Description

If I enable the EPG feature "Periodically save EPG to disk" and leave the server running for weeks, when I select "autorec" on a tv program that was also transmitted in the past weeks, new recordings are added to DVR Upcoming/Current recordings, BUT I also find all PAST episodes of the series added under DVR "Failed recordings" with "time missed" status.
While the fact that the "time missed" for past episode is technically correct, I think it would be better to just "ignore past episodes" from the saved EPG file when adding a new autorec series, or add a checkbox to enable/disable the feature (if not considered a bug).
Another thing about the saved EPG file is that, when I use programs like TVHClient it looks like the whole EPG file (also past) is sent to the client so you see all the program titles pass on the client EPG guide until it is synchronized to the current listing.
I think a feature like "refresh EPG file every ..." or something like that would be useful in these situations, because it looks like a lot of old data is (unnecessarily?) retained in the EPG file and causes these issues.

History

It should not work as you described. The old (past) events are removed from the tvh's database. It seems that something does not work as expected for your case.

I may add that after some tests I can confirm that the autorec past DVR "Failed recordings" with "time missed" thing is happening only for channels with the EPG populated via XMLTV. It does not happen with channel with EPG populated via OTA EPG.
