Media Server, Add a timer, response, Feature request


Recommended Posts

When I create a timer with


all works fine but I get no response from the server.

I think it will be fine to get an answer. A failure answer when something is wrong and maybe a timer record if all works fine.

Because when I want to store this timer id where ever it is not easily possible.

The only way I see at this moment is to create the timer with an UUID  title, request a timer list after the creation call, remember the timer id and make a third call to change the title to something useful. And 1 call is better then 3 calls.


And - not so important but helpful is to get api responses in json. Most of javascript and REST apis expecting the json format and somebody must convert it. And I prefer the server do it.

      I noticed several things during my tests that make debugging api calls difficult.
      The returned XML string is often (but not always) incorrect if the EPG entry is not found.
      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?><!-- by DVBViewer Media Server --><epg Ver="1">
      The end tag is missing.
      Here it would be nice (besides the return of a valid XML string) to get an error code included. For example: wrong channelid, epgid not found
      When searching for pdc with a wrong pdc value (in my case 'NOPDC') this filter is completely ignored and the EPG list of the channel is returned. I think also here an error message would be more helpful.
      Many other api calls have no return value at all - e.g. timeredit. Here it would be helpful if the changed timer (or an error code in case of problems) would be returned.

      I have Media Server installed, which acts too strange.
      (1) When I start PC:
      - DVBViewer Media Server in Services is not running,
      - tray icon is grey,
      - TV is working on clients,
      - WEB UI is working.
      (2) When Media Server crashes (happens every day!) and when I start it in Services:
      - DVBViewer Media Server in Services is running,
      - tray icon is blue,
      - TV is not working on clients,
      - WEB UI is not working.
      The only thing I can do to restart Media Server is to restart PC to get case (1)
      I exluded svcdebug.log, because there is not enough space for support.zip here.
      But it looks like

      Hallo zusammen, 
      ich möchte für den DVBViewer und den Media Server plugins schreiben die  (im ersten Schritt Daten im TS-Datenstrom abgreifen, später dann auch manipulieren)
      Gibt es irgendwo ein Projektbeispiel für Visual Studio in c++ oder c?

      Ich konnte leider keines finden, oder war nicht in der Lage einen passenden Suchbegriff zu formulieren.

      Ich habe eine Frage zur Handhabung in einem Spezialfall:
      TELE5 sendet diese Woche zum 25. Jubiläum von Kalkofes Mattscheibe ein 25-Stunden Best-Off, dass ich gern aufzeichnen würde.
      Da die Sendung im EPG in 24 direkt nacheinander folgende Teile gestückelt ist, kann ich die einzeln Sendungen zur Aufnahme auswählen, erhalte dann aber möglicherweise unglücklich gestückelte Dateien, vielleicht sogar mit Lücken? Alternativ kann ich einen Timer manuell erstellen, was bei der Dauere (über mehrere Tage) vielleicht andere Probleme birgt und vielleicht zu einer riesigen, nicht handhabbaren Datei oder gar Abbruch führt.
      Welches Vorgehen würden Sie in diesem Fall empfehlen?
      Vielen Dank vorab!
      PS: Speicherplatz ist natürlich ausreichend vorhanden.
