    New recordings are only displayed after a new manual synchronization. I read somewhere that an automatic synchronization should be installed. Just like deleting individual recordings in MP2.
    So how do I do a manual sync and how to install an automatic one?

    @morpheus_xx I had a go at starting to implement a ResourceProvider and MetadataExtractor to access and import the recordings through the API. It basically works. I pushed to a new branch here.

    There are still a few open points:
    • The TvMosaic IP and port aren't available on the server...yet, so I've just hardcoded some values here for now. When testing you'll obviously need to update those if necessary. Ultimately isn't it probably best if these are stored on the server anyway so each client doesn't have to be configured individually?
    • I set the mime type of the recordings to LiveTvMediaItem.MIME_TYPE_TV_STREAM as a quick and dirty solution to test playback on the client, this uses the live TV stream player as that already had support for playing back from a url. This player expects a live TV stream though so has a few issues but playback basically works
    • Some more metadata can probably be imported, e.g. thumbnails and I'm not sure if I interpreted the times and durations correctly
    • Currently the share has to be added manually in the usual way through Add Media Source, you'll see a new provider there for TvMosaic when selecting what type of share to add which will allow you to add a recordings 'directory', then you'll need to select Video as category. However there doesn't seem to be an easy way to trigger a reimport when a recording gets added or deleted beyond adding some sort of polling...which might mean just adding custom recording screens that access the API directly might be better
    @joecrow it is described earlier in this thread how to deal with recordings. Just in case you missed it.
    There is no automatic import yet if I understood correctly.

    TV Mosaic was already set up as a share and doing a re-import did not bring in the recording also tried removing and re-adding the source and although the import arrow showed up my recording folder remains empty.

    I’ve the same issue, imports do not show recordings though the share is added correctly. In the past this worked. Are you working on a fix?

    @Brownard , you developed the resource provider and MDE, do you have an idea how we could trigger the reimport?

    We could poll the TvMosaic server for known schedules, or recordings, and after changes we could force a reimport. Or is there a better way?

    Some sort of polling is the only way I think, it's just a question of how smart we can make it, e.g. check recordings returned by the API against the database at some regular interval and additionally shortly after a schedule is due to finish (or start if TV Mosaic supports playback of ongoing recordings) to get them in the database as soon as possible.

    Then you didn’t use Nereus Skin in MP2. tMM does a great job in combination with MP2 it’s the best, if you ask me.
