I just purchased a couple Logitech Revue devices and loaded the Logitech Media Server software onto my media server (a Windows XP machine.)
The server runs DVR software that uses it's own conventions for storage, including a folder/subfolder system for organizing videos (for example "TV Shows/Gilligan's Island")
Everything is up and running but I'm finding....
1) With MUSIC I just set the watched folder to the top level directory ("My Music") and when the system scans it looks into the subfolder structure with no problem, however with VIDEO if I just tell it to look at "TV Shows" it doesn't seem to scan into the subfolder structure, all it catches are playable formats in the main directory.
2) I can't find a way to schedule rescans. It scans when I add a folder or when I click "rescan" in the Advanced settings, but it never seems to scan on it's own. All media is put on the server by other programs (or manually) so the media server itself is never involved in actively putting new media there. Is there some setting I'm missing that would tell it to "rescan everything every day at 2am" or something like that, or even auto-detect when new files are added and rescan then? If not, perhaps there's a command line parameter list I can use to build a batch file to do this via Task Scheduler? I don't care about resources, the current rescan process does not seem to use enough cycles to interfere with anything else that's going on on the machine.
Any clues, anyone?
