Updating / scanning with a shared library - deviantintegral - 2012-03-31 00:28
I'm moving from a single XBMC instance to multiple instances, one running on OS X and the original instance on Linux. I've set up MySQL, shared thumbnails, etc, but am running into a problem with updating library content. I'm using a path substitution in advancedsettings.xml to rewrite a local Linux path to an SMB path to share with the OS X machine. I can import the library to MySQL, play content, and so on without issue. However, if the OS X instance tries to update the library, it saves them to the database without the path substitution, but instead with the SMB path. This causes all content to be duplicated. So, a few questions:

1. Make sure you add sources to the OSX instance exactly the same as the Linux instance. Copy the sources.xml file over is probably the way to go.
2. Once 1 is taken care of, you should be fine.
3. That's also an option, yes.

Interesting. I did copy my sources.xml, and that was causing the duplicate entries. So if that's not the expected behavior, I'll gather up some debug logs and file a report.
