    1.3.3.1 does not work with SVN releases.



    But I will release binaries on our forum soon that do work with the SVN of a few days ago.

    Looking forward to this, I only installed FTR for the first time yesterday and was upset to discover it didn't work with my SVN version of MP.

    I uploaded binaries for the latest SVN version here: SVN 21688 plugins.

    Just let me know if there are any issues with these, I did some preliminary testing and all seemed to be working fine.

    Questions

    Will there be support for XMBC or MediaPortal 2 in the future versions of ForTheRecord? Best HTPC combination at the moment would be XMBC + MP TvServer + ForTheRecord. Let's see if MediaPortal2 will make me to change my mind.

    By the way: scheduled recordings work 100% fine with ForTheRecord, many recordings, zero failures. First time after VHS :) PowerScheduler+client in MediaPortal doesn't always wake up the PC for recording, or it shuts down before the recording starts. Also I don't like the way PowerScheduler works: it tries to stand by the PC, and doesn't start up if you standby by windows or MCE remote. Usually also PowerScheduler puts the computer to sleep even if you are for example writing something. With ForTheRecord it's much better: no "automatic" standby, you can standby manually by remote, and the PC will surely wake up for recording. Also in MediaPortal the wake up for recording should happen always (like in ForTheRecord) - no matter how the computer has been put to standby: by idle time, by remote control, by MP selection "sleep", by windows selection "sleep", or by putting the computer to sleep by pressing sleep button in the PC. I will use ForTheRecord until MediaPortal has a scheduler working the same way.

    Thanks for a good software, hopefully the development will go on. Thanks also to MediaPortal developers: 3-4 years using happily MediaPortal.

    PS: In the management console shedules view, please add columns "channel name" and "start time" visible :)

    Thanks to For The Record's service oriented architecture it's quite doable to make clients for other media software.

    I'm not sure what XMBC uses at its heart, but For The Record's services can be reached over low-level .NET net.tcp (pure WCF), but also using the industry-standard http: XML web services protocol. So it's extremely flexible in that respect.

    Having said that, time is always an issue. So you're hoping we'll make an XBMC plugin, and we're in turn hoping someone from the XBMC community might be interested in and enthousiastic about writing a playback plugin for For The Record :)

    It goes without saying a MediaPortal 2 client is just as doable and we will certainly look at that closer once MP2 progresses a bit further.

    Thank you for all the praise! :D

    Not sure what you mean here: a schedule doesn't actually have a channel or start time, it's the rules within that define zero or more channels, and optionally an around time.

    ForTheRecord is now supported by the latest version of the BleazleWide skin :)

    I'm loving 4TR so far - I was able to schedule a programme to record from my laptop last night while my wife watched recorded TV on the HTPC :) I have a couple of questions though...

    I meant the mini guide as shown in the attached pic - is there one like that?

    I prefer the way MediaPortal shows which programmes are set to record in the guide with a red bar now. Is it possible for me to change this through the skin or is it (as I suspect) something that has to be done by the 4TR plugin? If this is the case do you have any plans to change to this?

    When you click "Stop" during live TV playback in the MP TV Plugin you're asked if you really want to stop - is this coming to 4TR?

    A lot of people ask if there will ever be the ability in MP to be able to click record after you've been watching a programme for say 5 minutes and have it record from when you started watching it (which of course you can't) - what about 4TR - is this coming? :)

    None of these things are "deal breakers" for me, just things I would like to see - I think ForTheRecord is great! :D

    Cheers

    Dave

    Hi Bleazle

    That's limited by the TV service you use to record with, as TVServer does not currently support this, then the answer is no to backward recording the timeshift buffer.
