Bug Report

In some circumstances, certain individual recordings fail to appear in Recorded TV Manager.

October 24, 2009


  1. Only applies to WTV files produced by Windows 7 or TV Pack.
  2. Only applies if the last item (alphabetically) in a recorded TV folder is a WTV file.
  3. Software products affected:
    • Recorded TV Manager 3 Build 4.3.1
    • Recorded TV Manager Media Center Add-in Windows 7 Edition Build 4.1.1
    • Recorded TV Manager Console Build 1.3.3
  4. Only applies when running under Windows 7.

This is an indexing error in the code which interfaces with WTV files.  This is already fixed and will apply in all future releases of the affected software.  In the interim, there is an easy to apply workaround.


The problem occurs because the WTV file is the last item (alphabetically) in a particular folder, and because of the indexing error, the file is not seen.

  1. Create an empty text file named zzz.txt.
  2. Put a copy of that file in every folder in the Folder list

This will insure that a WTV file cannot be the last item in a Recorded TV folder, which eliminates the problem.
