v3.2 = Keystroke Macros = AUTO BACKUP!!

Just tried this and it seems to work.

-Record a keystroke macro of the steps to backup show on a USB flash drive.
-Make sure you use the keyboard to navigate to the USB drive.
-Make a dummy cue that triggers the Macro with whatever follow time you want....30 min, an hour, whatever.
-Have cue running in background, or even make it a startup macro.

To avoid the backup happening while I am programming, I set it on a second server console so I can continue programming on the other.

Sprinkle a little parmesan and enjoy!

    After chatting with Brad and Chris, it should be said to use caution while programming during any backup saving. This could cause issues similar to the Auto-Backup issues from before.

    Still, as long as you stop programming once the Macro is triggered and let it backup the show, this works as a substitute for auto-backup.

    if you have to stop programming, then a good ol' egg timer will do ;-)
