[RELEASE] Texture Cache Maintenance utility
1) Enable cron in the OpenELEC settings applet.

2) In SSH, enter "crontab -e" and the nano editor will start

3) Add a line as follows:
Code:
0 0 * * * /storage/texturecache.py c

4) Press "CTRL-X", Y, and then RETURN

5) Confirm the cron entry has been saved with "crontab -l" (that's l as in list)

6) Confirm that /sbin/crond is running with "ps aux | grep crond" - if not, you might have to reboot the Pi. Check for crond after rebooting.

With the above completed your cache will now preload at 0 (0-59) minutes past the 0 (0-23) hour on every day of the month (*, 1-31), on every month of the year (*, 1-12), on every day of the week (*, 0-6 [sun-sat]).

Or in other words, it will be run at midnight every night of the year.
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.
