I noticed this weird bug last night. I don't know when it started. I looked through some of my older scanned contents and the problem appears there as well.

Can you confirm you are NOT using the Emby for Kodi beta?

I am using it. 

 

I am going around fixing these manually. Should I just leave them in case the addon is what causing the problem?

Hi guys, I am having the same issue.
I reported it in the windows server thread but it appears to have something to do with the kodi plugin.

I am using the old plugin. It appears that the plugin somehow corrupts the metadata on the server after you watch an episode.

This has been happening since the server upgraded a couple of days ago if I remember correctly.

I have 2 kodi clients and the problem appears on both of them.

The strange thing is that it doesn't appear on all files, just on a few shows.

If you know how to recreate this, what we really need is a SERVER log to see what is happening.  Seems like somehow when we send a 'watched' update it is causing something wacky to happen.  It is weird because I don't really get how we can be changing the database as we consider it read only other than 'played'.

is the addon or perhaps kodi updating the metadata to include the watched flag in the nfo? perhaps something is going on there that needs to be looked at.

If we were talking about just the new addon, I might think Kodi was messing the the NFO file.  But I can't see how the old one would do that.

 

Is there any way to tell Emby not to look at nfo files at all?

The part of the log I posted in this thread doesn't help?

if you use old style xml then you can prioritize that over nfo, but if all you have is nfo then no, there is no ignore setting. There's nothing wrong with that, but isn't it beside the point? what if the user wants nfo metadata?

It might, but you need to tell us what it means.  What did you do exactly the triggered that?

 

Luke - one thing we are doing in the old addon is manually sending a post to marked watched.  This is not really needed anymore since the server does it as well, but I don't see how it could corrupt anything.

 

The new addon used to do this too - but we have removed it.

Just for testing.

well to trace this down i would watch the media folder for nfo changes. then if there's a change, find out who is making the change. that should solve the mystery.

Yeah - do you guys have NFO files?  I don't use them - and I think I have seen the problem anyway but not positive.

If you referring to me, all I did is watch an episode. After it was over I pushed stop and the media browser plugin started syncing with the server all of a sudden a season unknown folder appeared with the episode I just watched in it.

I don't really maintain nfo files but some of my movies have them but not tv shows. 

 

I created this post http://emby.media/co...isodes-with-00/ before I understood the issues were related. Having multiple episodes in Kodi with 00 was from the start. Right after Emby finished syncing. I went on the web client to see if it was pulling the wrong data from the server and noticed the changes.

Okay - so please confirm you do NOT have NFO files for the problem TV show.

I do not have any nfo files for tv shows. Also I never noticed the problem with the older addon.

This issue wasn't present with older versions of the server, I don't know for sure from what version this started happening.

Is there a way that I could fix the metadata or redownload it without losing the watched status of the media?

@Luke - so this has nothing to do with NFO files.. Any other ideas?

well he said he doesn't use nfo files but that doesn't mean kodi or something else didn't save one.

 

if that's not it then i really don't know. someone will have to reproduce and monitor who's touching what.
