I also suggest you set the log level to "debug" and check the log files to see what is happening. From the log files you should be able to see what files are detected, what metadata ffmpeg (libav) reads, and what gets inserted in the database. You can also see if certain files cause problems.
Another suggestion would be to try scanning a smaller subset of your library. To start of maybe just a single album. If that screws up it is likely that the problem is related to libav (or some other dependency), but if it works it points to some special feature of your library being the culprit.
I am not able to find "avcon*" anywhere on the system. i have the latest forked-daapd installed.
I have started to debug and it seems to file and inventory is extermley slow (1-2 to items every few seconds). i will give it a few hours to inventory and see how it goes. I will see if "DR Who" shows up on iPad Remote App.

UPDATE: TV Shows are appearing. No Art work yet, but I am sure they will eventually come. I will wait a few more hours till the SQL is done and the items are inventoried. and report back. For now, this can be marked answered. thank you.
