#11055 new Bug Report - General

Starting playback from python script supresses prompt to ask to save bookmark

Component: MythTV - General Version: 0.25.2
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


I'm using 0.25.2, and am working on a python script that uses fe.sendPlay('program...') to start playback of recordings. That aspect of it works fine, however when I then exit the recording (using the remote control, as I normally would), it does not ask if I want to save a bookmark. Instead, it immediately stops playback.

If the thing I start playing from the script is a video, with sendPlay('file...'), it does ask. It's apparently only when the thing is a recording that the prompt is missing.

Another user reports that this problem also exists in 0.26, though I have not confirmed that.

Here's some sample code:

from MythTV import Frontend
fe = Frontend.fromUPNP().next()
fe.sendPlay('program 12432 2005-09-24T02:59:00')
