Help! Onedrive, Ambient Mode, Smartthings sync

(Topic created on: 22-03-2022 07:30 PM)

I'm trying to sync Onedrive with Ambient mode on my Samsung q9fn tv via Smartthings on my Samsung S20+ .


Is there an actual sync button (or indeed sync settings) for the app? because it seems to randomly choose how many photos/albums it is going to sync to the app for me to choose from. (sometimes nothing , sometimes quite a few, but never all of my pictures).


Is there anyway I can set it to only sync a specific folder from Onedrive? That way i don't have to sync 1000's of photos for the sake of putting a few on my tv in ambient mode.


Any help people?


Cheers in advance,


Smeags

No. However at the time I worked out that it was just a matter of it taking forever (and i mean forever) to load the photos onto the Smartthings app, it seemed to work quicker after resetting the phone.
So I created a folder for the photos I wanted to display on the tv which (after several attempts resetting phone and waiting) eventually loaded in and after selecting that folder I now have it working and all I do to change the photos is take them in and out of the folder via Onedrive.

My photos no longer load on the Smartthings app but the folder I selected a while back still works so I dare not change it.

I hope this helps in some way.
