Hello everyone, looking for some help if possible.
New user to Infuse and impressed with the Plex and Trakt intergration, the main reason being the ability to download TV Shows/Movies from my Plex server with no transcoding enabling me to watch my media anywhere without an internet connection.
Once a file downloaded it states the file is ‘synced’ however I’m finding this not to be the case. All it seems to be doing is downloading the file from the Plex server and essentially creating a separate library and that’s where the ‘syncing’ stops.
If the local file stored on the iPad is watched or part watched this information isn’t ‘synced’ with the remote file and once connected to the internet again in turn doesn’t update Trakt. I have two folder covers for remote and local files with different episodes marked as watched. Surely if the downloaded episodes are synced then that’s what should happen?
I have an app called Couchy which I could manually mark TV shows as watched but the major issue with that is part watched episodes and carrying on viewing from a different device and marking Movies as watched. If I watch an episode on my WiFi network which is stored on my Plex server then Trakt works perfectly and immediately updates Plex. So unless I’m missing something Trakt isn’t the issue.
Don’t know if I’m explaining myself properly but an example of what I hoped would happen is:
- Browse Plex library and download TV show episode S01E01 to my iPad to watch offline.
- Watch 3/4 of episode S01E01 offline through Infuse.
- Return home and launch Infuse.
- Infuse syncs watched information with episode S01E01 stored on iPad and Plex library in Infuse.
- Trakt then syncs watched information with Plex server
- Continue watching S01E01 on Plex through smart TV.
Sorry for waffling, would really appreciate if someone could let me know if I’m doing something wrong or even if step 4 is possible?
