I just started using the regular production version of Channels dvr yesterday, but I see the import of prior recordings is considered to be in beta. I tried that to import my .WTV files from Windows Media Center and it worked. They are accessible and play fine on the server and android clients (Shield, Firetv, Miibox). I have 2 questions about this:
- Is Channels just pointing to the .WTV files in the source folder or have they been converted and stored in a new location? I didn’t see the 150+ files I imported in my specified recordings folder.
- The UI is a little rough for the import. Is there a way to organize them (even if it’s manual effort) so that episodes within the same show are grouped together? Right now it’s just a whole bunch of individual thumbnails with no apparent rhyme or reason. I was hoping to be able to do it natively rather than incorporate another application like Emby or Plex if at all possible.
