Re: Script for sending Mythtv recordings to a NAS

Skinah, could you please provide instructions to modify your script so that the finished file is not placed into a folder? The easiest way would be to give a fake location to the script for the NAS, that way the move fails to work and the files are all left in the fallback location. The Movie scrip...

Re: Script to export Mythtv recordings to a folder or NAS

No problem. I'm just updating the script in the first post again... The script now has a Quality setting you can edit at the start of the script that allows you to choose the handbrake quality or if you set it to 0 zero it will then skip handbrake and output the lossless file. I also re-wrote some c...

Re: Script for sending Mythtv recordings to a NAS

Skinah, I've been testing 0.28 now with the fixes and I can confirm that the original TV Show script works in 0.28 with the latest fixes. So I've seen some changes you have made mostly for the Movies script. I'm planing on just using the original TV Show Script unless you think I'm missing somethin...

Re: Script for sending Mythtv recordings to a NAS

I found a few bugs which are now fixed in the very first post of this thread. Bugs were only in MP4 processing and were causing the cuts to occur in the wrong places and missing ends. To upgrade make sure you are using MKVMERGE version 9.5 or newer and BC is installed, instructions are in the start ...

Re: Script for sending Mythtv recordings to a NAS

Try this line manually in a terminal session as it seems to have crashed or stopped at this point, you just need to edit it to have your correct output location in case it is a folder permission causing it make sure it is the same location. It may be something as simple as you have run out of HDD sp...

Re: Script for sending Mythtv recordings to a NAS

the backend setup has a setting that allows you to limit the job queue between set times, that may work for you but the commercial detection may be stopped, not sure, give it a go first as a second option allows the flagging to occur when the recording starts. I let mine run all the time as I want m...

Re: Script for sending Mythtv recordings to a NAS

If the script is run on a TV Show the compression is far higher than a Movie, so if making the following change to the script keep that in mind that you can choose two different amounts of compression or if you want both to be higher you will need to find both lines that mention Handbrake.. Look for...

Re: MythTV, Verizon Fios, Raspberry Pi, SiliconDust HDHomeRu

Look at adding a FLIRC for your remote support. You can use any old remote you have laying around and use the flirc to control kodi for a low price. If you have more to spend you can then add a harmony remote with a harmony hub.

Re: FE/BE recommendation

For a remote I use a Logitech Harmony remote, they have a few in their range which are RF not IR and the base unit has IR blasters if your surround amp and other gear is inside a cupboard. I also use a FLIRC to control my frontend. Never have issues with this setup.

Re: User job arguement %RECTYPE% in user jobs

Category returns values like comedy, drama and so on with my guide data. I have looked at the rectype values in the database and they seem very consistant and will give me what I need and are an integer not a bool. Cat type is not documented here will try it to see what it does. https://www.mythtv.o...

Re: Script for sending Mythtv recordings to a NAS

I just uploaded a newer version which no longer needs you to supply the recording location so it should work for your situation now. You will need to enter the mythtvbackend setup and adjust the user job line to supply this location. Info on how to setup the script is as always contained in the scri...

Re: Script for sending Mythtv recordings to a NAS

I just updated the Movie and also the TV Show scripts to do better lossless cuts of HD mp4 recordings. It now uses less HDD space to complete the task, better logging, is faster and has less dependancies. Code is in the first post of this thread. NOTE: if upgrading you need to enter the mythtv backe...

User job arguement %RECTYPE% in user jobs

Currently it is supported in events but not in user jobs. If possible it would be great to add the support so my user job scripts can work out if a recording is a movie or a series. I dont believe there is a way to do this currently so this would seem easy to add feature. %RECTYPE% would return 1 if...
