Top of the hour (ToH)

Post by JWvanGulik »

Hi Bernd,

I now have a daily format that starts every hour with a ToH jingle. To accomplish this I had to do a little trick and I'm wondering if this is the correct way. This is what I did:

- Added the ToH jingle to the jingle playlist
- Set the cue points of the ToH jingle and saved
- Added the ToH jingle to the "Initial track" in the script
- Deleted the ToH jingle from the jingle playlist to prevent the ToH jingle to be chosen randomly during the rest of the script

Somehow the ToH jingle is re-appearing in the jingle playlist after I deleted it (Shift+delete and then saved the playlist) and the computer is restarted. Now my question is if this is the correct way of using a ToH jingle in a script? It felt a little strange how I did it. By the way, as long as I don't restart the computer this works fine.

Thanks in advance for your reply.

You can also create a playlist with just the TOTH jingle and put it in the "initial". You can also use the overlay to add the TOTH jingle.

@Radiofreak: Thanks for the hint. I follow your proposal and add a separate folder for the ToH. Thanks!
