    and that mediaportal is able to repair its self automatically if the schedule is set further into the furture
    There's no "repair" function, so this is not possible.

    I think it's entirely possible that sometimes the act of creating a schedule with the KODI plugin breaks the scheduler... and sometimes it doesn't.
    The challenge is to understand the difference between the two scenarios. Is it something to do with the schedule type, the program that's being recorded... (the list goes on)? For that, more log files would be needed. Ideally log files that show TV Server startup right through to the start of the problem.

    and that KODI is tricking mediaportal so it can't doesn't realise when the date is the 2nd of the the month the first of the month has already past.
    I don't understand this comment at all.

    I might create a Kodi schedule and install the media portal GUI to create a schedule and see what the difference is in the database. if I (from mediaportal) select to record a program that is already partway through, is there any signal to start immediately or it just gets written to the database and then picked up from there the same as any other schedule? Just wondering is there could be an extra signal that Kodi is missing but just writing to the DB seems to make more sense.

    There's a signal to say that "the schedule list has changed".

    what is that signal, is there some way I can manually raise it and see if it does anything? probably more something the plugin developer should be doing but if I can find a workaround it still helps me a bit (and could show them the issue if that's it). is all this sort of stuff documented somewhere, what each column in the DB tables are for, what is required to schedule a recording from a developer point of view etc

    No, not unless you create code to trigger it.

    Yes, exactly.

    No. Plugin developers are expected to have a bit of common sense and use our TV plugin as an example if necessary.

    I do write code and were hoping to get some info on that one point (the change event) rather than having to download and look through the code, but if that's what i have to do.

    Looks like I found a workaround and it looks like it may be related to that signal potentially being missing. If I try to record the current program it does not start, if I then edit that schedule (even if I change nothing) it then starts. I'll look towards the MP plugin for Kodi

    Thank you for performing this test, and confirming @joecrow 's suspicion as to the cause of the problem. In principle the same problem exists with other EPG sources, such as the broadcast EPG that I use with DVB-T/T2. When a programme first appears in the EPG (7 days ahead of its broadcast time), some programmes have a generic...

    Ok, the importer also remembers the queue of items that are still needed to be processed in settings file. If there is something stuck, it will try again on next server start and probably stuck again. But removing the media source also removes the associated queue. The server's TV plugin automatically creates the media sources for...
