Can't do timed recording

Can't do timed recording
Hi Simon,

Just tried using minimstreamer for the first time.

I've managed to record a stream - terrific, and added a start and finish time, just to test it. Just a few minutes later than the current time. Sadly the recording doesn't happen.

I recorded using the stream id R2 (for radio 2), and added a timed recording for R3 in the format R3+1530-1545. It didn't work.

So having successfully recorded radio 2, I set it to R2+1550-1600.

Again no luck. Any idea what I'm doing wrong.

RE: Can't do timed recording
I should add that the logfile shows the timed recording being added.

What exactly do you see in the log at the scheduled start time and end time?

In answer to you question ..... nothing. I do see that the recording has been added, but nothing when it is due to start and nothing when it is due to end.

I should add that after I originally posted I set the timer for more than 40 minutes ahead... and it worked.

Apologies for the double post - I had a trigger finger and before I knew it
had posted twice - I really don't know how.

I have been successful when setting the start time to 1 or 2 minutes ahead. I don't know why setting the start time to more than 40 minutes ahead would make a difference, unless the time on your computer/NAS clock is significantly ahead of real time.

RE: Can't do timed recording
I did make sure that the time of my PC and NAS were synch'd.

Will try again over the coming days and report any anomalies.

RE: Can't do timed recording
Hi Both
I have just tried the recording of a radio stream .
I had the same problem with the time function.

I think this is a BST problem Both my Synology and the PC are showing BST But looking at the log the files are timestamped an hour early -- see attachment
   
The first 3 were manual with no time setting though I had tried 2 timed recordings
The 4th recording is with the time set 1 hour earlier than it should have been.
Hope this helps
Mike

It looks like this is caused by a problem with how Synology DSM handles time zone settings. I am looking into this and I will post back here when I have more information.

Are you running DSM 5.2? It looks like this has a change to how timezones are handled internally and this change requires an update to MinimServer.

Would you be willing to try a test build with a fix for this problem? If so, please confirm which DSM level you are running and which model of Synology you have. Many thanks!
