Hi all,

I have just installed this package and it is working great. thank you.

A small question, if I click on a Record Engine Log in the Dashboard is shows the log, but selecting the tabs, Error, Status, Playback etc. does not just display those selected errors. Or, is that not the expected behaviour?

TIA

Greg

Not Implemented yet... so yeah, expected behavior.
Hopefully someday I'll get the time/motivation to finish it.

Hi,

I'm trying to find a way to delete recordings older than x days and was wondering if I made a cron job on the NAS to delete the files folder if that would produce any bad effects. Yes, Kodi will not be happy as it does not know about the deletions but I have a way to clean up the database following the deletions.

Thoughts please.

TIA

For the most part you should be ok doing it.
Make sure if checking folder that you check contents first - particularly Movies, Sports, etc..

Thanks. I was first going to check all folders for any *.mpg files greater than x days, if so delete them.
Then check for any empty folders and if so delete them.

BTW - Is there anyway of changing the recorded files format? eg: MKV, TS, MOV etc.

TIA
