Can we export Tasks Lists to Avoid Scheduling Conflicts?

Post by themusj » Mon Jan 06, 2020 6:58 pm

I know there were some scripts on this at one time, but they do not appear to be working. I am REALLY hoping someday SD will add the scheduling conflict solution to their DVR product.

Until then, IF can export the tasks {particularly movies and one-off TV episodes} I can at least compare it to a schedule I have of my routine TV shows I am recording; hence manually moving recordings around to avoid conflicts.

It might be possible to do something with the DVR API: https://info.hdhomerun.com/info/dvr_api

I just realized there is no scheduling conflict with the DVR. Man this software is taking forever to get up to speed. Focusing on the wrong things if you ask me.

The software does handle scheduling conflicts. The software will allow recording tasks to have different priorities in the event of a conflict, and it will automatically try to record the missed task/episode the next time that episode airs. The only thing the app doesn't do at the moment is warn about future conflicts, and that is something that is being looked at.

Having a Task view by date would be helpful in manually avoiding schedule conflicts. This was a standard view in WMC.
