OSD: "Record Timer starts in 1min."

Postby sn0 » Tue Apr 15, 2014 10:31 pm

Hi SmartDVB Team,

a warning (or two) before a Task is executed would be helpful, because it always happens during watching TV, that the SmartDVB-Scheduler (unexpected for me) zap to an other Channel to Record something. Bad secondary effect is that the Timeshift Data is lost because of the channel change. Even if i quickly change back to the previous watched channel, i miss something from my TV show :(

So an OSD-Message Popup like this would be quite helpful:

Info: Record/Zap Timer starts in 1min
Channel: BBC One HD
Duration: 25min (20:00 - 20:25)

(Buttons:) [hide] [cancel timer once]

The PopUp should hide automatically like the other OSD elements.

I would like to hear your opinion.

I can understand this would be useful. Like you mention, it should automatically hide through some timer to not be intrusive when no user interaction is wanted, desired or possible. I also would opt to make it remote accessible ofcourse, otherwise one would need to get up from the couch possibly.

Added to todo list.

Thanks for the feedback,
