    Automatically cycle through ALT-TAB at specific intervals


    So, i got me some DVR based programs used to monitor multiple locations on the same tv.

    Is there any soft out there that can do this, cycle through alt-tab at specific time intervals?

    I have found one, but i can only set it to cycle at the same interval for all windows, i want to spend 10 minutes on the first window and just 1 on the second.

    Are you talking DVR for Security cameras or DVR for tv programs?

    DVR for security cameras, but this is not so relevant for my question, the soft should be able to simply cycle to any opened windows

    Yes it is relevant. You did not disclose that in your first post. If you do not have software that allows the computer to connect to the DVR to control it. I am guessing that you are using something else to view the DVR with the computer or while away from where the DVR is located.

    What are you using to view the images that the DVR has recorded, along with viewing active streaming images? VLC will allow you to run multiple instances. If the dvr is capable of RTSP://, use that to view. You could then leave the multiple VLC instances up on a desktop.

    I use BlueIris when I want to view my cameras that I have. All images go to a NAS.

    If you want more help, you are going to have to be more forthcoming with information as to what you want to do, what software you are using on the computer to view the live images from the cameras, and if the dvr has software available to run on a computer, to allow you to access live or recorded images.

    If you do not wish to disclose anything, then there is nothing anyone can help you in this matter.

    Please don't get me wrong, i have nothing to hide, but i really don't think that the contents of any opened windows are important for the soft that i'm looking for.

    I have 2 DVR softs running on the same pc, one is called CMS and the other one is NVMS, but none of them have the option that i seek, and even is they did have it, i think its impossible to make 2 different softs cycle the alt-tab menu...

    This is what i want: the CMS window should be on top for 1 minute and the NVMS one, for 10 minutes, simple as that.
