I’m not sure if this is the right place to ask about this, but it’s probably a good place to start. If there is somewhere better to ask, please let me know.
I’m running OSMC RC 2 on a Raspberry Pi 2. I have a MySql database running on a NAS to share info between 2 OSMC setups.
I have two directories for my TV series, the ARCHIVE with series name/season/episode structure and the NEW with series name/episode. Everything in NEW is also in ARCHIVE. I delete anything in NEW after it is watched. This structure allows me to easily grab just the new stuff if I’m going on a trip.
Anyway, now to the issue I’m seeing. I access my TV shows through videos/files. When perusing the NEW or ARCHIVE directory, by stepping down I usually see the fanart and the description of the selected show. However, sometimes I see neither. It seems like if a show’s details are available in NEW, then they won’t show up in ARCHIVE, and vice-versa. If you refresh a show in ARCHIVE (including episodes), the info now shows up there, but vanishes for the same show in NEW.
I have a similar set-up for my movies. It does not exhibit the same loss of info when a movie is duplicated similarly.
I just went back and did the same test in Helix with Raspbmc on a Pi 1. The results are the same.
Any insight on how to resolve so the info shows up in both NEW and ARCHIVE would be great.
