You mean QNAP is stuck on installing the qpkg?

Yup..it finally stopped and asked in I wanted to cancel...I did and tried again...same. 

Rebooted...same.

I ended up manually deleting the installation and reinstalling from scratch....looks like all is good now.

In less than 8 hours, it's repopulated about 3/4's of the metadata, so that in itself is a great improvement. 

Starting from scratch before use to take about 4 days to complete the first scan

This is normal behavior!!

On 75% it is resetting all ownerships of the files in the EmbyServer directory.

I doubt the need, but you should really let the installer take its time!!

Could be..it was getting up to about 2 hours wait when I 1st cancelled it. BUT...the file count when deleting was in excess of 200,000 (don't remember the exact total),

So that could have explained the long delay. 

There was also a long wait when TVdb and MovieDb were installed and updating a few days prior...I didn't pay attention to how long though.

Just noticed after the last update that certain A files are not appearing.

 

NOT ALL FILES BEGINNING WITH "A"....but files containing a single A as a start of a title 

 

Such as...

 

A.I Artificial Intelligence

The A List

A.P. Bio

A.N.T Farm

The A-Team

A.D The Bible Continues

 

It appears only to be "A" files as Z-Nation and The X-Files appear OK and again...all other "A" files show up...Aaron Stone, Abby's, The ABC Murders etc..... 

 

I just ran a library scan and they still don't appear....if I search the titles, they appear in the results though. 

If I change the SORT to sort by date added, I can scroll through and find them also, so it only appears to affect the sort by name option. 

 

 

I should add...this is a fresh install on a new TVS-473e....so technically it wasn't an update...the last version was on the TS-453a

So it sounds like they are appearing, but you need to check their sort titles. You probably customized the sort title and have forgotten that you did that.

Nope...no customizations.or filters.

 

Looking through the Media Manager, the files are listed in the wrong order.....

 

A.P. Bio is listed under "P"

A.D The Bible Continues is under "D"

A.N.T. Farm is under "N"

 

The A-Team is listed under "A" but between "The Assets" and "Atlantis High" 

 

A Touch of Frost is listed under "T"

 

The A List is listed under "L"

I would use the metadata editor to check the sort titles for those items. Please let us know if this helps. Thanks.

The original and sort title fields are empty on all titles, but populating the sort title of the problem files seems to correct the problem.

I don't remember if these fields were left empty on prior versions.

 

Thanks Luke...that's an easy enough fix to make and then lock the title from changes.

Thanks, I think we just need to improve our handling of those abbreviated titles.

This is intended behaviour, very difficult to get right and why the Sort title field exists at all.
 
It happens because the following alterations are made to the title string before sorting:-
  • dot, plus and percentage symbols are replaced with spaces
  • comma, ampersand, dash, curly brackets (braces) and single quote symbols are removed
  • a, an, and the articles are removed
If you look carefully all of your examples are consistent with these rules e.g. The A-Team sorts as ATeam (the dash gets removed making ATeam a single word) which comes after Assets and before Atlantis High.
 
This is relatively simple in English but not so in other languages, for example the German equivalent of the English definite article the can be der, das, die, den, dem or des depending on the declension. An  example in French would be enfant (child, kid, little boy but not little girl), l'enfant (the child) and des enfants (children) which should all sort together but require very different rules to English. There are also wacky edge cases like punk band The The which default sorts as nothing.
 

Thanks Luke...that's an easy enough fix to make and then lock the title from changes.

 
Locking titles shouldn't be necessary as the metadata scrapers don't populate the Sort title field.
