Recorded Program names.

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The standalone dedup package has been superseded by the dedup function in the web interface for more people.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!)
