    So my NAS died :-( I've lost all my TV recordings... Oh well...

    I replaced it with a USB drive but it won't let me delete the old recordings from the MP interface. How I do this without hacking into MySQL? And if have to do it this way, what table(s) do I need to attack?

    Thanks!

    Sorry to hear that!

    If I recall correctly (currently at work), there should be a "clean up" option in the recordings section menu which enables removal of all recording entries which have been deleted on disk.

    The wiki describes it here:
    Recorded TV

    Thanks! But there were some new recordings on my replacement USB drive that I wanted to keep so I went the hard way and removed the records in the Recordings table in MySQL. Works just fine...

    :confused:
    That should not have stopped you from using the clean up function. As explained in the wiki, the "clean up" => "invalid recordings" option is intended to solve the exact problem you were facing.

    The wording on that popup is very intimidating, implying that all of your recordings will be deleted. I have already suggested that the wording be changed, but the skin authors have to agree. This is the wording that I use on my modified version of the "DefaultWide" skin:
