Re: Any Alternative to DTb File Watcher?

I tried using Dirmon2. I like the interface and the cleanup functions. When I used it though, it queued up a bunch of shows, but was only running one Comskip instance at a time. DVRMSToolbox Filewatcher will run multiple. Is there any way of doing this with Dirmon2? Yes. Change the resources requir...

Re: Any Alternative to DTb File Watcher?

Nah, no need to apologize about that, we've all been there, done that. It's usually something small and simple with these types of things, and generally it results in a collective sigh of relief when it's discovered to be an oversight. Plus, if someone else has the same issue, they can rummage throu...

Re: Any Alternative to DTb File Watcher?

I have no idea what the "processor done due to event" message means. I've got them in my dirmon logs as well. Are your .xml files being created in the recorded TV directory? No, I did not do anything in the .ini to specify the outlocation. The only changes I made in there was to set livetv to 1, and...

Re: Any Alternative to DTb File Watcher?

The location of the .xml file is a function of comskip, not dirmon. Make certain you are specifying the correct comskip.ini file in the options field within dirmon as well. In my setup, the .xml file is placed in the same directory as my recordings. This makes it much easier to check for what files ...

Re: Any Alternative to DTb File Watcher?

Actually, i justs did a rebuild of the PC that is processing commercial skip data, so I discovered the "login as service" issue first hand. On my original build, the user had already been granted permissions to login as service from another issue i was working on. The easy fix is to enter the info i...

Re: Comskip crashing while processing live recordings

just an fyi here... I've had flakey results with using live_tv=1. For some reason it would only process the beginning of each show and then it would just bail out. Erik posted something in another thread saying that this flag is still buggy or something like that, so i just disabled it. It's not exa...

I believe you need that setting in order to create the .xml file that is used by DTB's auto commercial skipping.

Re: dvrmsToolbox Double-Processing

I did not have that specific issue with DTb file watcher, but I had a few other squirrely things going on with it. Andy can be totally excused for not paying too mush attention to his free app, as he's been busting his butt supporting it for about 8 years already, so it's not a knock at him at all. ...

Re: Any Alternative to DTb File Watcher?

Now that I have an alternative to dtbs file watcher,I have to ask.. does dtb really need to be installed to run the dtb addin? I seem to recall the sin running independently at some point, but I may have missed something. Of core in order to customize buttons it would have to be running, but if the...

Unneeded comskip output files can be disabled
The cleanup deletes the xml files (or anything else) when the corresponding wtv files are deleted.

Re: Any Alternative to DTb File Watcher?

So do there need to be resources available to do cleanup? I'm waiting to see if that's true or not, but I'm impatient and there are still about 10 shoes on the queue. I was also wondering, perhaps it'll only cleanup for files that its processed. That would seem strange to me, but i've heard of stra...
