HOWEVER, if you REALLY want to reduce your database usage there's another thing you can do. Mine was getting way too large (I have the oldest database as you'd expect, it's over 18 years old...has data from December 2002 in it when I first wrote SageTV) RAM usage was generally about 1GB, and I've almost cut it in half now.

If you set this in

and you have a really old DB, that'll clean out LOTS of things. But you'll then want to put that first one back to true after it loads it and does the daily maintenance (which it'll do right after startup...but it may take awhile to complete). What that'll do is remove all the Airings from the database that were for recordings you made at one point in time but it no longer has....normally, those are useful if you move files around so SageTV won't delete the metadata for those files if they aren't in the right place or other things went wrong. But after years, it'll just be storing tons of data it doesn't really need at all.

My 50% reduction was based on the new JAR with the Wasted cleanup change along with setting the above property once. My system has limited RAM and I didn't feel like building a new one, so this was an easy way to make it fast again w/out losing my 18 years of history.
I think I'm misssing something here. I went to Github and saw the entry for the fix. It looks *to me* like it is just the file(s) needed to compile a new version?? I downloaded the zip file, but it is a bunch or files.
I'm lost. I was looking for a file or a couple files to replace existing files in my SageTV installation but it doesn't seem to be that from what I can see.
Then again I'm a complete NEWB at the whole Github website.
