You will need a re-tune to get the new Hi-Def. channels in 10 days time
Only that the backup is stored in flash (with a view to eliminating the extra reboot in a future update) so writing to flash that often may not be a great idea. The backup file could be moved to disk though.Is there any reason /mod/sbin/autoschedule shouldn't be added as a cron job, to run say every 10 minutes?
Ooops, Yes 10th December for BBC-B Mux i.e. BBC Three HD, CBBC HD etc, although I still have my doubts about the new ARQ-C Mux starting on the same day, so you may have to wait a little longer for Cbeebies HD, BBD Four HD, BBC News HD, Aljazera HD, Channel 4+1 HD and 4seven HD, Crystal Palace Transmitter possibly10 days? do you mean 10th December?
OK, how about only rewriting it in flash if it's changed? The extra reboot doesn't really bother me though...Only that the backup is stored in flash (with a view to eliminating the extra reboot in a future update) so writing to flash that often may not be a great idea.

I'm surprised a mind of your calibre being caught out by that. (No, I'm not being sarcastic or anything else.)Had to restore from the daily auto-backup, but it wasn't up to date as changes had been made during the day
Yes, I know. Lack of time, early morning flight the next day, shortcuts taken and curses uttered. All the things you shouldn't do, I did.I'm surprised a mind of your calibre being caught out by that. (No, I'm not being sarcastic or anything else.)
You are of course absolutely correct. I should know better and have learnt the lesson the hard way. Familiarity breeds contempt as well. Fatal.I always do a manual backup before a retune for exactly that reason, even if I don't think it will have changed. I treat any automatic backup (anywhere, not just on the HDR) purely as a backstop for the unexpected, like the box doing a self-reset.
I thought auto-schedule-restore immediately rebooted the box if it detected an empty schedule on boot and thus restored it? I can't see any harm in it doing that, the box has just booted after all.You still need a reboot somehow after the auto-tune and before your next recording.
I've been speculating how an auto-tune might be detected. Of course the opportunities for testing are rather limited...
