Quick history...  Lifetime premier member.  Just did a full system restore for other issues not related to Emby.  Emby updated and library rebuilt.  I also had to re-enter my premier key which I thought odd after a bit for bit system restore, but not the issue.


So I reinstalled the Podcast plugin before updating the library.  The podcast directory via WMC went wonky and displayed content other than podcasts, such as music and movies.  One time did notice that through the http://IP:8096 address, the podcasts were correctly listed (at least one of the many times I have uninstalled and reinstalled the plugin).


What happens now is that when I uninstall the Podcast plugin to try reinstalling, my entire library disappears in WMC -> Emby.  I rebuilt the library overnight, and all media returns.  Install Podcast plugin, library disappears again.  This time I delete the library.db file and rebuilt again, overnight.  Just tried installing the Podcast plugin again.....  BAM, library gone again.


I am pounding my head into the wall about now.  I have no idea where to start in trying to figure this out.  I have done all I know to do...

Something about Podcasts triggers the DB purge/rebuild discussed here:




Suggested fix is to update to the latest server beta.


But that exposes a new problem... in EMC Podcasts, rather than being sorted into their respective 'folders', list a few random entries & all remaining items are listed in a single sub-folder. Formerly, they were sorted by specific Podcaster. Trailers have a similar issue.

Apologies for the disruption. The beta server resolves this and we'll be getting a fix out soon. Thanks.
