In the release PostUpdateEPG.bat will be executed after the EPG update occurs.

I am going to write an executable that can be placed in the batch file that will have a supporting xml file of the form.

<settings>
<show name="Seaseme Street" keep="5"/>
</settings>

Will read gbpvr path from registry, will load config.xml and get the recording path.

We will then walk though each show in the recording path and list the mpegs. Sort them. Then it will delete the oldest ones till the count is correct.

Thoughts?

Jorm,
I thought that sub was working on a setting to keep only the latest X recordings of a show... Sounds much like what you are planning

Sub,
correct me if I'm wrong.
Greetz,

I am planing on doing a feature like this, but its not in the next release so this may meet your short term needs.

Something is wrong with the forum software. I'll look at it once the next release is out of the way.

I guess I would only do the work around solution if sub is planning this in the far term.

Its not going to be in the pending release, but *maybe* the next one, so probably about 6 weeks away.

I would consider that near. I will hold off.

Thank you.
