Do you have recordings from another DVR system, or maintain your own media library of home videos, DVD rips, etc? We would like to hear more about how your media is organized.
I will start with some examples of how my DVD rips and DVR recordings from my homebrew DVR (before Channels existed) are organized. Please use the same template to provide examples from your library. You can use the
find command in a Linux/Mac terminal or
tree on Windows to get a listing, then copy/paste some representative examples within
``` *paste* ``` in a comment on this thread.

(I have a mix of mkv, avi, m4v/mp4 files. TV shows are stored within show/season folders, and always use NxN filenames. Movies are sorted into genre folders).
We would love to see examples like this from WMC, SageTV, NextPVR, etc, as well as from users' existing Plex, Emby, Infuse, Kodi libraries.
This is purely for research purposes at this point, and will help us get a better understanding that may inform our future development efforts.
