Advanced programming

Post by Ives » Sat Dec 28, 2019 3:27 am

Hello,
In the application, is it possible to program a TV program by indicating only the number of the TV channel and the name of the program to record it each time it is broadcast?

Not quite. Within the normal HDHomeRun app itself, it won't show a channel-specific option. It is possible to do this using the HDHomeRun Kodi add-on, and then you can do a series recording of a show on a specific channel. However, it will still do it based on the ID of the series, rather than a name match, and the duplicate preventing will only record episodes/entries that have not been previously recorded, so it won't record "each time".

Thanks for the information.
It is unfortunate that this function does not exist with this type of device.
It exists at a NAS manufacturer http://en.ve-hotech.com/index.php?optio ... &Itemid=54(Smart Record)

The feature is coming to the HDHomeRun app in the future.

I would therefore have to wait for this functionality which could justify the fairly high cost of the annual subscription to the program guide.
Do you have the approximate date of arrival of this feature?
