Incorrect info re shared file folders

Still cannot access downloaded videos filed in my new laptop using Serviio as the media player. I can see that Serviio lists 19 video files in my laptop that should be found under C:\users\briwl\downloads. My Sony TV media player screen displays 3 file names as well as SAMPLE but does not show the one required to show the 19 videos on file . These old file destinations were generated when I was using another laptop. and should not be displayed now. How can I get rid of them on the media player program so that I do not get message that they are EMPTY ? I have no problem entering the current user route on the shared folders( and deleted the 3 unwanted routes ) table but the correct one does not get displayed on the TV media player screen.

Re: Incorrect info re shared file folders

On rare occasions the database gets something messed up, and can display inaccurate information like this. Honestly, the easiest thing to do is uninstall Serviio, reboot the computer, make sure the folder C:\Program Files\Serviio is completely gone, then reinstall and set up from scratch. Depending on the size of your library, it shouldn't take too long to get everything back up and running.
