Say I tried to record the same programme twice, once from DVB-T and

The last number in a recording's directory name is the VDR instance

How would I be able to tell which is which in the

I'm afraid there is no way to see this in the OSD.


I'm pretty sure that I have had identical recording names, just one
was visible in the OSD.
Deleted that one and, the other one automagically appeared in the OSD
after it was updated.

VDR worked perfectly.

Which version of VDR are you using?
The channel number as part of the recording directory name
was introduced in version 1.7.3.


i have this issue with version "1.7.16-24yavdr1".
It happens when an auto timer records a show on SD&  HD (ORF1&  ORF1 HD
in my case).

only once in the recording list.

I just tried this by recording the same programme on "Das Erste HD" and "Das 
which gave me the directory structure

  drwxr-xr-x 2 kls users 4096 Jun  4 14:47 Rote_Rosen/2012-06-

Both recordings show up in the "Recordings" list and can be replayed just fine.

Can you reproduce your problem with plain vanilla VDR 1.7.28?
