    I have a few live concert dvd's in Plex that are not scrapping of course. Is there any way to do this ?

    Also, there is a rogue "show" listed under my TV shows that will not delete and the file was never on my computer..Any ideas how to remove it?

    bump time

    Looks like I am not the only one stumped!

    Plex will only scrape something if it exists in the database you are pulling from. So for your concert DVD's they would have to exist in TheMovieDB or wherever you are pulling the info from... if they don't exist there then it can't get data.

    You should be able to remove the TV show by going in the settings then selecting video and choosing "clean library". If the file that TV show is pointing to doesn't exist anymore it should be removed. I think if you select the TV show and press "C" on your keyboard you might be able to remove it that way also.

    for the file that won't delete, on the info screen, check the file location to see what file it's pointing to, make sure it really doesn't exist. When i was originally scraping, i had some folders with "extras" from the DVDs in them that had weird names, and somehow they matched up with stuff that even stranger from whatever online DB i was using.

    Haven't tried this, but it might work, do at your own risk.
    you could try exporting the database, which dumps to an XML file, then find the corresponding entry in that file, delete it, completely empty your library, then import

    I would ask on the plex forums, might have better luck there than here for specific problems like this.


    for the ripped DVDs check out this page it deals with .nfo files, which are text files that you create, to fill in all the data that would normally be scraped.

    I posted on the Plex forums and no luck there either. Guess I will just have to deal with it!

    Have you tried the Plex Database Editor? You might be able to remove the file listing with that...
