Media scan taking days and still not finished


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I installed emby on a 414j a couple of weeks ago, and it is still scanning the library.

It's currently at approx 30%, i have no plug ins installed, and have disabled av etc on the has.

Any advice on how to get it to complete?

After a while it prevents me logging in to the server itself, to the point where i have had to reboot on occasion.

Currently it has been running for a week uninterrupted.

My initial scan on my DS216 play took a while also UNTIL I turned off the chapter image and subtitle scrapers and started back over.


After my initial scan, about 24 hours, it was up and running as I thought it should be, I turned back on all of the scrappers, except theme music, and scheduled all of those for 2 am.


It works like it should now, as I prefer it to.


I had "about" 4TB of media.


It was frustrating and I also posted questions like yours.

Hmmm, have switched everything off, still taking ages to run the scan, no scrapers running at all.

Also struggling to get the log file to post here.

It's not the posting that's the problem, it's the getting the file from the server I'm struggling with, not allowing me to copy and paste it, need to borrow a pc from somewhere instead of a tablet i think.
