Recording: Programme Titles

Member
Hi,
I have had this problem for a long time now.
When I make a recording the finished programme shows the correct title if its a series (eg coronation street) and in a folder, but if the recording is, say, a film, and is at the bottom of the folders, then it doesnt display the programme title, but shows as the first line of text (from the programme info section)
This is the same for every non series programme, and as such you dont know the name of the recording, you have to work it out from the programme info.
Sorry, does that make sense?

Not really. Where are you looking - on the Humax media menu or in the media browser in the WebIF? Do you have any sweeper rules running?

If you go up to the next folder level, have you set auto-dedup?

It's a Custom Firmware package the De-Duplicates file names, replacing the programme name with the first part of the programme description, there is an example HERE

Auto-Dedup is switched on by selecting the folder option with OPT+ (See Picture HERE), however I didn't think it was possible to apply this to the top (root) folder as there is no OPT+ icon for this
EDIT
Correction - There is an OPT+ icon that can be applied to the 'My Video' folder by clicking on Parent Directory (I had never done that before), so it is possible that you have done this

Look at the recordings list, as in your picture, and click on the "parent directory" near the top. This should take you up one level.

Is there an icon which looks like pages aginst the "My Video" folder?

If there is, click on opt+ and disable dedup.

Not sure what you have done, was auto-dedup enabled? There is a file that logs auto-dedup in Web-If >> Diagnostics >> View Log Files >> Auto.log, look for :-
Code:

Why do they all say EXPIRE?
I had an issue a while back when everything (recordings) was deleted from the hard drive

Because you set the Auto-expire option and it's deleting stuff once it's a week old.
If I had to guess, I'd say you were randomly clicking around the WebIf without knowing what you are doing.

I had issues a while back and all recordings deleted one day (think Ive read about some error that does this?)
Anyway I had eventually managed to update the CFW and I NEVER altered any files other than to put bit torrent on.
So it was pretty much stock.
I havent altered anything since, but today had some time so thought Id ask about the file naming problem thats dogged me for months (since before I updated the CFW)
I have just removed the auto delete options, so should be good to go now?

Curious. You have been suffering from some strange WebIF options getting set on your video folders - auto-dedup was renaming the recordings, and auto-expire was removing recordings after a period of time. IIRC these actions are triggered by the presence of specific flag files installed in the relevant folder tree. Any chance you could have copied them in from somewhere?
