    In TV-Recordings i have a Folder 'Ein Fall für zwei' with many Episode in it. I wish to delete all Episode. So i have to delete every single Episode. It is not possible to delete the Folder 'Ein Fall für zwei'

    Thank you, that's what I figured. I am not sure if it is actually a folder but rather a grouping for display purposes. If you verify on your share I believe that you won't see a sub-folder but just the individual single episode files.

    Anyway, grouping or folder, you would like to be given the possibility to delete from the "folder's" context menu. Certainly a nice add-on to have for users who don't copy/cut recordings and move the to the MP2 series part. I have to pass this on to our developers if this can be added in the future.

    Hi.
    Seen from outside MP2 It is a folder inside the folder you are storing your recordings. And you can delete the folder in Explorer or similar. On next start the database is cleaned and the no longer existing recordings are removed from DB.

    Yes, it is. Something that is available in Kodi already and is a nice feature there. But opposite to Kodi we could make it even better if we're removing the (then empty) folder from disk too. Kodi only removes the recordings videos so they are no longer shown in GUI...

    Not necessarily. On my system all episodes are stored in the recordings folder without additional subfolder structures. It depends how you configure this in the TV Server config. That said, the grouping view is still happening in the MP2 view.
