Plex DVR Bug

sfpoofsfpoof Posts: 5Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

I noticed an issue with my Plex DVR that even though episodes of some shows record, they do not get saved. All of the episodes with a "Play" sign on them are recorded, but the ones that do not have that sign, when clicked on state "Recorded Successfully" but the episodes are nowhere to be seen. (Both on the filesystem and within Plex)

Here is a picture of my recordings page: https://cvdn.box.com/s/p77vg4ssa4xk32jxrs0nfl35gu8663hf

    I forgot to mention, Mork & Mindy is the only one that DOES record but Plex cannot see it. If I change the primary directory's name to "Mork and Mindy", Plex can then see all episodes and properly play them.
