Classification of a mini-series in Serviio

So I loaded up my copy of "From Earth to the Moon", a TV mini-series of 12 episodes. I manually embedded metadata for Show name, season and episode number and have the IMDB 'tt' number in the folder name. My thought was that this would classify as a Series, and it does show up there, but also in the dynamic Movies folders...? IMDB classifies it as a TV-mini Series as well, so from both the embedded and online sources, it should be under Series only (I think). Anyone else have this issue with mini-series...not really a multi-Seasonal 'Series' but not really a movie either... ? :?:

Re: Classification of a mini-series in Serviio

I have the same videos, and Serviio just lists them as a Series. There's a switch on the console that can be set to only display series in that category, so they don't also appear in the Movies category. It's at the bottom of the Presentation tab, labeled "Show Series in relevant categories only". Make sure that box is checked so your series doesn't appear under Movies as well. And that setting is global, meaning you can't trigger it per series. It's all or none.
