I'm still not at all sure of what's going on. I've seen Windows Update wipe out CW_EPG data from time to time under circumstances that I don't yet have pinned down. The first symptom of that in my cases though is that the Schedules Direct credentials disappear. I've gotten around that by making a copy of the CW_EPG Registry branch* to re-merge it whenever I'm asked to re-log in to S.D. The recovery involves several steps after the re-merge: (1) Run CW_EPG. (2) Open the Options window and then click on Save Settings. (3) Click on Download Data. That should restore all your settings and program data. We're working on a better fix for this problem in the upcoming release (which will also fix the delayed startup in 1607).

One thing to try also that may have an effect is to go to Task Scheduler and delete all the "CWEPG..." tasks there. Then run CW_EPG and click on the Save Settings button on the Automatic Settings tab.

*This is currently at HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\VirtualStore\MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wo w6432Node\CW_EPG on 64-bit Windows, but we'll be moving it out of the VirtualStore branch in the next release. That (I hope) makes this problem vanish.

That's odd....I don't have a single task relating to CW_epg that I can find...
OK.... opened Automatic Settings and clicked 'Save'... now I've got a task "Performs daily update for CW_EPG scheduling"


Should I have a task for each timed recording to be made, or are shows picked-up elsewhere?

So now we know why your Auto runs weren't happening. 😀

The scheduled recordings are kicked off via Waketimers (which are visible using powercfg.exe).

Early autumnal equinox 2016 Change?

At 9/19/2016 11:35 PM a folder was created for "Jimmy Kimmel Live", the very first time capture for that program.

No folder was created for "the late show with Stephen Colbert" at 23:30. (Padding)

Other folders for later captures also were not created.

I have closed CW_EPG after setting the folder title to none. (4.3.0.8 Special ".ts" - "tp" version)

After restarting CW_EPG I set the folder option back to title.

Two test cases have created the folders for the captures. (KCSMDT2)

What will happen when PDT goes to PST?

BTW, I have started keeping Windows Technical Support on line asking for a DVD for Windows 98 SE, this time I got a supervisor and wasted his time.

Nani, whether or not a folder is created and what sort of file name a capture gets is determined at the time that the capture is set up. Any changes to the folder/name settings afterward are not transmitted to existing capture reservations. (This is clearly stated in the pop-up notice when you make such changes) If you change your mind about folders, etc., you must delete the reservation and re-enter it.

I anticipate no PST/PDT problems this year, just as last year and the year before that.

Well I have never changed the folder option except on new installs.

Just to be safe I deleted all the scheduled captures and recreated them. (Lost 14:00 - Quincy, M.E.: Snake Eyes Part Two )
