Is there any real progress on this? I use Infuse on two Apple TVs (one current/wired and one generation older wireless), iPad Pro, and an iPhone XS. I have let the library update completely, and though I have a rather large library, I feel like the scans take WAAAAAY too long.
For example, on the wireless Apple TV, I ran a scan 10 days ago. Since then, I’ve added maybe 40 episodes and 5 movies. The update scan took nearly TWO HOURS to complete while on the library screen.
My iPad, which is used less often, was scanned a few days ago, but it is still updating on the library screen and has been doing so for the past 20+ minutes.
My wired Apple TV tends to take 20-30 minutes, though I’ve not checked since this past update.
The On Deck updates first and relatively quickly compared to the rest of the process, but if I watch a show from going directly to the server (or even from searching) as opposed to the library, it often does not add it to the On Deck/Watching queue, but will update the watched status. Going to the library sections such as TV Shows, populating the list can be VERY slow (literal minutes).
I find it strange how amazingly files play, but how much of a struggle the library portion of the app has become. As this is happening across devices, wired and wirelessly, etc., I don’t feel like this a “one-off” issue but rather a flaw of the design. Unless I’ve missed something, something really needs to be changed and improved on this front.
On a related note, wouldn’t it help with general organization as well as cutting down on list population sizes and times to consolidate seasons of shows into one listing as opposed to listing every season as a separate entity? Also, multiple copies of movies act the same way (if you have a 4K version, a 3D, and a 1080p version for example, it will list the movie three times as opposed to nesting and allowing the user to choose which version to play from that movie’s screen).
