    Are you asking me or Aaron? I have never changed Comskip settings at any time.

    You asked
    Please set
    verbose=11
    and run comskip "fro the start" and mail me the generated log file.

    I could not master the email or private message with attachment so I have posted some answers.

    The first file is my MediaPortal log (0.2.3.0 Final with almost latest SVN) and the second file is the first .txt file created by Comskip for the recorded program. Verbose was set at 11 and run Comskip at start was selected. This was done today 14 december 2007.

    The third file is the first .txt file created by Comskip (0.2.3.0 Final and SVN 16599) with Comskip to run after end of recording. This MP SVN version did not allow MP Configuration to offer Comskip to run at start of recording. Her Verbose was left at 10. This was done around 10 or 11 December 2007.

    The Comskip documentation states that when processing dvr-ms while recording the following setting has to be used
    live_tv_retries=300
    i.s.o the default
    live_tv_retries=4

    Because changing the ini file seems to be very difficult I consider to make a dvr-ms specific setting for the life_tv_retries to ensure the out-of-the-box ini file is usable on live dvr-ms
    In the mean time please edit to the setting above

    Hi,

    My problem is that if the comskip run after a manual records (the running after a scheduled records is good!), the comskip.exe always aborted. I am useing 0.2.3 with TV2.

    What do you mean by "manual recording".
    Do you mean pressing the Record Now-Button while watching TV, to record the show that's currently running?

    Regards
    Ralph
