Question Recording (Favorite) to Specific Directory

I know long ago this was not possible; has anything changed in the last 6-8 years that would now allow for a Recording (Favorite) to be recorded to a Specific Directory?

The option is certainly available through the web UI

This assumes that you have the SageTV Jetty webserver installed.

Then go to Schedule Recordings - Favorites Manager and click on one of your favorites. You should see an option for Original Folder or Alternate Destination Folder which you can then enter.

Does that work even if you are not converting to a different format (i.e. Automatic Conversion=No)?

I just checked, all the same options are available under the standard SageTV gui, the web ui is not necessary. Go to Favorites Manager, click on one of the favorites listed, and there is an Automatic Conversion option towards the bottom of the screen.

But I have a feeling that it only works for files that are automatically converted to a different format, not for the original file.

The other option is to use SJQ to run an external process. I used to have a process that would use handbrake to transcode shows to mp4 and move to a specific folder based on the Show Title.

I record to a local drive on the SageTV server to a single directory. Then nightly use SJQ to move them to my NAS in Show Title/Season ##/<filename.mpg>

Can you share how that is done? This is exactly what I'd like to do. I am unfamiliar with SJQ

This is really handy and I wish I had known about. I have four external HDs and multi-episode recordings get spread all over the place. I have had to periodically manually move them to a common location... a real pain.

Thanks for the feedback. Since it appears the embedded solution requires conversion, would if be possible to add a no conversion selection?

As a test I setup a favorite and selected the conversion type, quality and location. Video completed and nothing happened?

When does this process take place??

For SJQ.
Attached screenshots of how I have the tasks set in SJQ
Cron entry triggers the TV2Move script which looks for files to move to nas and triggers a movemedia task for each file to be moved

I have had this in place for a long long time. Please review for what might need to be changed for your setup. Been ages since I looked at the code.
I am a Windows setup for the Sage Server and NAS is unRaid.


TV2MOVE:
Code:
import com.google.code.sagetvaddons.sjq.network.ServerClient;
import com.google.code.sagetvaddons.metadata.Factory;
import com.google.code.sagetvaddons.groovy.api.MediaFileHelpers ;

// What directory are we moving archives to?
File dest = new File("\\\\tower\\");

// Queued tasks are marked with this metadata value
String SJQ4_QUEUED = "SJQ4_ARCHIVED";

// Are we running on Windows?  File names are not case sensitive on Windows so we need to handle that
boolean isWindows = System.getProperty("os.name").contains("Windows");

ServerClient clnt = new ServerClient();
int i = 0;
for(Object mediaFile : MediaFileAPI.GetMediaFiles("T")) {
    String filePath = MediaFileAPI.GetFileForSegment(mediaFile, 0).getAbsolutePath();
    String ShowName = SJQ4_METADATA.get("SJQ4_SEGMENT_0");

    if(isWindows)  
        filePath = filePath.toLowerCase();
    
    
    // If the media file is already stored on the NAS, it's already been queued or it's actively recording then just skip it
    if(filePath.startsWith(isWindows ? dest.toString().toLowerCase() : dest.toString()) ||
        MediaFileAPI.IsFileCurrentlyRecording(mediaFile) ||
        MediaFileHelpers.isBeingViewed(mediaFile)) 
        continue;
    
       println  (filePath + " to be moved ... ") ;
	   clnt.addTask("MVMEDIALR", Factory.getMap(mediaFile));
       MediaFileAPI.SetMediaFileMetadata(mediaFile, SJQ4_QUEUED, "1");
//    }
}
clnt.close();
return 0;

MoveMedia:
Code:
/******************************************************************************
     Move a SageTV Media File

     Last Modified: 16 Feb 2011
            Author: Derek Battams <derek AT battams DOT ca>

    Use this groovy script to move a SageTV media file object from one location
    to another.
    
    The media file to be moved is defined by the SJQ4_ID environment variable;
    the SJQ4_TYPE variable must also be "MediaFile".  The destination is given
    as the first command line argument to this script.  The destination is a 
    directory.

    This script will trigger a rescan of your media after a successful move; the
    rescan is necessary in order for SageTV to recognize the media file in its
    new location.
******************************************************************************/

boolean testMode = false; // Don't actually move any files, just print out what would be done
String flagsFile="\\\\PWM1\\Users\\PWM\\Documents\\SageTV\\Move_Recordings_Output\\HTPC-LR\\Move_Recordings_Output.txt" ;

Any idea how I can debug this problem? Simply will not work for me. (Win 10, SageTV 64)

Nothing in the sagetv_0.txt file that I can find (assuming this is the log file)
