How to use someone else's custom ini

Post by waynezo » Fri Apr 13, 2018 9:07 am

Using WMC7 USA OTA with DVRMSTB, comskip works great with 30 min comedies, but doesn't find commercials on ABC and CBS nightly news.
Since I am a newbie I wish to try someone else's ini. Would I open ini with notepad and replace text with text that is posted on this forum? Can I have multiple ini files for different shows?

I found this downloadable file on the mcebuddy forum "USA ABC Wilky13.ini"

; working great (maybe a little more padding?)

; See comskip.txt in the distribution zip file for many settable parameters, read manual.html, tuning.html and debugwindow.html for how to tune and debug comskip
detect_method=43 ; 1=black frame, 2=logo, 4=scene change, 8=fuzzy logic, 16=closed captions, 32=aspect ration, 64=silence, 128=cutscenes, 255=all CHANGED FROM 75 (47/107/111)

dvrcut_options="dvrcut \"%s.dvr-ms\" \"%s_clean.dvr-ms\" "
windowtitle="Comskip - %s"

I would replace the default ini with this then copy the default ini back if it didn't work correct?
Or is there a recommended ini on this forum for USA OTA ABC news?
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
