Hi. I wasn’t sure if I should start my own thread or not, but I am having this same issue but my original recordings are from the HDHomerun DVR and they don’t already have edl files alongside them.
Here is my setup: HDHR DVR doing the recording, MCEBuddy watching that folder and moving the file to a new folder on the same hard drive. I have two separate profiles setup. One is to using mkv normal on any mpeg2 recordings and one that is mkv unprocessed for the premium channels that are mpeg4.
I have both setup to remove commercials but only detect ads and the “add subtitles” and “add chapters” boxes checked. Under expert settings I have the miscellaneous box pointed at my comskip ini file and in the "General > Expert settings I have MCEBuddy pointed at my downloaded comskip exe file (the paid for version).
I edited the comskip ini file and in the filed for that I have changed the edl_skip_field to 3 since I view the recordings in MrMc.
However, the resulting edl file that is created contains the default 0s for the edl skip field instead of 3s. When MrMc tries to use that edl file it goes all wonky. However, if I manually change those 0s to a 3 it works perfectly fine.
So, not sure if I am missing a setting somewhere or not, but it’s not inputting the changes I have in the ini file.
Here is a log from my last test conversion:
