Downloading books from Calibre Server
#1  mdclanahan 12-05-2019, 11:28 AM
I have Marvin connected to Calibre content server/OPDS, and I see that I can "Enter multi-download mode," which lets me manually select multiple books to download. However, that is still going to take forever with a 4600 book library.

Within my library of books already in Marvin, I found a way to select all; however, that option appears to be missing when download books via OPDS. Is there a quicker way to download all books from my Calibre server without having to select each one? Or even if there were a way to hide books on the Calibre content server that are already on the device, that would help immensely.

Sorry, no there isn't. If you want to transfer that many books then you should just connect with a wired iTunes *shudder*.

The whole purpose of an OPDS is that you don't HAVE to download all those books to your device - you simply download the few that you want/need as you need them. If you allow access to your OPDS server through the internet, then you can download any book(s), at any time, from anywhere.

In addition, you can use your Calibre content server/OPDS the way it was intended - as a library manager. You can view your entire library via a web browser - such as that on your phone/tablet - download selected books to your device for reading, or read directly in the browser.
