Change schedules direct file length to 30 min. each

Postby tonythetiger » Thu Jul 24, 2008 6:45 pm

Is it possible to take all the channels that are imported into my capture software and change them to a max of 30 minutes each...the idea being that a 4 hour block of News is now displayed in the TV Guide as 8 half hour blocks. I am using GBPVR to grab broadcast files but for postprocessing afterwards can't have a length much longer than 30 minutes per file. I am new to this, but assume that Schedules Direct delivers an XML that is parsed by GBPVR into the "TV Guide" that you see in the GUI??? Am I way off here or is this how it is done? Appreciate any help...

GBPVR may download the listings and process it in one pass.

One solution is to use tv_grab_na_dd to download SD listings to convert to XMLTV format, you manipulate the XMLTV guide, and then pass it to GBPVR.

Hopefully a GBPVR person will speak up. (worst case, post your issue on their forum)
