Wrong behavior of mythbackend when overrecording is enabled and consecutive shows occurs

Reported by: vodicka.petr@… Owned by: Isaac Richards
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: MythTV - Recording Version: 0.21
Severity: medium Keywords: overrecording consecutive
Cc: vodicka.petr@… Ticket locked: no


When 2 consecutive shows (one immediately after another) are scheduled and overrecording is enabled (for example 5min before and 10min after show), recording of first show is stopped on time (10 minutes earlier than it should) and immediately recording of the second show is started (5 minutes later). I understand, that this behavior could be ok if one tuner is present...

But if 2 tuners are available, mythbackend should record first show with 10 minutes overtime and second show should be recorded with 5 minutes before (15 minutes are recorded both). I know, it is using more disc space, but user wanted this, because he enabled overrecording, so mythbackend should satisfy his wish. Current behavior of mythbackend force me to reconstruct recordings, because shows are not on time, so end of one show is located in latter recording.

This behavior could be made even if only one tuner is present, but it would be necessary to record one source to two recordings in overlapping time. And this change could be hard to make.

Recordpreroll and recordovertime are not 'hard' padding as you want. If you want the above behavior, you need to create each recording rule with the required padding.
