Kodi & SPMC w/SQL -> Kodi & MrMC w/SQL?

Post by Mark_Venture » 03 Apr 2018, 14:55

I haven't used MrMC in a while. I know i purchased it and tried using it, but not sure why I stopped. So I have been using Kodi and SPMC on my Fire TV boxes (gen 1 and 2) for a while, with a common SQL database. I made sure to keep Kodi and SPMC at consistent levels (due to SQL). Actually I stuck on 16.x.

I had also moved their data to a MicroSD card (on gen2 boxes) and USB stick (on gen 1) using this process -> http://www.aftvnews.com/how-to-partiall ... b-storage/

With SPMC support going away, I want to replace my SPMC install with MrMC. I'd like to keep things similar to how I had them before, if possible.

I understand from searching past posts, I should be able to move MrMC to SD/USB using the same process (tweaking the path names). Is that correct? (based on tail end of this thread... https://mrmc.tv/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2 ... properties as well as https://mrmc.tv/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1 ... properties )... Can I copy/use the same XML files for passwords, sources, etc. with MrMC that I used with Kodi/SPMC to avoid having to setup those up again?

It appears the current version of MrMC is compatible with Kodi v17 from the SQL perspective. Is that correct?

With Amazon auto updating my apps and games, I'm guessing the same will happen with MRMC too? If so, what is the best way to keep at consistent levels with Kodi so the DB doesn't get messed up?

Anything else I should watch out for running Kodi and MrMC along side each other, using the same SQL database, on a Fire TV?

Lots of questions ;)

1) Yes, moving data to sdcard works the same as on spmc. The subdirectories will be different, though. Just copying/moving .spmc to .mrmc will do the trick
2) Current mrmc uses v17 of the db, so you can use the same mysql db with kodi krypton. Update from spmc16 should be seamless
3) Not sure what you mean with "best way to keep at consistent level"

Turn off auto updates if you want to have control over when Amazon will update Apps.

Thanks for the replies!! I appreciate it!!

@Koying, I had manually installed kodi and spmc so I could always keep them in sync and didn't have to worry about Amazon updating the apps. I guess I'll just have to do what @davilla suggested and turn off Auto-Update for the FireTV's...
