Folks - I need a little help with ShowAnalyzer and DVRMSToolbox.
I had installed ShowAnalyzer 1.0 but had issues with it so I installed the prior version.
I seem to have some conflicts between the two. Sometimes when I bring up the ShowAnalyzer interface, I'll get an error that the 'Database is locked'. The only way I know to unlock it is to reboot my HTPC. I suspect that both programs are accessing the database.
Each program has a file watcher. Which one is best to use or does it make a difference? If I choose to use ShowAnalyzer, how to I turn off DVRMSToolbox? Or vice versa?
Also, on large shows, say a football game, ShowAnalyzer gets to 100% in the queue and remains there for hours unless I reboot or kill it in the queue. On hourly shows, it doesn't seem to be an issue. Can I change something to fix this?
Since I never got a reply, I set it up to have DVRMS use ShowAnalyzer to remove commercials rather than have ShowAnalyzer remove commercials. They both choke, for me, on shows over 3 hours but since my HTPC is set to reboot every day in the wee hours, it's not really an issue. This drops the lock on the offending show and the remaining shows are processed. It just affects football TV and Nascar :>)
It appears that the developers of both DVRMS and ShowAnalyzer have abandoned the products.
And I'm not sure of the interaction involved between both products.
Re: ShowAnalyzer and DVRMS Toolbox & Automatic REBOOT
Thank you so much for your response.
May I ask, on another topic, how exactly you have your HTPC set to reboot? I do that manually from time to time, it really cuts down on the occasional "blank" recorded shows. Automatic scheduling of re-booting is one of my items on my task list for WMC. Maybe your information would save me research and make short work of the task.
