    Nextend help

    I am having trouble getting NextEnd to extend sports events. I've been looking through the logs trying to understand what is happening and what is going wrong but I am no making much if any progress. I am attaching logs and I think the NextEnd log below is helpful. It makes me think the failure is because of the double entry for what I believe is the program subtitle. I haven't a clue why this is happening. My ready recordings list the game as College Football:Oregon at Washington State no duplication. I am doing a test to rule out that it has anything to do with how I program recurring recordings by doing a quick record for tomorrows Formula One and Nascar races. I'll update after the races.

    Do you use Schedules Direct?

    I've been using zap2itxml. I just signed up for a trial period of schedule direct to see how it work.

    It seems likes the title was merged with the sub title by zap2xml scraping. SD should keep them separate which NextEnd needs.

    I'm not sure if I should have started a new thread but here goes....Nextend is working now. Thanks to everyone for helping and thanks Martin for doing this. However, if there are 2 sporting events with overlapping/the same time frame only the first one to start is monitored and extended by NextEnd. Below is my parallelprocessing.bat in case something in my bat file is the culprit. Can one that more event be monitored at the same time?

    @Echo off
    --------------------------------------------------------------
    :NextEnd

    start /b "" "%programfiles(x86)%\NPVR\NextEnd.exe" --oid %3 --postgame 15
    timeout /T 2
    GoTo :BEGIN

    ================================================== ===============================================
    ParallelProcessing.bat
    Run as soon as a recording begins. Commonly used for adding commercial skipping
    functionality (comskip).
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Arguments:
    1.filename - the full path and file name of the recording file.
    2.channel number - the channel number it is recording from.
    3.oid - unique identifier to the scheduled_recordings table, applicable even if
    filename (%1) changes
    4.capture Oid - unique identifier to the device used for recording
    5.recording title - the title of the recording
    ================================================== ===============================================
    :BEGIN
    SETLOCAL
    Set SCRIPTNAME=%0
    Set BASEDIR=c:\Users\Public\NPVR
    Set LOGFILE=%BASEDIR%\Logs\ParallelProcessing.log

    Set FILENAME=%1
    Set CH_NUM=%2
    Set OID=%3
    Set DEV_OID=%4
    Set REC_TITLE=%5
    Call :LOGMSG Recording Begun - filename: %FILENAME% ChannelNUM: %CH_NUM% OID: %OID% DeviceOID: %DEV_OID% Title: %REC_TITLE%

    --------------------------------------------------------------
    :LOGMSG
    echo %*
    echo %date:~4% %time% %* >> %LOGFILE%
    Goto :EXITJOB

    --------------------------------------------------------------
    :EXITJOB
    Exit /b

    Yes you should have opened a new thread and you should have included the logs. I don't think it is the batch file because the start command will start a new instance of NextEnd.
