hi hot_ham_water, hi folks,
I've got a workaround for our problem:
As described in issue 737 (http://code.google.com/p/ps3mediaserver ... ail?id=737
) I also suppose
the rub in scanning processes.
I observed, that scanning in the Folders Sharing Tab does not analyze the directories.
It starts for the whole directory (not just one file) on demand of my devices (Samsung UE40C8790 -AllShare, Sony Bravia EX) and stops with
loading timeout of the device.
I tried several times ... and on every attempt loading timeout takes a little longer.
Probably the scan-results are stored in the Database and further scans are skipped.
20 times later, i guess it was 20000, scanning of my 2TB-share-network-folder was complete.
(Take a look at debug.log after every timeout)
That worked for me:
- disable all subtitles, even in transcoding-engines if present
- disable all miniatures
- open your folder at the device until timeout
- repeat 20000 times, until filetree is visible
Side effect: If you scan once all other devices can further use and list immediately.
If you change files in your directories a re-opening will analyze only changed files (and within timeout, if you change moderate).
Good luck! (And sorry for my bad german english - hope you could understand me)
Please let me know if that worked for you also. Thanks!
@developers: Great PMS, but please check occasional.
