    So I was browsing Movies tonight and noticed I have a Sort option for Recent Additions from newest to oldest, or oldest to newest, and it shows ALL titles.

    I was told this option wasn't available when I contacted Zappiti Support, which is why they made these changes to Recent and removed the option to limit it.

    If the option is in fact there, why can't we then set a limit? Why was the limit removed to provide functionality that already exists elsewhere in a Sort menu?

    Six66Mike commented  · 

    If you want Recent as your Showcase, you can't use it because it takes far too long to load. It also takes much longer to load the Recent module when it has to pull 500 titles, regardless how many pages you view. It has to preload as many pages as there are so it responds quickly.

    How does having a user defined limit (by number of titles or days since adding) hurt anyone who doesn't want this? They can just set null value 0 and have endless. But the thing is, they have that choice. Like we used to.

    Six66Mike commented  · 

    A user selected limit is the ideal option, either by number of titles to max out or a date added cut-off. ZMC was date added and you can set the number of days, not sure if there was a max limit but I usually had 30-45 days.

    Then rename it, it's no longer recent if you added it 2 years ago and thousands of titles ago, is it?

    It's absurd to have this when you have hundreds of TV series and thousands of movies.

    Six66Mike commented  · 

    Also worth noting, if you have Recent as your showcase module, it becomes unusable unless you like spending 5 minutes waiting for pages to load.

    This is the best image I could find of the RC - https://www.avforums.com/image.php?imageparameters=editorial/products/ca02763e93d8396ec5c4097f6cb25e08_9960.jpg

    Use the top and bottom part of the circle. Top is fast forward, bottom is rewind. Press multiple times for 1x, 2x, 4x, 8x speed (maybe more, I haven't gone higher than 8x).

    Left and right will let you skip 1 minute ahead or back, up and down will do a proper FF/RE scan.

    The older players used to let you jump ahead at like 10 minute intervals but best I can tell 1 minute is the only option to skip ahead with the latest players.

    Try the Contact Support form instead of posting this as a suggestion. It's a bug that should be reported. I've reported enough this week and the response has been underwhelming, so maybe you try and see what happens.

    Everything is labour intensive, they have forgotten how to make a positive user experience with their product.

    I support option 2, but I have no votes left to help you out. I want to have multiple selection options and be able to run an action on that selected set of content. It's common sense and I thought basic functionality for applications spanning decades.

    YES PLEASE! Find something else to display on the splash screen while it's loading.

    You need a network to scan and identify content. Can't you just use Offline Mode for local export as Zappiti Media Centre used to do?

    I have been chatting with support about this today. ZMC used to do this, if it found episodes not scanned it would group them to series and you could then bulk scan the whole thing. I can't add attachments in comments, but i have screenshots showing this. 10 episodes of 1 show missing, it allows you to identify the one show then it identifies all 10 episodes, you don't need to manually select through one by one.

    I had to spend half the night sifting through 60 episodes of 1 show because this feature was removed. And instead of bringing it back, I have to come try to vote it back into existence, because a positive user experience is apparently not what we're looking for here.

    The worst part is when you identify the show and go to select the episode, it's already predicted the right one every single time. It's wasted effort to click OK to select the show then OK again to confirm the episode is identified right. Once you confirm the show, everything else is correct.

    BRING BACK THE OLD FUNCTIONALITY!!! Stop this one by one nonsense, it's bloody ridiculous.

    Has this been implemented? I noticed when deleting files in my watch folder they seem to be removed from Zappiti Video as well.

    Six66Mike commented  · 

    In the old version it scanned and you confirmed if you wanted to remove it. If your scenario happened, you simply don't click OK (you had to open the Identification screen and click a few buttons) and avoid losing anything.

    In older versions it was 2 tabs, but you could still only do one at a time. I believe it shouldn't kick you out of this menu as soon as you select an image, there should be an OK button and it should allow you to select Cover and Background before clicking OK.

    If I had more votes I would give it to this, it's the reason I came here today. Allow users to select both images at the same time before exiting the screen.

    The problem with the current functionality is you can create a category and give it any name but you can only choose from stock images.

    Why can't we select our own .png files like previous versions in custom categories, or even change the stock images on default categories (or again, add our own)?

    Isn't that what the Seen, Unseen, Ongoing states are for, or have they gotten rid of those now?

    What features are missing that you would like to see supported by a Synology version for old hardware? The feature set wouldn't be improved, it would just be a packaged version of the existing software.

    What's wrong with running it from the _Zappiti folder on the NAS?

    What happens if you have to re-scrape something or add something you've seen before? I'm always adding things new and old, my preference still is to have a Stateless icon so you can filter everything you've added & decide from there what status to make it. Or at the very least have it optional to mark them as unseen by default.
