Don't inspected C series PVR but It looks possible and relatively easy to do that. If you familiar with IDA and low level programming. :)

To take this a step further, can there be a way to program PVR to record remotely?
To explain: I have a c650 and I have a NAS that I record to using PVR Unencrypted using SamyGO.
Sometime when I am away I would like to record a program.
My idea is to do the following:

1) Set up the system to wake up regularly, (maybe the regular check of firmware updates could be utilized)
2) When it wakes up the system could check for a file on the nfs, with scheduled recording information and schedule recording if file is found.
3) So I would just need an app to place a file on the NFS with info on what to record.

Can this be done?

I am looking for this feature too. Sometimes my TV wakes up automatically in standby and I have access to the WebIF.

When I program my recordings manually, the recordings fail because the start times are not the same as on the EPG....

what I would love to VPN into my NAS and have it set the TV to record channel x from time a to b, either through IR, or using the fact that the TV wakes up at prescheduled intervals.

the tv powers semi-on 2hrs after normal power off (time setting in advanced sm for otn-updates)

i remember someone here investigated that the tv creates some kind of flag-file for scheduled recordings, and i think start, end-time and channel were written in there
//UE40C6500 @ T-VALDEUC 3011 // rooted manual HotelMode style // PVR to NFS via 18MB on-the-fly sparse XFS //
FYI: you can close your ssh session with SamyGO with

Code: Select all

If you can't fix it using dvct tape, you are not using enough dvct tape.

If this happens every two hours, it sounds like there could be some code injected there to read an external file, say, from a NAS and schedule the recording based on the contents. But I don't have the knowledge to do the programming. It would be a function I would be willing to pay for...
