How to stop Infuse 5 to duplicate movies (ATV4 + Qnap)?


I have just installed Infuse 5 on Apple TV4 and am using Qnap nas with ATV4. After installing Infuse 5 it started to duplicate movies on Qnap in different folders and those duplicates take additional storage space. Can you please advise on how to stop Infuse 5 from duplicating movies?


We’ve seen a few cases of this, and it seems to be related to the caching/indexing of some UPnP/DLNA devices.

If you are able to connect to your NAS via SMB, NFS, FTP/SFTP, or WebDAV you should be able to avoid this issue.

I connected my NAS via SMB. I can try to connect via the FTP to see if it’ll solve the problem of duplicates - will keep you posted. But Infuse 5 with SMB connection does for sure create multiple copies of movies.
