I have since noticed the double entries and also hate the way all videos
are lumped together, I don't know if this is a media player or myth
issue, though I have a recordings folder it's empty, or at least never
gets populated, the little circle thingy just keeps going a like a bunny
rabbit. I finally did get the pictures to work though. I got maybe one
video to play, seems like it doesn't have the right codecs or something,
but seeing since my recordings are mpeg2 and mpeg2-TS it's hard to
imagine that windows didn't ship with said codecs. Oh well, too bad,
not gonna waste any more time on it. I'll just map a drive to mythtv
where all the recordings are aliased.
