FTR Importing
#1
Does FTR use a database that is exportable? If it does and you can get it to me I probably could modify my SageTV import utility to bring it in.

ForTheRecord uses either SQL Server or MySQL. I will PM you a link to my ForTheRecord Database for SQL Server.

Let me know if you need any other information.

Thanks guys, that helps. Toricred simple xml is a lot easier to work with. I can certainly get scheduling (not by channel though) and I bit of a recording history.and with some help from tvdb the list of zap2it that NextPVR needs for duplicate handling. What I would still need is the actual filename and bookmark for resume, and I believe I can get that from either MyVideos60 and MyVideo68.db in userdata/Database

(Since there is a nice new sub-forum I thought I'd branch this off)

This might help if all you want is your recordings in a sortet manner

Do you think there might be something to test this weekend? I've got a long weekend and would love to spend some of it trying this out.

I just pm'd you with a link to a zip with MyVideo60.db and an xml file. I don't have the other db files.

Ok thanks I am taking a slightly different approach now and getting more from XBMC itself, and will allow for on demand updates and not just a one time import but it won't be too long now.

If anyone else can provide me with a backup xml from FTR that would be great. Post a link or PM the defails The XBMC importing is straightforward enough so I didn't those, but I'd like to check on how other people are using the FTR rules.

Thanks,

Martin

Any updates? Is there at least a version I could use to import my recurring recordings?

Yes I will send you a version tomorrow. I hoped for other input files to test, but you can at least start giving feedback.

I have now moved entirely to NextPVR as my back end. Thanks to the tireless efforts of Martin I was able to import all my recurring recordings and my recording history. In case anybody else is interested here are the instructions here.

@Toricred, I checked the logs out that you posted on the NextPVR forum and everything seems to be matching the rules I put in. Did you have concerns (other than SD) yet. I noticed too that you are only getting 8 day of SD data. You should be able to update that to 14 in config.xml if you want.

I didn't realize that. Other than my EPG updating issue everything is working great. I'm considering changing my EPG updates to use XMLTV files since I already have that working from when I was using FTR.

8-14 is not that big a deal because the recurring recording get erased and re-added daily. The advantage to SD is if you ever have a need to for rules for the actor or director, you'd need UJB's SD utilities. They are aren't widely used though.
