I recently set a favorite to start one minute earlier. While it does record accordingly, playback always starts at the zero minute mark.

Thanks for those. I'm going to keep it pretty basic (guest stars, air date, maybe some trivia) until I upgrade and then will be happy to let a plugin to do the more creative pieces.

Cheers

Does Sage consider your files Videos? Fred says .properties files are used to contain metadata for those types. I don't know how extensive your mods are, but I'm wondering if you'd be interested in...

Thanks, that's good to know. At least my current manual efforts are not in vain.

Cheers

I logged a call with SD, and cleaned up one channel. Looks like I have to do that with every anomaly that doesn't correct itself. Just wanted to see if others see this. Thanks for the replies.
