I am using MP2 and I am trying to figure out how to create a manual schedule for recording TV using MP Client. I can see how I can create a recording based on my Guide listing however, if I want to say record a channel between times A and B regardless of guide, is this this possible?

Thanks in advance!

Is this feature already implemented? If it's easy, perhaps also a feature for coming release.
Basically I'm not somebody who is recording, at least I do not schedule recordings.
But sometimes I see something interesting in TV and just press the Record Button in WMC. As I plan to switch to MP2 by time I would also like to see that.
I already created icons for the Player Controls in TV, so also from design point of view it's easy to add.

Pressing record at any time works in MP2, if I'm not totally confused now.

Yes, this is working since ever.
But you can not schedule a recording with start- time, end- time and channel as it was on old VHS recorders. This is what this topic is about. Afair this was possible in MP1 but I never used it so I'm not sure.

Ok, then just the Record Button is missing in the TV controls. I never know a key combination of MP2. And I have no remote on by development PC :)

I also like the idea, that you can schedule based on variable start and end time.

I am now very confused indeed.

Is it possible to schedule a recording manually in MP2: please answer yes or no.

Cheers

I was just going to add a "Recording Button", but then was thinking, if it really is a good idea.
Placing the button to start a recording is no problem, but it should be a 2-state button, so you know when a press will stop recording.
I can make the button e.g. "blinking" after first click, but since we do not have a "IsRecoding" parameter avaialble, we would never know for sure, if the recording process is really active. "Blinking" would only mean, that the button was pressed and "blinking" will stop, when you press it another time.

Any thoughts about that?
