Tuner status

Post by TerribleTadpole » Sat Jun 03, 2017 11:26 am

Hi all,

I'm interested in being able to query the back-end for the current tuner status: recording or idle. This is the same information as appears in the "Information Centre" on the front end under "Tuner status".

Is that available in the API?

Yes, yourBackend:6544/Dvr/GetEncoderList (more information than you want.)
Try the above from your favorite browser. https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/DVR_Service

Or maybe you just want: https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/0.25_Python ... ers#MythBE
and use isRecording (same page.)
