Scheduling Your First Recording
If you have everything up and running (at least one recorder/tuner is needed), you are ready for your first recording. For our first recording, we will make a simple recording from the guide. Scheduling using rules can be tested later on. Open ARGUS TV Scheduler Console, it will open on the Guide page. Choose a program on a channel that is about to begin, right click, and select record.
This will create a manual schedule, click save and you’re done.
That done, we can now see our recording in the Programs / Upcoming Recordings:
When the recording has started, it will be listed in the Programs / Active Recordings:
Now, you can also see the (ongoing) recording in the Recordings / Recorded Programs:
You can double click the program, and the associated viewer will open.
Notice the red arrow icon, meaning that the recording is still busy. A green arrow indicates a completely recorded program, and a blue arrow indicates a partially recorded program. See Meaning of Icons
You can abort the program by right clicking the program in the Active Recordings and select “Abort Recording”. It would result in partial recording.
Congratulations on your successful installation and first recording!
