    Hello,

    if I manual start a record from live TV, then I get the properties #TV.Record.start, #TV.Record.stop and so on.:
    1. Go to MyTV
    2. Start TV
    3. Switch to Fullscreen
    4. press r
    => I get the properties know: OK


    But I don´t get the properties, if I schedule (Timer) a recording AND don´t watch TV. At scheduling it doesn´t
    matter if I use EPG or not:
    1. Go to MyTV
    2. Go to timer
    3. Schedule a recording in the future
    4. Go to Main
    5. If you see a litte TV-Picture: press STOP
    => At the scheduled time, the Record starts, but I get no Properties

    (If I watch life TV when the scheduled Recording starts, then I get the properties).

    I tried this with
    a) First DVB-S-Card: using for viewing and recording
    Second DVB-S-Card: not using for viewing and recording
    b) First DVB-S-Card: using for viewing and recording
    Second DVB-S-Card: deleted in MP-Configuration
    c) First and second DVB-S-Card: both using for viewing and recording
    but all 'Configurations' have the same behavior.


    I Tried to understand the coding of the related files like RecorderProperties.cs, Recorder.cs, TVCaptureDeviceEx.cs... and so on, but couldn´t find any "mistakes".

    Please take a look at the logs (specialy at recorder.log):
    First Record at 2007-11-08 20:25:21.328125
    Second Record at 2007-11-08 20:55:19.937500

    At both Records you can find the logged Event "[Info.][5]: Recorder: recording state changed". Unfortunality doesn´t RecorderProperties 'export' the properties.

    Maybe the output for the Record-Properties schould implement at the place, where a Card starts or stops a

    Recording (class TVCaptureDevice -> Method StartRecording(...) or StopRecording(...)) and not at class class

    RecorderProperties -> Recorder_OnTvRecordingChanged()?

    By the way: the same behavior with MP 0.2.2.0 - maybe this info helps.




    Thank you for your help!!!!

    Johannes

    Code changed

    I downloaded the sources and completly redesigned one method in the file 'recordproperties.cs', which outputs the properties when a record changed (OnTVRecordingChange). Now it works fine for me - even if I´m recording with two DVB-S - cards.

    This change is very useful for all user of the lcd-plugin by Joe Dalton.

    Tomorrow I try to upload some pix of my LCD (with recording-info´s).

    For now, I will search in WIKI for information to upload my changes.

    Greetings
    Johannes

    Update Changes to MP 0.2.3.0 (Final)

    Yesterday I downloaded 0.2.3.0 (final) and do all changes again for the new (stable) version of MP. I will test my changes for some days and report the results (maybe with some pictures).

    Changes / Bugfixes uploaded as patch

    I just uploaded my bugfix and changes to PropertyManager.cs, PowerScheduler.cs and RecorderProperties.cs (Request-ID: 1842723). This changes based on the sources vom MP 0.2.3.0 final (yes, few day´s after my changes in MP 0.2.3.0 RC3 comes MP 0.2.3.0 final; so I downloaded the sources again and do my changes again).

    With this changes I get the right Recording-Info´s via C.All and LCDHype. Take a look at my picture.
