MediaTomb library refresh

I'm still searching for the holy grail of distributing all media around the home and still keep coming back to MediaTomb running on my NAS as a music fall back.  But something that always goes wrong is its inability to update the db with changes.  Every time I go through the same hoops of trying to refresh manually, adding/removing directories.  And each time it fails and I check my blog for what I did last time, which I;ve never added ! so here it is

Kill the mediatomb process and delete the .db files, start mediatomb and add the Media directory, wait 4 hours .. Job Done !
