Re: Import Recorder, best way to schedule?

If you want to do it with the Import Recorder then afaik you will need to create a tv grabber to do it properly. I believe mythtv can use any executable that starts with tv_grab in the file name to supply guide data. If you do a web search on xmltv I'm sure you'll find some details on how this works...

HD PVR 2 review / feedback

I know there is some occasional interest in the HD PVR 2.

Re: Scheduler sync to STB (dual tuner) & recording import

Although extra features are always nice I think some basic workaround like manipulating the start / end recording time might work just as well.

Re: Filter out duplicate concurrent programmes

Maybe you could consider a python script, you can run it as an event script for the scheduler event. This is from one of the sample scripts in the wiki or something. from MythTV import MythBE,MythDB,Channel,Record def get_recordings_from_backend(): mythtv = MythBE() upcoming = mythtv.getUpcomingReco...

Re: Scheduler sync to STB (dual tuner) & recording import

Thanks for the feedback. Always hard to guess how many others will be interested. I suspect more would be interested if they new it could be done and worked properly etc. Personally I think the goal should be to allow us to create a bunch of scripts to do this sort of thing so we can share / update ...
