Library auto update - Linux+NAS



I am now running PMS on a Linux PC connected to NAS using SMB. All is fine except Plex does not detect new media automatically. No problem if I do a manual scan but would prefer to have it detect changes and do so without any intervention from me. Any ideas?


I don't think the method used to detect changes to your media drives works across a network.


The kernel's iNotify service does not work across networks. It only applies to directly mounted devices.


Well that would explain it then :). Guess I fell asleep at the wheel!
