Assistance with automation mode output.

Post by jsmulree » Mon Nov 19, 2018 3:25 pm

Greetings everyone,

I am attempting to automate MakeMKV and have encountered issues interpreting the output generated by the automation mode (using the '-r'/'--robot' parameter). I have followed the provided usage guidance (https://www.makemkv.com/developers/usage.txt), however this information appears to be outdated. An updated version of this usage guidance might prove handy :wink:

Consider the following drive scan message ('DRV') entry:

Code: Select all

DRV:0,0,999,0,"BD-RE HL-DT-ST BD-RE  BH16NS55 1.02","","E:"
DRV:1,0,999,0,"BD-RE HL-DT-ST BD-RE  BH16NS55 1.02","","F:"
DRV:2,0,999,0,"BD-RE HL-DT-ST BD-RE  BH16NS55 1.02","","G:"
DRV:3,0,999,0,"BD-RE TSSTcorp BDDVDW SE-506CB TS01","","H:"
DRV:4,0,999,0,"HD-DVD-ROM ELBY CLONEDRIVE 1.4","","I:"
DRV:5,256,999,0,"","",""
DRV:6,256,999,0,"","",""
DRV:7,256,999,0,"","",""
DRV:8,256,999,0,"","",""
DRV:9,256,999,0,"","",""
DRV:10,256,999,0,"","",""
DRV:11,256,999,0,"","",""
DRV:12,256,999,0,"","",""
DRV:13,256,999,0,"","",""
DRV:14,256,999,0,"","",""
DRV:15,256,999,0,"","",""
I have successfully interpreted all attributes except the attribute with the value '999'. This value appears to be constant for all drives listed, irrespective of the drive type, the disc type (including no disc), the device interface, or device presence. I cannot find any reference to this in the 'apdefs.h' source code file.

Any assistance would be appreciated :)

Kind regards,

Jason.
