I did that to the extreme when the Nascar race ended in a horrific crash ~ midnight after the Rain delay longer than the original planned time of the race.

I had to add ~ Six to Nine additional captures in case the race actually started and I was doing other things. I actually did not expect the race to start at all. In the end the backup captures were not needed.

It's just an text editing task, not a big job at all. The padding is such an awkward process that it was not even considered. And will not be considered by most people.

I do not know how it could be considered hard, just a check for in process and saying "You can't do that" just like MyHD does.

For your specific case, it might be "just a text editing task". But in the more general case it would require rescheduling all conflicting reservations and would not be so simple.

OTOH, ginning up a separate app that would give you VCR-type recording abilities with the HDHR would be pretty simple (and probably already exists, I imagine). It could be done with a batch file.

My HTPC is running Win 7 Pro. Verizon specifies port 465 for SMTP with SSL but 587 might work. I'll try it when I have time. Some references say 465 should be used for SSL/TLS and 587 for unencrypted; others say 465 is deprecated and 587 should be used.

With the previous version of CW_EPG, sending to port 465 with SSL checked didn't show a spinning circle or any error but the email didn't go through.

On my ISP, I found that 465 worked only for SSL; and 587, only for TLS. Gmail also liked those numbers. That was why we had CW_EPG default to those settings.

I tried all combinations of port 465|587 and Require TLS on|off. The only one that works for me on Verizon FiOS with email on verizon.net is port 465 and Require TLS off. Maybe Verizon doesn't support TLS. That wouldn't surprise me. A few years ago their personal account pages were SSL encrypted but the login pages were not, so you had to send your userID and password in the clear.

Great, as long as something floats your boat.

I've noticed a couple of anomalies about CW_EPG's operation.

1) Occasionally it fails to make a scheduled recording or records a minute or so. Tonight it didn't record Heroes Reborn and when I checked the record schedule I saw why. Although the log shows it scheduled from 19:59 to 21:01 and I'm sure the Main page did too when I checked before that time, the Main and Scheduled Items pages now show it from 19:59 to 19:59.

2) Sometimes I check what wake timers have been set with the command:
Code:
powercfg -waketimers
Lately, CW_EPG almost never sets a wake timer for the next day's check-in (it always used to) but it does set timers for the scheduled recordings. The PC is almost always on at check-in time anyway so scheduling still happens. I keep forgetting to put it to sleep before that time to see if it would awaken some other way.

CW_EPG 4.3.0.5
CWHelper 4.3.0.646
Win 7 Pro 64-bit with most updates except the ones that claim to ease the uprade to Win 10 or nag me to do so.
Java Runtime 1.7.0_05

Any ideas?

ebo, I've no clue what happened with the item 1 schedule timing. Please PM me or post here the pertinent stdout*.txt and stderr*.txt files (zipped) from the CW_EPG\logs folder and I'll take a look at the case.

Item 2 is not mysterious, however, because the new version of CWHelper uses Scheduled Tasks for the Autorun job and therefore no longer needs to set a waketimer for that. Rest assured, the PC will wake anyway. It does still handle HDHR captures the same way as before using waketimers.

PDT to PST bug?

Hi,

Perhaps it is because I have yet to update to the latest CW_EPG or Murphy saw me driving past,

But the automatic scheduling failed at 3:46 PM and attempts to schedule anything for Sunday does not work.

I am hoping that an attempt at 2-3 AM will work.

SHF


Edit:I was able to schedule by right clicking in the listings window.
A blank line at the top of the match window is a clue.

ebo sent me a log file with one of these and I found that the end time was changed from the scheduled one when CWHelper determined that it could not start the capture. it's still not clear why the recording was unsuccessful, although we may have a way to either fix the problem or at least determine what is the source (which may not be within our app).

As I commented before, this is "working as designed" because the new version uses Scheduled Tasks instead of waketimers for the daily automatic scheduling update runs. Sometimes those result in events that powercfg reports and other times not, but they do run reliably in any case.

Must be Murphy, Nani, because the old CW_EPG version will continue to work just fine as long as you don't upgrade your OS or Java.
