    NextPVR "Service" Backend?

    I hope I phrased the title OK. Not exactly sure what to ask for...

    I've developed a search process using Powershell and would like to schedule recordings for programs that I select from a grid list.

    Can someone suggest how best to do this? I've seen hints of browser URLs like "http:\\localhost:8866\service..." Is this what I'm looking for?

    Thanks.

    You can a call a URL like
    Code:
    http://localhost:8866/services/service?method=recording.save&event_id=1234

    Hi, sub.

    Did some testing and got good results. Thank you.

    Is there a method to test if a specific EventID is already scheduled? Sending a record request for an EventID already scheduled results in a duplicate event as shown in the Scheduled Recordings screen.

    You can get the scheduled recording list with something like:
    Code:
    http://localhost:8866/services/service?method=recording.lists&list=pending
