I’ve been a Vero user for years, currently on the 4K, but will likely upgrade soon. I was wondering, what are other Vero user’s experiences with setting up a Kodi MySQL database to replace the sqlite one? Is it worth it, what are the benefits and downsides?
I’m not sure if I have enough reason to do it - I’m not using multiple devices now and I would only do it mainly for having a backup managed on my NAS instead of on the Vero device and to be more easily occasionally peek into the data. Sometimes I want to do some bulk updates to the data (e.g. root path change) or just out of curiosity see how it stores data. For example at the moment I’m trying to see if there’s some pattern in data for 3D movies that I could use as filter - I don’t use file name patterns with 3D in them.
I’m worrying that my NAS is slow to wake up since it usually only has to respond when I start playing a movie or when I scan for new movies I have preferred to let it sleep rest of the time. But if Kodi will be communicating with that machine’s MySQL server more often now, is there a risk of crashes when the NAS takes it’s time to wake up while Kodi is doing some UI actions?
