    Hi folks,

    here is the first version of my new plugin (or maybe we'll have to say extension) for Media Portal. Since I'm not familliar with c-programmning yet, I thought about other ways to expand Media Portal's features. So I started to code a little web-frontend to control your recordings over the internet or in a local network.

    At the moment you have the possibillity to view your scheduled recordings, change or delete them and to add manual recordings by entering channel, starting time and ending time. In the future I want to integrate the epg that you can see the tv-program and select shows to be recorded from there.

    As mentioned above this is a very early version. So please don't look on the layout, code or language ;-) I just wanted to test what I can do and get some feedback if you like it and if it's worth continuing developement. So please post your opinion.

    Download the .zip-file here!

    Thanks,
    Maschine

    And a quick installation and configuration guide:

    Requirements:
    * A running webserver
    * supporting PHP
    * and "SQLITE".
    * Media Portal ;-)
    Note: If you don't have a webserver yet, have a look at http://www.apachefriends.org. They offer an all-inclusive package including everything needed.

    Installation:
    * Copy all files to a folder in your "htdocs"-directory.
    * Copy your channel icons "from mediaportal/thumbs" to the "thumbs" subdirectory.
    Note: The icon-files have to be named lowercase (like "ard.png") to work properly.

    Configuration:
    * Open "data.inc" with your favourite ASCII-Editor and change the database path to your needs.
    * You can also change the path to your icons here.

    yes, seems like a great idea!

    I saw something similar here ( http://www.dvarchive.org/ ) and was wondering how it could be ported/converted to somehting a little more generic for MediaPortal / BDA usage.

    Going off topic with BDA, I have some source for a specific DVB-T card which is doing some WDM -> BDA driver conversion.. would this be of any use / interest to the programmers for MediaPortal? If so, please PM me and we'll need to work out FTP / web hosting for it (its about 70 odd megs in size).

    Suggestion

    I suggest that you try to use DVB Webscheduler (see http://dvb-ws.sourceforge.net (website) http://sourceforge.net/projects/dvb-ws/ (project page)) instead of needing a webserver installed.

    It already supports one DVB card (TwinHan) without BDA drivers and supports any card's with BDA drivers.

    As it is now fully open source, maybe you could add ATSC support and add your Media Portal enhancements.

    Note: even though I am listed on the Admin/Developers list of the project (as kjwebb), I am only the web admin.

    New Version

    Hi everybody,

    there is a new version (Beta 1) of the webscheduler. The epg is now integrated and you can select your recordings directly from the epg data.

    Grab the new version here.

    I'm looking forward to your feedback!!!

    Hi all,

    I did some work on the project again. Some new features were added and you can right now:
    -browse your epg data
    -schedule recordings from there
    -search the epg
    -one-click to "today at 20:15"
    -schedule manual recordings
    -edit and delete recordings.

    I think this version is quite stable right now and does his job changing the database very well! There is just one problem left right now:
    MP does not notice the changes in the database. So this whole thing does NOT work right now. Frodo has it on his todo-list, but it seems that other things are more important for him right now...

    Some new screenshots (1024*X, .png, ~130kb each):

    I hope you like it and maybe Frodo does not loose this out of focus ;-)

    P.S.: If someone is interested in the project, I could upload the latest version...
