Don,

With a 5450, upgrade to PPC 2003 did not lose Nevo, it is still there and working. I assume it is still using the CIR emitter, I can get at least 30 ft out of it, have not tried any further. Only used it in a local club/bar the other day, worked fine across the bar.

Also have all the latest upgrades from the HP site with regard to BT/ WiFi etc, though this should be totally irrelevant....you never know..

I seem to remember also upgrading Nevo at some stage, but this may have been before the 2002-2003 upgrade, cant remember

Sorry, cant help on the ccf front, but Pronto Edit falls over quite a bit, Tonto is far more tolerant of various ccf files.

Yes, Nevo is still included with PPC 2003. Strange is (as you experienced) the far greater range of Nevo compared to PDAWIN.
PDAWIN is only 3 m or so, while Nevo goes up to 5 m.
Since I assume they both address the CIR there still seems to be some magic going on...
Cheers to all,
Barend

Don,

How is it possible to remove TR completely from the iPAQ, in order to trial the newer version? I have used TR before, but the three days are up.

Cheers

Neil

I have a 5150. Is there a way to use the included dongle (it is recessed too far)? The CCF support is very slick, but not effective w/o power/range.

Thanks,
Tim

We are in the process of adding transmitter output options to the CCF mode menu in the next version, but for now the slightly convoluted way is to set the desired transmitter option in native mode, then switch to CCF mode. Voila!

Oh, teaser: new bugfix version in about a week.
Support for "Ozone" and it's wonderous on-the-fly
landscape modes about a week after that!

Don, where are we on this bugfix. I am eagerly waiting for a resolution to the IR repeating problem with CCF's.

Thanks,

Ajay Barve.

Hi Don, Any news on the new bugfix version? I too get the repeating code problem so would like to see a fix. Also, in CCF mode some devices work (Panasonic DVD)whilst others (Akai VCR)do not yet using the same CCF file all work in TV Remote 5.5. Any ideas?

Don, Just a thought but have you considered contacting Stewart Allen ([email protected]) the creator of Tonto. he is a genius with CCF files and may be able to point you in the right direction if you are having problems with files being corrupted etc. Good Luck and keep up the good work.

Hi guys,

I have just about finished the new release of Total Remote, which I think I will bump to an overall version number of v2.1 to reflect the changes and improvements. This version features several interesting things:

IrDA learning has been made absolutely time-stable. There should NEVER be a problem with timing errors.

IR transmission has been made as absolutely time-stable as each transmitter option will allow. IrDA is DEAD solid, iPaq CIR appears solid, and the audio transmission is stable within the signal limits of the format.

All screen options supported by the new "PPC 2K3 SE", "Ozone" or whatever you want to call it, are fully implemented. In short, this means Total Remote can be used in landscape mode, but of course you need a landscape skin or CCF to make any real use of it.

CCFs can now go fullscreen, so you don't have to have the Windows menubar at the top of the screen anymore.

CCF support has improved in general. Some users complained about having to double-tap keys to send a command; fixed. Some users said learning in a CCF crashed Total Remote unless you used Silent Sampling; fixed. Some users provided homemade CCFs that contained animated buttons that would not display correctly; fixed. Thanks to the core changes to IR transmission and reception theses have made CCF mode work much better.

Lastly, we support the unreleased Intel "Bulverde" processor. This doesn't mean anything to anyone but one of my OEM partners, but it sure will in the very near future. FYI to all the other guys with PPC remote apps: your stuff broke on the new CPU. Have a nice day. :)

Yet to do: press-and-hold a key does NOT send repeats in CCF mode! Major annoyance, but unlikely to affect most people's macros. We'll get it in the next rev.

Possible bug: Learning multiple buttons in CCF mode may only save the LAST button sampled, even if you sampled 10 other buttons and even verified the commands worked by transmitting them. This may be a "YMMV" (Your Mileage May Vary) bug because I have yet to reproduce it. I have a beta tester that reported the problem doing some logging for me, and with luch we will either get the answers we need or verify it is just him. :)

That said, I could really use a couple more hardcore testers. Anyone who would like to have a pre-release beta copy E-mailed to them (approx. size 1MB) can drop me a line at [email protected] and I can try to shoot it out to you. PLEASE note I am trying to reduce spam to this account, so I have obsfucated the real address. Remove all dashes, and convert TEE and AHR to the obvious letters they stand for ([email protected]). Friggin spammers make me do dances just to publically list my E-mail...

Hi Don,
The new version sounds a solid step forward and I know that many users are eagerly awaiting the new release. Did you manage to fix the repeating signal problem that I and several other users reported? This was a major problem for me and made TR unusable.
Keep up the good work.

The repeat problem that the last version had, is totally gone. All signals that I have tried seem to learn and play back well. No lock up of the IR or the prog freezing.

I did notice the problem mentioned by Don above, regarding the codes, once learned not being saved when exiting from ccf mode or shutting the prog down.

Any ideas when the new version (2.1?) will be available for download?
Cheers

I just purchased Total Remote for my Audiovox Maestro because the author seems to take intrest in his product. During the last two months I bought Ultramote with the extender. While the extender worked great the software had alot to be desired. I also Tried PDAWin with the Ultramote extender but it didn't work. Next I bought one of the Laser ir-extenders and it didn't work with PDAWin either. After a couple of un-answered emails to PDAWin I gave up on them. So if anyone is interested in one of the extenders at a reduced price let me know. Here's hoping Total Remote will get the job done.

The Ultraremote extender does work with the PDAWIN software.
I know because I am presently using this set-up.
It works great.
