Add duration to Watch Recordings screen

Post by nocturnalcodehack » Sat Apr 23, 2022 4:45 pm

On the the program details panel where channel, recording date/time and space used is displayed. Would it be possible to add the program duration to the displayed metadata. Would really be nice to see how long a program recording is, when determining if one has time to watch it.

The Mythbuntu theme shows program start time and program end time. The MythCenter-wide does show only the start time but there exists a patch that changes this to show both start time and end time just like Mythbuntu. I can dig this up if you are using MythCenter-wide and are interested in this.
The duration of a recording is not shown anywhere as far as I know.

You could probably add a new text area or add to an existing text area a template that uses either 'lenmins' or 'lentime'.
