Solved: Library (media server) not shown completely
(08-10-2020, 11:43 AM)Tim Curtis Wrote: The Library update runs two processes in parallel. The first is the MPD database update routine which scans the music collection for song files and builds a tag index. The second is the thumb nail generator (thmcache) which scans the music collection album directories for images embedded in the song files or for image files (folder.jpg, cover.jpg, etc).

The Moode log entries don't explicitly show the MPD database update statistics, only those from "thmcache" which refer to the number of album directories scanned for images. For example:

20200810 072545 worker: Job update_library
20200810 072545 thmcache: Start
20200810 072545 thmcache: Scanning: NAS, SDCARD, UPNP
20200810 072555 thmcache: Done: 352 album dirs processed
20200810 072609 worker: Job update_library done

To find out what MPD database update has done its necessary to look at the MPD log.

cat /var/log/mpd/log

To get a clean, first run log do the following.

1. Menu, Configure, System
2. CLEAR System logs
3. Menu, Update library

After Library update completes (no spinner)

4. cat /var/log/mpd/log

Look for evidence that all your songs were indexed. There will be a log entry for each song file. If not all of them were successfully indexed then look for errors.

NOTE that moOde's Library is based on tags in the song files. If the tags are missing or incorrect then the Library will not be correct.

Many thanks for the quick reply.
Unfortunately the mpd log shows no strange entries. The line before last it states an error (failed to open song xy) but the very last line
it says song xy added. Then, the log just ends.

I tried to attach the HDD directly via USB and all files have been imported. So, no TAG issue but most likely it's on my side.... Sad 
What keeps being strange is the fact that the first artists in alphabetical order (A-D) are imported - not just arbitrary songs/artists.
Looks like some kind of timeout/interrupt occurs...

Errors I receive from time to time is "transport endpopint not connected". Then, no song works anymore and I have to restart.
After that the (few) imported songs work as expected.

Any further suggestions? I'll continue trying and post my findings (if there are any).
Have a nice day!
