Me again. Is there more complete documentation than you have posted here? To try to get my RC working normally again, I tried turning IR Filter to On. This completely disabled my remote (including the power key) even after I turned off the unit. I now cannot start the TAP again without disabling my remote.

It is a clever program, but I think it might be a bit too dangerous.

You think more than 1000 lines of text is too few? I wouldn't need any doc for my own purposes. And then many people don't read it at all ...

Have you read the chapter "Troubleshooting"?
And have you read "Remote Control Interception" before using it?
You wouldn't try to drive a car w/o instructions ;-)

Your TF= and RC= settings should reflect the appropriate [M.*] mode. The first is, what your PVR is expecting (original RCU), the latter is your replacement RCU (or again your original RCU). Do you need the whole feature, actually?

Perhaps you should start with reading posting #1 :-)

Ciao,
Acade

I'm sorry if I've missed something, but I've been following every post. The instructions linked in post #1 say only this about the IR Filter:

Code:

At both menu items, the effective IR Filter mode is indicated [M.*].
"Orig. RC =" disables / enables the original RCU's IR signals.
"IR Filter" must be turned ON only, if PVR and RCU are different, i.e.if you want to use a replacement RCU.


Since my theory was that I had accidentally switched RCUs, it made sense to try turning on the filter.
It's rendered the TAP unusable, though, because if I start it, I can't use my RC. No, I don't need to switch
RCUs, but I was just trying to restore normal function.

Actually, I don't think I've ever read an instruction manual before driving a car... but I did read this one.

I appreciate your efforts in making this TAP available.

Just curious, when you have accomplished "Troubleshooting" ...

I have stopped trying, at least for now. My RC is still behaving a bit strangely, but it is usable (as long as I don't start the TAP.) I don't think AcadeRC rewrites any firmware or anything, so the cause must be somewhere else. When I get a chance, I will check my Keytransform and TMSMacro files.

After re-powering and w/o the TAP in Autostart, there are no remains left.

Good luck,
Acade

Yes, I can: http://topfield.forumchitchat.com/post/show_single_post?pid=1292587110&postcount=115&forum=375589
contains a link to TMSServer-patches.zip with an ntp program in it, written by myself. It gets the current time from the internet.

But please open another thread for this off-topic ...

As announced above, the AcadeRC project is finished.

But I have added even more documentation now:

* HTML description (with 24 screenshots and hyperlinks to all chapters)
* PDF file (converted from HTML, incl. chapter links, each starting a new page)
* Online description in TAP (view within menu window, download via internal update)

Any questions? Don't hesitate to ask here ;-)

Have fun,
Acade

Hello Australia! A happy new year to all Toppy lovers there!
(At least a less miserable one than last year ...)

An easily bypassed, but useful AcadeRC feature, that I'd like to direct your attention to, is the

    Display of .rec and media files' streams and codecs info.

Within AcadeRC's file browser, you can select such files and then press the "AR" key to show an output like e.g. this one:

[acaderc_text_codecs] 

For .rec type files, you can determine e.g. the presence of 5.1 audio or the quality (bitrate) of recordings, even before an inspection on your PC.

For media files, you may be able to find out, why a movie is not playable on your toppy (e.g. incompatible format or unsupported codec).

Have fun,
Acade

Well, I've published some more updates for AcadeRC (now v4.84):

* New: Playback 5K recordings (file is reversible modified)
* Show old 5K .rec details (times, titles, EPG infos)

* New: Playback HD .rec and .ts files without .inf (not needed)
* Playback HD .rec files without .nav (but pausing and skipping is possible!)

* Playback any TS stream, regardless of file extension
* Playback .mpeg and .vob files (like .mpg and .avi)

* Copy files and directory trees in the background (not yet documented)
* Delete directories recursively (Caution!)

* HDD infos / SMART values, even for 2nd (eSATA) disk
* HDD partition infos, even for USB devices

* Convert TAP key + "Slow" into "VF" key (TP006 lacks it)
* Pause key pauses PVR within AcadeRC windows

* Topfield forum infos (users online etc.)


DOWNLOAD: Initially, you can install AcadeRC via TapToDate (recommended), afterwards you have to call the built-in Update function in the TAP's menu (key sequence Sat + Menu or just the Menu key within the file browser). This is necessary anyway, to make sure all needed components and their last version are being present. TapToDate will be updated only for major releases of AcadeRC.

Have fun,
Acade

Ok, AcadeRC v4.85:

* Recursive directory tree listing into file AcadeRC.LST
* Selectable root "/" directory added to PVR top level
* File extension filter excludes .bak and .db3 (in addition to .inf/.nav)

* Display infos of HD .rec files modified by rectool
This feature still shows the EPG infos of deleted .inf files that you have previously imported into their corresponding .rec files with rectool.
.inf and .nav are not needed anymore, if you use AcadeRC and rectool. You can still replay, pause, skip by percent or by the yellow play bar, and display the EPG infos of these sole .rec files, even of old 5000 PVR recordings. See rectool's short description.

DOWNLOAD: Initially, you can install AcadeRC via TapToDate (recommended), afterwards you have to call the built-in Update function in the TAP's menu (key sequence Sat + Menu or just the Menu key within the file browser). This is necessary anyway, to make sure all needed components and their last version are being present. TapToDate will be updated only for major releases of AcadeRC.

Have fun,
Acade
