help with batch file

Post by CraigD » Tue Dec 05, 2017 8:15 pm

Below is my batch file. To be clear I modified a batch file from the NPVR wiki created by javawiz. I use it to specify different ini files for different channels. I want to have an ini for football games. I often watch one game live while recording another and it would be great to have the commercials processed when I watch the second game. The channel specific ini are ok but the football specific one does a better more reliable job on detecting show vs commercial. However, when I remove the REM for the football if statement in the batch file all I get is notification the recording is complete and comskip is NOT run on the file no matter what type of program I record.

I was contemplating using the same approach to having show specific ini but now it seems my approach doesn't work or at least I don't know how to make it work. Also below is the log, I've been recording random shows for testing purposes but the make a change wait 30-60 minutes and see if it works approach isn't going so well so I am asking for help.

Thanks,

Craig

Can you add just before the REM on football

echo checking for comskip on %1; channel %2 with name %5 >> %LOGFILE%

Thanks Erik,

I got it figured out with some help from JavaWiz in the NPVR forum.
