sorry for stress this topic but i have still no success with this feature.
what i discovered is that , if i redirect the output to a file then i
get only this DATE format "YYYY-DD-01:HH:01:SS" whitch is not complete .
the WakeupTimeFormat is YYYY-DD-MM HH:MM:SS
my Question is why is the time not correct reported from the mythbackend
to the $1 Variable ?
