When you add a program through the epg by selecting "record series" the program is set to record on everyday. When you alter the day selection to for example only monday and save it, the program is still recorded on every other day it comes by.


Bug #2446: AutoRec DVR Scheduling Not Respecting FiltersFixedAdam Sutton

I can confirm this.

It looks intentional (the code returns 1 if it is a serieslink recording and the suri matches), but I think it definitely makes sense to allow day, time, etc restrictions. The only thing that might not make sense is the title matching (and maybe channel shouldn't be set at all so you could add it as a restriction - It is currently set to the channel you pick the recording on, but is then totally ignored)

I just removed the return 1 (dvr_autorec.c, line 93) and things then worked as I expected it to.

Maybe, but the concept of series linking is that we just do exactly what the upstream provider tells us to. If they provide garbage data, then TVH will record garbage if you try to use it.

That being said, I'm not completely against the concept of being able to further constrain things even within the context of a series link. But that's a feature request, not a bug.

I put back the filters. I think that users can leave filters empty, so the previous behaviour can be configured. v3.9-2379-ga65f617
