Ability to filter future series recordings by metadata

I've read other posts about Football, NASCAR, and other sports, where you want a series recording only for certain teams, NASCAR Series, etc. This is not the same as being able to search, but more like a filter in the series settings. I don't feel you would ever get it right, trying to parse the "Title" and present a list of options. My request is to simply allow a filter to be applied to the "Title" of the series. That way, we can control what gets recorded as a user based on what our chosen provider is putting in the title.

 

Having said that, it might be useful to have filters for other data as well. Maybe this could also be used to implement recording some future show that's not in the guide yet, by allowing a filter on the show's name itself.

 

Each of these types of recordings would show under the "series" tab.

 

You could even have a check box to say that the filter is a regular expression, or simply use basic wildcards.

Hi.  This would really be the same as being able to setup a Series recording by keyword, no?

 

Live TV - Allow custom recording by keyword

 

Almost, except the recording does start with the existing information from the guide, then filter it down. It's no different from the existing filters like, "only new", "only this channel", etc. Just add "title contains". This might be easier to implement than the request you referenced.

But, if we had the recording by keyword feature, it would cover your scenario, correct (realize, you could probably use multiple keywords)?

 

We try to avoid multiple ways of doing the same thing because they become very hard to support.

Totally agree. As long as I can do what I want, I don't get hung up on how it's done :) I can learn it and I can teach it.
