Prioritise HD recordings

Recommended Posts

bgregor

I have set up Emby to record a series of shows which are repeated across a number of different channels. Some channels have both HD and SD versions but emby recorded the SD version rather than the HD version of the programme. 

Is there any way for Emby to prioritise HD recordings over SD while setting up the recordings?

Hi Luke, 

Attached is a screenshot of 8 out of10 cats series recording. You will see there is a number of scheduled recordings this week. When I posted this request there was a program on Channel 4 HD and Channel 4 SD.  

Emby automatically chose the SD version to record rather than the HD version. It would be great to have a prefer HD selection tab in the series. settings as well as replace recordings library with HD if available.

What is your tuner?  With HDHomeRuns for example you can pick and choose channels that will get used by Emby (done in HDHomeRun software).  This allows you to remove all the SD channels.  This makes the guides and "on now" type screens looking better without the "dupes".  It also solves any recording issues like this.

If you set up the series from a 4HD occurrence, you can then lock to that channel in the drop-down menu.

Yes I know that but if you want to record all episodes across all channels including repeats. The priority needs HD.
