PRS T1 and Plugboards

Hi,

I am using Plugboard entries to customize data sent to the PRS T1.
One of those is for example:
{author_sort} {series:| - | } {series_index:05.2f}
for author_sort and author. Metadata Management is set to automatic.
If I now send a book to the device, the Plugboard seems to be ignored. My solution, eject the device, plug it in again and let calibre work its magic.

This doesn't seem to be a bug in calibre, as I have seen (once) in the book list the correct entries, that were replaced after unplugging, while I watched.

Very strange behaviour.

This also happens on my T1. This is what I did (with the help of chaley the plugboard developer) to reduce the aggravation:
  • Set up an extra plugboard using EPUB/PRST1 which duplicates your device_db/PRST1 plugboard mapping for {authors}
  • Resent all my epubs to the T1

This extra plugboard will insert your customised author name into each epub during the send-to-device. It won't stop the T1 from throwing away your plugboard info but when it tries to re-extract author data from each epub it will be extracting the same customised value as it just threw away.

These are my two:
Code:
device_db:PRST1 = ([{author_sort}{series:| - | }{series_index:0>2s}] -> authors)
epub:PRST1 = ([{author_sort}{series:| - | }{series_index:0>2s}] -> authors)
Hope this helps

P.S. See this post, post #7 onwards, for a more detailed explanation
