    Adding a HD

    If I add a larger capacity HD to my HTPC, and point GBPVR to this new drive as my Recordings folder, will GBPVR look for my old recordings on the new drive, not find them and remove them from the DB? Or is the full path stored in the DB so I'll continue to have full access to the recordings through GBPVR?

    It will look for the recordings where they were originally recorded.
    With the default setting in config.xml it will remove recordings it cannot find
    <AutoRemoveMissingRecordings>true</AutoRemoveMissingRecordings>

    New recordings will be saved where the directory in config points to.

    Make a backup recordings dump from config and probably backup your database as well (can't have too many backups.

    What I did was to use a "find and replace" on the exported recordings to point to their new location and re import the list.

    Maybe change <AutoRemoveMissingRecordings>true</AutoRemoveMissingRecordings> to false while you are messing around (restart recording service for it to take effect).
