Could you add the support for the 5 fav flags?
version 0.96 supports all 5 fav flags

0x065C: Guidance Information present flag. (1=present, 0=absent)
0x0660 up to 0x06F5: Guidance Information text (null terminated)
-- cut --
I hope this helps improve your program!
thanx for the list

In my opinion 0x065C contains the length of "Guidance Information text".

but I still have the "CONTENTS not found" error message.

Can you explain what path exactly must be provided, with a concrete example? Is it a FTP path, or the path relative to the Samba shared folder?

Also, I suggest to modify the error message to display the full path of the folder that is checked. That will greatly help understand why it cannot be found. Thanks!
Have you solved your problem?
path=/dtv/usb/sda1/CONTENTS is correct if this is your partition. Its the FTP path.
In version 0.96 are much more debug information.

Thanks for the info. Not sure why I don't have the latest version. I'll try it soon...

Oh, yes, probably. I've filled most unknown locations of a test inf file with 0xFF just to verify if something changes, and with 0xFF at 0x065C, the TV has displayed the guidance text. It seems that if it is null terminated, the TV can handle it correctly. But it is probably better to store the length.

No, never got it working. I will try with v0.96.

Hi,
I am trying to use PVR Manager on a blu-ray player with internal HDD (BD-D8900) with SamyGO successfuly installed. I can use it through Samba share with Open folder option, but not directly with FTP. No CONTENTS are found. Probably the reason is that the path of the internal HDD storage is not:
/dtv/usb/sdx/CONTENTS and /dtv/usb/sdx/database, but:
/mtd_wiselink/CONTENTS and /mtd_wiselink/database
Is it possible to modify the program to work correctly with internal HDD storage or make an option to select the path manually?
Specifying the path option in SamyGoPvrManager.properties does not seem to work.

Thanks for the effort!

If you have FTP access with ftp://my.ip.of.tv/mtd_wiselink/CONTENTS (in your web browser) then this should work.

Code: Select all

server=my.ip.of.tv
path=/mtd_wiselink/CONTENTS

Regarding this 'path=' option, it seems that the program modifies it sometimes, or it removes it from the config file. It's perhaps why it has never worked for me. IMO, it should be a read-only option, never directly modified by the program without the explicit user consent.

@ andi: You should try to add that option in the file "%AppData%\Ramses\SamyGoPvrManager\SamyGoPvrManager.properties"

Yes, its my property file :D
path contains the last FTP path of a succesful connection. It tries it also at first at startup. (Thats why you can use it for modifing)
If no success it checks following pathes:

Code: Select all

/dtv/usb/sda/CONTENTS
/dtv/usb/sda1/CONTENTS
/dtv/usb/sda2/CONTENTS
/dtv/usb/sdb/CONTENTS
/dtv/usb/sdb1/CONTENTS
/dtv/usb/sdb2/CONTENTS
/dtv/usb/sdc/CONTENTS
/dtv/usb/sdc1/CONTENTS
/dtv/usb/sdc2/CONTENTS

Well, then I don't understand why it doesn't work for me, as my path is /dtv/usb/sda1/CONTENTS.
Could it be a problem with the IP? Mine is 192.168.0.3. (It is correct in the properties file, and I can easily open the FTP directory with any FTP client, but not with the PVR Manager.)
