    Skip2time:
    A GUI hack to jump to a specific point in a recording

    [​IMG]

    Requirements:

    newtext2osd located in /var/hack/bin
    mwstate bug fixed.

    Install:

    Copy newtext2osd into /var/hack/bin
    run ./fixmwstate.tcl and reboot

    start the hack with
    Code:
    %  /var/hack/skip2time.tcl 
    Usage:

    On the program description screen, press "skip key",
    then the hours/minutes you want to jump to in the recording,
    then press the skip button (its underneath the FastForward button)

    E.g. type 1:22 to goto 1 hour 22 minutes into the recording.

    When you press the skip button,
    after a short delay it will jump to livetv & back,
    then start the recording at the point requested.

    version history:

    1.1: Now only visible/active on first press of the skip button

    Mike before I install and try another of your brilliant hacks can you confirm that having the 30sec skip already set instead of the normal skip will not stop your new hack working.

    Thanks

    It sets the jump directly in mfs, so 30sec skip still works etc
