Series setup gone

#1

So at some point a few weeks ago 3/21, all my series stopped recording. I thought there were no new shows, but it seems like all the series are missing from WMC. Any idea how this could happen? is it related to EPG123 or something else? Any way to get them back?

I used the transfer tool to restore a backup from 11/20. Is there a better way or newer backups somewhere?

What version of epg123 are/were you using?

Use the Transfer Tool and look in c:\programdata\microsoft\ehome\mcepgX-Y\backup\recordings. The file with the latest datetime stamp prior to the database crash (loss of series recordings) will get you the updated series requests.

Thanks... It looks like there wasn't anything additional that I needed but good to know about this location.

I was using 1.6.2.2 as of 2/10/21. Updated to 1.6.3.1 last night after noticing the issue.
