Corrections not syncing to iCloud

Hello,

thanks a lot for your reply!

Do you have “Background App Refresh” enabled for Infuse?

Yes, it is enabled. But since I do the tests with manually starting the sync, I think it doesn’t matter so much.

Does watched status sync between devices?

I just tested it - watched status does not sync. I was not aware of this because I rarely used my iPhone to watch movies or series, something I wanted to change recently.

I tested some more and observed another weird behaviour:

On the Apple TV, I added another favorite folder for my share (I only have one share, the SMB to my Raspberry NAS). Then I let the sync run. On my iPhone, the new favorite folder didn’t appear - but the small checkmark next to a favorite folder disappeared for one of the shared folders, at the same place where I added the new favorite folder on the Apple TV.

This sounds a bit complicated, so let me try to visualize it:

  1. Apple TV favorite folders of the SMB share:
    (Apple TV)
    "folder1"  [✔️]
    "folder2"  [✔️]
    "folder3"  [✔️]
    "folder4"  [  ]
    "folder5"  [  ]
  1. iPhone favorite folders of the SMB share:
    (iPhone)
    "folder1"  [✔️]
    "folder2"  [✔️]
    "folder3"  [✔️]
    "folder4"  [  ]
    "folder5"  [  ]

So they were the same.

  1. Then I added a folder to my Apple TV and it looked like this:
    (Apple TV)
    "folder1"  [✔️]
    "folder2"  [✔️]
    "folder2b" [  ]
    "folder3"  [✔️]
    "folder4"  [  ]
    "folder5"  [  ]
  1. After the sync of the Apple TV and on the iPhone, the iPhone favorite folders looked like this:
    (iPhone)
    "folder1"  [✔️]
    "folder2"  [✔️]
    "folder3"  [  ] <--- checkmark missing
    "folder4"  [  ]
    "folder5"  [  ]

So the checkmark disappeared on the third position, where - on the Apple TV - I added a new favorite folder (without a checkmark).

It seems the checkmark-information got synced, but not the favorite folder itself.

This is all such a weird behaviour, I find it really hard to see any patterns of the problem.

I really wish there were some kind of log file to understand what’s going on.
