Hi all,

finally, I was able to fix up this issue in my Kodi setup [?]

I spotted the following line in my kodi.log:

GetResumeItemOffset - Cannot open VideoDatabase

And this line showed the track to the actual problem - in some way the
movie database was messed up, so I simply removed it and now kodi created a
new one and finally scans my movies!

Ciao, Fabian
