For The Record

Posted on Saturday, May 30 2009 @ 18:41:54 CEST by

For The Record is an advanced rule-based scheduling system to record your favorite TV programs in a very intelligent way. It has full support for running as a service with multiple clients (see example setup diagrams below). Access to the system is available ranging from a typical Windows application over plugins for living-room Media playback software to internet Web Access to give you the maximum possible reach. Because the scheduling system is rule-based it offers unparalleled power to record exactly what you want.

  • Core: radio channels, radio channel groups and radio schedules are now supported (note: major API change!).
  • Core: added teletext support for TV channels.
  • Core: automatic creation of thumbnails for your recordings (.thmb files).
  • Core: added optional channel broadcast time (start/stop) which makes sure pre/post-recording doesn't use time when the channel is not available (for example BBC which starts to transmit at 20:00).

  • Core: when recorder/tuners are initialized during startup any initial failures will not be logged until after the retries.
  • Core: fixed MySQL create script for Unix-based MySQL systems.
  • IM-Bot: added a bunch of new commands: cancel <program-number>, delete schedule <program-number>, record <program-number> { once | daily | weekly | workingdays | weekends | anytime } [ new | all ], search guide <text>, search result <title-number>, show channels <group>, show groups, show guide <channel> [day-number], uncancel <program-number>.
