Hello all. My first post here, so be gentle if I accidentally break any rules or etiquette. I am a true Cable Cutter with only OTA and Web content. Right now, I only DVR OTA content and mostly PBS shows. The content is Recorded on a Windows 7 Media Center PC. MCEBuddy is installed on a separate 8-Core “Processing” PC and monitors the .WTV files from the MCE PC. After MCEBuddy finishes, it transfers the MP4 file(s) to my 92TB Media Server for viewing. Everything works beautifully, which is another reason why I do not want to leave Windows 7.
Here in SoCal, I am within range of 4 major OTA content Markets, so there is a lot of good choices for me since I am mostly a Documentary Junkie. PBS doesn’t run any Third Party Ads per se’ … BUT they do advertise THEMSELVES quite a lot - to the point of nausea really. And they are all exactly the same - asking for Money. These “Money-Beg” Ads (as I call them) are incredibly Long, running anywhere from 3 to 12 minutes in length. And they run them without regard to whether the viewer has already signed up as an ongoing “Supporter” or not. If you watch a lot of PBS as I do, this gets really annoying after a period of time. Comskip does not recognize these Money-Beg segments as Ads.
My question: is there anything I can do to force Comskip to recognize them as Ads and cut them out of the MP4? Actually, I am hoping that someone has already done this and might be willing to share their custom INI file with me. I have no idea as to how to custom modify a Comskip INI file. I am mostly a Hardware guy.
Thanks in advance for whatever help anyone may be able to provide,
