Data (IQ) Scheduler

During the preview phase of V3 the structure of the database may change (for example phase 6 => 7), when this happens existing definitions will be lost. Once the beta stage starts definitions will be preserved if the database structure changes.

 

The data scheduler is a powerful recording feature:

  • Unlimited entries
  • Automatically start the radio
  • Scheduler recordings for the next 90 days

From the Rec/Playback pane in the ribbon bar select Data :: SchedulerSchedule, the Scheduler window is displayed.

Definitions

The entries shown in the scheduler interface (below) are held in a SQLite database SchedulerDatabase_001.sqlite located is the User folder.

The active schedule is an XML file created when you create the Active Schedule. from the tempoprary schedule. The file is SDR-Schedule_000.xml in the User folder, to display the user folder:

  • Ribbon bar, Tools
  • From the Files button select User Folder - the Windows Explorer is opened.

Scheduler

The actual scheduler is a background thread in the console which reads definitions from the XML when the program starts and whenever this file is changed.

Using

Definitions

Create one or more recording definitions:

  • Schedule
  • Storage (Folder, Sample size)
  • Recurrence (Days of week)

Use the New, Copy, Delete, Edit options to build the list of definitions; enable the entries to be used for the active schedule.

Build a temporary schedule from the enabled definitions for the next 7, 30 or 90 days.

Temporary Schedule

In the temporary schedule window you review the entries, removing any you do not want in the active schedule. When you are finished select Active Schedule (3) to copy these entries to the active schedule.

Active Schedule

The active schedule shows the recordings which will run if the console is started and the scheduler is also started.

Start

Don't forget to start the scheduler! The setting is preserved between instances of this program.
