Hello everyone...new to the forum and a more than decade long lurker here. Have gleaned a ton of knowledge from this site over the years and would like to say thank you to all the contributors here for that.

I have just started a new (to me) foray into the world of the PEP configuration software after obtaining a practically new TSU9600. Have been using a pair of TSU9200's for years and they have served me extremely well. I so far have found PEP quite daunting, especially the scripting part and am in the process of my first build.

The big question for here is the documentation for PEP states that it will accept a CCF file for a piece of equipment and convert it to Hex natively. Has this been eliminated in the PEP 3.0 build, (can't find it)? Is it available in the earlier 2.0 builds?

Thanks, Stu

It was available in version 1.

I did it way back. But I was creating a different look , from Black and White to Color and more hard buttons . Problems arose when I moved the actions to new buttons. Some of my buttons had Learned Actions with no labels or duplicate names.

I found that taking the time and using the pronto database made things easier in the long run. Also by using the database , I found some codes for buttons that were not on the original remotes. Some of theses codes were extremely useful. PIP , Discrete Power On or Off , Picture size , Audio Effects , Camera Shutter and more.

Thanks for the reply Alpha. Kinda what I was figuring.

The piece of equipment, a Parasound C1 audio controller is not in the files... best as I can tell.

PEP3 has some memory leaks. For best reliability, I would go with the latest version of PEP2 unless for some reason, you need the 'Overlay' capability.

Thanks for the heads up Lyndel. Will make the switch to PEP2.

Does that memory leak cause a failure to save an .xcf after working on it?
Have had that happen twice with hours of work lost to the nether regions of who knows where.

Yes it can. If using PEP2 or PEP3, I would always save often and to different filenames, especially with PEP3.
