New ProNG firmware and editor available from the Philips site today. Release notes say just improved learning and stability.

Just a note on stability. I have been having all kinds of problems uploading and downloading. Recently I notice if I UNGROUP everything that is GROUPED before a download, most of these unload and download problems go away. I only get an occasional crash upon opening my pcf. MUCH more stable.

Just thought I'd post this observation.

Ti-maniac may be onto something here.

I migrated an RC9200 CCF to PCF and have been using it reliably. In the CCF, I had used buttons in nested frames to group things. Upon migration, all this grouping was undone as neither frames nor buttons can have children. However, in the PCF following migration, Groups were not assembled. As a result, I don't believe that there are any groups in my PCF.

In my case, No groups, No upload/download problems. Makes me wonder.

Peter Dewildt and Archer, what about your PCFs. I know you both generated them from scratch. Do either of you use groups at all?

I don't use Groups. I vaguely recall there were problems with Groups in the early days of the 3000 - probably still there til the recent update.

I'm surprised no one is commenting about the new version of PPENG and firmware that was reported 10 hours ago in this thread and another thread.

Has anyone tried it yet? I'm interstate this week so can't do anything til Sunday.

From Philips Web Site:

What's new in ProntoProEdit NG 1.0.15?

Improved learning via the editor
The ProntoPro NG editor has been optimized and is now ready within 1 sec to learn the IR-signal. Furthermore the new IR-learning module increases ease of learning in the Pronto device.

Improved IR code programming
"Add IR" dialog is optimized for improved efficiency in adding IR codes

From Phlips Web Site:

What's New in the Firmware:

ProntoPro NG Firmware Update
The ProntoPro NG firmware update is packed in a download tool that automitically installs the latest firmware in your device. It works independently from ProntoProEdit NG, and is easy to install.

Note: Please be sure to start up the Firmware updater before connecting your Pronto to the PC.

New in version 3.0.51
Improved learning
A new IR-learning module is implemented which makes ProntoPro NG less sensitive to learning distance, learning time, etc. The device will now also recognize IR-codes that were problematic to learn before like codes of Kenwood, Somfy, B&O, Yamaha, Onkyo, Grundig, Thomson and Echostar.

New in version 3.0.42.1
Problems solved

At regular intervals the device would crash due to RAM memory overflow. This is now fixed.

As per my post in another thread about my 7000 being
stuck, I installed the new firmware update and found
some definate improvements,at least for my applications. Both my Aquos LCD and Lutron lights
had a problem with repeating one command (volume up
and lights brighten) They would only go in steps and
no matter how I tried all of the workarounds, they wouldn't run the repeat commands. I'm happy to report
that the update has corrected this problem, so hopefully
it will resolve alot of the little annoyances that
are giving others fits as well.

Ok, I downloaded the new firmware and software for the TSU7000 and I am much happier with the results! Now, I can learn codes again, consistently, and I have been able to upload and download without any errors so far! I bet this firmware hasn't fixed everything but I am glad that the firmware/software combo has stopped some really annoying behaviors. No crashes, yet.

Can someone please provide me a link where I can download this new firmware/editor update?

Scratch that! :-) I found the files just now here at remotecentral. Had no luck at Phillips website though.

Well it seems that this new version of PPENG is a lot more stable on my computer than the last version. I can edit for long periods of time without buttons disappearing and my Gallery crashing. I still can't dl/ul after extensive editing. I have to quit PPENG and restart it then it dl's fine. I'm not sure why that is happening... Oh well, it is better than before. And I love my 7000 even with all the bugs.
It's not just a hobby, it's an obsession...

After downloading the new firmware and software for the 7000, it has locked up five different times with a black screen while trying to learn the ir code for my marquee projector. I have also noticed the code seems to always come up different and rarely is the same. None of the different codes work either. They did not mention it was a fix for the marquee so maybe it is not, but is anyone else having it lock up this much? I have reflashed the firmware but it still seems to lock up.

Thanks,
Tim

Lyndell,

You know, this reminds me of early 3000 problems (when it first came out) there was a giant problem when users grouped buttons, etc. Thought this all went away but you may be correct.
