Silence Detector / Re: ERROR: Read Timeout when attempting configure Email
« Last post by tallone on January 07, 2020, 10:52:56 pm »
Thanks for responding Jan. It's definitely the correct address and port - I've been able to add the account to Thunderbird using the same details without any problems. Could it be that the app isn't waiting long enough (for what may be a slow server) to provide a response and throwing an error?

I've tried intentionally entering an incorrect port and note that this generates ERROR: Connection Timed Out instead.

Thanks again

The mail server is probably not reachable on the port selected. The port may be incorrect or blocked by firewall or ISP.

Silence Detector / ERROR: Read Timeout when attempting configure Email
« Last post by tallone on January 07, 2020, 08:58:19 pm »
I have a feeling that this issue stems from something our hosting provider has changed, but I'm not sure how to resolve it.

We have recently found that Send email has stopped working, with no changes to the settings in the 1.4d instance we have been using. It looks as though our hosting provider has recently (finally) enabled SSL, but when I tick this box and specify the port I'm unable to send a test message. A dialogue pops up with "ERROR: Read Timeout".  Frustratingly, this error doesn't appear in the help file or in any other threads. Any ideas?

I've tried updating to version 1.4e, to no avail. This is a Windows 8.1 device.

Thank you.

It's interesting because the number of instances is not explicitly restricted anywhere in the code. Some restrictions may exist on the OS or sound card driver side. Anyway, feel free to post any reports if the problem remains.

The older version would not support more than 4, the current version will allow me run 8.  Thank you

There's no known restriction in total number of instances.

Silence Detector / Multiple Instances (More than 4)

Is there a way to run more than 4 instances of the silences detector at the same time?  My sound card has 8 inputs and I would like to use all of them.

Version 3 of this software is no longer developed. Magic RDS 4 will bring a possibility to put the title-case conversion command inside the Text replacing box, so the conversion may apply only to specific source or category.

Control Software / Magic RDS - Text replacing - Title Case
« Last post by 3mFM Tech on December 27, 2019, 06:28:03 am »
Hi, Using the latest MagicRDS V3.8e

Have a NowPlaying.xml file that has song Title, Artist, Category & Temperature. Title is all CAPITAL letters from our playback automation system.
Also have a MessageList.txt file used for a selection of station messages which appear 60s after a new song has started.
Using 'Text Replace' to replace various special station categories with fixed text such as 'Sponsor Message', using [CAT***] as suggested in a very useful Sept 2019 post.

Wish to convert the all capitals song title to Title Case (Only first letter in each word is a capital) to make long text messages fit on radio displays that use proportional text fonts. 
Yes, we could use 'External Text Sources' > More Options > Convert to Title Case, however this rule is applied to ALL text messages, independent of source; not just the song title.
Generally need words to remain as intended without forcing 'Title Case' in all instances. Otherwise text such as '3mfm.com.au', becomes '3Mfm.Com.Au'

I'm hoping to arrange a REGEXP or similar in 'External Text Sources' > 'Text Replacing' tab to find words with ALL CAPITALS & then replace that text with the 'Title Case' equivalent in this case.
The 'Text Sources' NowPlaying.xml has the Title element defined as value %2%.
Using 'Text Replacing' ordering to manage priority, we can put any Title Case manipulation after all of the other category displays cases are managed.

Thanks for any suggestions.
