    Special Characters, sweeper rename ' instead of '

    That is the basic problem with theTVDB, it may claim "You've found the most accurate source for TV and film." but it goes on to say "Our information comes from fans like you" It all depends on individuals supplying correct information to the various sites and for broadcasters using accurate...

    [webif] Web Interface 1.4.x

    Yes but only the crid suffixes are stored in the database to save space, this fix only affects the initial set up of the series recording and doesn't affect any subsequent episode that appear in the schedule later.

It turns out that both series share the series CRID on ITV (SD only) and Dave This was a long standing bug but has been exposed by some recent changes that I made so I have coded a one-liner fix that...

    Item stuck in Queue Tasks after crash - how to remove reminder please

    The 'file in use' would indicate that it probably is running - it could be something else but unless the recording was being played it is fairly unlikely to be in use by anything else. Restarting after failure is pretty well tested over the years

    Item stuck in Queue Tasks after crash - how to remove reminder please

    It is perfectly normal for a queued task to be back in Running after a crash - it is supposed to rerun incomplete queued tasks. What would be abnormal is when a task stays in running for an unusually long time (irrespective of whether the a crash had occurred) and needs to be investigated by...

    An alternative to the Humax Aura

    Having had the vbox for a while now I do not recommend the vbox XTi 4144 for DVB-T/T2 There are still far too many serious issues considering it was actually released in 2019 and is a follow on from an earlier box so should have been largely resolved. There are still large gaps in the over...

    Get Win7 to recognise HDR-FOX T2 as external hard drive.

    Special Characters, sweeper rename ' instead of '

    It would be quite useful to add an episode change option to the Rename function (as well as the arbitrary command option for Sweeper) Episode is not a standard hmt field but one that @af123 squeezed into unused space
