    Default Manifest File Syntax

    Hello,

    Where can I find a reference explaining what the format of the DVR manifest files is?

    I am looking at the manifest file indexing all the recorded chunks and I'm seeing something like this:

    <dvrEntry index="99812" type="9" start="66005528" stop="66006044" size="24440" artifact="V-0018_20_05_528.ismv" />

    what's the "type" parameters. What time do the "start" and "stop" values reference?

    Thanks,

    This is an internal file format and there is no documentation for it.

    what are you trying to accomplish?

    Well, the files are easy enough to parse, so I was hoping to be able to use them as a reference for what times the DVR has been recording.

    There's a manifest for each recording that you can query via API. Here's an example of an HTTPProvider that queries the duration of the recording which would be a good jumping off point:
