HOW-TO:Share libraries using MySQL: Wiki Edition
(2013-12-18, 17:52)john_austin Wrote: Ned, thanks. I think the revised step 4 is more clear now. You may want to consider adding "Restart XBMC" after step 3 (adding advancedsettings.xml). Also, that the previous sources/library will be empty, thus requiring you to do the 'add' or "set content".

One thing I'm not clear about is the interaction between the SQL DB and the local (ATV) XBMC library. When new content is added to the NAS and 'update library' is executed on one ATV install of XBMC, the SQL DB must be updated since it is visible to all ATV instances of XBMC. But is the data also stored (and updated) in a local library on each ATV? Can I delete the local DB's on each ATV?

The local library is completely ignored when MySQL is being used. Each XBMC install directly accesses the MySQL server for all information.
