I've successfully triggered recordings before with the api interface using
/Dvr/GetRecordSchedule?ChanId=... &StartTime=... and throw it back with Dvr/AddRecordSchedule
but it's not working this time and I think I'm not choosing the right parameters.
The parameters I'm seeing and changing are as follows.

I get 'Error updating recording'.
Code: Select all
Same: AutoCommflag = false Same: AutoExpire = true Same: AutoMetaLookup = false Same: AutoTranscode = false Same: AutoUserJob1 = false Same: AutoUserJob2 = false Same: AutoUserJob3 = false Same: AutoUserJob4 = false Same: AverageDelay = 0 Same: CallSign = BBC ONE Lon Same: Category = Entertainment Same: ChanId = 10001 Same: Description = The quiz in which contestants try to score as few points as possible by plumbing the depths of their general knowledge to come up with the answers no-one else could think of. Same: DupIn = All Recordings Same: DupMethod = Subtitle then Description Change *** EndOffset = 2 to: 1 Change *** EndTime = 2023-02-02T18:00:00Z to: 2023-02-02T17:38:00Z Same: Episode = 42 Same: Filter = 0 Same: FindDay = 5 Same: FindTime = 17:15:00.000 Same: Id = 0 Same: Inactive = false Same: Inetref = New: *** LastRecorded = Same: MaxEpisodes = 0 Same: MaxNewest = false Same: NewEpisOnly = false Same: ParentId = 0 Same: PlayGroup = Default Same: PreferredInput = 0 Same: ProgramId = fp.bbc.co.uk/m/tv8z Same: RecGroup = Default Same: RecPriority = 2 Same: RecProfile = Default Change *** SearchType = None to: Manual Same: Season = 0 Same: SeriesId = fp.bbc.co.uk/m-qv3c Change *** StartOffset = 2 to: 1 Change *** StartTime = 2023-02-02T17:15:00Z to: 2023-02-02T17:37:00Z New: *** Station = BBC ONE Lon Same: StorageGroup = Default Same: SubTitle = Change *** Title = Pointless to: Manual Same: Transcoder = 0 Change *** Type = Not Recording to: Record One
If I omit the change to Searchtype it triggers a recording but it has the status of 'Recording one +2 later showing' so does not record.
What settings might be wrong?
