can the mysql database be updated without mrmc?

Post by theRCRH » 23 May 2016, 20:21

While I get that the centralized database is nice if you have multiple clients I'm looking for another feature that doesn't seem to be addressed. If I get my mrmc database running on my UnRaid server I still have to wait for a library scan to complete each time I start up MRMC on my multiple fireTv's. That seems like something that could be done in the middle of the night or any time new content is added. I've got a pretty big library and having to wait for eight drives to spin up and 10tb to be scanned through to add one new show that I want to watch is frustrating. I really want to turn on my firetv and KNOW that my database is up to date & ready to go.
Have I missed "the trick" that everyone else is using? Or do I have to move to plex or emby for my back end?
Thanks in advance.

Personally, I have a Raspberry Pi 2 that's running 24/7 and it will do a library update every 2 hours, which picks up my new DVR stuff. When I rip a BluRay I use Filebot to rename and sort it into the right folder, and part of that also sends a JSON API update message to force an update.

Tim, I'm guessing your rpi is running mrmc or kodi?

It would be disappointing if my always on server wasn't enough and that I'd have to go out and buy another computer & keep it running to do this.

It's running LibreELEC (Kodi). What's the server that you use? There's other options that you can probably do. I have the MySQL server and all the files running on a Synology NAS, and there's probably a way I could run a headless Kodi Docker, but doing it that way for me would probably be a huge pain. A RPi is extremely low power usage, so having it run all the time isn't a huge deal for me.

I'm running an UnRaid server on pretty seriously low end hardware. I've just started looking at docker and hadn't thought that I'd be able to run kodi in a docker. hmmm.

BTW, I hadn't heard of LibreElec. I used to run OpenElec. Is this a competition or a progression of the project?
