processing delayed

I noticed mcebuddy waits about 15 min to begin processing a recording despite having delay set to disabled. I was wondering if there was any way to speed that up. thanks

You can change the monitoring check interval in the System Settings page. By default it's 5 minutes so if it's taking 15 then the file is locked by another process.

thanks Is that odd for a show to be locked for 10 min after it is recorded In both wmc and hdhomerun dvr?

Probably. But can't say. Mcebuddy looks at 2 parameters.
1. Last time modified
2. Is the file locked

If so then it waits 5 minutes (default) to try and check for the above two again.

Use the latest build added a debug message in mcebuddy.log when mcebuddy skips over a file when the minimum age or locked criteria isn't met (locked is only printed once, minimum age is printed everytime it scans the directory)
