New-TV and New-Movies behaviour?

New-TV and New-Movies behaviour?
hi,

What is the default behaviour for 'New-Movie' & 'New-TV' ? is it the last say 20 movies or TV shows that have been indexed when YAMJ has been run?

And how is the sorting of the movies/tv shows presented?

I would like to control the behavior as I see some movies that appear when I know that they have not been added to YAMJ recently.

An there are movies I know I just added, that do not appear.

I checked the YAMJ Wiki to and was not able to find an answer to the above

thanks

litfoo

RE: New-TV and New-Movies behaviour?
Files are added by the last modified date.

So if the modified date of the video file is recent it will sow up in the New list.

RE: New-TV and New-Movies behaviour?
At the moment, I show 16 movies out of my total library of 1000+

Any ideas why it is showing 16? is this number a variable set somewhere that I can change?

When you say the modified date of the video file - I take it you mean in my library?

and I have checked -out of the 16 movie files there are about 4 or 5 that have 'Date Modified' in the future? how and why would this happen?

also there are new movies that I expect to be in 'New-Movies' but are not - the fanart,banner images and nfo have todays date but for some reason the video file has a date from the past - any ideas why this would be happening?

You actual video files are what affects if they show up in the new category or not.

If your files have a modified date set in the future you may need to get a program that can change the date of the file. I never experienced such issues so i cannot suggest anything.

The number of files can be changed in the moviejukebox.properties file:

PHP Code:
mjb.newcount.tv=0
mjb
.newcount.movie=0
mjb
.newdays.tv=31
mjb
.newdays.movie=31

PCH C-200 8GB USB -> HDMI -> Sharp LC46D64U (Harmony 550)

Thanks.

Managed to modify the dates that were in the future with BulkFileChanger

Do you know how the modified date works on the actual video file? There are some videos I have retrieved recently, but the dates/time for the video file are in the past. (I am using Ember Media Manager to scrape for fanart/covers/nfo creation)

Frustrating as I want to ensure all 'recently' retrieved files make it into my 'New' folders

RE: New-TV and New-Movies behaviour?
I find it simpler just to use something like "filetouch" on windows to just set the date on the files as I acquire them, thus ensuring that they are all correctly dated

RE: New-TV and New-Movies behaviour?
Thanks for the suggestion of filetouch Omertron.

Does this mean I have to look at the modified date each time to ensure it has a currrent date? and if not, i have to go in an manually edit it?

could the reason for my behaviour above be that my retrieved movie was released in say 2007 and kept the date from when it was first made available? as opposed to the date when I retrived it.

RE: New-TV and New-Movies behaviour?
If you download files allot that are inside archives like RAR or Zip then the Archive keeps the modified date in tact no matter what date you downloaded the file it will retain the date of when it was archived

Thanks Specter - that would explain the behaviour.

I tried FileTouch as Omertron suggested it works great. Thanks. Is there a way, or is there separate program, that would allow a rightclick->filetouch action. Similarly, I wonder if there is a way to integrate this into something like SABnzb to automatically change the modification date.

There are a lot of post processing scripts for sab that can do this and a lot more. check the sab forum.

There is a "secret" setting in Sabnzb called "ignore_unrar_dates"

How to use it, is described here: http://wiki.sabnzbd.org/configure-special

RE: New-TV and New-Movies behaviour?
you could use either filechanging tools as a postproc job with sabnzbd, but far easier to use "ignore_unrar_dates" as nawo69 suggests.
