Hi Christian,

If you could provide the logs for the job that shows the TC issue it would be very helpful.

I dont think this is neccessary, whatever .ts file i sumbit, the starttc will never be zero. The question is more like where from would we expect the tc to originate from.
emcodem, wrapping since 2009 you got the rhyme?

I would just want to confirm that the bogus TC is taken from the delay or start_time fields. They can be unreliable. But if no other fields exists that might refer to a real start TC then I guess the best thing to do with these kind of files is to drop TC all together, or just construct something on your own using file time variables like:

%i_original_hour%:%i_original_min%:%i_original_sec%:00

It's not exact science but it might provide something more meaningful depending on your use case for a start TC.
