EPG start/end times "overwrite" manual changes

Added by Felicia Schneezehn over 3 years ago

If I schedule a recording of a program via the EPG tab and later change it to a later start time and earlier end time (as I want only the middle of a program) the manual change is ignored and it is recorded until the end time of the program in the EPG.

The change is even written to the corresponding log file in 'dvr/log/' but nevertheless ignored.

If I stop tvheadend and restart it, both start and end time are changed to the times of that program in the EPG. The log says:
dvr: Updated Timer (os)

I have set 'EITp/f (Event Information Table present/following)' to 'deactivated' both for channels as well as DVR profiles.

If I create a recording manually in the DVR tab, everything works without problems (but the program info of that time is not in the Matroska file in that case.)

My system is tvheadend 4.1-2332 on Raspi 1 with OSMC (small Debian version)

Thanks for any help in advance!

I too tried, and failed, to find a work around for this - as you noted, the subsequent restart causes an overwrite of the manual changes made with the EPG start/stop times.

So it's a bug and not my special configuration.

I could give you a hint if you have your scenario several times, like with a series: Just create an extra profile that adds a post padding of 1 hour (or what the time of the 2. part is). At least for me the padding is correctly considered.

Could you add my description to your bug report? I think it has the same cause. I guess I can't modify it. Or should I add it as a comment?

A good idea about series. However, most of my problem are with films, and they are too variable in length to use a preset. Thanks for the thought, though :)

If I was you, I would add a comment to the issue ...
