Are you on windows 8 / server 2012
Worked fine in 1.3 alpha
But not beta
Just won't launch on its own

comskip launcher ONLY starts in 1.3 beta if you click test
it does not launch with recording start or end
Sometimes you have to restart your computer after changing setting in the comskip launcher, just restarting the TV service isn't enough.
I just went through this and had to restart before the settings took.

    ^ yes tv service has to be restarted after enabling comskip launcher, I can confirm this.

    Actually @Developers , should we get a mantis issue for this? I feel that either tv service should be restarted when a user enables comskip launcher, or there should be a warning / dialog advising that restart is needed / offering the option to restart tv service.

    My experience is you need to use TV Server Config > ManualControl to stop and start the TV Server if you enable/disable a TV Server plugin comskip, xmltv, webepg, powerscheduler, etc or make setting changes. I remember most of the time but overlook this on occasion. A common complaint with xmltv is people get it setup, manual import works, but the auto import does not work when a new tvguide.xml file is generated. Stop/start TV server and xmltv auto import works. I had the same problem with comskip when I installed 1.3.0beta.

    Thank you that did the trick for comskip launcher
    comskip monitored is still a "no go!"
    but comskip launcher is working automatically after a reboot

    mediaportal 1.3 beta windows 8

    attached log files show error message from comskip_monitored with MePo 1.3.0beta. This is with a fresh up to date comskip_monitored (23/04/2012) from the plugin web page. I know comskip_monitored worked with MePo 1.2.3, I don't remember trying 1.3.0alpha. The error.log file shows the following

    2012-12-17 11:03:26.623394 [(13)]: ComSkipMonitored 1.2.x.2 - Exception: Could not load type 'OSInfo_OSInfo' from assembly 'TvControl, Version=1.2.200.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null'.

    For testing I did the following.

    1. enable comskip_monitored, stop TV Server (manual control), delete tv.log error.log, reboot. new logs show everything since reboot
    2. use TV Server Config to try a manual/test run of comskip. Fails with montored. 10:55am
    3. close TV Server Config, start MePo, do a short recording of "ABC News 11am", stopped at 11:03, comskip_monitored gets error at 11:03

    4. disable comskip_monitored enable launcher, stop TV Server (manual control), delete tv.log error.log, reboot. new logs show everything since reboot
    5. use TV Server Config to try a manual/test run of comskip. comskip works/runs for a 1 or 2 minutes (small file)
    6. close TV Server Config, start MePo, do a short recording of "NBC News 11am", stopped at 11:16, comskip_launcher autostarts and works

    attached tv.log and error.log files have the results from the tests, this is on a win7-64 system

    ignore the BDA filter error message, I showed that to mm1352000 and is not important, I always see that in the error logs

    Maybe this comes from support for Win8. So it should work with MP 1.3.0 Alpha.
