Set recording channel

Post by Deihmos » Mon Apr 22, 2019 8:54 am

I have a series that I record that airs on 2 channels and 1 is DRM. I want to record the series from 1 channel but the SD app does not have an option to record from a single channel. I use use the unofficial kodi app to set recordings and it can do what I need but how do you do it with the official SD app?

You don't... setting a ChannelOnly (series) rule requires a 3rd party tool (app).

There are things that can "help" in the official app.
On most platforms when one does a one off recording it sets both ChannelOnly and DateTimeOnly (there are a couple of platforms I have seen it only set DateTime but can't remember which ones) The problem with this is that you would manually need to select every episode you want to record.

If the shows are on at the same time, you could mark the non-drm channel as a favorite then it would prefer recording from it but this does nothing if the airings are on at different times.
