Font is set to Verdana 11pt Bold - screenshot attached
OK, this will be fixed.

Thank you

even sitting the normal distance from the PC I am unable to see any "details". Colors are fine but there would have to be a significant difference changing a background color for it to be noticed. Quite simply, the red flashing text is great ONCE your attention has been drawn to it but it needs something quite bold to attract your attention in the first place - hence my request to flash the background color of the clock  ;)
Hmm... It can flash with red background (but that looks too aggressive), but still in the "Coming up next" box. I really don't think scheduler should be in the Clock at all - doesn't make much sense, and it duplicates the flashing in Coming up next box. 2 flashing boxes is just too much. I think a setting will be added to change the way it flashes, as you proposed.


Looking aggressive is EXACTLY what I am looking for - BUT you really need to be able to enable or disable this feature if you don't like it or want it. If you are unable to do that, then don't do it as the other 99.999% of customers must be given priority  ;)

Seem to be having problems running Playlist Generator Pro as a schedule to save a playlist

I am using the command run PlaylistGeneratorPro.exe -preset=50s -out=R:\Playlist\50s.m3u8

Nothing seems to happen

I have tried doing this at the command prompt and again nothing seems happens ? I am probably doing something wrong but not sure what ?

the preset is fine and generates a playlist if run from the scheduler directly

Regards

dave

RadioBOSS 4.8.0.6
Changes:
- added TTS (text to speech) engine [details below]
- network streams are now restarted on error
- DTMF detection quality improved
- DTMF now can be checked on URL streams (Settings->Microphone/Line.In->DTMF)
- Music Library: added option to batch remove RadioBOSS additional tag
- pre-listen can be used for network streams
- Fade In now applied for network streams
- new scheduler commands: [streamarchive on] and [streamarchive off] to control the Stream Archive feature
- playlists now can contain folder paths, eg. D:\Folder\- RadioBOSS will play all files from folder

Download: http://dl.djsoft.net/beta/radioboss_4.8.0.6_beta.exe

Text To Speech can be used to say any text. While it's not for professional radio stations, there are many situations when it can be useful, eg parties, fun radio stations, etc :) It can also say current time and day.

Syntax: TTS=+N;text
+N (or -N) is talk speed, can be from -9 to +9. Zero must have a sign too (either + or -).
text - a text you want program to speak. Can contain XML tags as described here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms717077(v=vs.85).aspx and hour/minute/day macro:
%h - hour
%m - minute
%s - second
%D - day
%M - month
%dw - week day

Example:
TTS=+1;<EMPH>it's %dw %Dth of %M the time is %h hours and %m minutes thank you for listening our cool radio</EMPH>

An option to make scheduler notice more "aggressive" will be added in the next version.

Regarding playlist generation, your syntax seems correct. This will be checked. Also try it on the latest version which was just released.

The path should be full, not just .exe:
Code: [Select]
run C:\Program Files (x86)\RadioBOSS\PlaylistGeneratorPro.exe -preset=50s -out=R:\Playlist\50s.m3u8

Nope - sorry that does not work either  ???

Tried at the command prompt too with no joy

Do we need to specify the path for the preset ?

Regards

Dave

Also tried simplifying it to run C:\Program Files (x86)\RadioBOSS\PlaylistGeneratorPro.exe -preset=50s -out=c:\50s.m3u8

with no joy ?

No path needed for preset. Your command looks fine... Probably it's a bug in the "run" command processing - will be checked soon.

Hi, I have several questions / requests for improvement:


-still present the idea of weather and climate announcements? (the new function works only for English. including Microsoft has no support for reading texts in Spanish).

-the new function is streaming attempt reconnection can cause a problem if you enter the address of a song stored on the Internet at the end of this, it is found "a loss of connection", and will replay.

-personally I still need even preload buffer (loading buffer before playing).

-Selector Search improvements (show all results, and other improvements I suggested above).

- DTMF only be played when there are five minutes or less to start an event (for a delay may occur for example by streaming, and if the preset time step does not play).

-Maybe it would be useful to search for songs stored on Internet servers and add them to the list (function recently introduced VirtualDJ), using FTP servers (Songr scheduling (https://sites.google.com/site/getsongr/ ) is a good example of what I mean).

Thanks!. :)

With respect to the announcements of the time and temperature so I'd suggest working ZaraRadio:

Eg:

* Climate:

1-by Weather Watcher software: automatically updates a txt with the temperature of the city.
2-RadioBoss reads a txt temperature: eg 24 ° c.
3-then the program plays the file 24.mp3
4-The program reads a txt moisture: eg 50%.
5-then the program plays the moisture-50.mp3

* Time:
1-hour program reads the system.
2-then play the files related to the current time: eg 5am.mp3 and 00min.mp3

The error with "run" command confirmed - it doesn't start Playlist Generator Pro with the new parameters. Please wait for the next update, it will be fixed there.

Library files are searched only in standard folder, eg.
C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\djsoft.net\RadioBOSS_430382782\Database
Are you sure you have libraries there and they are not displayed?

-still present the idea of weather and climate announcements? (the new function works only for English. including Microsoft has no support for reading texts in Spanish).
Yes, it's supposed to be added in one of the 4.8.x versions.

-the new function is streaming attempt reconnection can cause a problem if you enter the address of a song stored on the Internet at the end of this, it is found "a loss of connection", and will replay.
Looks like a bug. Thanks for reporting.

-personally I still need even preload buffer (loading buffer before playing).
This is planned for the newer versions.

- DTMF only be played when there are five minutes or less to start an event (for a delay may occur for example by streaming, and if the preset time step does not play).
Please give more information on this one.

-Maybe it would be useful to search for songs stored on Internet servers and add them to the list (function recently introduced VirtualDJ), using FTP servers (Songr scheduling (https://sites.google.com/site/getsongr/ ) is a good example of what I mean).
Yes, it's a good idea. Probably will be added in the future.

I appreciate all you do for a better RB.
BUT I would like that Libraries to have MY PATH not of the system. I am sure that you can understand and you can see the importance of this request.

I like the width of PGPro Preset.
Second request:
I also like a large width for Categories Panel. Thanks for understanding.
