Title: Filename View in Orbiter
Post by: maverick0815 on December 19, 2016, 09:54:10 pm
Hello Guys, my Core crashed today and I rebooted it. So far so good, but now I have a weird phenomenon. All the files are there and they play, if I select them via Title. However if I want to list via Filename, the list is completely empty.
My core is running on 14.04. and is up to date.
Any idea where I should look?`

Cheers
Mario

Filename view often won't be populated until UpdateMedia has completely scanned your media.  Once it has done its' thing the files will show.

Hmm..there must be something else. I verified that all my media is tagged and supposedly entered in the database. I let the systems sit there, but until now Fileview remains empty.

Is it really empty, or just a page full of nothing, ie. when you click on the left hand side on one of the characters, does that show you something?

ok. Very strange. See if the UpdateMedia.log shows anything worth while.

I found this in updatemedia.log:

Quote

See if you can stop and start the updatemediadaemon manually, ie.
Code: [Select]
/usr/pluto/bin/UpdateMediaDaemonControl -disable
/usr/pluto/bin/UpdateMediaDaemonControl -enable

well, I can manually start and stop the updatemediadaemon. I checked the log and the connection error still occurs.
The log also shows me a lot of double attributes. I don't think that is right.
Also in Orbiter, when I select a TV-Show, though they are all tagged via autotagger, the listing there is not consistent. Lets say there are 8 Seasons of a TV-Show. Three seasons appear in a common container, the others are listed separately and the episodes are mostly out of order there. So its quite a challenges to figure out, how to find the next one to watch.
All of this happened since I had this crash. So I was thinking if its either possible to drop and rebuild the database for my media, or if I will just scrap this install and make a new one.

You can certainly drop the pluto_media database, and start it over. I guess, I would do
Code: [Select]
sudo mysql -e "DROP DATABASE pluto_media"
apt-get install --reinstall pluto-media-database

thanks, I will give this a try and report back...perhaps even within this year :-)

ok, I reinstalled the database. However I got an error at the end:
Quote
Error 1146 (42S02) at line 1: Table 'pluto_main.Attribute' doesn't exist
Is this something to be concerned about?`
Anyway, I will see, what will happen now.
Thanks so far!

it seems redoing the database did the trick, fileview is available again

You can use tooltips:

Settings > view > file/folder list > general > show files and folders tooltip

Or show the name in status bar.
