Stupid question.....

I just picked up an Asus EeePC {10" screen} as a lightweight alternative for programming on site. Sometimes i like to ride my bike to a jobsite if im only programming and the smaller pc is much nicer to carry. :)

It works well for c-bus and most other programs i use but on PEP2 it wont display right. The screen res is 1024x600 and it chops off at the building blocks tab. Is there a way around this?? Obviously i dont want to be programming a remote from scratch on this laptop but i would like to be able to do touch ups with it.

Any ideas??

Looking at a 9400 but I have Vista 64-bit (running in VM on a Mac Pro). Tried installing but the software will not run. So is there an option at this point?

EDIT: Did a search and found the instructions on hoe to change it ti a 32-bit extension. It now looks like it's working.

... and I am happy to confirm that it does open and access the databases just fine!

Thank you very much Pronto for throwing all my leaned codes away.
You see, I made the mistake of learning codes on buttons when I bought the TSU1000, and every other model up to the 9400.

How foolish of me to think that you would respect your customers by being backward compatible. If you want your system to work with databases, then you should have done the conversion for me. Were you too busy?

Ah yes, I understand. You don't develop the right product for end users. The solution is to *define* it as an installer product.

Excellent. I am sure this is helping your market share.

How to migrate from V1.1 to V2.0 is fully documented in the Philips FAQ for PEP V2. It clearly states how to keep your codes.

I think I found that but I did not fully follow it.
It sounded like I had to create a dictionary, then reset the code for each button on my remote. That is many hours of work. It sounds very much like an algorthm that could have been implemented in a couple of days by a talented programmer.

One point I was making, should any one be interested, was how Philips could keep their customers. Not how I can keep my remote codes ;)

My friend and I both have 9400's. We think it is a fantastic piece of hardware. However, the software is so difficult, that neither one of us is going to buy another. Another particularly bad implementation is the lack of mapping for most codes. I had to learn my TiVo HD codes because I got tired of trying the codes in the beloved database. Other remote manufactures seem to understand how to present a list of the models and select the correct codes.

You may think I am ranting and ignore it, but you are being hurt in the marketplace. Features that make it easier for the end user also make it easier for the installer ;)

This is all you have to do:

1. Make sure all the IR codes in the code pages have ascii names (no symbols)
2. Do a device--> right click. Save to My Database. Add correct info (brand, type, model)
3. Open ‘Database quick access’ and re-drag all the codes to the code page

Only a couple of minutes to do. No dictionary. No resetting codes.

I'd just like to also comment on the inability to use PEP on a netbook (((
Bought the little bugger especially for being able to always carry it around with me for tweaking, but was very disappointed upon first load
I have confidence though ) i'm sure soon enough it'll work.

Anything new in it or is this just the new version that supports the TSU 9300?
