Win Add epsisode name to Recorded TV names
#1
I'm running a FrontEnd/Backend combined system, Windows 7 x64 , with Media Portal 1.10 as the TV Backend, and Kodi 14.2-RC1 as the front end. The good news is the everything works, I'm just looking at tweaking some behavior. In this case, when I view recorded TV in the MediaPortal front end, Recorded Shows list the Series and Episode name. However, when I view these same recordings in Kodi, the Series name is listed, but Episode name is not. I can't seem to find a way to change the way Kodi displays recorded TV files to show the episode name. Is there any way to do this?

I think you are talking about one time recordings of tv episodes, because for "series recording" (eg. weekly) it should be fine.

The only way that i know to change the view, is to change the skin file "MyPVRRecordings.xml" to show filenames.
In this skin xml there should be two "controls" with a <label>$INFO[ListItem.Label]</label> you have to change:

From original
PHP Code:
<control type="label">
    ...
    <
label>$INFO[ListItem.Label]</label>
</
control
to
PHP Code:
<control type="label">
    ...
    <
visible>IsEmpty(ListItem.FileName)</visible>
    <
label>$INFO[ListItem.Label]</label>
</
control>
<
control type="label">
    ...
    <
visible>!IsEmpty(ListItem.FileName)</visible>
    <
label>$INFO[ListItem.FileName]</label>
</
control

Also in MediaPortal TVServer Configuration -> Recording -> Custom paths and filenames -> Movies (manual or single type recordings)
i would change it to:
PHP Code:
%title%[ (%series%)] - [%episode%. ]%name

I hope it helps.

Lets say I'm recording the series "Friends", and the Episode title is called "The one about Recording TV". Since I've grouped my recorded items by Series and listed them by date. I have a Folder named "Friends" in Kodi in Recorded TV. If I browse that folder, There are a list of Recorded episodes, but all have the Name Friends, and are listed by date. The dialog on the right has the episode description but not the name. If I used the context sesitive selection, the menue that comes up lists date and time and channel and duration and episode name, so I know the information is being pulled from somewhere. Now I originally configured these recordings in the MediaPortal front end before I discovered the Kodi plug in. Does that make a difference?

I tried your modification to the myPVRrecordings.xml and it close. I'll tinker a bit more and see what I can get. Thanks!
