Sage properties not recognized.

It appears that the latest build does not recognize Sage property files. I have tried several recordings with properties files and It does not use them. Previous Versions work.

Take back my previous comments, it didn't find your properties file but instead found a xml file. Is there an XML file present, check that?

Anyways putting a better patch for handling such situations (where it just looks for a presence of a file and then does not parse the rest). Now with the next build it will parse ALL metadata files in order until it finds one it can extract that data from. That way even if accidental files are lying around it won't impact the extraction.

Use the next build in a few minutes and it should solve your issue.

rboy1,

How do you determine if it is a Movie or not from the properties files.. I had some movies that were picked up as not movies. The properties file is below. Is it possible to look in the Genre for Movie ? I uploaded the log into a folder on your FTP site called NYPLAYER

Property file uploaded.

Can you upload the entire file to a server and post the link here instead of pasting the content.

Please don't paste content in future it make the forum unreadable

FYR the MediaType is used to determine
MediaType=TV
or
MediaType=Movie

Ok I see now ... the BMT metadata grabber for SageTV sometimes has trouble with certain names. I just added a PreMetaCustomCommand to add MediaType=Movie to the properties if the Genre contains Movie.
