#6267 closed defect (worksforme)

Settings.DefaultStartOffset is stored negated

Reported by: andreas@… Owned by: Isaac Richards
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: MythTV - General Version: 0.21-fixes
Severity: medium Keywords: default start offset recording
Cc: Ticket locked: no


When i use the settings to start all recordings 5 Minutes earlier by default i set this to 300 seconds, as the helptext states this are the seconds the recording will start earlier (no negative possible).

But it results in a recording starting 5 minutes later, because it ist stored in the database table as -5.

I corrected that in the table to a 5 an now all recordings start 5 minutes earlier by default. That is, what should be done by Mythtv.

This works for me as intended with trunk.

The RecordPreRoll? setting and database entry was originally intended to allow "slow to start" recorders to start before a recording commenced. It should not be considered as a replacement for proper recording schedule setup.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
