Using Digiguide to set manual recordings via TiVo web

This sounds a bit silly but... I don't find tivoweb a hugely easy interface. To record a programme it's a little clunky (although a lot easier than using the remote if you want to search)

However, I have the Digiguide PC based EPG, which I use to record radia via a DAB card. Digiguide has very useful markers which are like macros, driven from a rightclick menu.
This thread was started as a proposal for ideas which were subsequently debated. An approach that delivered this was developed by Paul Webster (Thanks!) and tested by myself. I have edited to bring files needed to the front of this thread:
Big thanks to Paul Webster, who developed Dabdig, a script linked to Digiguide markers, there is now a release of dabdig that will set a manual recording in tivoweb, from a right click on a programme in the Digiguide EPG.

What's needed are:
Subscription to Digiguide
DABDig
Tivoweb
Manrec Manual Recording module by Chris Wingert for Tivoweb

You will need to set digiguide with the channel id's assigned by the TiVo. To get these Channel IDs, fire up Tivoweb and click on User Interface > Channel Guide > All, then View Source, and save as a text file.

Recordings and behaviour are exactly as seen with the Manual Record module. This is NOT a practical replacement for the subscription service, simply an automation of the one-off recording method on Tivoweb.

Most markers on Digiguide fire up a specified tme before a programme starts. You can modify this so that the recording is set up immediately by using this scripting add-in with this .ini file:



[DigiGuide]

[OnProgramme]

[ReminderFired]

[Start]

[End]

[OnNow]

[ChannelMenu]

[ProgrammeMenu]
menu0=Schedule immediately via DABDig
Command0=wscript dabdig.vbe "record"




Thanks are also due to the developers of TiVoweb and its excellent module, ManRec!
