DVBViewer Recording Service Task

Tasks can be created and edited via the configuration program of the DVBViewer Recording Service. They can be executed via WebInterface -> Timerlist -> Tasks or via a recording timer as a after recording task.

There are two types of tasks:

Internal Tasks

Execute internal functions of the Service, like EPG Update Start, EPG Update End, Standby, Hibernate, Shutdown or create timers from saved searches with the Autotimers enabled.

Process Tasks

Execute external programs (most likely with additional parameters).

As an example take the TVInfo Importplugin with the "run" parameter or Abouttime to set the systemtime via internet. Or the support of the service by Auto Import XMLTV by user Delphi.

You have to avoid messageboxes or other input requests of the external program at any cost. The simply is no user interaction at all.
