Chapter 9. Create Time-Shifted FM Radio > Scheduling and Buffering

9.7. Scheduling and Buffering

All this project is missing now is something to tie all the different components together. You need a script that xbindkeys can trigger and that will pass commands such as rewind, fast-forward, and pause on to XMMS. This script must be able to tune in radio stations, record them, and play the recording back. And because these recordings will quickly fill up your disk space, the script should also be able to clean up every few days.

You also need a way to schedule these recordings, although unlike TiVo, you don't really need to browse listings. In my case, there's only one show I want to record anyway, so I don't mind scheduling manually from the command line. The crontab program (Step 4) is perfect for the job.
