I have what may be a simple question but can't seem to locate the answer in any documentation or FAQ.

Is there a way to setup MP to record only first run episodes of a series with TV engine V2? Does this feature exist in V3? I'm using XMLTV for my EPG feed if that makes any difference.

So far I've been very impressed with MP and just added a tuner card this past week.

Thank you! :)

There isn't, and the reason for this according to the devs is that there aren't enough XMLTV feeds out there that correctly provide first-run details. There's a thread in this forum somewhere on it.

    As this is not a useful "Tips & Tricks" article, I have moved it to General.

    I am still here, thanks for the input, so I have now settled on mp1, I am not afraid of a lot of tweaking. Good news on tuners is I can run side by side with my WMC setup, as my tuners are using DVBlink to combine channels for WMC, so WMC is using 8 virtual tuners from DVBlink while MP is using the tuners directly. Of course they are...

    That’s what Lehmden said. Watched flags get migrated when updating to 2.2. Also a new plugin is almost finished to backup watched flags and restore later.

    Check out the tvwishlist plugin, that should do what you want. More powerful than tivos tvwishlist, I think it's being developed for mp2.
