Timer Record shows remaining time at 1hr when set for more

I am using audacity to record off a scanner using Timer Record and Sound Activated Recording and have noticed that it kept changing to a status of “Stopped” after 1hr.
I set the start and end date for the Timer to 5 days and the duration will say this, but the “Remaining Time” in the popup Timer Record Progress always coutns down from 1hr.

After 1hr there might be 5 mins of audio, but I really need for the Timer to actually run for the period set?


Unfortunately, I don’t have a spare computer sitting around to test this with - but I’ll take your word for it. Let me suggest posting a bug request here: Issues · audacity/audacity · GitHub

The only workaround I can think of is to start and stop your recording manually. Perhaps this could be automated with a third party such as AutoHotKey.
