    theTVDB fail

    Metadata can be obtained from (suitably formatted) input file names using templates set up on the “Metadata Templates” tab of Advanced Configuration. This is based on regular expression matching and requires that metadata tags be contained between fixed text elements that delimit the text that...

    theTVDB fail

    The TVDB searches are failing because they aren't given an acceptable set of keys. The series name and at least one of the following keys is needed: episode name original air date season and episode numbers It appears your WTV metadata has the season/episode combined into the episode name...

    Parsley Problem

    Interesting. Seems like the free version is so capable that most users wouldn't have much incentive to upgrade to a paid version. Wonder what the catch is? Although only a 32-bit version, they say it will run on either 32- or 64-bit systems. Have to wonder what significant advantage a 64-bit...

    Parsley Problem

    I tracked down the bug. The only bad effect is the incorrect messages, so fix will be in the next release. Thanks for your inputs.

    Parsley Problem

    I knew ProfileMatching was one way to do it, was just curious. That's a big match list! I suspect there is a suggestive pattern to these title errors, i.e., the bogus titles are all from mpeg2 input files, correct? That must be a clue of some sort. What program do you use to monitor the...

    Parsley Problem

    I'm puzzled too. I've reviewed VAP code and can't see how this happens. I am curious about one thing: You have two different process flows for VAP depending on whether the input file is MPEG2 or mpeg4. How do you switch VAP between them? And for MPEG2 files do you do the conversion to...

    Parsley Problem

    VAP looks for a thumbnail image (which it does not provide) in a "thumbnails" subfolder of your VAP data folder. It looks for a .jpg or .png file with a title constructed based on the title of the video and (if available) the season/ep number. The messages you see just indicate it didn't find...

    VAP not allowing monitor to turn off in Win 7 and 10

    I admit to not fully understanding all the details about programming sleep in Windows but here is my best understanding of the situation: VAP does not intend to actually let your processor sleep, because it is always checking for new (or deleted) video files in the monitored folder any time it...

    Tivo File Conversion - no MAK

    Looks like an old story, which unfortunately doesn't have a happy ending: https://www.tivocommunity.com/community/index.php?threads/help-lost-my-mak.563694/#post-11630880

    Net Framework Unhandled Exception has returned

    Can you give me the section of the VAP log leading up to the exception and a description of what it was doing?

    Net Framework Unhandled Exception has returned

    You don't have to guess about the arguments, just see the item I referenced in my previous post. You know the monitor folder path (as configured in the VAP instance) so I don't see much incentive for changing these arguments, which probably would cause issues for others using them.

    VAP executable (NOT an installer) Ver. 1.41T4 included in the zip linked here: VAPexe141T4.zip Will run user postprocess scripts with -vprjOnly CL option invoked. See item 17 in "Things to Know" section of VAPreadme.pdf for details on postprocess scripts. Here is a sample .bat script that...

    Net Framework Unhandled Exception has returned

    OK, substitute the VAP executable (NOT an installer) contained in the zip linked here: VAPexe141t3.zip If you add the CL option -vprjOnly (not case sensitive) to the shortcut following the .exe path, then VAP will finish with a file after doing the adscan or Comskip processing. It will not scan...
