Overlay not doing as hoped.

Post by Inzane8305 » 20 Apr 2019 19:38

Hi forum.

I created an "Advert Overlay Pattern" using the wizard.

Each hour from 6 through 20, with 20 min. apart starting at 6.12.

Each overlay edited to: Type: Playlist And Playlist set to:

F:\Reklamer\DkBureau\${Start_yyyy}${Start_MM}${Start_dd}_${Start_HH}15\O${Start_yyyy}${Start_MM}${Start_dd}_${start_HH}15.pfp

I import my logs with "CreatePlayListOnly".

This I had hoped would take the playlist named "O20190422_0615.pfp" placed in the folder F:\Reklamer\DkBureau\20190422_0615\
and play at 6.12. But nothing happens.
What am I doing wrong (If not ALL is wrong?)?

Maybe I cannot do this at all?

Any advice is MORE than wellcome.

Kind regards Kjeld, Samso Radio

Yes, this was almost correct.
The macro names however are always in small letters!
E.g. just change the macros from ${Start... to ${start....
