Description

The EPGSearch plugin shows reruns of television shows and allows searching the EPG data. The search settings are stored for later reuse, and can be used as 'search timers'.

The 'search timers', search for broadcasts in the background and add a timer if one matches (similar to VDRAdmin's auto-timers) or simply announce it via OSD.

Once you have created your searches, any programme(s) matching your criteria (Programme title/description; start/end time; channel etc.), it will be recorded. So you can record every episode of a series automatically.

A timer-conflict-check checks in the background for overlapping timers and if one cannot be record it informs the user via OSD. The conflict can then be resolved with an easy to handle OSD menu.

Epgsearch can inform you with an email at timer-updates and/or at timer-conflicts and you can use user defined variables for use in searchtimers and for calling external scripts to influence timer creation.
