= Appendix H: Custom Recording Quality Settings =

SageTV comes configured with several recording quality settings built in, any of which may be chosen as the default recording quality by using the Recording Quality option in Detailed Setup: Multimedia Settings. Additional recording quality settings may be added by editing the properties file, though some care must be used when creating these new settings to make sure they will work correctly.

For further information regarding creating such custom recording settings, please see the SageTV Configuration web site at Look for the Configuration Paper titled: Hauppauge Cards & Recording Quality.

For sample custom settings and help in creating new ones, please use our discussion forum at

Note: Starting with SageTV version 2.1, the seeker/encoding_qualities properties are no longer used; only the mmc/python2_encodings settings are needed to specify recording qualities. These properties are described in the online document mentioned above.
