Rebuilding recordings database


#1

Is there any way to rebuild the recordings database manually? I’m trying to use one player for all of my videos. With Plex if I manually copy a video file over all I need to do is select “Update libraries”. I don’t see an obvious way to accomplish the same thing in Channels.

There is currently no way to import your own recordings or videos into Channels DVR. It only knows about recordings it makes itself.

So is there a button in the web interface for this yet? Or maybe a list of terminal commands? I was forced to remove (manually) several hundred recordings because of space limitations, and I can't figure out how to get the recordings database to regenerate. The web interface is too cumbersome to remove this many files at once.

Thanks, Tim! That did the trick.
