Comskip doesn't stop

Post by dmdbdd » Mon Sep 02, 2013 7:45 pm

Good morning:

When I stop and delete a recording, comskip doesn't stop running. This causes my PVR to never stay in standby. I'm also using DVRMSToolbox and MCE Standby Tool.

Is there a configuration setting I should be looking for to insure that comskip.exe is stopped when I kill a recording?

Good morning Erik:

Build 0.81.052 donators.

BTW, this will also happen with a bad recording. Yesterday when I tried to play a recorded episode of Nature, I got the weak signal message, however after a few seconds it started to play. Well, we realized that it was an episode that we had already watched, so I stopped it and attempted to deleted it. I couldn't delete it until I killed the comskip process tree and once again, my PVR stayed on all night trying to process this recording.

- Bug solved: When the recording has only one commercial at the start and always_keep_first_seconds is set comskip gets into an endless loop
Changes on 0.81.054
- Completely new approach for processing while recording. Not fully tested. Do report problems
