Sure, but the frontend that are already running don't. I just turn off the 
Screen and the frontend just stays at the last watched episode until I 
continue. And without exiting the videolibrary, this frontend doesn't notice 
any changes. Same apllies to watched-state which isn't a problem for me, as I 
use different rooms for different series (vintage cartoons while ironing and 
recent series in the living room).

I mostly scan for changes in my office, as it's easier to fix wrong metadata and 
images with keyboard and mouse, but the frontend in the livingroom just 
doesn't notice this.

MfG usw.
