Record_This, I'd had to have this,,,,, toy,,,,, for lack of a better term to play with. It is very limited in that it only handles OTA and MYHD. It reads the XML from Zap2It and makes the schedule entries in MYHD for the programs that are to be recorded. It recognizes reruns or will record all not seen episodes. It also will only record one day ahead. On that there is more in the instructions.
I've been testing and tweaking since Saturday and it seems pretty stable but I'm sure there might be a hole here and there. I do know one thing after seeing it work properly,,,,,,
I have got to get this working on the Fusion card too. If anybody has ideas or has looked into the structure of schedule entries for Fusion. Chris Moore has made a bit of progress in this area and this weekend I'm going to look into how far he got. But we really need DVICO to provide a bit more detail. It would really speed things up. I asked MIT and they returned the structure layout. It had already been somewhat decoded already but having the source made it a piece of cake.
Back to using Record_This,,,,, as I said it uses the xml generated schedule info from a call to xmltv with a string of parameters. I got on the Zap2It website and figured it out. And if I can most anybody can. And given what the program can do, like tonight there is no Bones or House. If MYHD had been set up to record them weekly you'd be getting 2 hours of American Idol. Unless you took the time to tweak the schedule or in fact set op the schedule every night.
I'm posting the ini file, the exe and the bat file that I use to run the PLM, XMLTV and then RT. Hope there aren't too many problems.
I've got some TV watching/catching up to do.
