    I have the same issue. I use two devices and sync via trakt, but added shows don't appear on both devices. Would a button that forces a re-sync with trakt fix the issue?

    Hey guys, thanks for the comments.

    I think I need to clarify what I meant. The Cloud Beta seems to work for syncing newly added TV shows. All shows are showing up in trakt and on my second device, so far so good.

    But what I actually want, is a sync of the watched status. Submitting watched episodes ("scrobbling") to trakt works fine, but that status isn't mirrored to the other device.

    It would be acceptable, if there was a master and a slave device, so the sync is in one direction only. A true sync would be much better, of course. At the moment I set the Cloud settings on my main device to prefer the device's data, and on my tablet I set it to prefer the Cloud's data. Unfortunately that's not working for me.

    I think that people is talking about 2 different things. There are 2 separate collections, trakt's and seriesguide's. Trakt doesnt sync the list of series that you have on your seriesguide's collection, it only syncs the ones you have on trakt's. So in order to have all the same lists on all of your devices you should add all of your series to trakt's collection even though you havent seen them yet

    Not quite the same. I have some some shows on my phone that is not on my tablet and vise versa. It drives me crazy because I know I added a show and then I can't find it on my list.

    Hi Derek, now I´m using three different Android Devices (Phone/Tablet/Tv Box), I have like a ton of TV Shows too ;-), with a Trackt account too, with the Cloud Beta setting fixed in SeriesGuide. And since a few updates, the sync works really well.
    I use in all devices the XBMC media center to view and Scrobble episodes, and in the other devices sync are now instantly...
    Maybe you should try it if you don´t do this alredy.

    Regards from the south of Spain.

    This would be my most missed feature. I have a ton (!) of TV shows in my list and the sync via trakt.tv just doesn't work as smooth as I'd like. I'm using the backup/restore feature together with FolderSync via Dropbox at the moment to sync from Phone to Tablet, but that's also not really convenient. A built-in sync feature would be fantastic.

    I would also like to be able to sync without having to create an account on a website (mostly for privacy reasons).

    The trakt system simply doesn't work. It used to be very unreliable, and now I can't download the watched lists anymore, the option is gone.

    I'm signed in on 2 devices but I can't get a clean sync between both, only some shows update properly even after manually syncing

    Can´t find the third-party service in this path :-(... Into settings don´t showing a label named "services" (??)

    It would be great if the syncing could be done via a Google account or Google drive! I really love the app but I hate the idea of signing up to every little extra service. Keep it as simple, intuitive and as beautiful as possible
