Scheduled jobs won't play weekly
« on: March 24, 2010, 07:45:17 AM »
We are running MagicInfo Pro 2506 on a XP Pro SP2 box, scheduling a standard presentation to 4 screens with 2506 also. The template just runs from 9am to 6pm Mon-Fri, repeated weekly, for a year.

However, the schedule drops out every week, so if it plays on Monday, it won't the following Monday, even though the scheduler shows the job booked throughout the year.

Hi, quick question, have you checked the .scl file on the client in the D drive matched the schedule you have set?
I think we originally tried to set the schedule for a year but the system would only accept up to 2 months ahead. This was a while ago so things could have changed. You can open the .scn file with notepad-it's just like an XML file.

I agree with FLUIDIUM. Even if the schedukler or server has the template for a whole year, the monitor may not have what has been published. As FLUIDIUM says, check the .scl file and you can see where the template ends. What the Samsung Magicinfo pro player does is obey what is on the D: drive.
