Media Library Compiling every time I switch on

As per thread title.

I’m on firmware 2.01.86 and haven’t updated for a while, as the last time new firmware popped up everyone was having trouble with it, but mine was working fine.

Anyway, it WAS working fine, but for the past few weeks, whenever I switch it on, I get the ‘Compiling media library…’ bar at the top…forever!

Don’t want to turn the media library off, as it’s how I organise my videos.

All media is on Western Digital My Book Lives (and similar - all WD).

Anyone any ideas?

Hi there,

Do you have all your media files on NAS devices or on a directly connected drive? What could be happening is that when you turn of the unit it is not going to stand by mode.

All media is on NAS devices.

It’s sometimes taking about 15 minutes or so to build the library when I switch on.

I might be wrong, but I think that every time I add a new piece of media it re-scans the whole library.

to be clear - no new media added, it compiles for around a minute. Any new media added, it compiles for around 15 minutes.

That’s what appears to be happening, anyway.
