Paused: Check conversion Schedual

Nov 25, 2013 at 7:31 PM
Edited Nov 25, 2013 at 7:32 PM
I am running MceBuddy v 2.3 release 14.


I have set the conversion time to 11:00 Pm to 8:00 Am every day. Start at and wake are selected . Minimum age before conversion is set to 3 hours.
When I select ok I get the stop time is after the start time , assuming the stop time is the next day.
When I select start I get the Paused : Check conversion schedule.

None of my conversions are processed. What am I doing wrong?

If I select resume I get a message that says idle. Still does not seem to process any recordings at the set time.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Yes my computer is running connected to a UPS and running on house electricity.

So when it is running on battery power you've configured mcebuddy to pause the conversion. Am wondering if that is causing your issue.

Well, when normal house electric goes out for a few seconds every now and then then yes the APC keeps the computer running for those few seconds.

I have not setup MceBuddy , at least knowingly , to pause itself when the house power stops. In fact I would like MceBuddy to continue the conversions as it normally would.

Thanks rboy1

I am sorry rboy1. I must have missed that in the settings. I will take another look at it . I just found the setting, " Suspend on battery" I will turn this off and it should fix the problem.

thanks for your help.
