Episode names
Hi,

I am recording a film, and I see that its name is "29800_20180401190500.ts".

How can I get more comprehensive names ? I am only interested in the name of
the film.

If you're looking for a program/script solution, then try the Services API. This
example is done from the command line:

curl --silent --header Accept:application/json yourBackend:6544/Dvr/GetRecorded?Chanid=29800\&StartTime=2018-04-01T19:05:00|sed "s/\",
\"/\n/g"|grep "^Title"

Remove the trailing |grep... to see everything available. You can do it from any browser
for a prettier display. I prefer Python to parse the data.

The Python Bindings have getCurrentRecording(recorder) available.

Hi,

I try to use mythlink.pl. I did:

/usr/share/doc/mythtv-backend/contrib/user_jobs/mythlink.pl --link ~/.../
symlinks

Then

/usr/share/doc/mythtv-backend/contrib/user_jobs/mythlink.pl --link ~/.../
symlinks --format '%T'

I only want to see the episode title.

Seems not to be correct:

Afterwards to test, I recorded an episode, the filename is
5914_20180404083600.ts, and ~/.../symlinks/ is empty.

How to use mythlink.pl ?

I use Debian Sid.

Bye

Klaus

I tried it again, and I got an error message about permission to the ~/.../
symlinks/ directory.

I modified permissions and now it works, great !
