Yep, finally got it, at least the m3u part, so that NPVR will like it. How are you getting your XMLTV listings? (I do have a Schedules Direct subscription, is it possible to pull from that?)
Yep. I've used programs that scrape Zap2It for XMLTV listings, but Schedules Direct is easier and only $25 a year. Doesn't really matter what Schedules Direct lineup you use as long as it's one for your time zone that has Buzzr in it.

(Apologies for asking so many questions, but you're being so damn helpful. :)) Can I use JSON listings or do I need to subscribe an XML one? KCOP out of LA has Buzzr on DT2 so it should be easy to find.

EDIT: Answered my own question. JSON ho! All set up. :)

Awesome, will be interested to know how your first scheduled recording goes.

Well, I ran a couple of practice shots today - as long as I schedule within the NPVR client, it works a treat. Using Kodi as a front-end (with the NPVR add-in) throws an error that I am clearly not the only person to have seen and doesn't have an obvious solution online, so I may just need to go with NPVR for now.

The big question will be if one or both machines I am testing on will be able to come out of sleep to deal with a scheduled recording. We'll know the answer to that in about fifteen minutes. :)

Answer: great success! They wake to record just fine, and it saves a .ts file that I can then copy off wherever I need it and convert and split as desired. (I could probably leverage MCEBuddy to convert that to an MP4 and trim ads BUZZR logo breaks automagically I wanted to, and then I would just need to split.)

So I've been trying the VLC method myself and I feel like it only works when it wants to. Last night, I tried to record BUZZR's Password Triple Shot last night & all I got was the first 15 minutes of Password Plus. Has this situation happened to anybody else, and if so, any tips on how to remedy this problem? At this point, I'm praying there'll be a "matrixwipe" type of YouTuber out there that will post the Labor Day Eve Whew! marathon and beyond there.

Don't use the most recent release of VLC.  I had similar issues with newer versions of VLC.  I'm not at my PC at the moment, but I think the release I use is 3.08.
