    Daily Recorded time slot stopped

    Hello,

    I set my mythbuntu to manually record a time slot daily. This worked for about 2 weeks. Then it stopped altogether. At first I thought it was because of size but the recordings are set to auto expire plus I am nowhere near to a full drive 1.8 TB (1.6 TB free).

    I noticed if I go back into Recording Schedules and re-save the manually record a daily time slot, it will record again but only show upcoming recordings for about 2 weeks. (IE I just set it before posting this and shows upcoming recordings until Thu Nov 8, 2012)

    How do I set it to continuously record this time slot without stopping or going back to reactive?

    theres only 2 weeks of EPG data is my guess why it only shows 2 weeks of upcoming recordings. I haven't done a manual tv schedule in a long time but are you sure you aren't missing a check box or something that tells it to always record this time slot every day.

    What EXACTLY is your recording rule?

    Re: Daily Recorded time slot stopped

    I have my digital cable box going into PVR-150. My cable box tunes to the correct channel and outputs on channel 3. I have my recording set to channel 3 everyday in the same time period. One thing dannyboy79 did say. There is no EPG data...I have it set to record the same show so I don't have any real need for EPG...is it required to do a daily recording past 2 weeks? Is there a way to have it keep going?

    Why do you have no EPG?

    How does mythtv change the channel on the cable box?

    Re: Daily Recorded time slot stopped

    I only record 1 show...the PBS new hour (kind of like npr for tv). I could actually watch the show online but the most recent shows are not on and I don't like the commercials.

    Anyway the show is on the same time everyday. My cable box has a EPG, I can set it to tune to a certain channel at certain time (I guess this is for a old school vcr). So everyday the cable box is set to tune into correct channel/time.

    I did have a schedule direct account at one time...but I didn't see the need to renew since I would be recording this one show.

    Recording rule
    Record this program in this timeslot every day.
    Recording Profile: Default
    Transcoder:Autodetect
    Recording Group: Default
    Storage Group: Default
    Playback Group: Default
    Recording Priority: 0
    Duplicate Check method:None
    Check for duplicates in:All recordings
    Auto-expire recordings: (check)

    that all looks good, and how long does it make it before this recording schedule is removed?

    OK I see, I think you need a manual rule, rather than a custom rule. You r rule relies on finding that programme in that timeslot every day. If the EPG is not there it fails.

    You can do a manual rule under mythweb, and I am sure the frontend will program one too, but I don't have a frontend near at present.

    Re: Daily Recorded time slot stopped

    that is a manual recording, NOT a custom recording. custom recording uses search terms etc.

    Yea I tried to do a custom record but there is no place for me to select channel or time. With no EPG there is nothing to search for.
