It’s a 64 GB. Everytime I Format it with windows using list disk it formats it to a 64 GB. It shows 64 GB in explorer. Then I install osmc in it and it shows 239 MB in windows. Putting it in my vero it shows above written storage information.
It thinks or treats it like it is a 16 GB…
In Windows no unused space is shown, it only shows it as a 239 MB partition.
You don’t need to install OSMC on the sdcard unless you are trying to reinstall the V4K. It has its own storage for the OS. Format the card as you like in Windows and simply insert if you are just trying to add additional storage.
If you don’t want to use the SD Card on windows you should format it within the Vero4K and use EXT4.
If you also want to use it on Windows format it to exFat.
Well you will have to copy your movies onto the SD card than it will be there.
The configurations and also the Library Database normally remains on the internal storage of the Vero4K which is large enough.
OSMC which is running from the internal emmc is automatically updated when you update either via MyOSMC or the command line
Sorry, I maybe didn’t put it right. My library is on my NAS. So I only need the SD card for library information.
I always use for scraping only local information. But it copies the local information onto my system osmc.
A user with all library scanned in has around 3.2 GB. Since we have 5 to 6 family members the 14 GB are not enough.
Now I understand why it always showed it as 14 GB. Because it didn’t use my formatted and installed osmc on SD card, it used the internal storage. But this internal storage is not enough for my library and my kodi users. A kodi user had as said 3.2 GB and I need around 5 to 6 users.
So how can I store this data, or how can I use osmc in a way it can handle my huge library? Or in other words: how can I extend the system storage or in best case make one system partition with my 64 GB?
Also I see a problem now compared to my raspberry pis: here I can’t make a image of the sd card as backup. I normally always do, when all users are updated, a backup of my sd card on raspberry so I don’t need the library Scan on every TV and raspberry.
Happy that there is a solution. Thanks for sharing. Would you be so kind, since I am a big newbie to share a tutorial which I can use?
I minimized the space necessary. I used emby but it is too slow sometimes. I have all my covers all Metadata on the server but eben with that it need slot or space for actors. As said, my library needs per user 3.2 GB. And that’s only the totally necessary files on the system to run.
For most people the system storage will be more than enough. For others even your 64GB might not be enough. It all depends on the size of your library, how much art (thumbnails, fanart, backgrounds etc…) you will store. In your case, since each user has his own problem but accesses the same library you basicly have 5-6 the same data with the exception of probably the status (# times played).
In your case storing the thumbnails with the 1st method I proposed might be the best option as these are (mostly) all the same for all your users. You can either do a path substitution to your NAS or to a fix directory (e.g. /home/osmc/thumbnails).
