Recognize & Import SiliconDust DVR items

Recommended Posts

I'm sure like many of the users here I like to tinker, I have a wide range of both software and hardware that I use to interface with my emby. 

 

I primarily use Kodi when in-house with the emby for kodi add-on, since I use kodi primarily I use the silicondust PVR system. When I am remote at work, on mobile, my projector, vacation etc. I use emby. Since I am mobile 14+ hours of the day I configure the DVR on emby when out and via the silicondust DVR add-on within kodi when home. 

 

With that being said is it possible for emby to read the silicondust dvr files metadata and use that within the [Recordings] of emby?

 

I have attached a sample of how emby reads the dvr files from my hdhomerun as an example. for some reason all recordings are being recognized as season of the witch. 

 

please let me know if there are any questions, files, etc that I can provide to assist with this if you feel it is something that can be added I am happy to provide.

 

thank you,

A sample video would still be great because I need to see how ffprobe reads it. Thanks.

silicondust categorizes their recordings 3 ways. FYI

 

--> {"Category":"series",

--> {"Category":"sport",

--> {"Category":"movie",

I tested this file, but ffprobe did not pick up on any of these attributes.

hi @@Luke - sorry I did not get a notification of your response.Is there anything else that you would like that I can possibly provide? 

 

check the first 12032 bytes of the file as that is where SiliconDust stores their info.

 

Happy to provide more sample recordings if necessary.

@@Luke - hope all is well. How are the sample files that I provided you working out? do you need anything else? Any thing that we can test to help this move forward?

I examined the jeapordy episode but ffprobe still doesn't capture the info like it does other embedded information.

 

That doesn't mean we can't get to it, it just means we're going to have to write our own code to examine the file and pull the data out. It's something we can look at in the future. But given that this one has season and episode numbers, i would think we'd able to match it to tvdb data.
