Anybody else seeing this? I never have problems with duplicate episodes. Are you using the recording storage pooling? I know some of the things such as number of episodes to keep may not work properly when the episodes are in different locations, but I don't know if this would have anything to do with that or not
I get duplicate recordings but never thought it could have anything to do with RTVHD. It also didn't seem to be consistanst/happening on all or most series. Just some so I have felt that it was more of a EPG thing on those titles. For the few series it happens on I just manually delete.
BTW I do not use RTVHD storage pooling but I do have 4-5 locations with RTVHD "watching" all of them. As far as MCE knows though I only have one recording location then WHS moves it to just one shared folder Recorded TV. I then manually move files/recording to other shares (HDDs) to distribute the "load"/filling.
RTVHD does a great job of handling the "watching" of all of the folders (local and several network shares).
I also do see this regularly. I've noticed is when I do, infact have duplicate of the same shows with different file names.
Good Luck Charlie.Charlie is 1.677.wtv
Good Luck Charlie.Charlie is 1.677 2.wtv
I will say that the record date/time on each of the duplicates is different though.
I have my file naming set as: Show Name.Episode Name.Channel Number.wtv
I do use storage pooling, but I only have 2 drives that WMC records to & some of the shows matching the above description are in the same folder, on the same drive.
On a side note, I do like the fact I can see duplicates as I can decide which one I want to delete & want to keep. The only downside is that when I do my multiple deletion of duplicates, I use the normal recording guide, as it can delete shows faster. If I delete a show in RTVHD, it takes anywhere from 30 seconds to a minute before I can delete the 2nd show (& so on)
For my recording defaults, the only thing I've changed was the # of minutes to start recording (on time) & stop recording (3 minutes if it can)
By chance, would it be possible to have RTVHD produce a list of duplicate shows/episodes that we could put a checkmark next to & press delete & have it delete a bunch of episodes at one time?
My thought that it could be on the Non WMC RTVHD interface
