This can't be the whole script, as what you posted won't even compile.

 

You are missing the VAR statements for start_time & end_time and some others.

 

What are you trying to do ?

It's a start show script. It all seems to work I.e it selects the file I want played at the time I input. But it keeps restarting the file. I want to schedule pre recorded shows .

Your quite right I don't know how i missed that,

 

PAL.Loop := True;

var mytime : DateTime = now;

var I : Integer;

 

var start_time, end_time : DateTime;

 

start_time := date + EncodeTime(07,59,30,0);

end_time := date + EncodeTime(08,59,30,0);

 

if DayOfWeek(Now) = Saturday then

begin

 

if( mytime >= start_time) and (mytime

begin

WriteLn('Canvas Prog Hour!');

 

Queue.AddFile('C:Users\a\Desktop\BTG\BTG2015104.mp3',ipTop);

 

PAL.WaitForTime(T['+00:01:00']);

ActivePlayer.FadeToNext;

 

 

end;

end;

 

 

Either way with the Variable it still repeats. I don't want to use event scheduler as it only add to the queue This is not what i want. I don't want a dedicated server either.

Thanks for your help I think i will head on over to spacial and figure it out.

ARHH HAAA I see now .

 

start_time := date + EncodeTime(07,59,00,0);

end_time := date + EncodeTime(07,59,30,0);

 

if DayOfWeek(Now) = Saturday then

begin

 

 

I Think lol Trial and error always works best

You are using PAL.Loop which keeps the script rolling.

 

After the song is queued and played you must wait (at least 1 day) before the script re-cycles.

 

You can add this line:

PAL.WaitForTime('+23:59:59');

which will call it to wait for 1 day.

 

Here is the modified script:

PAL.Loop := True;
var mytime : DateTime = now;
var I : Integer;

var start_time, end_time : DateTime;

start_time := date + EncodeTime(07,59,30,0);
end_time := date + EncodeTime(08,59,30,0);

if DayOfWeek(Now) = Saturday then
begin

      if( mytime >= start_time) and (mytime              begin
                WriteLn('Canvas Prog Hour!');

       Queue.AddFile('C:Users\a\Desktop\BTG\BTG2015104.mp  3',ipTop);

       PAL.WaitForTime(T['+00:01:00']);
ActivePlayer.FadeToNext;


            end;
end;

PAL.WaitForTime('+23:59:59');

Well we first have to establish what you are trying to accomplish. I assumed that you want to run that show on a Saturday and then wait for the next Saturday to run it again.

 

That is what I have done to the script.

 

If this isn't what you are trying to do, let me know.

I agree with SCS ...

 

Use Event Sheduler if You wonna start a show at a specific day and time

example :

- load file = select file and load and notice to write ipTop

- enter = every Saturday (or other day)

- enter = hour / time ...

If You have a TOTH who starts e.g. at xx:59:45 ... than start the release of the file / show at xx:00:05

so ... TOTH e.g. 11:59:45 ... file / show at 12:00:05 etc ...

That way the set gonna be played right after the TOTH in the ipTop of the queue list

- click OK

 

Its about the best way to shedule shows, promos or anything else at a specific time / day

and / or You can shedule also specific music at days / time ... one hour of specials etc ...

 

Good luck !

 

PS : For reason that I'm using Event Sheduler for everything I run only 2 PAL ... one for the TOTH and one to connect with TuneIn

Thank you So much.

What I am trying to accomplish is to have My pre- recorded sets of which I have 9 of to play at set times on set days repeating weekly. Then all i need do is update the File location link within the script as I receive the new file. I had no idea that PAL scripts needed to be recycled. I am now a little wiser :)

Hey GK The Only reason i don't use event scheduler is because it adds the file to the bottom of the queue. As i hold a minimum of 10 songs in the queue this would mean the track i add would not play at set time, it would have to wait until it hit the top of the queue. Pal Script adds the file to the top of the queues. Admittedly Its more work and a learning curve. But i think it will be worth it.

 

Thanks for your input though

 

Regards

 

Frank

Here is a show that I have set up with the ES. It defaults to the bottom of the queue:

http://prntscr.com/98lxti

 

All I have to do is manually change ipBottom to ipTop and when the ES goes to play the show, it will put it at the TOP of the queue:

http://prntscr.com/98lyh2

 

And if you want the Queue to play it IMMEDIATELY, just add this line:

ActivePlayer.FadeToNext;

 

Here is an example:

Hi Frank,

 

In fact its piece of cake ...

 

After loading the file into the window of eventsheduler it gonna create a "command line"

Basicly that is set to "ipBottom"

But You can change that - check the post made by SCS - by deleting Bottom from ipBottom and write Top ... so it gonna show "ipTop"

 

Now Your file gonna load at the specific time into the TOP of the queue list

Oh I See :retard: Thank you so much I really appreciate your help :) I will make notes of this and try them out in future. At least now I have the best of both worlds.

 

Once again ...

- write Your TOTH as following

function ActivePlayer:TPlayer; forward;

 

 

{Wait for right time}

PAL.Loop := true;

PAL.WaitForTime(T['xx:59:43']);

{Clear queue}

Queue.Clear;

Cat ['News (ALL)'].QueueTop(smLemmingLogic,NoRules);

ActivePlayer.FadeToNext;

function ActivePlayer:TPlayer;

begin

if DeckA.Status = psPlaying then

Result := DeckA

else

Result := DeckB;

end;

- the result of your Event Sheduler gonna look (more or less) as :

Queue.AddFile('E:\......Radio Sets\.... ....\....... .... - ...... Pt1.mp3',ipTop);

- BUT You can add in front of it also an ad, promo, ID etc

Queue.AddFile('E:\......Radio Sets\.... ....\....... .... - ...... Pt1.mp3',ipTop);

Cat['IDS Overlay'].QueueTop(smLRP, NoRules);

The event sheduler script works from the "bottom" to the "top"

So what is written at the bottom gonna play in front of what is written above etc etc

 

PS : sorry for the emotions who appear into the command lines

 

If You wonna hear the result of it ... check my stream at the TOTH

That is absolutely NOT true.

 

The event scheduler (ES) executes the commands from top to bottom, in the order they were entered.

 

So in the example of Shoutcaststreaming (http://prntscr.com/98lzyd) ...

 

Queue.AddFile('C:\radio\texas_countdown\112515\texas countdown - 112515_mixdown.mp3',ipBottom);
ActivePlayer.FadeToNext;

It would execute line #1 FIRST:

Queue.AddFile('C:\radio\texas_countdown\112515\texas countdown - 112515_mixdown.mp3',ipBottom);

 

Then it would execute line #2 SECOND:

ActivePlayer.FadeToNext;

 

You're making this more complicated that need be.

Strange ... It works for Me

 

Please notice that You are writing the command as ipBottom

I write them as ipTop

 

You are right if the command runs as ipBottom

As ipTop it runs in the reverse way

 

So apologise Me ... But its not Me who makes it more complicated !!
