Talking DVR to record TV video streams


There are many TV programs that are simultaneous video streamed on the internet. It would be nice to have a DVR to record the video stream to be watched at a different time. (Also, the commercials could be skipped)

Notepad++ is a lightweight programme useful for coding as well as normal text, whereas Text Editor is just a notepad as far as I can see. I created my website on Notepad++. Bluefish is pretty similar but not quite as user friendly but it's a reasonable substitute.

Get yourself a little usb tv tuner. Make sure the kernel has firmware support for it. Or build support.

Then use v4l and cron or at to start/stop recording when you wish.
Make yourself a script. Turn the machine on, record your half hour tv show, go back to sleep.

You can have as elaborate or as simple a setup as you wish.
After you have made a channels conf file for the frequencies in your area, zap a channel and record it.

For the tv streams on the internet. Scrape the source of it, then dump the stream to file. One again, bash, python, perl.

If you start a project like that, then post a thread about what you have done and where you are stuck, someone will help.

Will notepadqq do?
Or any number of really good native Linux code editors?

I would say Roblox. I am a Roblox dev, and my main platform is Linux, so it is really annoying to switch to my low end Windows PC when I could have worked on my high end Linux PC. I could have made games way faster if Roblox was ported to Linux.

Who would be in a better position to port Roblox to linux than a Roblox developer? Maybe I'm missing something.

Sorry, I am not a programmer and do not understand "Scrape the source of it, then dump the stream to file". I am just a home user of Linux. Thanks is advance. fkiss

Scrape the source: Open the web page in your browser, press F12 - that should give you a developer console - now find the URL to the stream.
dump it to a file: Simple. something like 'wget -O some_file "$URL"'

edit: which sites? Have you tried youtube-dl?

Well, actually, I am not a developer in the sense that I develop Roblox. I develop games on Roblox and am not affiliated with the actual Roblox staff.

You make us feel like you're actually working for Roblox.

I now have broadband, but when I had dial up I would of liked to see earthlink namely port there software to linux. It worked flawlessly but to have the software and for it to tell me when I had email would of been great. Plus I could of put the cd in and let it set it up for me so I would have not had to worry about dns and such. I just think it would of been great. As far has how much to pay it would of payed for itself always a noob looking for an easy way to get internet working.

Well think or swim is available as a linux download but it does not work and TDAmeritrade won't support it. I would love to see a working think or swim platform so I can do my trades easier online.
