Software for watching and recording TV

Post by becherekmg » Sat Sep 29, 2018 1:35 pm

Hello.
I use LMDE with MATE and I am looking for simple software to watch and record TV. I used me-tv in LMDE2, so I'd like to find similar application because I can not find me-tv in LDME3 repositories now. It seems that VLC player could be a good substitute but I am not able to record TV program in it. Clicking on record button has no effect.
So, I would like to find a simple application for watching and recording TV (by clicking record button or setting schedule). I know, I can try MythTV. But it has many function, it is too sophisticated for me. I prefer something more easier. Is there such software in LDME3?

VLC and a script like

Code: Select all

  frame .top -borderwidth 15
  pack .top -fill x	
  button .top.1 -text "TV1" -command { exec vlc http://yletv-lh.akamaihd.net/i/yletv1hls_1@103188/index_1564_av-p.m3u8 & }
  button .top.2 -text "TV2" -command { exec vlc http://yletv-lh.akamaihd.net/i/yletv2hls_1@103189/index_1564_av-p.m3u8 & }

Look in your Downloads directory.

Hello.

Thanks for help, but I decided to try Kaffeine. It works, so I think I found a solution, :)
