I couldnt tell if PLM would auto update it's ini file with new folders that were created with the MYHD scheduled recording app... so I banged out a script that does what I need it to do... feel free to use if you want
This script is something that I created to compliment the PLM application.
It will parse through your top level recording directories append any
subdirectories to the bottom of the PLM.ini file. If you record your shows
into folders (folders named as the title of the show), then you might like this.
You will no longer need to go and manually update your MYHD_Params.ini to
scan the sub folders.... Each time the script is ran, it generates a new
MYHD_Params.ini file and populates the bottom of the ini file with the latest
folder information. It then calls the PLM.exe application to execute.
To use the script:
MAKE A BACKUP COPY OF THE 'MYHD_Params.ini' file. THIS SCRIPT WILL
MANIPULATE THE 'MYHD_Params.ini' FILE EACH TIME IT IS RUN. PLEASE KEEP
A COPY OF YOUR ORIGINAL IN CASE YOU WANT TO RESTORE TO YOUR
1. Place this script in the same directory as your PLM application:
2. Edit your MYHD_Params.ini and remove your record folders
at the bottom of the file. Save and close the MYHD_Params.ini.
3. Rename MYHD_Params.ini to MYHD_Params.default
4. In the 'CONFIG DVR FOLDERS HERE' section (above), enter your DVR top level
recording directories. Multiple directories can be listed. Example of Syntax:
Set DVRDirectories="D:" "C:\\DVR Recordings" "\\\\Server\\Share\\"
5. Save the script and set it to run at a scheduled time.
Download the script and remove the '.txt. extention, the script is called PLM_GO.cmd
