I've just finished updating the player software used on Remote Central's video section
. This new version addresses some browser-specific bugs that I'd been noticing. I've also added a new feature that will allow all videos to play properly on iPhone and iPad devices without Flash (previously you would have had to click on the manual video download link).

Once again, I've updated our Toronto & Buffalo Area OTA HDTV Channel Map
with all recent changes. This includes removing obsolete channels, updating transmitter location information, adding a large number of Ontario-area digital repeaters, adding the plans of future stations, along with a refreshed reference map.
For more, see our HDTV Forum.

I’ve had a couple of reports from members of issues with the forum software’s “photo enlargement” function (click-to-enlarge oversized photos on a darkened background). Although I’ve been unable to duplicate the issue on my side, I decided to play it safe and have upgraded the plugin to the latest version available. Please let me know if you continue to experience issues.

At long last, the forum’s advanced editor has been updated! Although it has continued to work... it hasn’t really been working perfectly. If you’ve seen all those forum posts that seem to start with a blank space – well, that was the advanced editor when used with Firefox. There were also some minor random bugs and problems.

Following this weekend’s major updates to our Toronto/Buffalo OTA HDTV Channel Map, I would also like to announce that our Rogers Clear QAM Channel List
has also been updated with recent changes, including channel moves, station renaming, along with a few new additions.
This is a list of free channels that Rogers subscribers can receive using any QAM-compatible tuner (such as in most modern HDTVs), without the use of a Rogers digital box.

In response to all of the emails (wow!) I've finally been able to update our Toronto & Buffalo Area OTA HDTV Channel Map
. This includes the latest updates to all GTA channels after the analog cutoff on August 31st, plus updates to Buffalo and Rochester stations, as well as a refreshed reference map.
Almost every entry has been modified in some way, and as there was a huge amount of changes to incorporate please take the time to let me know if you spot an error or omission! Also, I would like to hear about any new digital repeaters in the area that haven't been included.
For more, see our HDTV Forum. Note: list updated again October 3, 2011.

With our new file area program performing very well, I've finally been able to keep up-to-date with file area submissions. To that extent you'll find over 80 new universal remote control manuals as well as other new submissions in Philips Pronto, URC, RTI and Device Command Library file areas. To visit our completely enhanced and redesigned file area click here
If you have something you'd like to share with the remote control community, please take the time to upload it!

A few weeks ago I announced the launch
of our completely new file area, and asked members to look around and test things out. After a number of bugs and other changes and improvements, things have settled down and I thought it was time to itemize everything that’s changed. Read more...

Server maintenance to replace a failed hard drive is scheduled for sometime today - at this moment I do not know when exactly. Depending on what all is determined necessary to fix the issue, an outage may occur of up to several hours - or there may be no outage at all.
Update 5:40 PM EST: maintenance is now complete, with no outage (except for several minutes this morning for a reboot).
