Recording FM
« on: January 06, 2008, 06:19:55 am »
Hello, I'm using 0704 and have a PVR 150 tuner card. I'm able to listen to FM radio stations via MythTV. Does anyone know if either LMCE or MythTV provides a way to record FM channels? Thanks.

well radio functions are not officially supported in either...so im going to guess you have to come up with something. im actually looking into the same thing but nothing short of writing my own script will do it seems...

Hmmm... I'm not a MythTV user so I'll pose a question first... If you can listen to FM broadcasts live inside Myth then i would assume that Myth must support the capability to 'record' those broadcasts too.

In the new 0710 vdr integration we inherently support 'Radio' channels as they are just another DVB channel type that vdr supports. You can do anything with them that you can do with a TV channel... apart from 'watch' them of course ;-)

MythTV itself only supports DVB Radio. FM radio is only supported via 3rd party plugins which as far as I know do not record the stream.

Well I was checking on the myth wiki and they said something about needing a data source for the stations and programming. i'll try and find that post and add it here.

im still looking for a recording solution but so far no dice.

Ok, thanks for the replies. I originally was able to get MythTV configured for FM by following this guide - http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/index.php/Fm_radio#What_is_required. I will do some research a see if recording FM channels is an upcoming feature in MythTV, or maybe I can try a third party solution that can be integrated with LMCE.

I guess you missed the earlier thread about this topic. Im actually attempting to rally some of my higher level geeky friends to teach me / help code a plugin for lmce. I figured it would be better if was part of lmce as opposed to myth mainly because im a lmce user and want to learn more about the system / how to help fix & code things within it. I will update when I get started, should be this week :)
