    Hi,

    I searched the forum and the wiki and am confused. I have been using mediaportal 1 for several years. Currently using 1.15.0.

    My recordings go to drive G:\TV. Some recordings are in the base directory and some recordings are in sub-folders named with the channel number and channel name. For example I have many recordings at the G:\TV path but some of the recordings are going into sub-folders like G:\TV\200 AMCHD.

    How do I change my TV server setup to place all recordings in G:\TV?

    Thanks,
    Rob

    Custom paths and file names.
    You will see it Defaults to Movies, that is a pull down so you can also customize Series.

    Next it the format....
    This is a pull down do you can change it to be where you want it stored and with what name and other info.

    Hi

    Assume you have 2 or more tuners?

    If so, in TVServer Config -> Recordings -> Folders. Set path for one tuner, then hit 'Same recording folder for all cards'.

    Ref Breese posting, Custom path & filenames is on same tab as folders - mine is defaulted to movies and standard settings and I have no issues, but either way, you should be able to fix it via one or other route.

    Good luck.
