Conversion tasks overlapping?

Sep 22, 2016 at 6:03 PM
My goal is to monitor (2) locations.
  • My SiliconDust HDHomerun DVR path
  • PlayOn.tv recording path
trying to better understand my options as well as my configuration.

end goals
  • SiliconDust - strip commercials, reduce from 1080p to 720p - successful
  • PlayOn.tv - Hulu - detect adverts and banner, remove from original video file. do not compress, or convert.
no matter what I try it seems to be reducing the resolution to 720p.

thanks and sorry if this has been covered. I read the pinned threads and am not catching the solution if it is in fact there.

Start by setting up 2 monitor tasks (one for each directory) and 2 conversion tasks one for each goal. Then into the Conversion Task Expert settings page link the conversion task to the appropriate monitor task. Also note that by default MCEBuddy reduces to "Max" resolution to 720p which is defined on the conversion task page. For your PlayOn task you would want to increase that all the way to the right. Also for this profiles select an Unprocessed profile (which doesn't convert).
