    Hi all,

    I'm wondering if there is any plugin or built-in functionality to record broadcasts by name, no matter when or on what channel they are.
    In order to achieve that, the EPG would have to be scanned regularly for a user-defined set of names or fractions of names, and all matching broadcasts should be put into the recording timers list so they get recorded when their time has come.
    Sorry if this is a dumb question but I did not find anything close in the plugins yet. The purpose is to record certain movies or episodes of series even if they are not on the EPG at the moment. It is not urgent enough to buy them on media, however, I keep forgetting to regularly search the EPG myself so why not let the machine do the work?



    Regards,
    Joe
