Problem that does not play on time.

Until the end of the current song can't play next playlist in calendar file.
Should begin the second playlist on 00:30 am, but is waiting until the end of the current song.

Is there a way to force to stop the current song and then play the next playlist?


<event type="playlist">
<playlist loopatend="0" priority="2" shuffle="0">play1</playlist>
<calendar duration="00:10:00" startdate="2013/01/29" starttime="00:20:00" timeoffset="00:00:00"/>
<event type="playlist">
<playlist loopatend="0" priority="3" shuffle="0">play2</playlist>
<calendar duration="00:30:00" startdate="2013/01/29" starttime="00:30:00" timeoffset="00:00:00"/>

that is just how sc_trans currently works as it doesn't have a 'hard-cut' mode for events and so will just play until the end of the current song before starting to use the next one. until / if the feature is coded into sc_trans, there is nothing you can really do about the 'issue'.

Similar issue

I accept that the playlist will not start until the last song has finished. What I am finding is that even though the playlist is scheduled to start at lets say 06:00 this is not happening on the latest Beta version. I have 6 playlists that cycle through a 24 hour period. What I have seen which is an issue is that this schedule is not applied.

I accept that a playlist may start a few minutes after its scheduled start time so the last song can complete. However the fact that I have seen a playlist that started at 06:00 play until I actually restart sc_trans.

I am running the latest version of both sc_serv and sc_trans on a windows 2003 server.

and example of one of my event entries is:

<event type="playlist">
<playlist loopatend="1" shuffle="1" priority="1">
