Help! Onedrive, Ambient Mode, Smartthings sync

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

hhhmmm Chocolate teapot springs to mind!

I'm guessing this is another problem that samsung aren't even going to address let alone fix.

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.

hi there. can you please clarify exactly how/where you created this folder for pics you wanted to display on the tv?   the smartthings app is only showing all 30,000+ photos connected to my one drive. i'd love to create a subfolder only for those photos i want to show on the tv.  how and where do i do this? thanks in advance for any hep you can offer.  -alan

I created a folder within the DCIM folder in the samsung gallery folder on onedrive then told smartthings to use that folder.

I can now just switch which photos I want in and out of that folder. 👍
