I need to use the software to play a couple of clips and then stop until the next top of the hour. We're using that to play the news and the station ID. After play I want the program to sit there in silence, don't play anything just be a good program. How do I accomplish this?
You can use Break Notes to insert silence for a desired period of time.
Can no one help me here? So if the software gets shutdown mid hour or we have a power failure or something I have to sit here and babysit it until the next hour. There's no way to do a join in progress or have that hard time countdown cue up to the right time?
Tonight I lost power, started the app back up and I don't want it to play my newscast until the next hour. However if I push Automation on then it will play and I can't stop it.
Justin, as far as I know, when the software restarts the schedule will be there but you could edit items in it (thus delete the newscast) and I think it will then play until the next one (which I assume is forced to be at the top of the hour).
Once you have the remainder of the hour scheduled you can go back to automation.
Am I missing something ?
Right now its playing the file over and over once automation is selected. It never cues up the timed break for 56 minutes.
