HOW-TO:Share libraries using MySQL: Wiki Edition
I have this set up on 2 RPi2s and MySQL without issues.

I’m trying to configure an Amazon FireTV but no matter what’s in advancedsettings it’s not working.

I’ve noticed it’s on 192.168.49.X do I’m wondering if anyone has this kind of setup working or because the RPi2s are on 18 and AFTV is only 17.6 maybe it won’t read the DB?

Any tips from anyone getting this to work on FireTV? Do I need to create a NEW db for my AFTV on 17.6?

We can't tell if this is relevant information or not without knowing what IP address the MySQL server is using.

Kodi 17.6 doesn't use the same database versions as Kodi 18 so even if you do get the FireTV working with MySQL you won't be able to share a common database with the RPi2 clients, not until all your clients are using the same version of Kodi.

You could just update the AFTV to V18 and be done....unless it can't run V18.

Thank you! That worked!

Quick question.

Both AFTV are set to scan my source folder. Recently starting to see duplicates.

Should one be importing and scanning and one just pointing to the db as a slave?

I’m guessing having both scan is causing the dupes?

IF you have MySql setup properly any one of the devices you have connecting to it should be capable of updating the dbase. INITIALLY only ONE device should have library sources setup and THAT is the one you use to make the FIRST scan of your media by Kodi library. You can even delete the Kodi .db files AFTER you have it all working as MySql will get the info from then on. Also make sure you are using exactly the same lines for mysql in your advancedsettings.xml file on each device. You should probably have "Show Hidden Files and Directories" and "Allow File Renaming and Deletion" ON in Kodi Media Settings on all the devices. This way, if you want to do it, you can remove the dupes the hard way, one at a time, but I think if you clean Kodi's database it might get rid of the dupes. But before you clean you have to stop the one other device you have that also has media sources setup in it's library and remove the sources from it so it doesn't dupe what you're doing.
