I am planning to run both a production & a test Emby server pointing to the same source for their libraries. However, I want only the production to update the nfo metadata in the respective media folders and the test server to only read them since I don't want to make all the changes twice.
I did find this topic while searching: https://emby.media/c...-media-library/ but its a little old and I just wanted to confirm the changes to be done on the test server to prevent any writes and only read the nfo files.
* Disable the NFO option in the Metadata Savers section
* Disable the "Save artwork into media folders" option
However, I believe this will still download the metadata but store it in the DB instead? Is there any way to avoid that too and just read the NFO and the already downloaded artwork, posters etc. (already downloaded by the production folder alongside the media) for any metadata?
