Unfortunately not all of the EPG info is saved in the recordings hmt file, the crid and linked indicator are not kept.I have searched and tried but I can't find a way to Auto-Join a split recording.
I believe movie recordings that are interrupted by.. say the news.. are marked with a linked icon. Is there a way in sweeper to target these files and join them?
It has been discussed before https://hummy.tv/forum/threads/split-transmissions-not-correctly-handled-by-humax-scheduler.9620/ but basically you would end up with the equivalent of a manual timed recording which you can set up yourself. You lose any tracking of schedule changes but you also prevent the Humax incorrectly recording repeats of the filmThe only thing I wondered is whether something could change the schedule (before it is recorded) to join the two parts together into a single recording.
Something like schedchk could keep a table of recent linked programmes so that some other tool could identify and join the parts.Unfortunately not all of the EPG info is saved in the recordings hmt file, the crid and linked indicator are not kept.
I can't think of any obvious way of detecting linked recordings and Join is not an action that can be triggered from Sweeper
But the schedule modification method (which results in a "joined" recording) leaves the interjecting material in the middle, which is why /df said:PS: I'm not snipping anything.. just trust the recording schedule and be dammed.
and snipping out the intermission(s)
I'm not sure this is the same thing. Forgive me if I'm wrongBut the schedule modification method (which results in a "joined" recording) leaves the interjecting material in the middle, which is why /df said:
Nobody said it was, but it is another way to skin the cat and has been discussed before.I'm not sure this is the same thing
That's a good idea, I had forgotten NMF offers a join option. It should be possible to automate that through sweeper, if a way can be found to identify the parts which need to be joined.With nicesplice-magic-folders installed
It's not great. But that's where I am with the EPG - press record and go.Here are the approximate timings when recording some instances of the 5 minute breaks (Sony Movie News) from today:
Yes. sweeper rules are easiest if made local to one folder. You can define recursive rules, and apply them to the whole My Video tree, but then it's difficult to filter out just the instances you want it to act on (unless you do want it to act on everything). It's only one instance of sweeper that's actually running, it scans the folder tree for rule sets.It needed sweeper on the source folder AND the //[join]/ folders
Why? Only developers look on Github, if you aim to give normal users the benefit of your experience all you need to do is get the text version of your rules (within the sweeper GUI click the "Text Editor" button), and post them on the forum in a code box. Simples.I might put files up on github
