Scheduler ?

Post by Kuby » Sun Nov 23, 2008 2:40 pm

I've seen "Scheduler" as a request since 2003, and promises by MM that it is high on the To-Do-List. But I continue to see the new IPod's related items bump almost all other requests over and over again.

So is MM "really" going to look at making a "simple" scheduler, simply based from the suggestions recommended? Or is this just a hopeless wish that is nearing 6 years old? :oops:

I am starting to get the same impression :-? but I have not given up hope that non-ipod related issues will be addressed.

not every wish is added as a feature, some are left up to scripters and peke's script was released about that long ago also. which is so well done theres not any need for a timer to be put in to the program.

and peke just made his script super simple to use just follow his instructions in the first post of his thread for his windows scheduler script in the scripting room.

also i think i said it way back then but in repeat.
theres not any need to do double coding since windows already includes the timers with the scheduler program then why double code and add the same thing in to monkey making monkey bloatware.

peke's script is the best of both worlds and connects them perfectly. :)

Thanks RC for support and you are right completely, but I must confess (again) that personally as a DJ would like too see more of MM automatization (there is lots of features that are added to scripting and not used and each of us value own free time) that can accomplish even make simple Scheduler (Events).

As already said thrum forum note that each windows version use different approach to Scheduler and it could take much effort to maintain all windows version compatibility.

VBScript lng is one of easier to learn, actually basics can be learn within few days and people here are always willing to help new scripter (including me).

Scheduled Playlists set to start and stop daily, with next scheduled playlists to also schedule different volumes.

Do you mean that on specific days (monday, tuesday, ..., sunday or on weekdays) MM automatically takes playlist X from 8am until 17pm, from 17pm untill 22pm playlist Y and from 22pm untill 1am playlist Z, ...?

If so I second this request :)

You already did the scripts for auto playlist scheduling,I'm still using the script I'm doing well over 400 hundred scripts now i had cut them down, but they grew in numbers again, they just need to get your windows scheduler script and have fun Automating mmw.

MM Scheduler

Post by N6JSX » Thu Oct 19, 2017 4:00 pm

I've been asking now for over 10yrs for MM to include a 24/7 Scheduler. MM Scheduler could be a compliment to JD Mode or used in a coffee house to play desired music inputting their own .WAV ads as desired. Yes, I'm a Gold MM Lifer. :o

What I'd like to see added is a simple Excel type spreadsheet with seven tabs. Each tab being one day of a week (user definable).
Each sheet starts with PC time at 0000hrs. The next cell is the function then the task cell is the user defined - play-task, a Playlist name, .MP3, .WAV, .WMA file name. Time resolution is only to the PC Clock minute. Time set task is absolute unless a Function is set.
Functions:
* = play complete file then sequence to next time
# = shuffle & repeat (for playlists)
if function is open then a playlist will play in sequence or the file will be truncated if it runs over the next specified time slot.

I see one of my day tab cells as: :D
Time....Function......Task
0000.... ...............ID.WAV
0001....*...............Anthem.MP3 :)
0003.... ...............DaysAnnouncement.WAV
0006....#...............Instrumental Playlist
0500.... ...............Revelie.MP3
0505....#...............Patriotic Playlist
0600....#...............Polka Playlist
0700....#...............Jazz Playlist
1200....*...............Anthem.WAV
1203....#...............Country Playlist
1400....#...............50s Playlist
1500....#...............60s Playlist
1700.... ...............ID.WAV
1701....*...............Taps.MP3
1705....*...............Anchors-a-way.MP3 :lol:
1710....#...............70s Playlist
2000....#...............Featured Album Playlist
2200....#...............Folk Playlist

Hi,
I know I repeat myself, but this is commercial request and needs to be treated like that unless someone is really willing to make script like that free.

I know that it can be made as for personal needs I've made similar scripts, even I made simple UI to fill the gap of setting up. I also set that exported excel sheet in .CSV to are imported.

Yeah, it still works, but one I can't publish is designed to do exactly the thing N6JSX want.
