Automatically extend recordings with a lowest priority grace period

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: Isaac Richards
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.21
Component: mythtv Version: 0.20-fixes
Severity: low Keywords: recording, extension
Cc: Ticket locked: no


EPG data is never 100% accurate so many times you will miss the end of a show in the recording. While there is the option to automatically extend the recording this has the effect of canceling the following recording in a back-to-back recording of the same show.

Why not add a global/recording group grace period of lowest priority? The recording would continue for the grace period or until a recording with higher priority starts.

Examples with a grace period of 5 minutes:

Normal case:

 <--- 45 min ----|-- 5 min -> ..... <--- ....
 Recording 1 (extended)             Recording 2


 <--- 45 min --->|<--- 45 min ----|-- 5 min ->
 Recording 1      Recording 2 (extended)

This Feature is in Mythtv as 'Record past end of show (in minutes)'

The notes on this read 'For the specified category, an attempt will be made to extend the recording by the specified time. It is ignored when two shows have been scheduled without enough time in between.'
