Dean Posted November 1, 2004 Report Share Posted November 1, 2004 Giday.. I have some pesky PVR software that locks up if I record with TimeShift mode longer than 6 hours. (it's a bug with the software) Timeshift lets you start playing back video from the PVR software while still recording the end of the show. Anyway.. my PVR software uses 'Alt+r' to start timeshift recording and 'Alt+s' to stop timeshift recording. I want a macro that when timeshift recording starts, that it won't allow for a recording longer than 6 hours.. BUT I want to be able to abort out of that macro if nesessary. Is their a way to have a timed macro, but abort out of when another macro is run, and while this is all going on.. have any other macro's also still work. I understand this would involve use of Logic comands? Unfortunately the format 'logic' and my brain are not good companions. (grin) I wonder if someone could advise total newbie how best to achieve the above?. I found the 'Timed' commands, and both timed delay and timed lapse work, but I don't know how to break out of the macro in progress, and all my other macros stop working while the time delay/lapse is running. I realise this is by design, but wonder what the correct way of doing this is? eg. For what I wish to do with the PVR timeshift record limit.. the following script works, but obviously hangs MacroExpress until the timed period is over. Text Type: <alt>r Wait Time Lapse: 360 Minutes 0 Seconds Text Type: <alt>s Is it possible to add the ability to the above script to end the macro if another macro is run containing 'Text Type: <alt>s' ? ..Deano..
