtv 4096 Dec 23 00:25 archive lrwxrwxrwx 1 mythtv mythtv 18 Jan 14 23:25 enfants -> /mnt/video_enfants drwxrwxr-x 2 mythtv mythtv 4096 Dec 23 00:25 motion

(the symlinks are to network mounted drives containing my videos)

Any clue as to what might be happening?

Thanks, Alain.

No reason given for closing this ticket and marking it invalid. This is still a very real problem for me. Don't you want to ask me any questions? Maybe you need proof? I'm willing to assist, just ask.
