Helloeverbody,

I used birdiesync to sync contacts and Events between my mobile and my laptop (everything fine). But now I want to sync them between my pc and my mobile as well.
On both machines there is the same remote calender (read only). I sync this one way to the mobile. But if i now connect the mobile to the other machine the events transfered from the remote calender to the mobile are transfered to the other machine in the default calendar... So in the end, i've got each event (which is in the remote calender) two times... on each machine and on the mobile...

What can I do about this. Could you implement in your sync that the second machine knows that some of the events are supposed to be synced one way?

Thanks,
macshooter

Hello macshoort,

Actually this problem is described in this FAQ topic.
I agree with you that it would better if it would be possible to identify that the event is already synchronized on the mobile device to avoid synchronizing 2 times the same remote calendar on the 2 PCS. By now, the only workaround I see is to synchronize the remote calendar on one single PC.

Hey,

thanks for the quick reply. Unfortenatly I did not look into the FAQ. Sry for that. But i did use the search! ;)

I've got a workaroud for this problem...
If i link the category to the calender (BS options) - I don't get duplicates. The whole calender is rewriten on each sync, but that does'nt matter so much.

So for all who want to sync there web calender on more than one machine, this might be good to know.

Bye Mac

I prefer to remind that the FAQ is there to encourage everybody to look at it. :)

Note that your workaround only works because you access your calendar "read only". If you'd synchronize "Both ways" instead of "From PC to mobile device", I think you'd get duplicates.
