Recording API problem

Post by higgx » Mon Sep 10, 2018 4:17 pm

Hi Oberon,

I am writing to ask you to change the creation rule of the broadcastID (used by KODI).
Right now I think you are using epochtime() to generate a broadcastID from the start date/time of the show to record.
I know that the JSON RPC API is just requesting to have a unique ID per channel but it would help a lot if it would be unique overall channels (or at least for one TV backend like tvmosaic). Since the API is missing a channel ID (up to now) there is no way to know which channel should be recorded and since you are using only the start time there are a lot of TV shows starting for example at 20.15h at least in Germany. Means if I try to create a timer nobody knows from which channel I want to record. So I ask you to add the channel information in some way to the broadcastID. This would make this ID unique for TVmosaic and a proper timer can be created.

thanks in advance
regards
higgx
