I recently setup Emby Server for use with Kodi. After some messing around I have got done right I believe. It seems stable so I want to move on to setting up the clients. I have tried searching for instructions but I can't seem to find any step by step procedure. Might be I don't know exactly what I am looking to search for terminology wise.
I have been using XBMC/Kodi for year with MySQL and client setup is pretty straight forward via advancedsettings.xml and this makes client setup a breeze, it is done in seconds.
I am using Xios DS boxes for clients running a linux build of XBMC/Kodi as well as a couple of Android 5 phones.
I began setting up clients starting with my Galaxy Note 3, but it seems like I am missing something. I installed the Emby add on and configured it and it kicked off a from scratch database setup which will takes at least a few hours to run.
Should it not just see the database already setup on the server?
It seems like if that process completes I would end up with multiple databases and the would not be synced and that would be like using Kodi with standalone setup and be a step back.
Am I missing something? I was thinking of copying the databases from the server to each client but that would separate them again. Needless to say I am confused and seek help.
Thanks for reading and any help you can provide. And if I missed find this info somewhere here I do apologize, just not sure I am searching for the right stuff.
