New to MCEBuddy - few questions

First - this there any way to turn off monitoring? I don't want a stay resident app in memory. I usually just take one day a week and convert my shows at one time.

Second - I have desktop with ATI HD7870. MCEBuddy doesn't seem to be using the GPU at all during transcode. (GPUZ to verify) Also doesn't seem to use my GTX965M in my laptop either. Remove the ATI card and MCEBuddy does use the Intel HD4600.

Third - when I try to convert SHIELD episode, I only get about last 40 min even though the entire beginning does playback. Unfortunately, MCEBuddy isn't the only app with this issue. I was hoping it didn't. That's why I donated. In this area ABC affiliated stations use 720p 60FPS. Rarely do any of these convert perfectly with an software.

Just tried AgentX and first few minutes were missing. Comskip issue? For the time being, I'm not using that.

How about posting some logs so they can be looked at????

which logs and where are they?

Oh yeah... all the conversion end up 2 channel only. Are there any settings to keep 5.1?
After installing MCEBuddy, Windows Firewall is now off and I can't turn it back on. grrrr
This forum won't remember my log in even though I checked the box.

I converted SHIELD with Comskip off. Got the entire show this time. Checking it with Media info: 1244x716 @59.94fps 2488Kbps 2 channel audio

When I convert manually, I use 1280x720 @29.97 4000Kbps Dolby 5.1. Is there any way to set MCEBuddy to my specs?

What you want is a HDHomerun Profile that Encodes the Video and Copies that Audio ... You also do not want your Video cropped you want it to be 1280x720 with a framerate of 29.97 that can be created.... is that correct?

Yes...
How do I attach the log. I have one conversion with over 20min missing -- some at the beginning and the end

That is probably due a bad EDL cutting commercials.

Specifically for ABC shows on of our users has created a custom comskip.ini file which is lying in the SHARED_INFORMATION folder of the MCEBuddy server. You can try that out and see if helps.

Since I've been having issues with all ABC affiliates, I may have Charter come out and check signal strength.
