Free Time Finder?

Post by pvrmine » Sun Aug 30, 2020 5:20 pm

Has anyone already coded a tool to find free times in the overall recording schedule?

I archive a lot of shows, and don't have very many free time slots where I can shut down the master backend to perform maintenance.

This will show recording time slots over the available program guide data, which I figure is a potential starting point:

mythbackend --printsched|grep ".*_. K"|sed -e"s/^.*_. K.......//"|grep ".. ..:..-..:.. \."|awk '{print $1,$2}'

Example output:

30 11:57-13:00
30 11:57-12:30
30 12:30-13:00
30 13:00-14:00
30 14:00-15:00
30 15:00-16:00
30 16:00-17:00
30 17:00-18:00
30 18:00-19:00
30 18:00-19:00
