#11753 closed Bug Report - General (fixed)

Dvr/AddRecordSchedule does not work

Reported by: robert.mcnamara@… Owned by: David Engel <dengel@…>
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.27
Component: MythTV - Services API - Backend Version: Unspecified
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


The reworked AddRecordSchedule? does not work (and as near as I can tell never has). RecordingRule::isValid is called on the recording rule constructed, but the rule's start and end times and dates are never set. Thus, the duration will always be 0 and isValid will return false. Presumably adding (to Dvr::AddRecordSchedule?):

rule.m_startdate =; rule.m_starttime = recstartts.time();

rule.m_enddate =; rule.m_endtime = recendts.time();

Will cause this to function as expected.

On an slightly related note, It's a serious bummer to have existing API calls reworked like this rather than replaced and the old ones deprecated-- anyone who has written a client against the existing API is in for a rude awakening when .27 is released.

Fix DVR::AddRecordSchedule?() to save the start/end times.

The services API is still very immature and subject to change between MythTV versions. I expect it will remain that way until we begin to use the API ourselves and have a well defined policy and method for providing backward compatibility. In the case of AddRecordSchedule?(), the old version was broken by design and was not something I wanted to keep around.

With the above resolved, AddRecordSchedule? still does not work. It does not set the ChanId? in the recording rule and thus isValid fails because the chanId is invalid.

fix more DVR service issues.

I could have sworn I'd tested this all better, but thinking back, I
think I mainly focused on recurring rules with UpdateRecordSchedule?()
and assumed AddRecordSchedule?() also worked since they are almost
