View Full Version : [SOLVED] How can I change Recording / Playback Group?
October 24th, 2008, 09:07 AM
OK, I've got a list of stuff I've recorded. Until I'd fully got to grips with Myth,I didn't bother assigning a recording group when scheduling, so it's all in the 'Default' group.
I'd like to be able to re-assign recordings to a different group, so that I can use the display filters on the View Recordings menu, but I can't seem to find a way of doing this, from the Frontend GUI, at least.
Am I missing something, or can't I do this from the frontend?
A thought occurs while typing this, could I do this via Mythweb?
Any help appreciated.

With mythweb you can change the recording group. Another way would be to modify the tables directly in MySQL using phpMyAdmin or directly from the commandline.
I would recommend mythweb.

I'll have a look at the Mythweb option tonight - I really don't want to go delving into MySQL just yet. Not until I have a backup system in place anyway!

Nope - Mythweb will show the recording group, but it won't let me change it. Ah well - It's not important.

Now there's a thing.
I looked today, and now when I bring up the menu (cursor right) on a recorded programme within 'watch recordings', and select change storage options -> change recording group, there's the goups to select from.
I think the problem for any that may stumble across this, is that although I had created a new recording group (when scheduling a recording), it was only available once the recording was actually made.

I've filed this as Bug #290699 (https://bugs.launchpad.net/mythbuntu/+bug/290699)
If I create a recording group, it is only available to add other recordings to, once it has something in it. If I delete all items from a group, the group disappears also, and has to be created again, by the longwinded process of scheduling a recording and creating a new group in the storage options.
