Search was showing up yesterday today I added a tv folder and did a full refresh Meta scan on all my folders. now google assistant (shield) search only shows the tv programs.

Ive delete the cache, deleted the app, deleted the sever even reset my shield and the search is not working I did not know if there is a file that google assistant searches for for titles. 

after I tried all that only the tv shows are showing up in search. Im was trying the delete my sever on my Nas but I don't think all the files get deleted because when I reinstalled it all my setting and folders where there.

not sure what else to try

Hi.  You are talking about searching OUTSIDE of our app, correct?

 

If you use the search button inside the app, what happens?

Searching  in the app works. When I use google shield outside it does not work of most titles. ‘The available for Emby” on shows on a few titles it was working but after a refresh meta it stoped working

If searching within the app is still returning what you expect, I don't think your metadata refresh is related.

 

Google decides what and how to show the results of their Google Assistant search.  Sometimes it will take you straight to a single item and sometimes it will give you a list of items from different apps.  Exactly what you search for has an effect on this (e.g. how "broad" the search term is).

 

Can you give us some specific examples?

I don't mind deleting my sever and app but that did not work so I want to try and delete my sever and app without any files being left behind which is hard as I use a NAS and Shield and don't have core access to delete left over files. or a way to force google to see all my movies on the shield search

What user is logged into the emby app? Do they have access to the titles you are trying to search for?

I wonder if that's just a difficult example due to the v in the middle. Does this only happen with tricky titles like that?

Okay, so maybe this is related to your metadata refresh...  Do your movies all still have IMDb IDs?

I clicked on about 15 different movie that don't work and went to edit Metadata and the IMDb Ids where under External Ids and they where there for each movie

 

I also looked in the metadata manger too

Okay, it turns out that Google uses the name of the item and the production year to match them up.  Are the names the proper name of the movie (in English, I assume) and are their production years correct?
