Full Version: Kodi/LibreElec complains about missing directories not being there

Hello  Blush

What I currently have
  1. I have 3 HTPC's running LibreElec 9.2 = Kodi 18.2, plus one Kodi headless (18.4) running in Docker on my Synology in DSM 6.2.
  2. My media is stored on a Synology.
  3. The database is in the Synology package MariaDB5 (setup long time ago, forgot how I did it, because I wanted "one single source of the truth and be able to continue in my bedroom where I left of in my sports room).
  4. I use TinyMediaManager to "prepare" my newly added videos with the right NFO before I manually run an "Update Library" in LibreElec/Kodi.

Problem
  1. During library updates, LE/Kodi complains about directories that were once there but have been deleted a long time ago.
  2. I performed a 'Clean Library' multiple times from my HTPC's (the Docker-Kodi can't do a library clean).
  3. Yet, Kodi keeps on thinking these directories should be indexed.
It concerns this, in the log:

How could I solve this?

Thank you,

Bye,

Iirc most likely a MySQL/MariaDB error in kodi where Kodi is not deleting everything from the database. So those are leftovers. Try to look at the db and try to remove those entries manually (if they still exist)

Thank you for your reply Angel

I don't know how to delete records from the DB. I know I can go into MyVideos116 in MariaDB and browse through TV-shows there, but isn't it supposed to be a relational database? So I shouldn't be deleting stuff in TV-shows in only, but also in other tables? And then I'm afraid I damage the database integrity.

If you are not comfortable enough with SQL queries, it's best not to start delete database records that you *think* are okay to remove.
Phantom tv show entries in the database are possible because of an incomplete garbage collection routine inside Kodi. Those entries are harmless by themselves.

One way of cleaning up is to do a full video library export, remove/rename the current video database, reinstate the video source(s), and rescrape your video collection. (Don't forget about watched statuses and resume points)
It's not the most elegant solution, but it works.
