Hi XBMC Forums,

I finally got my setup running the way I want it to but I've got one more thing that needs fixing so here goes:

I've created two smart playlists, one for movies and one for tv shows, that 's using the play count is less than 1 rule to quickly find unwatched media. The playlists works fine when I manually use "Mark as watched" but when playing the files through our tv's Mediaserver function (UPnP) the files don't get a higher play count than 1 and therefore is not removed from the playlists.

Is there anyway to fix this? Or does anyone have a better soloution than playlists to filter media by Unwatched that works with UPnP? Oh, by the way, I've got all three options enabled in Settings -> Services -> UPnP.

Thanks for reading!

I don't believe this is currently possible. I think playcount is updated only in nightly builds (wiki) via UPnP when both server and client are XBMC, but not with smart TVs or other UPnP devices.

Full disclosure: I work for WeTek. However, this is my personal account, and my words and opinion are my own.

You can make easy links to the Kodi Wiki Manual using double brackets around common Kodi words: [[debug log]] = debug log (wiki), [[Video library]] = Video library (wiki), [[SMB]] = SMB (wiki) , [[userdata]] = userdata (wiki), etc
