  1. Emby currently quietly deletes scheduled live tv recordings if it has done an EPG/Guide update and the schedule changes in the updated feed. Often, before guide data is updated due to broadcaster emergency changes to exiting schedule, I would have recorded the original programme intended. Then the name changes for another programme and emby just forgets about it, instead of treating it as a manual recording and still recording it. It also doesn't log into a "Recording Hiccups" type log. Emby should look at the recording time of the original programme, and then record for that amount of time and label programme accordingly such as "Manual Recording" or "Schedule change" OR, if the new programme name is just a name change in updated EPG data, but the length was the same, just change the recording name to the new updated value instead. I've had this happen quite a few times now. A well known actor dies, or a VIP public person dies and the broadcaster makes a change and publishes a time later that day for a tribute programme or episode to be shown. If you go into the guide and select the original programme in the EPG and then add extra minutes to pad on to make the new recording length accommodate the change, it gets wiped out if there is a guide change (the guide data provider often doesn't always realise in time and sometimes they do!). It doesn't matter if the programme is still recorded under the original programme name as long as you have the recording! Most of the time, the slot is a similar duration and just the programme name changes though. Even better would be ability to do a MANUAL recording of start and end time anyway, especially if the guide data provider doesn't update its data like it did recently for the UK and we were getting near expiry of it.......
