I record around the clock so this method kills my system for a solid 1/2 hour to hour each morning that I can't record. I'm sure I'm an exception but just not fond of not being able to schedule something and know it will work 24 hours per day.
Is it possible for Emby to send a channel and time span to record? I'd really like to use NextPVR as the recording engine due to it's multi-rec functionality but if I can't reliably record 24/7 it's not a consideration.
Ultimately, whether NextPVR is updating the guide, or reloading it, there is always going to be a time, no matter how short, when Emby doesn't have the most up to date details. As I said above, I'm happy add in some hooks to tell Emby when it's time to reload. (i'm sure you're not sitting there scheduling stuff at 3am, even if it's recording 24 hours a day, so it's not going to inconvenience you in any practical way)
Regarding, the ability to just use NextPVR as a dumb device interface - sure, Emby can just live tv streams, and send those to files and start/stop whenever they want. It wont have enough visibility or understanding of the tuning of whatever device is used, to determine head of time if it's possible to do a recording though (with complicated stuff happening with multi-record, and multi-standard devices which can't be used simultaneously etc). (so scheduling becomes a bit of a guess, and you just have to rely on something either succeeding or failing at recording time)
