Okay, please help a guy out:
I can’t figure out how to setup my two Apple TVs to take advantage of iCloud Sync.
What I have: two Apple TV 4Ks (5th Gen), Infuse Pro subscription, ridiculous amount of content on a local 40TB Synology NAS (3400+ movies, 10,800+ tv episodes). Not currently using Plex / Emby / Jellyfin etc. or Tract and would prefer not to, if possible. I create .nfo metadata with Kodi as part of my import process and download and archive relevant poster, folder, fanart, -thumb images with my files on the NAS. I also have an iPhone X and an old iPad Mini (that’s too old for Infuse 7), but I do not have a Mac.
What I’d like to do:
Synchronize shares, libraries, metadata, Infuse settings (including my Infuse Home Screen customizations), favorites, playlists, custom collections (when available), and current watch status (including ability to stop watching mid-movie/episode on one device and continue watching at that same point on the other) between both Apple TVs.
How do I begin?
I currently have two devices using the same source (my NAS) for content but with unsynchronized watch status and non-identical settings.
I recently turned on “iCloud Sync” on one of them.
What happens if I turn on iCloud Sync on the second device? Does 2nd device overwrite its current settings with the synced settings from the first device? Or do I need to first remove all existing shares and delete all metadata from the 2nd device prior to activating iCloud Sync on it?
Which items /won’t/ be synced?
Which items can only be synced if I use additional services/software?
Once both devices are synced, will watch status, playlists, settings, etc. changed on either device automatically populate to the other device?
