So how do we initiate a deep scan via the web interface?

Thanks!

I also found that option-click from my Mac on the PMS web interface update button does a deep scan (the same as the Mac version), and shift-click seems to do a full metadata refresh on the section.

thanks for this. i have been searching but haven't found any place where http API calls like this are documented. where did you learn this command?

is there an equivalent for a standard (not "deep") update that would be the equivalent of just clicking the update button in the web interface? i want to make a little shell script on the linux box that will update the library (via curl) when a torrent finishes downloading.

maybe you just leave off the "?force=1" part?

thanks!

The info is about scattered at the moment. But this is how you should do it:

force=1 corresponds to the forced refresh (shift + click)

deep=1 corresponds to non-turbo deep scan (option + click)

deep=0 corresponds to Turbo scan (or just leave it off)

Thanks Jedi & Atrus - I hadn't seen the force & deep options before.

pjv - that is what I do - a simple curl to the refresh URL to tell it to scan after a download. Works great with Sickbeard.

I'm sorry but I'm a complete dunce with this stuff!

I love Plex and I'm mad about movies but have no idea with technical stuff!

How do I do a deep refresh? The above command you say? But how does that relate to my collection? How do I use it?

For note: I'm using PMS on Windows Win 7 - running on FireFox.

It's destination is ATV2

thanks
Thank you to all who have built Plex up to what it is... it has changed my movie viewing experience!

Not sure if you have or have not understood what this thread is all about. So I hope I am not stepping on your toes here. But this thread is about PMS on a Linux machine. BUT, the web interface is the same, and you should not be using anything else than the web interface to run your deep scans if you are on windows or if you do not feel at home using text-based input channels (like the Terminal for Mac for example). Simply go into the web interface, and alt-click the refresh button (I think the ALT key correspons to the Option key on the Mac).

Wanted to thank you for this, I was able to use this info to throw in my post processing bat file to keep my library up to date when media center master grabbed a new movie or tv show without having plex spin up my unraid server for random scans
