mailNewRecordings: Script for reporting Dreambox recordings

March 28, 2008

I’ve written a small script which reports the recordings of my Dreambox 500 receiver (with a Gemini image), which writes its data onto my Linux file server, via email. This is important as I’ve configured the Dreambox to record automatically some series. The script can be run on the file server (as in my case) or on the Dreambox (if it has python installed). It is configurable via an ini-file and reports the new recordings including the description text provided by the EPG during the recording. A summary of all stored recordings is added at the bottom of the mail. The mail also includes the amount of space used by the recordings and the available storage space. Call the script via cron once a day. Ah, and here is the link to the script: mailNewRecordings-0.1.tar.bz2
