The "Trac DvbCronRecording Plugin" creates a database to manage a list of recordings. The actual recording is performed by a tuning the LinuxDVB device started by a Crontab call.
There are a few extensions like detection of overlap, the definition of secondary recording times to use, and a few other tricks.
You can get a complete set of RPMs at the buildserver site including the trac modules. The tarball itself can be compiled into an rpm based on "rpm -ta $filename". If you do prefer to use distutils / setup.py then you can unpack the source tarball and run "setup.py install".
For proper usage you do also need "gnutv" and "szap" from the dvb tools, please consult LinuxTV.org LinuxTV_dvb-apps
- DvbCronRecordingInstallation for further information
Remember that you need to press "Activate" to generate the crontab entries. The
default assumes that it should not write the
/etc/cron.d/* files directly (you need
to copy the
/etc/cron.d/dvbcronrecording-update-change.cron once to allow it work)
but you can also use a config item in the admin panel to select that it should
be written directly.
Note that the system grew out of some local command-line scripts that would convert a list of recording times, channel info and program title into a matching recording script along with a Crontab entry. Transforming it into a Trac-Plugin allows for easier installation on a remote recorder box as well as sharing the recorder by multiple persons with just a web access to the recorder box.

Currently the most current source snapshot is hosted on the buildserver at home:guidod:tools:scm/trac-dvbcronrecording-plugin
You can also use the https://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/dvbcronrec/browser/trunk/DvbCronRecording Sourceforge Subversion Repository to look at the code.
