Watched status not syncing across clients

So what Im actually doing is setting the Watched status in WMC when PlayedCount > 0 but also storing the actual integer value in WMC as a Bookmark (essentially a timestamp but can be abused to store any numerical value) which means we can honour/preserve the PlayedCount that XBMC is providing. But yes it also has the "benefit" that if you did use WMC natively for whatever reason, recordings you watched in XBMC should also show up as watched in WMC. Note that I didn't do a whole lot of testing on this as I just quickly put it together on the weekend based on this forum request, so please let me know if it's working for you! You need to update the client to 0.2.98 as well, to enable this feature

btw you're pretty keen eyed to discover there is a new version released when it hasn't been officially announced yet... Would I be correct in assuming the automatic "Check for Updates" function is how you found out? Im dying to know how the check/apply updates stuff is going for people as it was only added in build 1150 so this new build 1154 is the first time it's been used in the wild Smile

Great explanation... thanks! And you're right, I rebooted my server today and happened to open serverwmc where I saw the Update tab turn red. I went there it and it said there was an update available so looks like that feature works (and the update installed and was applied with no issues... worked great....)! One quick question. I see the updated Windows client is out... any thoughts on when the updated RPi client will be out? My clients are mostly RPi's so looking forward to testing that out.
