MCWS GetRecordingScheduleXML defaults to one week
« on: December 12, 2023, 11:28:21 am »

I tracked down a bug in my system to an unexpected default value in MCWS Television/GetRecordingScheduleXML.

The live generated documentation says:
Code: [Select]
RangeInHours: The number of hours of schedules to report starting from current hour. (default: -1)
This implies that all scheduled recordings will be returned, no matter how far in the future. It now appears that this value defaults to 168 (one week). I wanted two weeks (over the Christmas TV season) and I could not see all the recordings I had set. In my debugging, I actually assumed that the bug was in Television/SetRecording. But eventually I realised that this other call had worked.

For my preferred use, I need to pass RangeInHours=336. And that works just fine.

So ... Either the default should be to return all scheduled recordings as the doc implies. OR the doc should show the correct default value.
