Re: "Last chance" option?

Fantastic. I think TiVo has that feature and I can imagine it would be really useful to see at a glance whats about to auto expire. :D

Re: not recording part 2!

No thats fine... I know what you mean. I'm a bit of an advocate for the old VCR - OK it may not be as clear as digital but there is that ritual of watching a film on VHS ;)

Re: not recording part 2!

lol - I've still got my Toshiba V852UK under the Tele for when I pickup a film from the Charity shop ;) Sadly the Sat Control is no longer supported by "comparable" Freeview boxes. The reason for the OP was we love the Old carry on films so we have a keyword record for "Carry on". Naughty ITV1 ran a...

[SOLVED] Jumping/Juddering recordings

Just as a note I think I may have solved juddering or jumping playback of recordings. There seemed to be no pattern, I initially thought the transmission from the tower to my aerial was faulty but I could rewind and re watch a part of a recording that was jumping and it will be smooth. This has happ...

Re: not recording part 2!

Lots of ways to do it. But to give a good answer list program 1 title and subtitle and program 2 title and subtitle. If they are different, then it's 2 separate programs. Set both to record. If they are the same exact titles and subtitles, either extend the first one xx numbers of minutes to record...

not recording part 2!

Hi there. I'm wondering if it is a configuration issue or such however ITV is always breaking a long film midway with typically a New bulletin and when the second half is shown the second half is not being recorded. I assume this is because the MythTV reports the program as already been recorded (Pa...

Re: Autoexpire active with 50% disk used

Thanks for the reply Bill.

The only ref to Expire is PlaybackWLAutoexpire or am I looking in the wrong area?

Autoexpire active with 50% disk used

Hi there. Puzzled over this. Seems that my myth box is auto expiring recordings at an alarming rate, some that have just been recorded that day, as if the disk is full however it says between 50 to 55% used. Bit of a head scratcher as I've gone though the settings in MythWeb and can't see anything o...

Re: "Last chance" option?

Sorry I did not put that clearer. I see where you directed me to see the expiration list, however it would be good if the information in that list is displayed in the "Program Library" not hidden away in a section

Re: "Last chance" option?

Thanks for your quick feedback Craig, is there a way to translate this into the programs listings, for ease of use?

Thanks

"Last chance" option?

I'm sorry if its been discussed elsewhere however as there are pages and pages of recordings its sometime hard to keep track of ones that are about to Auto Expire. I wondered if there is a way to create a grouping similar to the way "Watch List" is displayed but called "Last Chance" where and all th...

Full Disk

As far as I'm aware I have autoexpire active however the partition is virually full. What will happen, will myth up the anti on the auto delete or will it stop recording?

I thought Autoexpire would handle and create necessary disk space but it seems to be recording more than it is deleting.

Re: DVD Plays some DVDs but not Others

Ah thanks.. I had changed it to /dev/sr0 but hadn't tried "default". The region was not setup so set that and played 2 random DVDs with no problems last night with no problems so its looking good. If it's still playing up I'll try "default" ;)

Many thanks for the advise

DVD Plays some DVDs but not Others

hi there. Having a few issues playing some DVDs on my myth Box. Some DVDs work fine, others come up with an error saying it is unable to open /dev/dvd. It almost seems some codec related problem? VLC play the "non playing" DVDs fine out of Myth Front End. All the DVDs I'm trying are commercially pro...
