Plex not importing new media - how can I fix without reinstalling?
So I have a rather bizarre issue that I'm hoping can be resolved without reinstalling Plex on my NVIDIA SHIELD device, because it would take a really long time to get everything imported.
Today I copied the second season of an old TV series, did a refresh, and Plex didn't detect it... which was really odd. It detected the first season fine when I added it last week. The file naming conventions on both are the same, but just to be sure that wasn't the issue, I created a "Home Movies" category and put my MP4s in there. The files still didn't show up.
Now the real kicker is that I overwrote one of the season one MP4s with the season two MP4 - and it played the new file masquerading as the old episode just fine, so I know it's not because the files are unplayable or somesuch.
So then I took one of the TV shows that is currently imported and in my library and copied it to the earlier Home Movies directory I created and did another refresh - nothing!
So it seems like the process that imports my media is no longer working. I tried restarting my SHIELD but am having the same issue. If at all possible I'd like to resolve without reinstalling Plex, as I have a pretty gigantic movie library that would take quite a bit of time to import over again.
