Description

  • Auto-set a 'watched' flag on recordings when exiting within 10 minutes of the programme endtime.
  • Add/Remove? the flag through the recording menu in watch recordings.
  • Display the flag in Watch Recordings and Mythweb

Will eventually be used by auto-expire to delete watched recordings before unwatched ones and schedule unwatched recordings for re-recording.

I'm not sure that 5 minutes from the end is a good switch for 'watched' here in Aus. It might work if it took the soft-padding into account - i.e. 5 minutes from the scheduled end of the program is 'watched', not 5 minutes from the end of the recording. On my box, the recordings end 20 minutes after the scheduled end of the program.

Perhaps doing a percentage based amount as opposed to a static time frame. Either something to the effect of it knowing/monitoring that you watched 90% of the show OR that you exited the show with 10% left.

(In [11138]) Refs #2320

Adds a new 'watched' flag for recordings. It can be manually set or optionally done automatically.

Optionally allow autoexpire to use this new flag to new watched recordings in preference to unwatched ones.

Optionally prevent autoexpired watched recordings from being re-recorded.

Defaults of the new settings maintain current behaviour.

If you are using a custom theme you will need to upgrade it to work with the new icon on the Watched Recordings page. Custom OSDs may break and cause myth to hang, unless updated to include a fifth textarea in the basedialog container.

I'm glad that this feature will be in the next mythtv version! When over 25 different episodes of Seinfeld are aired each week, it would be nice to know which ones I have watched already at a glance!
