hi,

really like this app, nice and simple..

all i need it for it to set up some auto recordings of a radio stream, so i set up like 5 recordings back to back as a test and it stopped when it came to the end of the next item, but did not start again for the one after that (the next one in the scheduled tasks list)?

could it be that the start time of the next item is the same as the end of the previous one, is that the problem?

also i cannot enter "24:00" as an end time for a scheduled recording, but "23:59" is ok but it will miss 60 seconds off the end!

i'm happy to send some money if i can get this to work in the way i want :)

;-)

Do you mean with "next item" another schedule set up for another stream or two schedules for the same stream? I can take a look, the easiest way would be to send me your streamWriter profile (export it using Settings->General->One of the buttons at the bottom).

"also i cannot enter "24:00" as an end time for a scheduled recording, but "23:59" is ok but it will miss 60 seconds off the end!"

24:00 should be equivalent to 0:00.


Greetings,

hi alex, yes, it's for an internet radio station, to record all the shows, at 2 hourly intervals.

i'm just testing doing 5 mins chunks, to see if it can start and stop automatically, but it just gets to an end time then stops.

btw is it ok to have the end of the current task the same time as the start of the next one, i.e.:

08:00 10:00
10:00 12:00
12:00 14:00

etc etc?

AHA! i think this is working now, top man alex..

need to do some more extensive testing today, but will report back..

i tell you what would also be really cool, if we could also automatically trim out old recorded files, say older than x number of days?

perhaps when you right click on the stream to "setup scheduled recordings" (called "setup timers" when you get in there), you could add a tick-box and a field. the tick box would say "delete files older than" and the field would have the number of days?

:-D

cheers,
bollos

Nice to hear that it seems to work!
The suggested feature cannot be implemented because there is no direct reference between stream<->saved song. It only seems that it is because the saved songs tab shows the streams name, but under some circumstances too many or too less files will get deleted which would cause confusion and complaints.
Also I think that feature is not related directly to the timers and deleting files older than x days can be achieved using other ways/tools. It does not seem to me that it is a feature which has to be implemented into streamWriter.


Best regards,

Alex

that's a shame, that would have been nice to be able to set automatic removal of "saved songs" older than x number of days!


would be nice to be able to expand the setup "timers window", so we could see all timers without having to scroll?

also what is the "remove" column for when you can select a schedule and click remove anyway? everything seems to be set to "no" and you can't change it?

Hi,

"would be nice to be able to expand the setup "timers window", so we could see all timers without having to scroll?"

This is done in the next build.

"also what is the "remove" column for when you can select a schedule and click remove anyway? everything seems to be set to "no" and you can't change it?"

It is for automatic removal after recording. You can only set this option when the schedule is not recurring, i.e. when "Specific date" is selected for a schedule.
