When you have simultaneous recordings being processed they are time sliced so that each is processed alternately in 30 second chunks so there should be no additional impacts to the systemHas anyone used Chaserun where you are recording (say) from ITV and CH4 at the same time?
Does Chaserun still mark the bookmarks Ok for both recordings, and are there any further limitations?
(E.g. While the 2 channels are recording is there any limitation on playback or general performance, or would it just be like the usual scenario when you are recording 2 channels at the same time?).
The developers of Chaserun and DetectAds have done great! A couple of days ago I put the Humax through its paces by recording programmes on Channel 4 and ITV1 simultaneously, whilst watching a previously recorded programme. As sure as the quote above, within minutes of the recordings completing they were bookmarked accordingly. Ads detected. Not a even a whisper on the playback while this was all happening. For now I can definitely vouch for the bookmark only option when using Chaserun with DetectAds.When you have simultaneous recordings being processed they are time sliced so that each is processed alternately in 30 second chunks so there should be no additional impacts to the system
If you are not cropping then just have it bookmark the end of the ads as I do. What can happen if you bookmark start and end is that when you realise that the ads are about to run (which is likely to be before the DetectAds 'start' bookmark) and hit the 'Jump Bookmark' button, it will jump to the bookmark at the start of the ads. OK, it's just one more press, but if you just bookmark the end it is (almost) faultless.Have bitten the bullet and decided to use DetectsAds with Chaserun but just bookmarking (no cropping).
Firstly thanks for the hint on the Bookmarks on the end of ads only. I'll try that out.If you are not cropping then just have it bookmark the end of the ads as I do.
Checking the DetectAds logs, the file is placed somewhere like /mod/tmp or something like that. So how you play it, I'm not sure how the Humax would let you, nor see it in the recorded list.Nar then. Here's a question.
I frequently put a programme to record (Say the Ice dancing on ITV), then start watching the recording about 15 to mins after the start and jump the ads to catch up. The recording in the Media list has not been bookmarked (I do use chase run) so I have to use the skip button to jump the ads. The bookmarked chase run copy must be squirrelled away somewhere. Where, and is there any snag in playing this rather than the Media copy? One that I can envisage is that the file will be open because I am watching it so the 'end of ad detection' won't be able to tidy up with the renaming etc.
Please enlighten me exactly how DetectAds in chaserun mode does it's magic filing system wise (I know that it detects silence etc.) and what will cause various file system 'failure' modes.
Yes, Linux allows it and if you rename a recording in progress it will continue to write the recording successfully to the new .ts and .nts file name/locationOpen files can be renamed on Linux.
