A radio station from Spain is experiencing some difficulties in setting the Traffic logs import using .tpi files generated by AdMaster.
The tpi files are created on One file per hour basis. However, they are stuck with configuring splitting the commercial breaks within the same hour: the traffic playlist is inserted, but all the breaks from the hour are imported in one section. As far as I can see it, this indicates that the filename format and the source folder are set correctly, and that the Split hour/Split block settings are incorrect.
The .tpi file example is as follows (the columns are tab-delimited; I have copied the unformatted text):
17:15 N B 15
17:15 N F C:\traffic\spots\Citibank Debit Card.mp3
17:15 N F C:\traffic\spots\Bud Light - Stand by you.mp3
17:30 N B 30
17:30 N F C:\traffic\spots\Citibank Debit Card.mp3
17:30 N F C:\traffic\spots\Bud Light - Bud Knight.mp3
17:30 N F C:\traffic\spots\Amazon Alexa.mp3
The file style should obviously be set as One file per hour.
What would be the correct settings for Split hour by and Split block by drop-down menus?
Where should they enter the B letter to determine the beginning of the next break?
Many thanks for your time,
