Changeable rec directory path mayhem.

Recently decided to make my SageTV configuration a little more "network friendly" for things such as Sage Job Queue, and as part of that process, I switched over a number of Recording Directories from the Windows filesystem directory path over to a UNC path instead.

Partway through the process, I discovered that rather than needing to create a new entry and destroy the old entry as I progressed, I could just change the existing entry instead.

Consequence of this: SageTV still recognizes the original (windows) recording directory path, even though it no longer is configured as a valid path for SageTV to be using.

SageTV also recognizes the new UNC path provided for those recordings. Which means that for those impacted directory paths, I'm now seeing double entries for every recording contained therein. And when you're talking multiple 4TB drives, that is a lot of double vision. Luckily for new recordings going forward, the double-vision isn't happening as they never were recorded using the old Windows path.

Right now I'm trying to figure out if there is a way for me to get rid of the entries for the old path without having to completely reshuffle(/invalidate windows side) directory trees, or just wiping out my wiz.bin and starting fresh.

Either way, this should be getting noted as a bug to be addressed so other people don't likewise find themselves with a situation like this they need to try to recover from.

You need the old entries to physically exist again ...identically. Do a scan with these available but empty and sage will remove those entries.

Which would be the route of invalidating the old Windows directory paths by giving it an empty directory tree to climb so Sage doesn't just think they're offline.
