Yep, have a look in your config.xml for "Debug_RequestAllRecordings"

Awesome. Thank you!

Do I want to make it "False"??

I read somewhere that you were going to introduce a feature that would allow us to make TV channels appears as Radio channels. Is that there, and if so, is it in the GUI?

Sorry if the name is confusing, it made sense to me lol Smile

In your case, you want to set it to TRUE. If true, it will send empty paths to XBMC in the GetRecordings call, thus making it "RequestAllRecordings" from the backend when you actually play one. If false (the default) it will behave as per previous builds, where the file paths for completed recordings are sent to XBMC, and playing a completed recording has no further involvement with the backend ServerWMC

Yep, it's called "ForcedRadioChannels" in the config.xml and supports number ranges with either dashes or comma separated.

eg
Code:
<ForcedRadioChannels>700-750,795,802.1,802.2</ForcedRadioChannels>

Just an update: This problem still occurs on Gotham 13.1 using OpenELEC if RequestAllRecordings is set to the default of false.

I've posted over at OpenELEC to report the problem, but nobody responded.

I welcome comments and suggestions for the XBMC Set-up Guide that I wrote.

Well, I think I found the problem. (Fingers crossed).

I was duplicating the bug again this evening by changing the filenames, and found that after I changed the filename of an existing recording, then deleted another existing recording to force XBMC to reload the recordings list, the log would show that XBMC was attempting and FAILING to obtain a thumbnail from an old DVR-MS file that I have. It was always that one file and just that file. Typically, that would happen right before XBMC loaded the new recordings list containing the newly found (renamed) file). When I attempted to play the newly discovered (renamed) file, it would fail.

However, occasionally, XBMC would NOT attempt to load that thumbnail, and in those cases, the newly discovered recording would play just fine.

So, I moved that old DVR-MS file out of my watched folder and then did my test again. I've tested it several times and the newly discovered recording seems to play just fine.

I'm going to give it a day or so to verify, but if it works now, it would seem that there's some kind of bug that makes it so that if XBMC loads the recording list and is unable to find a thumbnail from a recording, it is then unable to play any of the other newly found files until an older file is played..

Never mind. That didn't fix it either. Back to RequestAllRecordings - True.
