Question Manually managing recordings

Just curious if this will work:

Scenario:
Let's say I have 2 drives, call them drive D: and E:.
I want to store all my archived programs on E:, and leave D: for recordings.
I configure both D: and E: to be recording directories.
I tell Sage to use all of D:, and none of E:
I archive programs as required.
Periodically, I manually move the recordings from D: to E: (Per these FAQ directions )

Will this work ok? Sage won't get confused or try to delete stuff on E: (because it exceeds the allowed storage of Zero) etc.

Cheers,
Corey

P.S. My wife thinks Sage rocks. (obviously so do I, but the wife vote counts for 10X)

Well, I finally got around to testing this out for myself, and it almost works like I wanted. I set up a video directory and told it to use at most 0 gig, then shut down Sage and moved some of my recordings to this directory. I previously had "moved to library" these files within Sage.

When I started Sage back up, it seems to have cleared the "library" flag, as the programs show up in "Recordings", rather than "Archived SageTV Recordings", so I had to set the flag again. Other than that, It worked pretty much like I wanted.

Second question:

When viewing Recordings, Sage groups similiar programs into folders, but it doesn't do this when viewing "Archived SageTV Recordings". Is that by design, or by oversight?

Cheers,
Corey

That's just the way that screen works -- it doesn't offer categorization options.

Um ... maybe on the Sage 2.1 fix-it list?? Or even a cool update for our STV developers to consider.
