Don’t forget that Infuse can only update when it’s the active app and your not watching a video. The Plex server has the advantage of being able to run on the server any time and as long as nessasary to update the metadata and have it ready to send to the plex players as soon as they request it.
I don’t think iCloud sync has to be onto update, mine updates fine without it. Mine will show Pending as long as it takes to wake the servers and associated drives then the updates occur.
Had the app running with the spinning wheel for the whole time. No update.
Last time I let it run overnight. Not sure how long it ran before everything just went to sleep and powered off for no activity so maybe 3 hours and still no update.
Then all of a sudden after doing this. It might update to “few days ago”. Never is consistsant. And taking over 30 minutes (might even be hours since it still didn’t update) makes me feel something is wrong or broken.
So in the end.
App was open and left on the library part with the spinning wheel “in progress” with no update.
Any other suggestions?
Am I better off NOT connecting it to a Plex server since it won’t use any of that metadata? And just use the same data location?
It does update, only if I let it run overnight for a few days, it will finally update. And if I try and update the “next” day, which will “add” about 10 files, still takes the same time.
I only say that as a precursor because I do not want you to think that I am doing a FULL library update this time.
With that being said.
500 movies files
and about 6000 TV Files.
Just went into infuse
TV Episodes: 7621
I have found that if I go into “settings” “library” it gives me a “fetching thumbnail” etc update. And after going there, it will update it on the main page. But if i do NOT go t settings/library, it wont update on main page.
I saw the news, my hope it is a mix of some miss configuration, with talking with plex, and I plan to start fresh with version 6…(essentially that was why I had spun up infuse again to see how everything was going)
I also say SHUFFLE finally on the upcoming pending changes. I cannot WAIT, then I can finally probably move completely over to Infuse over plex…not that plex is bad, but yeah!
