I have updated the scripts to be used with kaadray's modified avcbrowser. Here is the link to the zip file.http://mac_hdtv_timer.home.comcast.net/1394Recorder.zip
Scheduled timeshifting works with iCal as before. You may want to use Watson's TV Guide plug-in to expedite the process with iCal.
I use three alarm files in iCal for a timeshifting event:
Stop and Quit at 2 Minutes Before
Record at 1 Minute Before
Stop and Quit at (duration of program in minutes) Minutes After
The scripts are simplified due to kaadray's work and are an interim solution. There are scripts for the Moto 6200, SA 3250, SA 4200, Samsung T165 and MIT MDR 200.
The basic scripts are:
Record and View
Stop and Quit
The Moto 6200 scripts also include:
Record and View CN8
These are templates for other channels, though they will work for channel 8 "out of the box." The idea is that you can customize your Record, and Record and View, scripts for as many specific channels as you see fit. It is just a simple matter of replacing the 8 with a number of your choosing and then store the modified script with an appropriately descriptive name using "Save As."
Record and View script lets you see what you are recording on a 15 second delay using VLC. To use this script, you will have to edit the script for the path. The script has an example path "MOBILE HD3A
VHS" and to keep things simple, keep the path limited to just one folder. The View of the Finder window for the "DVHS" folder must be set as Column!!! Yes, this path must be the same path set in kaadray's modified avcbrowser. My example is for an external hard drive. For an internal hard drive example, you could have "Macintosh HD
VHS" and again this would have to be the same path set in kaadray's modified avcbrowser. Note the path only has one folder in both examples!!! Also, if you have not done so already, you would need to associate the .m2t files with VLC.
Be sure to have kaadray's modified avcbrowser in your Applications folder. Be sure to remove the original avcbrowser from the Applications folder. The scripts for your set top box are to be saved in folder called "VirtualDVHS" in the path "Macintosh HD:Library:Scripts" and you may have to create this folder if it has not been set up already. Be sure to archive the older VirtualDVHS/AVCBrowser scripts outside this path.
