Without the ability to set things like "Record weekly in this timeslot" or to override MythTVs automatic conflict resolution, I'm not sure I could replace mythfrontend, which is something I very much want to do, for mythfrontend can't be as pretty as XBMC is.
At the minimum, a program guide, list of upcoming recordings, and scheduling options for each recording would cover my use-case. Not sure how others feel.
Hi yashka, Your use-case sounds like the basic requirements of every user, so you can count them as accepted as feature suggestions :-) Multiple recording types and editing of existing scheduled recordings is a primary target of this project, as otherwise user's will need to resort to other frontends/access methods for day to day use of their pvr app = something we want to avoid here.
libcmyth - (which will form the basis of the test case plugin) gives access to the full list of scheduled recordings and full control over them. see here http://www.mvpmc.org/builds/doxygen/prog...tml#l00302
. Whether or not we can give full access to every type of recording schedule (from any application, not just mythTV) through XBMC depends on the methods which we use to fill a dialog window with GUI controls; the dialogue that pops up from the TV guide or list of scheduled recordings when you hit select on it.
(any future technical discussion should be in a separate thread in the development forums)
