Thanks for that, it seems like they went thru a lot of work to restore the thumbnails when a re-boot seems to fix things for me.
I haven't had time to watch anything over the last week, but sat down last night and found that newer shows stopped skipping commercials (skip data files missing). I went to the MC and opened the showanalyzer GUI and it appeared "stuck", there were 3 shows in the "active" tab, all at 100% and apparently been that way for some number of days...
For grins I dumped all CA marker files by deep cleaning (using the ShowAnalyzer GUI tools) both my saved video folder and the Dvrms Toolbox\\commercialsXML folder. Rebooted and it immediately began re-scanning the folders and marking shows. I upped the "workers" from the default 2 to now 3 since I have an i7 processor and an idling PC, so 3 shows are processed at a time. This morning all 200+ shows are marked and a random test shows are skipping just fine, BUT, the main show catagory thumbnails are missing... Open a series and the individual shows have thumbnails.
So who knows, I don't know if trying the previous DTB version will improve things, my system is stable, not taxed, and yet has these nits around DTB, it's just not perfect. DTB is a very diverse product and CA is a tiny piece of its capabilities. I wish there were a streamlined CA only version, I'm sure it would be far more stable.
Plus the issue may be ShowAnalyzer at other times (like the hangup with marking files), something out of DTb's control.
Anyhow, these are prices I'm willing to pay for CA. Skipping commercials as beautifully as DTB/SA do is worth the occasional bit of troubleshooting. But it's no "appliance" like the bulletproof Replays.
