I have a suggestion for an enhancement.

The ability to choose which folder each program is saved to. I have several programs from the same channel, which are actually repeats of the same program , and would like to be able to save them all to one folder instead of seperate ones.

Another enhancement which i would like is a progress indicator for Replay Converter which tells you either what percentage of the show has been converted or about how much time is left. before the conversion is done. I've been converting lots of video lately and sometimes I think the converter is stuck because it takes so long.

Consider this done.

As for suggestions to improve an already topnotch product in Replay AV,
here are two:

(1)  Include an ability to either freeze the list of urls in the urlfinder
or copy the entire list of them to the clipboard.
Currently, this list seems to refresh every 3-5 seconds sometimes making
it challenging to find the right url quickly if the list is long.
Either freezing the list or somehow copying the entire list to the
clipboard or an external file would allow one, at leisure, to examine the
entire list.

(2)  This one falls sort of into the bug category.  Normally, I live in
the Central time zone (illinois).  We are spending JJan and Feb
in Florida which is Eastern.  RAV successfully adjusted itself when I
changed the pc system clock to Eastern time for all recording times with
one exception:
I had a recording scheduled to begin at 11:15 pm on Wednesday evenings.
It correctly changed the time to 12:15 AM (an hour later as is the case
for Eastern) but should have also changed the date to Thursday.
Hence, until I noticed the error, rather than the recording beginning when
it should at 12:15 am Thu morning, it began it 23 hours early at 12:15 AM
So the algorithm that notes switching of the system clock needs to include
something to make certain that the day of week is handled properly when
midnight comes into play.

And, while I was writing this, a 3rd enhancement crossed my mind:

(3)  There seems no way to back up my RAV settings.  I routinely copy my
schedule8.dat file listing stations, programs, and recording times; and I
would also like to be able to save my program settings
such as those regarding file naming format, where recordings are stored,
etc.  If this file already exists, just tell me which one it is and I'll
be saving it from here on.
Regardless, perhaps there ought to be an item on the tools menu allowing
non-techie users to easily export/import their schedule8.dat files as well
as program settings.

Applian may be a small company; but you have a big first rate product in
RAV which seems to be getting better
and better as time marches on.
Just keep up the great work giving customers a firstrate suite of
