Is anyone thinking or working on a 'keyword or title' wish list to the
database where a show that is not currently in the epg (and therefore
can't be entered in to record) can be recorded? Entering a show title or
keywords to the database with a flag for search title or desciption, if
found when running mythfilldatabase will be added to the list of show to
be recorded. I have a handfull of shows that are not playing yet but
would like to have them autorecord. I know there was a message in the
past about setting up a manual recording then going back in to edit it
and change to any channel was a workaround but I think this would be a
pretty good feature.
The other feature would be to limit the recordings to 'first runs only'
or 'all showings'. The Tivo has this feature and I like it a lot. For
example, I can set Stargate SG1 to record all shows, all channels, but I
only want the new episodes to record when they come back on later this
year. Right now they are playing alot of repeats for this show and don't
want to record them. I think Tivo searches for (Repeat) in the
description or a flag in the EPG that specifies it is a repeat and won't
record the show if it is set to 'First runs only'.
