Another issue :
watchdog addon seems to be in conflict with OpenElec Settings.
When Watchdog is activated, Openelec settings are slow, unresponsive, etc...
once Watchdog is deactivated, OE settings behaviour come back to normal.
Any Ideas?
Thanks for your help

Yes. http://trac.kodi.tv/ticket/14212. Should hopefully be fixed before Isengard is released

I think most if the scripts can be ran by cmd line. However I don't know the cmd, it may be KODI.runscript(name.of.script). This is a guess and based on how artwork downloader is ran by cmd line. Sorry in advanced if it's misinformation.

Hi everyone,
I'm trying to use Watchdog (default setting) with Bello skin in Kodi 14.2 “Helix and also SPMC.
Problem: after installing Watchdog every task I'm running in Kodi is taking ages to be completed.
Ex. Artwork Download, Customize skin settings, update library, etc. etc.
Anyone else with the same problem?
I thought that maybe Watchdog doesn't get along with particular skins and/or add-on?
Any help is welcome.. thansk

Yes, probably the same kodi issue as mentioned above. Please try Isengard Beta 1 or Nightly. It should be fixed.

Is there a way to increase the number of video sources from 5?
I used auto detect, but there's one source that I want to scrape externally first, before it's added to my library. I would set Watchdog to ignore that path, but that's not an option.

Kodi Nightlies
Computer: Sony VGN-NS110E
OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate Build 7601
CPU: Intel® Core™2 Duo CPU T7250 @ 2.00GHz
HDD: Hitachi HTS543216L9SA00 (152,627 MBytes (160 GB))
Sharing Media: SMB (HDD: SAMSUNG HD080HJ/P (76.3 GB))

All,

i changed from XBMC library updater to Watchdog and it appears to me as if this addon consumes less resources for the scanning and update part.

Currently I have configured my NAS with WOL to be started when Kodi enters the directories which is very good and useful for me - in the current setup watchdog starts up when i start kodi and turns on my nas. is there any possibility to start watchdog without direct updating the mediasources?

thank!

I have set up watchdog, but running into an issue I can't figure out. It adds new shows and movies alright, but when higher quality versions of a show are added and the lower is removed from disk, it adds the new version to the Kodi database without removing the old one. Watchdog is set to clean up the individual item, not a full clean (as that would run like 20 minutes, and I don't want that). Also worth noting perhaps is that I shut down Kodi after use, so typically the files get deleted/added while Kodi is not running. Watchdog is set to scan for changes at start because of this.
