It might depend on the version of ffdshow.

Try the following:
Start -> All Programs -> ffdshow -> Video decoder configuration
Select "DirectShow control" in the left panel
Check the box next to "Show dialog when an unknown application tries to load ffdshow." in the right panel.

Restart DW.

Probably depends on exactly which apps. I've used this:

You mean common sense won over corporate greed - in a court of law???

Wow, just wow! There is hope for us all... Was a close call though:

Hi Shaun.

Just gave this a try. Didn't work out-of-the-box for me.

I had to replace (line 42):
CODE
fileURL = fileURL.replace("+", " ");

with:
CODE
fileURL = fileURL.replace(/\+/g, " ");

HTH

Then the file is passed through MKVmerge to write in the cue marks which allow proper scanning of the file. Unfortunately Handbrake has a bug and does not set these itself.

Adrian.

You may be interested to note that in the latest development version of Handbrake they've fixed the MKV seeking issues: Handbrake Development Snapshot

Might help simplify things a little bit, but the usual caveats obviously apply.

HTH.

Can we please close this thread?

I've been a member of this forum for over 3.5 years and one of the things that I've always admired is the incredibly helpful, non-abusive, unbiased nature of the members here.

During this time only two or three threads that I've noticed have contained any inflammatory information.

Digital video can be an overwhelming subject and I still remember that when I started looking into HTPCs I nearly had a brain embolism trying to get Digital Watch 1 up and running on my Twinhan (or TwinHam if you prefer ;-) ). I wouldn't have made it very far without the incredible help of the folks here.

If people have a particular preference, good. That is your right and if you want to let other people know, good too, but please do so without bias or expectation of how your preferences are received. Expecting or demanding others to agree with you is rubbish. Do you really need other people's acceptance to feel good about your decisions? (This is a rhetoric question.)

Feel free to promote the aspects of the tools that you prefer but I don't feel that it's not necessary to put down other tools in the process. It would be better for everyone concerned if you could provide feedback to the authors of said tools, via the appropriate mechanisms. In this way the authors can consider improving their tools for the benefit of others.

If your setup works well for you, congratulations and please help out others where you can. If not, maybe we can help.

Let's keep doing the fantastic job we've been doing with assisting others setting up their own systems, etc.

Can we please, please, please close this thread? (It's not helping anyone!)

My 2.2 cents worth.

Adrian

Hi Shaun.

Think I ran into a minor issue with WS Pro (5.2.0.7).

I had two capture paths set up, one for general shows and one for kids shows. Then I changed my mind and decided to set up a number of different capture paths, one for the boy, one for the wife and one for me, etc.

I went through the auto-adds and updated the capture path for each one.

Then I deleted the old kids shows one. Next day all the shows got captured to the wrong paths.

I'm suspecting that removing a capture path causes the enumeration of the other capture paths to change but the auto-add entries don't get updated to match. Is this possible?

Thanks,
Adrian

Hi Adrian.

See if this version helps (if you haven't worked it out already... wink.gif ):
CODE
for %%i in ( "*.mpg" ) do call :1 "%%i"

goto :eof

:1
cscript "C:\Program Files\CommandQueue\CommandQueue.vbs" cscript "C:\Program Files\WSMPP\WSMPP.vbs" "%~1" -xvidhi -del 5

:eof

Not sure how many people are using DVRview these days but I was making some enhancements when I started getting the crash on exit problem. I'm not a c++ coder so I thought I might be in real trouble... unsure.gif

After learning more about C++ debugging than I'd like, to cut a long story short, I worked out what I think was causing the problem.

Sometime between starting to make my changes and today, I installed Digital Watch 2, and obviously registered the TSFileSource filter that came with it - version 2.2.0.8. I had previously been using 2.2.0.9 without issue. Re-registered 2.2.0.9 and no more crashes. Phew.

Dan, if you read this, you might want to consider updating the DW2 package with the latest version of your wonderful filter... smile.gif

Hi Renura.

They look good. Any guesstimates on times/costs? As a laptop user I'm primarily interested in the USB version and was going to purchase a Tiny from you but now I just might have to wait a little longer. wink.gif

If I remember correctly, the format of the time and date produced by TIME /T or DATE /T is influenced by the regional settings being used.

On Windows XP:
Go to Control Panel -> Regional and Language Settings -> Click on 'Customize' and you can change the format.

Unfortunately, this means that it's almost impossible to write a single batch file that will work for everyone 'out of the box'.

As an aside, it may be easier to use %TIME% and %DATE% and the 'substring' command, eg. set year=%date:~8,4%, though I'm not sure which versions of Windows support this is.

HTH.
