This is nothing OSMC specific, rather than Kodi’s workings. But I find the group here always very knowlegdable and friendly, so I try here first.
I have 2 OSMC RPIs running and started playing with a central mysql database to keep watched status synced.
At the same time I wanted to use the same profiles between the two devices. So I set the profiles up nicely on the first device and thought about sharing it with the second. By my first attemps failed miserably. I copied userdata/profiles and userdata/profiles.xml. But that didn’t do the trick. I still had to setup all sources again and it started downloading metadata again.
So what am I missing? do I need to copy more?
My endgoal was to move the profiles info onto the server and mount them via nfs on the individual devices, hence keeping them completely synced. But for now I am already happy if I can get something correctly working by copying from device 1-> device 2.
If anyone has a better angle of attack to synced profiles between devices, I’m happy to hear it as well of course:-)
