Question Start all scheduled news downloads using CLI

Hi,

I'd like to use a Scheduled Task in Windows to start Calibre and force it to download all scheduled news sources.
In essence, doing through the CLI the same as the "Download all scheduled news sources" option in the menus.
Note: I do not want to use the CLI command to download specified news sources one by one (which requires specifying the recipe name for each).
Is this possible at all ?

This is not possible. You can either use the CLI and manually create a scheduled task that downloads the sources you're interested in or you need to have the GUI running and manage them there.

If Zillion wants to do some coding, he might be able to grab parts of the "download all scheduled recipes" Calibre code into a .py file, then use command line execution http://manual.calibre-ebook.com/deve...on-environment to run it.

Alternatively, he can schedule all, then use a script to launch Calibre after the scheduled time, then shut down Calibre after enough time has passed to get all recipes.
