Wonderfull job i am certain Enforcer !

I have a question; I am planning to have a master media server in the house and media servers in two vehicles (possibly three, if I can ever get assistance in getting my third truck finished). What is the best way to assure that all vehicles have the same media available to them and also have the media available to home systems? I've read through this thread and haven't quite figured out if the answer is here or not.
I have a NAS server at home which has all my media on it.
What I currently do is have a folder which shared called playlists and that contains a selection from all my media files which I change from time to time.
Using this plugin with RR in my car, my Music folder on the CarPC is automatically synced up with that folder when I park my car in my drive (via wireless connection).
The PSU is set to hold the PC on for 10 minutes after I switch off the ignition.
If there is a lot difference between my car and the folder it will take a few days or more to catch up. This is limited by the speed of transfer of the wireless.
I could of course do all my media rather than just a selection.
I also have the plugin running on my laptop and it does the same on that, but usually a lot quicker because it gets a stronger signal.
Only thing to note is it won't do files greater than 2GB, but then if you are copying that size of files you will be sitting in the car with the engine running for ages.
IOW, I would say, yes it can do what you want.
So it's just a matter of putting the files on the main media server in the house and pointing the individual vehicle media servers at the shared folder and having them sync separately; sounds fair enough. I've started the main media server build, though I've run into a small snag with the drive I wanted to use on that motherboard; I do know how to fix it, since I've been building computers for about 17 years now.
I find it's better to map a drive to the shared folder on the clients.
Navigate in the plugin to select the source path (ie that mapped drive) and then do the same for the destination.
Select what triggers you want the plugin to attempt a sync on (I think default is all)
Once you have done that on one client you can upload any syncs you have created (it will sit in an seperate encrypted file on my website) and then you can download those syncs to the other clients to save your recreating them all again.
