The latest DVR pre-release build adds initial support for importing existing TV episodes into your DVR library.
Once imported, the shows will appears in the Recordings > Imports section of the DVR web UI:
This is an early preview of the TV imports feature, which means it still contains a lot of rough edges and a lot of bugs. Please temper your expectations accordingly.
Try it out and report your experiences below!
Note: You may want to take a backup before importing, in case things don't go well and you need to roll back. You can also spin up a new test DVR using a backup if you prefer.
Note: We're aware that some shows and episodes will not scan in correctly because metadata is missing in our Guide provider's database. If you're having issues with specific pieces of content, please post one or two sample directory/file names for the affected media. (For example,
./Lucifer (2016)/Season 01/Lucifer - S01E06.mp4).
