Recordings not adding episode number to name

Added by Dave Travers over 5 years ago

The guide has the season and episode number and include episode in filename is ticked on the recording profile but they information is not added to the file name.
Using freeview in the UK
Using Tvheadend 4.1-1628~ga44061c on Ubuntu 15.10

It used to work a few weeks ago. Not sure what changed though.
Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

Dave

Hi Dave
I noticed the same thing today. Episode numbering in file names had stopped when I upgraded from 1351 to 1519, on February 14.
I do not know why I had not seen it before :-(.
It seems the file name pattern changed in this upgrade: the $e in the pathname format string changed into e (the $ disappeared).
Can you check if you also have an incorrect format string (Configuration - Recording - Profiles).

Yep mine is $t/$t%F%R$-e$n.$x.
Since posting I have deleted the .HTS folder and configured from scratch.
Did putting the $ back fix the problem for you?

Not so much. I changed the pattern to $t/$c$-t.%F.%R$.$e$n.$x and a file from a recording today is named More4-New_ The Good Wife.2016-03-24.22-00$..ts
The $. is where I would have expected S07E09. I'll look/test some more and probably open a bug report tomorrow.

Yep had the same here. It needs to be $-e, even then it doesn't add the episode number (even though the episode info is in the description).
