[vdr] Disabling repetive timers temporary
The "Stop recording on primary display" is of great help
for those poor "only 2 cards"-guys like me.
(The text is a little iretating, One who don't know the full story
may read: stop the entrire recording.
Maybe "release primary display from recording" is better?
But that's not the problem, of cause. :-) )
Often i am in the situation, that VDR is recording timed garbage..
or that the screen is unnessary locked, because the transmisson
is already over, but the timer is recording the "time margin"
(and all cards are in use...)
How can i stop a timer recording - for this day?
Currently i do:
find the active timer (that's easy ,-))
find the garbage recording (that's not so easy, if not sorted by file day)
Remember till next day, that i have
to reactivate the timer. (That is the -biggest- problem, because i think:
That's a job a computer can do much better than man)
find the disabled timer(s) (What requires a lot of scrolling)
Is there no easier way?
On my old analog VCR i just pressed "stop" for a longer time
and did an "index rewind".
Currently there seems no (easy) way to implement it, because
timers seems to hold only a "date" ("13") -or- a "day" ("M-----"),
not both? and too: there seems no way to "set/edit" a date
on a repetive timer.
The old analog had the feature:
"record weekly, starting when the day is the 3rd of month"
(Some can be programmed
"Weekly starting with the 3rd of November")
That would too solve the problem to "temporary" disable
a timer: just set the date to tomorrow.
And would allow programming -regular transmissions-
one Month/one Year ahead.
The "0" feature in timer is a nice gimmik but
hard to use :-)
Would'nt it be easier/powsible/usefull if after selecting
"week days" ("MTWTFSS") in timer the keys 1..7 give
the Weekdays (M=1,Tu=2 etc)
Pressing key 1..7 toggles the nth postition on the "MTWTFSS" bar.
Pressing "2" gives
Pressing "3" gives
Maybe "cursor right" can be used to extend the sequence
list to 14/21/28 days... (and select the next "7")
Maybe the "0" can then be used to open a way to enter a date?
