How often does EmbyCon refresh from the server? At Kodi startup? At specific intervals?

EmbyCon loads the data from the server as you request it.

Think of it like a web page, when you load a web page in your browser the browser retrieves the data from the server then displays it.

I use KODI to play music in the background and when the screensaver activates the music stops playing. This happens with music playing with embycon and from other sources. If I disable embycon this does not happen and the music keeps playing with the screensaver active.

I know what this is, I though I added a setting for this but it looks like I did not.

I will add a setting to the screen saver option in the EmbyCon Addon to turn this behavior off.

Movie sets are a little weird with the different watched/unwatched views...

 

Only unwatched, all sets show. Sets with watched movies in them show but then are empty when selected

Only watched, no sets show. Sets are just missing in this view completely.

All, all sets show.

 

In the Sets node, all of them show no matter what. Changing views only changes what's inside each set.

This is due to the fact Kodi is applying another level of filtering on top of the items that are returned from Emby at a UI level.

 

When you see a Collection/BoxSet in your movies list the items in the Collection/BoxSet are not retrieved yet, so if you apply local Kodi filtering then once the Collection/BoxSet is removed the items in the Collection/BoxSet which were never returned are just gone as they where never there.

 

I thought a Collection/BoxSet was marked watched so it should still show up in a local filter for watched items.

Oh that kinda sucks then. I noticed it only because I was searching for movies I had watched & this made it really hard to find them when in watched only view, if they're part of a collection, they're just not shown at all. I've ignored them all showing in the unwatched view but it's aggravating to have to check each one to see if it's actually something new in the set or not.  Bleh! Still wouldn't go back to a database tho. :-p

Yes it can be confusing, I am not sure of any way to make this better, if you think of somethign let me know.

 

EmbyCon has a good search feature you can use.

Doesn't do any good if ya can't remember the name of a movie. lol

 

I need to find a way to toggle showing sets, seems the only thing I can think of. I noticed the skin Embuary somehow filters out the sets & only shows each movie. Haven't found a way to do that in the Titan Mod skin tho. :-/ It would be a work around.

 

As a side note.. I have F5 set to reload skin so I can refresh any view like a web page for instant up to the second views, for people asking about how to refresh a view or list. It's crazy useful! "<f5>ReloadSkin()</f5>" in keyboard.xml

You should be able to turn off movie grouping into collections in the EmbyCon add-on settings.
However there is a gotcha here, this changes the links created in the add-on main node list, but if you have already created a link in the skin from that list then the link will not be updated.

THANKS! Forgot about that setting. That's at least a work around.

Release : 1.7.20

I have added an option for this to the events settings under screen saver in EmbyCons settings.

I noticed that this option changes Kodi global option.

I don't think that addon should change any Kodi options without any notification

Which global kodi option are you referring to.

The setting I added is purely an EmbyCon setting, it does not change any Kodi settings.

Installed the modified Estuary skin yesterday and I love it! Finally I'm good with using EmbyCon and get rid of the local Movies and TV-shows db/library in my Rpi/OSMC! No more manual library updating in Kodi, and actors thumbs showing. NICE :))
Btw, tried Embuary, didn't like! Simpler is better, in my opinon ;)
