I recently switched from the external scheduler (because tasks suddenly started failing to start, elthough they existed in Tasks folder in Windws) to the internal one and I found several issues: 1. If the tast is set to swith the computer to the standby/hibernation mode, the DVBViewer won't switch itself off (it is running after wakeup). 2. If I change the start time of a recurrent job to a later time (e.g. the TV station starts to broadcast a show an hour later), the DVBViewer will start itself at the original time upon next occurrence of the task (but it starts recording correctly at the set later time, i.e. it runs for an hour and only then starts to record at the new time). Both issues cause problems to me if I use the card with other TV viewing application as well and want to set up a task with it (e.g. I have to use the application shipped with my satellite card (Aver3D R889) for recording scrambled channels, because DVBViewer does not support its CI). 3. (not realted with the internal scheduler, but a general proposal) If a schedule a task, but the hardware is not available when the tasks starts (e.g. because I have disconnected the respective USB tuner), the DVBViewer starts as normally, but, of course, records nothing (zero-byte file) and that when the tasks ends it does not switch itself off. I suggest that in such case it displays the "No hardware available" warning as well. Moreover, it should not be OSD only, but as a separate window like in case of the "Timer shutdown" warning. Thanks.
