how can I pull in multiple folders and show their content in 'Recorded TV'? I offload the recorded content nightly to a secondary location but I still want them to be avail to 'Recorded TV'. Thanks!

    notdesigned for that. use my tv series plugin.
    or use the tv management plugin to move recordings automatically.
    you can manually import moved recordings in tvserver config.
    or you can create sym links.

    I am using my tv series and it works well but some one-off recordings don't appear there. Am I missing a configuration setting?

    that's what I was thinking but I think this is expected it. Not all shows I recorded will have corresponding season and episode information. Does that mean I can't bring them in to my tv series?

    I do precisely this with my old recordings. I set the recording folder of the tuner with the lowest priority (and therefore least likely to be used) to an 'archive' folder so that its contents appear in Recorded TV.

    Ingenious idea, so long as you have lots of tuners:)

    Any way to make a fake tuner and then disable it to fool the old MP?

VLC does read the ts files but the TV's remote does not allow to control basic VLC functions like FF or FR or pause etc... Tried 1-2 other apps, even...

    Well, currently the plugin shows the sun/moon times in user's local time. As you said, It would require to add time zone parameter to the profile. I'll try to add this option in the next version. PS: please use official thread

    MP1 MP2 [solved] Purge old recordings DE
    Today my PVR disk died, taking with it a load of old recorded TV programmes. I swapped in a spare drive but I see that MP2 still thinks the old recordings exist. I expected the metadata for the recordings to be in same folder as the PVR but apparently not. How do I make MP2 forget about these old recordings? Needless to say, I tried...
