+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.
+== Installation ==
+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 / then you can unpack the source tarball and 
+run " install".
+For proper usage you do also need "gnutv" and "szap" from the dvb tools, please consult
+[[| LinuxTV_dvb-apps]]
+ * [[DvbCronRecordingInstallation]] for further information
+== Usage ==
+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 {{{ dvbcronrecording-update-change.cron }}} to 
+{{{ /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.

+== Download ==
+Currently the most current source snapshot is hosted on the buildserver at 
+[[| home:guidod:tools:scm/trac-dvbcronrecording-plugin]]
+You can also use the [[ Sourceforge Subversion Repository]] to look at the code.
