Change Content Path

Question

Have a feeling I'm missing an obvious one here, but how do you change the content path?  I've got my NAS up and running now, copied the CV directory over to the appropriate share folder, but I can't seem to figure out how to change it in the CV addon.  If I click on the current content path, there's just an option to add a folder, but nothing to repoint.

 

Edit: Nevermind that.  Indeed I was missing the obvious one. :)

For those curious, the Content path setting can be found in the CinemaVision Add-on Settings under the Content menu. When you select a directory from that setting, it will use that directory as your new Content path.

The trick to it is the way Kodi navigates folders.  In my case, since I had moved the CV folder from my PC, which was being accessed via SMB share to a NAS to be accessed via NFS, I had to keep hitting the Folder Up (two dots) link until I got back to the Kodi top level structure where I could then navigate to NFS.

Side note, might not be a bad feature to add a "choose new path" option similar to what's available when pointing to an action file.
