Looks like I typo the URL. Fixed the command.


#43

Ok it worked. What exactly is this going to do?


#44

It will create a json metadata file for each recording, which can be read by mcebuddy beta so it knows the correct show name and episode details.


#45

ok I will let you know how it goes. Thanks for working on this!


#46

The first recording did the same as previous ones have been doing.


#47

Do you see a .json file next to the .mpg file?


#48

nope


#49

I see it on the next recording that ends in 25 mins


#50

Did it work?


#51

Yep. I had to change a setting in MCEBuddy but it worked that a charm!


#52

Cool. Which setting?


#53

The setting to force the file to be renamed.


#54

Is this power shell command assuming the DVR server is on the computer where MCEBuddy is running? If Iā€™m running MCEBuddy on a separate computer, do I simply replace the URL with that of my DVR server?


#55

Yes


#56

Any chance that Sporting Events could go into a different folder than TV Shows. Like Sports maybe? I need MCEBuddy to not rename them like the TV Shows.


#57

In the mcebuddy json file we are marking sports already, so it should be smarter about it. Can you check one of the json file and verify it says "IsSports":true


#58

It does & I am going to try to make some changes in MCEBuddy.


#59

You should be able to set up conversion rules in MCEBuddy to process sports shows differently. For example, I have some shows that are converted to MP4 and moved to different folders so my kids can see them in Plex in different libraries.

Yes i was able to make the changes needed to make it work
