Synching of Watched Status

Good Evening.

I have 2 questions, which are kind of wrapped up around the same subject.

I sync TV shows to my surface Pro, from my Plex Server, to watch while away from home (So they become media on that device), the action to sync is made from the surface pro, I don't select the tv show on the server, and then pick the device to send it to.

  1. I have watched them on the Surface Pro, they don't remain Watched. As soon as I exit and come back in they are unwatched again.

  2. However, when I get home, I remark them as Watched, and connect to the network. When does the client match them as watched on the Plex Server I synched them from?

Or am I missing some important step out? Or does it not just work.

Double check, but I don't think it is a sync issue. The app does an AWFUL job of manually marking something watched when you are done. If I had to bet, the item was never marked watched to begin with. Again, you may have already checked this and it was actually correctly marked watched., Just a shot in the dark.

I have marked it as watched myself, for testing purposes. Next time I go into the app, it is marked as unwatched.

After you mark it watched, back out of the series, come back in and see if it is still marked watched. I have marked an episode personally myself and come back later and it is marked unwatched. This app is a mess and they claim they are working on it, but nothing has been done in ages. Personally, I think the app should be scrapped and started over from scratch. I always here people blame the OS, but apps such as Netflix and Hulu look amazing and run great. This app is a technical mess, while looking and acting about as amateurish as it gets. Sad.
