This thread is for MYHD_PlayList_Manager (PLM), Record_This (RT) and SerialPort.
The PLM is for updating MYHDs playlist in the registry. It will search for tp (and other extensions) files in specified folders and build/modify the play list in the registry. There are many options that will sort, modify, change, skip the filenames.
The PLM (and RT) have no user interface. They read an ini file that contains the instructions on how to run. The ini file can be built with notepad or some other process. The zip files contain an ini file that has the documentation.
RT is a program that will build the schedules for MYHD cards, Fusion cards/USB boxes, the HDHomerun lan box and the Hauppauge HD PVR on local and remote machines. Again there is no GUI. The ini file tells RT what to record. And it also has many options. It is meant to be a free standing program that you set up to run automatically every day without any operator intervention. The zip file contains an ini file with documentation.
Because it can handle multiple devices it has whats called a "DontCare" feature. The user specifies the programs to be recorded and the cards to use and RT will spread the recordings across the cards to avoid time conflicts. And for those that do not have an internet connection the programming can be entered manually. Or manual entries can be made in addition to the programs captured from the SchedulesDirect xml.
This reservation info comes from SchedulesDirect xml data. Meaning one will have to establish a SchedulesDirect account for a nominal fee.
Help for setting up Schedules Direct is located Here
There are some examples of setting up HDHR two posts after the one about Schedules Direct.
SerialPort is a small command line program that works with Paterson Technology's USB TV Translator. This is a Serial/USB cable that allows the PC to change the channel on a DirecTV box. The command line is serialport channel and optional subchannel: SerialPort 4 360.
RT_Helper is needed when more than one machine in a network has tuner devices that RT is to control. RT sits in one machine (main?) and RT_Helper is put in each other machine that has those tuner devices.
