[RELEASE] Texture Cache Maintenance utility

They don't appear on the main UI(Confluence)screen. Through the menu Videos, Files it will see and play them as files. But it is clear the source 'types' are not set (Movies, TV Shows etc.).

This sounds like a MySQL issue - a new client only needs the advancedsettings.xml (and sources.xml to avoid certain "security" issues but this file isn't always vital). If you're using smb:// you may also need passwords.xml. With those files in place you should have access to your movies and TV shows without any further changes.

I'd suggest uploading a complete debug log (wiki) from the troublesome client.

Or do I have to let the new RPi scan them in again? And if it does scan, is this updating the MySQL database as well as it's local one?

Running a scan on the RPi would only be creating a local (SQLite) database and is definitely not what you want to do. There is a problem with the MySQL setup, and the errors/evidence will be found in kodi.log. It's most likely an error in advancedsettings.xml, or your MySQL server is refusing connections from the new client.
