Wiz.bin 162GB -Filled Disk

So something went crazy yesterday and I woke up to a full hard drive. Wiz.bin is 162GB. I don't know how to diagnose this or even what info might be helpful. I can say this seemed to happen out of the blue. No changes were made in the days leading up to this. Any ideas?

Windows 10
Latest Java
Latest SageTV Windows build
Weather plugin
Youtube plugin

I'm having a hard time getting much to start so I can't see version numbers for some of these.

You are probably getting bitten by the YouTube API failure. Look at the last few posts in the YouTube support thread in this forum.

Basically the "sort by date" function is broken which is causing the YouTube plugin to record WAY too many videos.

I think you are right. When I uninstalled the YouTube plugin, particularly the Youtube Downloader, it stopped growing. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction!

YW. This is not a condition I ever imagined when I wrote this plugin.

BTW, I just turned off all recording (did NOT uninstall) and that fixed it for me.

Please do tell how you did that. Does it still provide a way to show what has not been watched - I presume this would stream or download upon pressing play?

I'm not at home, so I can't give you step by step details, but basically this is what I did:

I went to each channel I was recording and adjusted the favorite to not record (there are 3 settings, and I set all to off/none/???) I then deleted all the recordings made.

You are just going to get a garbage listing until YouTube fixes things. This is 100% on YouTube, not tmiranda's program. The old saying garbage in garbage out applies. This is the stupidest thing I've heard a company like this do. I can think of 20 different and better ways to temporary fix the issue they had Friday. Oops, rant off.
