Hello again

I’be built another installation using the 2.50 Buster image on my Pi 3 and I’m pleased to say that, using the method described above, I was able to restore all of my LMS settings from my original Jessie installation. For me the key was to completely delete the cache folder from the settings tar file produced my M2P. This reduced the file size from 246meg to about 250kb. After that I just did a complete rescan of the media directories. I should also add that I stopped LMS whilst carrying out the restore procedure. This is a good result for me 🙂

One further question, now that I have a working Buster image on my Pi 3, can I just put this SD card into my Pi 4 when it arrives. Does it matter that it has been configured on a Pi 3 or will I have to start again?

Thanks
Ashley
