Record channel despite blank guide slot

I was trying to find a way to manually start recording a channel even if the guide data is missing for that particular time slot. I'd say my EPG brings in about 2/3 of the data, leaving a handful of channels that I can tune in to no problem, just can't see the schedule. I recall the DVRs I've tried over the years all included a way to schedule a recording for a specific channel regardless of what the guide said. I remember running into this whenever there was an extended rain delay with a baseball game for example.

 

Is there any way to accomplish this?

 

Thanks!

Hi.  We don't have manual recordings at this time but plan to in the future.

 

We do, however, have padding for your sports example.

We have been waiting for this.....FOREVER

 

That being said, what source are you using for guide data?

It's an IPTV provider that gives me a URL to the files (no local tuner)

Yeah you would need to provide a separate/different EPG source for those channels then as Emby currently sits.

 

If you are just worried about recording ability and not what is actually on those channels you could do up an XMLTV file with filler data for the channels you want. A bit of work to set it up though. Update the date info in the file every week or so and you would be good.

NextPVR does manual recording. You could setup the plug-in to just do that. You would need to also install NextPVR server. But it is free
