How often does Emby write data to .nfo files?  More specifically, after a file is uploaded, provided that it is a valid TV episode or Movie file, when does an .nfo metadata file for the item get created?


Nevermind, I found that my nfs share mounted read-only, so the data is not getting saved.  The server is trying to create the .nfo file at scan time, but can't save it.  Please disregard.

One should be created when the item is imported into Emby.  Assuming Emby has write access to the folder.  And the option is enabled on the library.
