This is great news. They had previously told me it was a hardware issue and they would never support it!

Might have to rethink the NEO

I agree this is great news! But what about discrete codes and devices not in the NEOedit Database? Will upload let us take advantage of those features?

Also, I wonder when this "update" will be!?!

Sweeeet. Makes a NEO better than a 2000. I think. Anyway there should be no problem developing a user base once they do the update. Who ever said this product was rushed of the line for Christmas was right on. Just hope they all get their updates.

I just wanted to say I have been reading all of your posts since 12/01 and have a neo coming on 12/29. I appreciate everyones passion and honesty about all the aspects involved, and I am looking forward to being part of the neo community. I was also happy to read on philips site of the upload and other assorted fixes. Lets hope the techs are timely with all updates.

Adrian,

Don't waste your time downloading the software currently on Philips' web site (version 1.2.7), it's 22 meg and the fixes are not worth it. The software update that will allow uploading has NOT yet been released, but is promised by the end of the year.

Yes! I wonder if this was planned the whole time but the support folks were simply out of the loop. Its a common enough scenario.

Hammy211, yeah that was my theory. I work at a software company so I know how STUPID management can be about rushing an incomplete product out to customers and then quickly following it up with service packs. I think they learnt that from Microsoft ;) !

The update page looks great, in addition to uploading my next complaint was about the labels and a pet peeve was the backlight. Looks like I might be able to retire my TSU1000 after all. But it wouldn't surprise me if the software still has a long ways to go. The patch may be a rush job too so they don't instantly "turn off" new customers on the 25th. I would expect a more solid release 2-3 months down the road. You don't just simply add a bunch of new features, QA it (which seemed to be completely missing from the previous releases), alpha test, beta test, and release in a few weeks. So if they "just" changed their mind it could be months before it works correctly. If support was simply uninformed but development has been heads down for the last couple months maybe we can expect what should have been released in the first place.

I think it was more of a management issue (build enough differences between the two) but that the complaints got through. From a creation point of view, I am sure the easiest thing would have been to use the CCF format and not recreate the wheel, and for all we know the NCF file format might be the same as the CCF file format with few changes.
