    Differing comskip files for different channels

    Is there a way of using a different comskip.ini for recordings from different channels? UK ITV is proving particularly tricky. Cheers

    The only way I can think of is to use run external and have different locations for each of the "comskip folders."  Have you tried ShowAnalyzer.  There is currently a beta with profiles, this would be exactly what you are looking for.

    OK, I'll investigate the run external option. Have tried show analyzer in the past but it's not been that good on UK programs. Cheers

    Use the ComskipAdvanced action.

    Re: Differing comskip files for different channels - help please

    I'm trying to get differing comskip files for each channel and I can't seem to get the plugin to work. The file I want to scan is "TempMpeg" which works with the normal scan for commercials option. When I use the comskip.advanced plugin and use DVRMSToolboxGUI to run the profile it fails when it gets to comskip with the following error Scan with Comskip Getting MetaData File is not a dvrms-file Comskip scan failed: Object reference not set to an instance of an object. I also tried runexternal but comskip hangs shortly after starting at 0% CPU until I click cancel on the GUI when it comes back to life and finishes the scan. The hang is presumably because it wants to output something to the screen but can't? I could use a file operation to copy the ini file then run comskip but that doesn't seem ideal What am I doing wrong?
