How to capture channel (PVR functionality)
Note: Meanwhile a PVR application is available that is controlled with the TV remote.
- Enter the debug menu.
- After follow the menus as this:
TOP Debug Menu -> 11 : TD Debug -> 0x04 : spI Debug -> 66 : Stream Record
- Enter 1,2,3 as VideoPid, AudioPid, PcrPid (or any other values. This not effect stream...)
This enough to start to capture that channel currently open.
- After recording, you needed to enter 67 : Stream Record Stop to menu for ending process.
- If you change channel while you are recording, stream saves null data after change...
============================== Select> 66 Input Record File Name : /dtv/usb/smb/192.168.1.2/Movies/capture1.ts > Video Pid: 0x1 input is 0x1 > Audio Pid: 0x2 input is 0x2 > PcrPid: 0x3 input is 0x3 __ REC FILE OPEN (/dtv/usb/smb/192.168.1.2/Movies/capture1.ts, ffffffff) ... ============================== Select> 67 PVR Record Instance stop complete
I believe there is must be a code for disabling/avoiding remote controls "record" button in exeDSP. I wish we could prepare an application to give TV PVR functionality back.
Thanks for sbav1 for indicating this hack :)
