Emby for Kodi not updating content

Recommended Posts

Hi,

first an overall picture of my setup

pc#1, Emby server,

pc#2, htpc running Emby for Kodi: no issues

pc#3, pc running Emby for Kodi, has not updated new content since July 17

 

When I fire up Kodi, I get the Emby user greeting,  but I don't see the library update animation.

Is there anything you suggest I try ?

 

EDIT: Having encountered this issue already, I looked up previous fix and toggled playback mode from Add-On to Native, then back to add on.

This triggered a library sync of the "whole kind". This will take a while, and in the end, It'll very likely update libraries to speed.

 

The real test will be tomorrow morning after a crop of new tv episodes. I'll report back then if library updates are back for good.

Same with me a few days ago.
Emby server shows the logged in Kodi user,
but there are no databases in Kodi under the green emby button.

If I start a film in Kodi it will be shown under "active devices".
is displayed correctly.

Since nothing happens here, I have deactivated the use of the Emby Companion and re-read the database.

So for now it runs...

Does this only happen with tv episodes?

There was no media coverage.
The menu under the green emby button started at
"Manage Databases", all items before that were not displayed.

The local database still had the latest version and you could also start from it and this was also displayed on the emby server.
The connection to the server works but somehow the media is missing.
Under "Update databases" he displayed them but nothing happened, there was also no popup message

Unfortunately only now seen...

In the meantime I could activate it again and it runs 🙂

Thanks!

It happens once in a while, as recently as last week, but at least in my case, I discovered that if I leave Kodi opened long enough (as in multi hours), it eventually processes update.
