Full Version: Series folders not showing in Recordings list [SOLVED]

My zgemmas move series recordings into separate folders which is my preferred configuration. Is there a configuration for the Kodi PVR to present the recordings in the same way? I am only seeing the recordings in the parent STB directories and the series folders and recordings are not visible at all. Hope I am not asking too much, it is already a great addon.
If you put the following in a browser do you see any of these recordings at all:
Code:
http://ip-address/web/movielist

Have you checked the addon settings, under recordings maybe try Keep folder structure for records

Also, can you show the results of this URL: 
Code:
http://ip-address/web/getcurrlocation and http://ip-address/web/getlocations
Thanks phunkyfish - my box is recording atm so I hope to look deeper tomorrow. When I have changed options on the addon or the STB I'm never sure if any restart or reboot is required - kodi or zgemma.
http://ip-address/web/movielist

The <e2movies> show ok and the folders also show as <e2locations> as follows.

<e2locations>
<e2location>.Trash</e2location>
<e2location>Digging For Britain</e2location>
<e2location>Honour</e2location>
<e2location>The Chase</e2location>
<e2location>The Mole</e2location>
<e2location>Us</e2location>
</e2locations>
</e2movielist>

I do have Keep folder structure for records set


http://ip-address/web/getcurrlocation

<e2locations>
<e2location>/media/hdd/movie/</e2location>
</e2locations>


http://ip-address/web/getlocations

<e2locations>
<e2location>/media/hdd/movie/</e2location>
</e2locations>

Incidentally, I have added the movie folder as a source so that I can see the movies and folders under Files as I was hoping for the PVR. This would be fine for viewing but does not give me rename or delete options I would like to see.

Can you give a sample from movielist call where the recording is in a folder?

Are the e2locations included in the movielist call?

BTW the addon will restart itself if required after changing a setting.
Can you also share a screen shot of what it looks like in the recordings view?

Then maybe send me the full XML file returned by movielist and I can try and reproduce it here.

A full debug log would also be useful.
You may get what you want if you disable Kee folder structure for records. By default the addon will create a virtual folder based on each recordings title.

Keep folder structure for records setting doesn't seem to make a difference

Ok, so the recordings are not listed for those locations. Instead you have location tags. Strange.

Do you have a full debug log so I see what versions of everything you are running on?

Here we go - https://paste.kodi.tv/ajolucipok
Can you try this URL: http://your-ip/web/movielist?recursive=1

See if it lists the contents of each folder as well as the root location.
I added a new setting to recursively retrieve recordings which might solve your issue.

Can you try one of these test builds?

https://jenkins.kodi.tv/blue/organizatio.../artifacts

Or build yourself from this PR: https://github.com/kodi-pvr/pvr.vuplus/pull/301

Note that you need to be running Kodi Matrix to try this.
Thanks again phunkyfish
http://your-ip/web/movielist?recursive=1 did list the other directory recorded contents.

I have copied my 18.8 settings as backup (.kodi directory) and will tomorrow replace with 19 matrix. Not something I have done before.

Please can you point me to an explanation of loading a/your test builds?
If you are using Windows/Mac you can simply download the relevant zip from the link I provided and install from zip from the add-ons menu. If you are using Linux you would need to build the add-on yourself I think.

How do you install Kodi/add-ons currently?
On my Linux addons are usually installed from zip and repositories. However, the PVR has had to be installed from the command line using this - https://kodi.wiki/view/Ubuntu_PVR_add-on...%2Dargustv

I guess I would have to uninstall my present PVR addon before trying your fix. I have no idea as to how I could build my own PVR addon. I tried installing from your zip but it failed - invalid structure
