I'm still unclear whether this can manipulate kodi database directly?
I need a tool that can manipulate kodi database directly, updating via kodi /JSON has 2 issues for me :
- Kodi needs to be open on server, my diskless setup does not allow this, long story short opening kodi will lock the database and diskless client wont be able to access it..
- I frequently get "unable to connect to server" due to thetvdb's unreliable uptime... (is there no known way to "auto-yes" the message?)
For now i'm using a dirty workaroung by symlink the userdata and syncronizing it using syncovery.. but it still locks up if a client boots then the server updates kodi..
Currently Media companion can update Movies only to Kodi database via JSON. But, this is slow. It was added some time ago, and I do not know how the code works to improve it, or to add TV to the update.
Have you looked at texturecache.py and it's other python script, mklocal.py
They may be of help, I'm not sure though.
