Description

Note for the theme that I am using yellow means record and white means conflict.

I'm using svn 8734 and am seeing a problem where a show that can't record due to a conflict is still displayed in yellow in the "upcoming recordings". MythWeb doesn't list this show in its upcoming list so the problem appears to be specific to mythfrontend.

The show in question is the Duke vs Virginia Tech basketball game which comes on tonight from 7pm - 9pm EST. I have a power search defined to record all ACC vs ACC basketball games with a priority of -10, and it is setup to record an extra 15 minutes in case the game goes into overtime.

I have three tuners (1 Air2PC HD card and 2 PVR-150s) but at 9pm there are three shows with a higher priority that will record. It seems as if the code that generates the upcoming recordings list isn't checking to see if a show is being padded (the extra 15 minutes in my case) before it displays the title in yellow when it should be displayed in white. If I select the Duke vs Virginia Tech game on the upcoming recordings page it will say that the show will not be recorded due to the 3 shows with higher priotity that start at 9pm.

This unnamed third party theme, not from mythtv.org, must have a bug and certianly a bad design decision to change the meaning of yellow for Conflict. No one at this site maintains such a theme.

The rest of your message is confusing. The color is of no consequence and it is the record status that matters. You don't specify that status or the displayed end time or clearly state your expectations. If endoffset for the rule is 15, then the basketball game is scheduled for 7:00-9:15. There is no code "checking to see if a show is being padded" and making any decision that this time is some how to be treated differently. If there are 3 cards and four shows and nothing can be moved to a later time slot, the lowest will be a confilct marked with a "C" (and I don't care if it's pink).

Do not reopen this ticket to whine. Post questions to the mailing list.
