Stop Playlist Script

I am trying to figure out my usage for some certain scripts. First, let me explain how I want tto operate.

  • Play 30 - 45 minute show (comprised of multiple songs in a playlist)
  • After main show plays through, play my static show (comprised of a flowing color shifting run with a voiceover, so an effect will not work and it needs to be a playlist then)
  • at the top of each hour restart the main playlist and do that multiple times a night.

The way I understand it it should be able to do it as follows, but maybe i'm over complicating things.

  • schedule main playlist as follows - song 1, song 2, song 3, Startrepeatingplaylist script. (this much works fine)
  • Stopplaylist script scheduled to run - doesn't matter when I schedule it, it doesn't run it. I can have it run in it's own seperate playlist scheduled at it's own seperate time, it can be seconds before the top of the hour, doesn't matter. I tried putting it at the beginning of the main playlist and that just kills whatever playlist is playing....even the current playlist which consists of the stopplaylist script and the songs.
This is where I am lost. How am I supposed to use this or accomplish this. The Startrepeatingplaylist works perfect, but stopping the playlist eludes me.


Soooo, there isn't anyone using these scripts that can help me?
