Advertisements I'm at it again, sorry; this TiVo hacking is addictive. I'm building a hack which will extend the current 28-day no-re-record rule so that an episode, once recorded, will NEVER be re-recorded. This will mean that I can have a SP for a show on a heavy repeat cycle and it will pick up only the episodes which I have not recorded before. It will also allow you to block entire series from being recorded by a wishlist or (optionally) as suggestions. A TiVoWeb module will let you edit the blocked episodes list, should you discover that a recording has failed or whatever. You can restore a blocked episode from Recording History. A manually specified recording will not be blocked. It WON'T fix dodgy guide data (miracles, as they say, are extra), so duplicates caused by that will not be affected. And of course the blocking of repeats only starts from the day the hack is installed, so there will be period where it doesn't seem to be helping much; but give it a few months and UK Gold SPs might become usable. Now my problems in writing this are 1) it will do nothing for 28 days as TiVo handles it up to that point and 2) I need a good variety of SPs and wishlists to get it checked out. So I'm looking for some brave volunteers to help me out. The hack has three bits: 1) A modified version of EndPad, which as well as doing its usual stuff creates a little database of what has been recorded. If you don't want padding, that's fine it will run with the padding part turned off. 2) A TiVoWeb module that lets you view and edit that database 3) A script which runs periodically and removes episodes which are in its "recorded" database from the To Do List Initially I'm looking for help with 1 and 2; 3 will come a bit later as it's more alpha than beta right now! But I want to get the database creation/editing part completely sorted before setting the actual episode blocking loose. So at this stage your recordings would be safe. To be able to help, you'll need to have TiVo with TiVoWeb. If you are prepared to help the cause of new hacks, could you PM me your e-mail address? Thanks. A shipping version of this (which ended up working rather differently) is here: http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?p=2341737&&#post2341737 There are are also a couple of modded versions people have done in subsequent posts.
