Some questions - autoboot PXE - HOWTO?
« on: May 11, 2008, 10:15:11 am »
Hi forum,

Done a quick search, perhaps this has already been answered elsewhere, if so, please apologize and just point me there.

We have one core/hybrid and one PXE media director in the house.
The media director has its own Hauppauge PVR-150 card.
Normally the PXE media director is only booted when watching.

I have experienced that from time to time this PXE will have auto-booted for unclear reasons. I guess, most of the time it has auto-booted because the core/hybrid rebooted due to me fumbling at the installation. Usually I only find out later, and wonder why, without being able to directly link it to some previous action.

Most of the time I use http://dcerouter/mythweb to schedule recordings.
Suppose you want to simultaneously record two shows (after all you have 2 PVR cards in the house), then myth comes up with a conflict...
Is it now possible to have myth take into account the presence of the media director and auto-boot the PXE media director in time to record the second show??

Question 2:
Autoflagging commercials;
I haven't quite found how to skip the commercials.
During programming I check the comm flag.
I guess I need to give some command to have myth skip or autoskip the comm flags?
But what precisely?

Thanks a ton for your advice!!
