    Hi all,

    I have a vanillla HDR-FOX T2 and i have series linked a number of childrens programs. Now I have an issue were I have recorded a number of the same episode on to the box over time. For example I have at the moment 117 episodes of ballymoray and about 30 or so episodes of Justins House. I dont have an third party firmwares installed or anything. I am just wondering if there is any software or anything that I can use that will auto rename the files so I can then delete all the multiple copy of the same file?

    There is. The following links refer you to the Wiki entries and any forum discussion I can find about them.

    First, there's series-filer, which will automatically shift nominated recordings into a sub-folder like "Kids" for example. Wiki (click); Forum (click).

    Then there's dedup, which can turn bland name-and-date file names into episode names (if the data is available in the EPG). Wiki (click); Forum (click).

    The standalone dedup package has been superseded by the dedup function in the web interface for more people. It also removes duplicates, hence the name. I find it invaluable for kids's programmes (Octonauts!)

    It made short work of 190+ Shaun the Sheeps with the same title, A brilliant Utility. See screens HERE ( Screens 4 and 5)

    Yes, I think Series Filer deserved a better description in the WiKi, Now updated HERE
