MP2 Product Manager
- May 16, 2008
The reason that I suggested creating a "dummy" new recording from the EPG was so that all of the other recording parameters would be correct. If you set up the dummy recording as you want it, only the programme name needs changing in the xml file.I thought I could skip the step of scheduling an unwanted recording and editing its name and just add new entry to the xml file.
This should work for a repeated recording (often called a "series"). However, if the series is not currently in the EPG, there will be nothing to see in the list of scheduled recordings. Instead, you need to switch the panel to show the list of series recordings (there should be a button somewhere on the panel that you can click to do this, or to bring up a menu with a list of selections).However if I do this and re-import the new entry isn't shown on the TV Server Schedule.
But but but but... the wanted recording is wanted, so I don't want to change that. I want to change an unwanted recording.So you don't have to schedule an unwanted programme: just change the name of a wanted one that's already there!
I didn't expect to see it the list of scheduled recordings in the client, but I did in the list in the TV Server configuration program.However, if the series is not currently in the EPG, there will be nothing to see in the list of scheduled recordings.
My point was that if you change the name of any recording in the xml file, when you reload it you will see that the entry for the original programme is still there as well as that for the new name. I wasn't expecting that, but it does make the process rather easier. I have an entry in the TV Configuration list for a programme titled "Enter Name of Programme Here" so to add a programme to the wish-list I just have to rename it in the xml file and when I reload it I've still got a programme called that for use next time!But but but but... the wanted recording is wanted, so I don't want to change that. I want to change an unwanted recording.
When you import the schedule, "TV Server" merges the entries in the imported file with those already present.My point was that if you change the name of any recording in the xml file, when you reload it you will see that the entry for the original programme is still there as well as that for the new name.
Aha! So not only do I not need to create a dummy entry in the schedule, I don't even need to export the xml and edit it! Things get easier and easier!What this means is that you can keep a import file that contains a single entry, and edit and import that each time you want to schedule a programme that is not present in the EPG.
