I kind of got this partially answered about 5 months ago, but hadn't actually gotten around to getting it sorted out.  I understand Linux does not read the same directory structure as Windows does. I can't find a clear answer as to WHERE it will find the files. 
An example structure is:
Genre:
   Movie folder
                 BDMV folder:   
                             AuxData Folder
                             Backup Folder
                             BDJO folder
                             ClipInf folder
                             Jar folder
                             Meta folder
                             Playlist folder
                             Stream Folder
                                                   0000.m2ts

and some random files in the BDMV
root directory index.bmv
                      index.jpg
                      index_bdmv_JRSidecar.xml
                      MovieObject.bdmv

Where Does MC want to find them?
(also I know people recommend mkv files instead of m2ts, but the m2ts work fine, unless thats why they're not being found?

Thanks all...

Well after experimenting off and on for a couple days, I finally found what works.  The M2TS files are fine.  See original post for the original folder structure that you'll likely have if originally coming from a windows box. 

Linux wants a simplified version:

Movie Folder - M2TS or (MKV) file,  .jpg(of the cover) and JRSidecar.xml

After you move those 3 items to the root directory of the folder delete everything else.  (BDMV and Certificate folders)

Example for Blackhat:

Blackhat(folder)-  Blackhat.jpg   Blackhat.m2ts   Blackhat_m2ts_JRSidecar.xml

That's all you need!

Hope someone else finds this useful...
