You've already found the culprit. Consider coNFLict. :cool: Can you add something to the "nfl" match string to make it more selective, similar to "nba basketball"?

(Loud forehead slapping sound) Thank you. I guess I was assuming that the matches had to be freestanding words. I'll fix it.

Any chance of getting support for Videoredo TVSuite 6 added?
Yes a "chance" but I'm having trouble getting motivated to do it based on my initial assessment of the complications involved, most notably the introduction of AdDetective profiles. There's significant code complication already in place to deal with Output Profiles and I'm afraid dealing with AdDetective profiles will be complicated also -- plus there isn't much documentation available to help on this -- so I'm in the dark on how to approach it.

If there were a way to let VAP use a default AdDetective profile, perhaps one set manually in the TVSuite UI, that might allow a relatively easy modification to support TVS6 at least for a first cut at a functional TVS6-compatible VAP. But I have no idea how to do that.

You would think that the developers would want to help you out since you make a valuable addition to their software. Would emailing support help motivate them?

The old AdScan COM functions should still work just like they did before, it'll just use whatever profile or options the user last applied in VideoReDo. So shouldn’t require any change if you don’t want to fully support AdScan profiles.

One thing I forgot the names of the AdScan functions for the legacy mode changed. They all now have "Interactive" in front of them. So...

InteractiveAdScanToggleScan
InteractiveAdScanIsScanning
InteractiveAdScanSetParameter
InteractiveAdScanGetParameter
InteractiveAdScanResetParameters

And when you get the list of profiles it'll also return AdScan profiles. To filter these out there is a function called ProfilesGetProfileIsAdScan that is used just like the ProfilesGetProfileIsEnabled function, just a simple BOOL value telling you if the profile is an AdScan profile or not.

Ok, with @Dan203 's help, and after some successful initial experiments, I'm encouraged and am working toward a VAP that can run TVS6. Since installations of VRD5 and VRD6 can co-exist, It looks like a given instance of VAP will have be configured upon initial startup to use either one or the other. A clean way to handle that is to actually have distinct versions, for example, VAP and VAP6.
