Which capture device are you using?

The files are named as listed in the library, but they are simply ignored. I would like these to be show squeezed as well: is there a way to manually fix the library?
If your capture device is already producing divx files, why would you want to showsqueeze them?

EDIT: I guess you are still doing Firewire recordings, so those are MPEG-2 streams and should be saved as .mpg or .tp, those are definitely not divx recordings, so no wonder BTV is choking on those mislabeled files...

Re: Re : Re: [addon] BTV-Externinator (Dec 31 Update)

Hi Fonceur!

Is there a version of BTV-E that works with the 4.9 beta? The version I have (1.61) throws an exception on startup when trying to fill the channel property lists.

Thanks!
B.

Re : [addon] BTV-Externinator (Dec 31 Update)

Hmm, I guess I need to install that beta and check how they changed the whole channel handling...

LOL!

My gut tells me that maybe this has something to do with the new QAM mapped channel lineups.

Anyway, if you need any help debugging or tracking down problems, let me know...

Actually, if you could zip up the various *lineup*.xml files (hidden folder C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\SnapStream\Beyond TV or such), that would probably do it.

I'll happily test a build if you don't want to install a beta.

You were correct - it crashed in the same spot. Log (and exception text) attached.

Re : [addon] BTV-Externinator (Dec 31 Update)

Here you go (I'm not including the exception text because it's the same. I figure you know that. Let me know if you want it).

Congratulations!

It looks like it worked... I recreated my tuner, scheduled a recording using grafcorder, it worked, it post-processed...

I've attached the log if you're interested.

Now I was only able to test firewire recording - no guarantees on the other tuner types...
