Congrats on the new release! Changelog looks fantastic.

I'm slightly confused. Can these 'internal variables' be used as
automatic substitution variables for the recordings directory?
e.g., for TV series which don't publish episode numbers in the EPG, or
which happen every day (e.g. soaps) can I setup a search timer to
record to a directory of 'SeriesName~%year%%month%%day%' ?
