It would be handy if it could be remapped to play (currently selected) programme starting at the first marker.

I guess a harmony remote could do that.

..or just have a menu option to "always jump to first marker on playback if exists" (and then ask about resume) as 100% of the time that's what I'd use.

Is this an OpenVix thing or the underlying Enigma 2? Who do we ask and where? It seems a pretty trivial option to implement.

They changed it to use "The Ribbon" (or whatever the replacement for a menu-bar was called).

They may be the pre/post padding markers based solely on the time the machine wakes up to record (fetches the new time from the transponder and/or the internet) and the time when the program is expected to start.
No, they are based on a change in the received signal.

You can always read the source code....

What to do if you are already past the first such marker? Should that become a further option? Things are not always quite as simple as at first seems.

The enigma2 is OpenVix. The underlying bit is the OE-Alliance.

I've had my Vu+ Duo2 just over a year and am beginning to get used to it. I recently bought a Synology NAS and have been having some fun getting the two working together.

I took the disc drive out of my old Toppy and copied all my recordings across to the NAS, then used rec2ts.php to convert them all to .ts files. With NAS mounted (via NFS and autofs) on the Duo2 I can play these files, but the file listing lacks basic program info. So I wrote a Python script (to run on my Linux box with the NAS mounted via NFS and autofs) to read the Toppy's MyStuff_RecordedInfo.dat file and generate the .ts.meta files the Duo2 needs.

If anyone would like a copy they're welcome to it. It's a bit rough and ready (it only needs to be run once) but does the job.

PS The "Reconstruct AP/SC" plugin can be used to generate the .ap and .sc files that allow jumping back and forwards with the number keys. Now all I'm missing is the accurate bookmarks.
