Displaying real recording intervals in job scheduler

Postby poutnikl » Sat Jan 24, 2015 9:30 am

Job scheduler should display real scheduled recording intervals, aside of nominal EPG schedule of a title to be recorded.

It has 2 scenarios:

1/ Used leading/trailing time,
to be sure the whole program fits the schedule in case of time shift.

2/ Common joined recording time for 2+ adjacent broadcasts of the same station,
to be sure the programs do not split across 2 adjacent normal recording, in case of time shift.

Especially the 2nd case may easily confuse user pretending there are no overlapping schedules.
As the recording can easily last 1-2 hours longer than the user may think, looking at scheduler.

Yes, but rather START time - STOP time. BTW time info is there displayed in rather uneasy to review form. Better to shine than being shy.

I use such joined recordings very often, as real broadcast interval often slides off the EPG schedule.

About 75 % of my recordings comes from 1 documentary channel,
About 20 % from the other documentary channel, and rest from various movies channels.
So for my case, subsequent recording from the same channel are very frequent.

I use usually 10 min ending time padding for single recording,
as well for joined recording for consequent programs.

With 5 or less min padding single records have often cut out end.
For normal adjacent recordings such end often overflows into following one, and part may be lost.

Just yesterday I recorded 2 such recordings, each with even 3 titles inside.
