Hi all, I could use some help. I am using mariadb on a Sinology 1511+. I have it all running fine with one issue,

I have 2 fresh kodi installs on 2 different units, so after I setup my DB I add my sources to install #1 and let it populate the DB using loacl information. Everything goes fine and it finds all 3000 of my movies.
So I go to instal #2 and add my advanced setting and sources. My sources connect via NFS. Everything works fine except when I do a library update and it starts adding all my movies over again as duplicates. Please if anyone has any ideas!

Do you use the same paths on both machine

OpenElec 5.0.1 | Kodi Helix | Aeon MQ5 | MONEUAL 320B | Intel® Core™ i5 CPU 661 | Zotac GeForce GT 730 1GB GDDR5
Onkyo TX-SR875 | Teufel System 5 THX Cinema 5.1
HP Microserver N40L WHS 2011 10TB

a) You don't need to run an update on #2, but doing so obviously shouldn't create duplicates (it shouldn't have added anything)

b) If a scan creates duplicates, it's because the paths used by the second scan are different to the first. Look at both paths for a single movie that has been duplicated and spot the difference.

So when is the MySQL options going to be in Kodi itself? Or has someone already done an addon for it?

I would really like to figure out profiles. I want a kids profile to seperate all the Ice Princess type stuff from my regular database in mysql. I tried a profile with its own advancedsettings file that was just a blank file other than



Worked fine. So I figured now I'll create a database in mysql named "kids_video" . Then added the needed mysql lines to advancedsettings file mentioned above in kids profile. Ran a library update and ended up seeing the movies in my regular library too. Also mysql created "kids_video90". I did include the <name> in advancedsettings. I guess kodi added the 90 in mysql. So I dumped the profile and cleared the database and gave up. All is back to normal with just the master profile and me with a sad face ?

I would also like figure this out. I would like to have 6 profiles for 6 different users on 10-15 devices, so everyone can keep track of their watched movies.

I am using unRAID as my server and KODI-Headless docker from sparklyballs.
Default profile is working, but I need to set up 5 more.

Is this even possible? So that I will knot, if I shall keep trying or not...
