Been running great for a good while now but the time has come to add a client to my sons bedroom (he is 5).

Installed client sets restrictions, Tv channels limited correctly, blocked media folders not showing fine except for one issue.

No matter what I do all TV recordings are showing even if I block the recorded TV folder as part of the profile.

All servers/clients running on 2.2.3.

So in all cases I have split media folders, so Music/video/pictures Adult/Child, server (front room) points to both adult/child folders while my sons client only shows child folders and only has Childrens TV channels.

So I have setup a separate Child TV recordings folder and moved some across (looking to automate later) and told the client to only show the child folder but all TV recording come through anyway.

Is there a way to do/fix this, am I missing something?

Thank you in advance.

Further information, I have just tried blocking all media on my sons profile and all media (movies,music,videos) is gone expect for recorded TV which is still there, surely this isn't correct behaviour? why have option to limit media but then be exposed to a full range of TV recordings.

    The issue is already fixed by @henso and tested. It will be part of the next release (Version 2.3), which will be published shortly.
    Thanks for submitting the problem and the patience.

    Deny the network access to that folder in windows network configuration for that user.

    P.S. - Strangely, the TV Server my single seat setup (1.27 on a modest machine running Windows 10 Pro x64) is working from my office machine MP client. Same exact network, firewall, Defender settings. It's a slightly older version of Win 10 though - I haven't updated to 20Hx on it yet. Maybe I shouldn't (or maybe I should image it...

    Is this a correct connection? The name from the Server PC is "MediaPortal-Server" and from the Client PC is "Wohnzimmer-Client". And this is a screenshot from the ServiceMonitor from the Server. This looks very confused to me. I thought the the System always must be "MediaPortal-Server". It always takes some time until the...

    "TV Server" can produce logs with various levels of detail. The level that has the most detail is DEBUG level, but this is not the default. So the first thing that you need to do is start "TV Server Config" and change the log level to DEBUG; see this page in the Wiki. Actually, I run my HTPC with the log level set to DEBUG all of the...

    Hi Issue is now resolved after testing. I found solution in another thread, there was the recommondation to change recording path to UNC instead of matching server drive directly with drive ID (windows style) Great I am happy now, BR Michael
