Forum: Satellite - Technomate (linux) Receivers

just got this figured out and thought i'd post how i did it. install vlc.. :P create shortcut for it, then right click on the shortcut and got to properties then add this line to end of target. "--sout file/ts:C:\where\ever\you\want\to\save\capture.ts" e.g my target for vlc is now "C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe" --sout file/ts:G:\captures\capture.ts

    Record over network with VLC.

    just got this figured out and thought i'd post how i did it.

    install vlc..

    create shortcut for it, then right click on the shortcut and got to properties then add this line to end of target. "--sout file/ts:C:\where\ever\you\want\to\save\capture.ts"

    e.g my target for vlc is now

    "C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe" --sout file/ts:G:\captures\capture.ts

    now load up the TM webui, choose the channel you want from EPG then click the VLC button in webui. and chose save file on "video.m3u" when asked



    now double click the shortcut you edited for vlc and an instance of vlc will start, now just click and drag the video.m3u you saved onto that vlc and it will save to where you set it.

    when it is done recording you can then play the file back via a mounted network share on your TM as it is the untouched .ts file, played fine on my TM600 with a capture from channel 4.

    also you will need to rename that file before recording again or it will just record over it as its set to always record to "capture.ts"

    p.s
    probably better ways of doing it but ohwell

    Re: Record over network with VLC.

    on my laptop when I installed vlc and stream a channel to it I have a record button on the player control window just click on that and it records.

    Re: Record over network with VLC.

    Didn't realise vlc had this option thanks coley65

    to enable the record button go to > View > Advanced Controls
    then go to > Tools > Prefrences > Save
    that will make it so record button will show again after restarting vlc

    then if you want to change where it will save stream to, open

    "C:\Documents and Settings\"user"\Application Data\vlc\vlcrc"

    and change this line

    # string (Record directory or filename)
    #input-record-path=

    to wherever you want e.g

    # string (Record directory or filename)
    input-record-path=G:\pvr\
