For some time I have been using WinTV v6, but instead of using the windows scheduler, I wrote my own TV controller (it includes web access to set up recordings and imports data from Digi-Guide). It even powered up the PC when required and shut it down afterwards!
I have two PC's with WinTV-NOVA-T-500 dual recorders and can set up recordings from any PC or my laptop.
To make recordings, I emulated the windows scheduler and it worked exceedingly well.
Today, I installed WinTV v7...
Obviously a lot of things have changed, but I do miss the ability to type in a channel number!
However I obviously need to update my program to control your software.
I can see that you now use a tray application (started at power up) and save some of the recording details in the database, but is it still possible to use the old "shell" technique to start recordings?
Or can you publish a way to do this please?
I must admit I don't like the recordings being left with file names like:
but I see that should change in the next update.
