I know there are variations on this theme that have been requested before, but I think it is worth bringing it up again.
1. I'd love to see more info on why a recording failed right next to the recording that failed. A quick blurb would be enough to help determine whether to re-queue a title or just cancel it altogether.
Cannot connect to channel - for those times when the streaming channel is down or their service is being rebooted, etc.
Error authenticating user - any type of security error when connecting to the channel.
Content no longer available - the channel's server is up and running, you are able to log in if the channel requires some form of authentication, but the title is no longer available on that channel. In this case, you know you can just cancel the failed recording and not try again.
I'm sure there are plenty of other scenarios you might be able to cover, and you most likely have better wording too. But basically, this gives a quick visual cue on whether you need to just restart the Playon server/reboot your computer, skip any requeuing because the show is gone, or open a ticket because there may be an issue with the channel.
2. To extend this further, it would be really nice to be able to re-add all failed recordings to the queue again without having to click on title, click on try again, wait, click on title, click on try again, wait, etc. When there is only 1 or 2 titles, this isn't terrible, but with a large queue of titles that may have failed because the channel's server rebooted overnight or lost it's connection...
In many cases, a quick restart of the Playon Server, and a click on "re-queue all failed recordings" would make the process much more streamlined and user friendly. :)
