Is there a way to make a list of my many, MANY shows on hard disc? I know there must be a way to do this w/out typing all those dates.
Please help!

Sure, there's an easy way if you know you DOS commands.
Say all your shows are in the following folder: c:\myshows

Press the Start button --> Run... --> type in: cmd.exe --> Press OK
You will get a DOS prompt.
Type in:
cd c:\myshows
dir > mylistofshows.txt

Open the mylistofshows.txt file and all the folders will be listed.

Thanks, that makes thing ssooo much easier, you wouldn't believe how long I've been trying to figure that out.
I suppose that probably doesn't work on all the sub-folders, still a huge time saver though. :wave:
