What methods can I use to check if recording is currently active, or if they are pending N minutes from now? Basically I want to do same check that enigma2 does when starting, to avoid restarting if recordings are active or pending.

How about just looking into the source code? Just search for the (English) message, should be easy enough to find.

Hello @JasonM8,

 

Here you have example code which show how you should ask Enigma2 to restart:

 


def doRestartFailed(self, *args):
    self.session.open(MessageBox, _("Restart GUI failed. \nPlease restart STB manually."), type = MessageBox.TYPE_INFO, timeout=5 )
 
 
from Screens.Standby import TryQuitMainloop
self.session.openWithCallback(self.doRestartFailed, TryQuitMainloop, retvalue=3)
 
TryQuitMainloop will made such check for you.
 
Regards,
SSS

with webinterface

 

echo "ongoing timers:"  $(wget -O- -q http://127.0.0.1/web/timerlist |grep "e2state" | grep -c ">2<")
ongoing timers: 0

 

as you see I have no active recordings

Great tip!

I don't read PM -> if you have something to ask or to report, do it in the forum so others can benefit. I don't take freelance jobs.

Ik lees geen PM -> als je iets te vragen of te melden hebt, doe het op het forum, zodat anderen er ook wat aan hebben.

Thanks all! The webinterface solution is perfect in this case as I was trying to write a standalone shutdown script (and such a script can't access current session object, AFAIK).
 
x=$(wget -O- -q http://127.0.0.1/web/timerlist |grep "e2state" | grep -c ">2<")
if [ "$x" == "0" ]; then
  echo "No timers running, restarting"
  shutdown -r 0
else
  echo "Can't restart, there are active timers:" $x
