Way to prevent all folders from showing up in each XMB cat?

Post by enright » Fri Feb 13, 2009 5:39 am

A minor issue, but for some reason it really irks me:

Is there a way prevent all shared folders from showing up in each XMB category? In other words, when I go to the "Video" tab on the XMB, then select my media server - is there a way to have only my video shared folder show up? Currently, my Music, Photos, and Video folders all show up in every XMB tab - even though there are no Music files in my Video shared folder, and visa versa.

I'm using Twonky on a HP MediaSmart server, and I've specified the media type for each shared folder (e.g. my Videos folder has only the content type "Videos" selected).

Thanks!

John

No, the PS3 needs to "hint", as the media type, and it does not, so Twonky has to offer all content folders.
