Regarding HDHomerun when used with MCEBuddy, is it possible

to stop the constant recording of live shows, yet let me record the shows I want? I saw a thread from the summer, but I am unsure if the author want to stop ALL shows from recording, or stop the constant show recording

MCEBuddy has no control over HD Homerun devices. What you can do is set the conversion tasks to only start on shows 5 minutes after they’ve stopped recording.

You could also exclude any shows titled “Live TV” since that’s the folder where the SiliconDust DVR will record them. Personally, I’ve never had any issue with MCEBuddy trying to convert any live recordings.
