Just wondering if this could be shown differently (better) in the UI...

At the moment, if you disable a recording event in Upcoming/Current recordings, the recording is flagged as Failed with a status of Time Missed when it inevitably doesn't record (as you've told it not to).

It would be better if it were flagged as Failed/Skipped or Failed/Disabled, something like that - with a more neutral, less angry icon as well - to distinguish it from real failures (e.g. due to disc space, signal quality, a blocked tuner, whatever).

DVR: add new schedule states - completedWarning and completedRerecord, fixes #3196


#1 Updated by Jaroslav Kysela almost 3 years ago

I would propose to add new status "completedWarning", we have these states (mapped to icons) now:


And we may add new status description "Skipped by user request" ?


#2 Updated by Prof Yaffle almost 3 years ago

No objections. So long as it's clearly different from a failure (completedError, I presume) then that meets the requirement as I see it.

There's a separate question then about whether there are any other status flags, or how these map already (e.g. is an aborted recording completedError, completedWarning, recordingError or something else?).
