Can I temporarily keep MythTV from attempting to record my scheduled programs?

0

If you’re going to, for example, have your cable TV feed temporarily disconnected, and you don’t want to record static, but you don’t want to lose your schedules: A1: Go to the “Upcoming Recordings” page of the frontend (or MythWeb) and add a “do not record this episode” override for each scheduled recording during the expected service outage. (This solution will not work for episodes with empty subtitles or descriptions because they are exempt from duplicate checking. You can simply delete these recordings after they have occurred and they will have no impact on future recordings.) A2: Use the frontend or MythWeb to edit each recording rule and set the “Inactive” flag.
