I can watch TV with vlc (DVB-T). Timeshift and Record functions work fine. What could I do to schedule a stream record? I. e., ZDF today at 22:25 for 45 minutes.

This is my channels.conf:

Faster than expected I found an answer! For this example I have to run:

echo 'cvlc dvb-t://frequency=594000000 :program=514 :run-time=2700 --sout Videos/Aufnahmen/heute-show-120330.mpg vlc://quit' | at 22:25

What to adjust for other scheduled recordings:

  • frequency: this number after the channel-name in the channels.conf
  • program: the last number of the line in the channels.conf
  • run-time: for how long should be recorded (time in seconds)
  • sout: place and filename for the output
  • at: start time for the record
