If configured in this manner, the "Archive Command" field below will be blank.

To setup this option manually, open the following web page in Internet Explorer, on the computer running Beyond TV:

In version 3.4.4: http://localhost:8129/settings.cgi?mode=general
Locate the "Archive Command" option. Define the full path to the executable you wish to run for this feature here. When the "Burn to CD or DVD" command is used, Beyond TV will execute the text you specify, followed by the full path to the recording the option was used on.
