HOW-TO:Share libraries using MySQL: Wiki Edition
Try Kodi 18 as you might find the problem is fixed now that File Item caching is mostly broken in Estuary.

I don't have any solution that will correctly invalidate the cache, I suspect that might require a chunk of work for someone (a sledgehammer solution might be to invalidate all File Item caches whenever any database update occurs).

Disabling the File Item cache entirely might be a faster solution as not only does the File Item cache have the problem you noted, but also in Kodi 18 the caches are created/written, but never loaded/read (as the wrong name is used).

The following patch should disable the File Item cache in Kodi 18:
Texture Cache Maintenance Utility: Preload your texture cache for optimal UI performance. Remotely manage media libraries. Purge unused artwork to free up space. Find missing media. Configurable QA check to highlight metadata issues. Aid in diagnosis of library and cache related problems.
