TitanTV for remote scheduling?

Post by duaneoca » Fri Mar 28, 2014 5:38 am

Folks,

I apologize if I'm bringing up a topic that has been discussed and closed, but I'm interested in the idea of using TitanTV to remotely manage my settings for recordings. Are there reasons (policy or technical) why this isn't a feature in development? I'd be interested in pitching in on development work to make it happen.

Just to be clear, I have no interest in TitanTV as source of program listings.

Cheers,
Duane

Note that that script only handles local scheduling, where your backend is accessible directly over the network. Proper remote scheduling requires that one become a "TitanTV Partner", and periodically poll their SOAP interface. The script linked above was something written quickly upon a user request, however it turned out to be useless as it attempts to marry the record request against MythTV's existing guide data and scheduler, when it turned out the user only wanted it to be able to bypass MythTV's scheduler entirely. Trying to figure out how to become a partner application fell outside my interest at the time.

Thanks for the response. I have sent a note to TitanTV about becoming a partner. We'll see where it goes. If you have any more hints/suggestions/warnings, I'd appreciate them!

Why not just use MythWeb?

If I am at home, I can sit down in front of the computer and add/remove the shows I would like. If I am on the go, I'd have to establish an ssh tunnel to my home machine (which doesn't have a static IP) and then hit a forwarded port to get to the web server. Significantly more painful than pulling up the TitanTV app on my phone.

You could set up a dynamic domain, and open a port for the web server.
