sqlite3 editing database me-tv.db

Asked by William Becker on 2012-10-01

Hallo,
please be patient if this is not the right plase for my question.
I try to add something to the recording schedule "by shell" comand.
I add a line to "scheduled_recording" with all the parameters and add 1 to the counter "sqlite_sequence / scheduled_recording"
Everything looks nice, if I reread the database.

But ME-TV doesn't start the recording.

The reason is, I want to add recordings by "One-Click" in "TV-Browser" , a very nice program. It can execute shell commands however it is neede, with all the data for "scheduled_recording" table as parameters.

Is it needed to restart Me-TV to reread the database?
I yes : How can I start ME-TV minimized to tray?

Thanks a lot,

William

Hi William,

Me-tv have a copy of the scheduled recording table in memory so it don't
have to read the database every minute. Each time we modify something
related to the scheduled recording in me-tv, it write the modification to
the database. So you have to restart me-tv when you manually change the
database.

A solution to this could be to use the me-tv-http deamon (small python
server to drive me-tv via web interface). You can have it by downloading
the latest source code.

For starting me-tv minimize, if you use the version 1.4, you can start the
server only ("me-tv-server" from command line). The new version use a
client/server architecture so the client can run on an other computer.

Cheers,
Frederic
