I just downloaded Infuse 5 yesterday and re-set up my shares, etc… I was marking several videos as watched that I’d already viewed under v4. When I went to a different app and then later came back, I noticed that some of the videos I had marked as watched had indicators on them again, showing I had only watched part of the video. When I clicked them to play, it would ask me if I wanted to resume from 00:01. :-/ I marked them as watched again and some stayed and some didn’t when I would come back.
Also, it seems like if I choose a TV series, for example, from the “Up Next” bar it will immediately mark some of them previously watched episodes and partially watched yet again.
Is there any update of fixing this in 5? Getting a little old having to go back and remark shows as watched.
This is a repeatable bug in 5, I can watch a show, verify the watched indicator is ticked and leave infuse then go back and it shows that watched show as :01 second watched and asks to continue from there.
We haven’t been able to replicate the issue here, and so far have only had 1 or 2 reports of this. We had a few similar reports in v4, and it turned out to be related to the Apple TV running out of storage space.
There are a few things to check which may help.
Check Apple TV free space (Settings > General > Manage Storage)
Remove other copies of Infuse
If logged into trakt, try logging out then back in
Erm, what has screen resolution or refresh rate have to do with the watched indicators working or not?
I’m sorry, but your posts seem to be very random in their advice… As a beta tester, you should know full well that an installation of Infuse 4 has no bearing on an installation of Infuse 5, they are totally separate apps, share no common runtimes, executionables, resources or storage links within iOS.
I don’t think you have a storage space problem, I have over 6000 movies and TV episodes, and Infuse takes up about 30Mb of storage space for it’s DB.
One thing I have noticed with Infuse, is that it seems to only mark an episode or movie watched, if you have watched almost the entire thing. I don’t watch the credits at the end, and when I press stop, and Infuse goes back to the info screen, it often says that the file I have just watched is unwatched, so I end up manually pressing on watched in cases like that. I find that Infuse marks things as watched much more reliably when you watch the file to the end, and Infuse stops playback itself.
Another thing, is that if you don’t use Trakt, Infuse will still mark things as watched, however if you use another device, or end up re-installing Infuse, then there is nothing to tell Infuse about what has been watched or not. I use Trakt without any problems.
any update on this ?
Having the same issue, whereas episodes are marked partially watched (not necessarily 0:01, but anywhere on the timeline) whatever I do.
I can go and mark all episodes as watched and when I come back to infuse they are at the same partially watched state again … feels like this “database” is read only.
The media itself is on a SMB share.
Since I have iCloud-Sync set to on, I assume that iCloud never get’s updated and therefore overwrites the local marks when coming back.
In my case, when I upgraded to Infuse 5, many shows did not have the correct progress indicator. Infuse 4 was correct.
After logging in to the trak web site, I noticed that some shows were correct, some were not. It was not consistent with Infuse 4, but it was with Infuse 5. I had to manually mark the missing shows as watched and Trak updated correctly.
I then watched a show until the end. Infuse marked it as watched but trak was not updated. I had to reset the watched indicator manually (to unwatched and back to watched) and then trak was updated correctly. The fact that Infuse sometimes updates the indicator proves that the trak account info is correct and logged in correctly.
Is it possible the bug only happens when infuse automatically updates the indicator, but not when it is manually updated? It seems that Infuse 4 had the same problem updating the trak progress indicator when it is done automatically.
