HDHR DVR extend and prime

Jun 12, 2016 at 6:18 PM
I have both an extend and prime on the HDHR DVR system. Is there a way to set it up so it is remove commercials only from the extend (already in H.264) and remove commercials and convert from the Prime?

Use the filters to create custom conversation tasks

The files have the same extension. Can the filters filter by codec?
Coordinator

No unfortunately only on certain metadata properties

Jun 19, 2016 at 4:12 PM
is there an easy way to see what metadata is available so I can see if there is a difference between recording types to try make a custom filter?

Look at the conversion log or mcebuddy.log file

Is there a way to filter on channelnumber? The Plus is ota so channel numbers are in the format #.# and the prime is cable so channel numbers are in the format ###

That metadata is not available AFAIK. Use channel name in stars

Sorry, to bring up old stuff, but I finally got a chance to try to play with this again....
MCEBuddy had several revs improving the hdhomerun dvr support so maybe it's now possible . (I'm currently on MCEBuddy 2.4.6 64bit - 20161020)
I recorded the same channel through cable and antenna. the channel name is the same so I cannot filter by name. SD DVR does have the channel number in the metadata. see below snippets of mcebuddy.log file


From antenna (extend)
"ChannelName":"WPHL-DT",
"ChannelNumber":"17.1",

From cable (prime)
"ChannelName":"WPHL-DT",
"ChannelNumber":"504",

Is there currently a way to filter for channel number? Is there a way to do it either through the config or gui? If there is no current way, can it be added?

Here is a longer snippet below of metadata.  I can provide more if needed.

No it can't filter by channel no, but in future we're thinking about allowing a filter by codec (mpeg2 or mpeg4 etc)
