Feature Request ~ Retry MXF Import

Post#1 » Fri Sep 15, 2017 11:44 am

I know it is a good thing to not try to import the MXF file during an active recording but can a few lines of code be added to try again in each following hour until it succeeds or to read the WMC database for when the active recording ends and then do the import? It is not a huge deal with 21 days data but for updates on sporting events, such as Baseball Playoffs it could be an issue to skip a day. TIA. And Gary, GREAT WORK!

You know you can do this with the scheduled task itself? Assuming of course you are returning an error status to the task when the app can't load. User can actually make it happen now by editing your task's properties.

Not quite... tried this. The restart every X times every Y minutes of the task only works if the task itself fails, not the program the task is calling. An error return from epg123Client will do nothing for causing the task to restart. In fact, the task created by EPG123 is configured to run every 30 minutes for 2 1/2 hours (5 times), but again for the task itself and not epg123.

It should, however, try every 30 minutes if it thinks the computer is on battery power or the network is not available.
