Video Category batch set
OK, I love the category feature with SageMC. My collection is growing nicely and being able to filter it a bit is nice. But I have a ton of old sage recordings from previous installs that I didn't save the wiz.bin file, and a crapload of MPG files that make up several seasons of Dr Who. Maybe 600 files in all. Is there an easy way to mark them all with the "series" category? It would be a bit of a pain to do each one individually. AS it is, when I add a new DVD, I have to scroll through all of these to find the one I want to categorize.

And on that note, where are all of the images for DVD covers kept? There's been a couple that are more like pictures of the DVD case with the dvd sticking out a bit, rather than just the cover art itself. I could probably find better art manually, but I've no idea where to put it.

/as always, thanks to all of the people that make Sage such a great product!

Put the DVD cover art in the VIDEO_TS folder and call it folder.jpg.

Thanks, got a bunch of 'em fixed.

I also was able to somewhat do batches for the Categories. I had my Dr Who stuff in a folder named Dr. Who, and then a folder like season 12 and then folders for each group of episodes. If I changed the view to file system, and right click the Dr Who folder, the menu is blank. But if I went to the season folder, I could set it there. So eleven times is WAY better that six hundred.

All times are GMT -6. The time now is 01:49 AM.
