delete + rerecord

Post by misterhaan » Fri Dec 02, 2016 8:22 pm

i'm looking through the services api documentation and want to use /Dvr/DeleteRecording, but i was hoping for an option to attempt to rerecord in case the broadcast was interrupted or there was bad quality due to weather, etc. via mythweb on the recorded programs page, there’s a delete button and a delete + rerecord button. assuming /Dvr/DeleteRecording has the same effect as mythweb’s delete, is there a way to get the delete + rerecord effect using the api?

There is an AllowRerecord parameter.
If you're looking at the wiki page, be aware that it's out of date/inaccurate.
The best documentation reference is your own backend
[url]http://<backend_ip>:6544/Dvr/wsdl[/url]
aka
WebFrontend ([url]http://<backend_ip>:6544[/url])
then menus API/WDSL Links/DVR Service

thanks! i was looking at the wiki, and i’m a little glad to hear it’s out of date since it made it look like rerecord wasn’t a possibility. i didn’t think to look at wsdl since i’m not using soap — i like the idea of getting my info from the actual implementation i’m working with. my backend was running 0.27 so i had to update to 0.28 to get AllowRerecord.
