Re: Record TV over USB

Post by openikev2 » Sat Sep 03, 2011 7:31 pm


I was thinking yesterday about the scheduled recording. It seems to be pretty difficult to make it properly, using internal timers, etc. But we could provide a very basic functionality by integrating the PVR/PVR+ with the RemoteControl extension. By doing this, it shouldn't be difficult to launch a thread/process that waits for X seconds/minutes/hours before sending a "press RECORD key" to the RemoteControl server and, thus, starts recording. It could even wait for another Y seconds/minutes/hours and then send "press STOP key". It could be more like a macro than a functionality, but still could work.

Something similar is what I'm doing in my home, but in my case, the key events are sent from a different computer to the TV.

What do you think?

It (most likely) is; I think we only need to flip PVR_EN bits in PID table entries for pause/resume. But transitions between paused-resumed parts of the final recording will not be smooth (unless TS pausing/resuming is done exactly on I-frame/key-frame boundaries).
Probably your idea will work. Of course, there is a fear MPEG stream will be broken in the place where it was cut, but maybe it could be repaired by TS Doctor later, or... by postprocessing thread run after recording is stopped (I'm not quite sure it would be good idea because of high TV's resources usage for such task).

Anyways, I'm developing PVR+ 1.5 and need help for good translations of new message text. It will be displayed when PIP is going to be hidden.
In English it could look like "HIDING PIP...", in Polish - "UKRYCIE PIP...". I need translations for German, French and Czech languages. English (if you have a better proposal), too.
Second text to be localized is setup menu item for this feature. It writes "Hide PIP by EXIT key : On/Off" (because EXIT button will be used to hide PIP window). In Polish: "Wy?. PIP klawiszem EXIT". Note, that these messages cannot be too long. Of course, I have prepared Czech, French and German translations (using Google ;) ) but your proposals are welcome.

BTW, I hid PIP window yesterday to watch PL-DE football (soccer) match with better video quality from external satellite decoder and sound from local cable network. Fortunately, my satellite decoder has timeshift option so I could synchronize both sources.

P.S. @openikev2: No support for scheduled recording in PVR+ 1.5 is planned. Sorry. Maybe later. Until then, you may use your idea of sending remote control codes via LAN/WAN to start/stop recording.

Is it possible to set a network path in PVR+, where the records are stored? If I start SamyGO Extensions, in PVR+ menu I can just choose SamyGo Virt. USB, but recording to this doesn?t work.

PVR+ 1.5 uses statvfs() function to check free space on target drive. Probably the driver you're using returns wrong values to this function. I don't know how to fix it, but in the next version of PVR+ you will find an option in setup menu that will allow you to disable free space checking. Stay tuned.

@Deni: Not much, but maybe this new option mentioned above requires a review:

Code: Select all

EN: 225=Low space test ---------> On / Off
DE: 225=Speicherplatz Test
FR: 225=Test de faible espace
CZ: 225=Test voln?ho m?sta
PL: 225=Test wolnego miejsca

Is here full script you use for autoload? If yes, then you`re missing the

Code: Select all

at the top of the script.

Further possible problems:
didn`t chmod script to 755
you haven`t used right text editor for creating such script (must not contain ^M at the end of the row...)
