I haven't tried it, but that's awesome. You'll be hearing back with a big thanks if I can just get my internet to stay connected long enough to download JRA

uhh..yeah...well I just tried it. It worked the first time but when I needed to tweak my ncf a bit on the second time it erased my device that I made the new device screen. In other words, it completely erased my replayTV pages. Every one of them. All my learned replaytv codes that took me hours to get the Neo to learn - GONE! DO NOT USE THIS! I have to Re-do my entire ncf because of this thing!

I accidently deleted my ncf file once. I just uploaded my NEO and all was well.

I tried this of course - but it does not work like that with his hacked program. Once I screwed it up it's gone. I uploaded my ncf but when I tried to re-download it, it saved it - which of course creates a new device menue - which is what erases your old device - whice happened to be my replayTV device. I re-did it - Okay now. Just be warned about using this. I recomend saving your ncf to another file name (create a backup) BEFORE you mess with this, so when you screw your up with this hack you can always download the other one that you saved.

What I do is, when I use the program, I "Save As" to a different name and use the newly created one to upload. This way I always have my original.

BTW, he just uploaded a NEW version of the program, which allows you to change ALOT, uncluding learned codes(now if we knew what to change them too) Go here for the new program(under files/utilities): [Link: groups.yahoo.com]

Hey,

sorry for messing up you file. I tried to be clear in the readme that you need to backup your files. I believe I also mentioned that NEOedit will overwrite your custom startup page if you try to save in NEOedit, so backup your custom device. There's no way around it, b/c NEOedit will always auto-generate the startup page when you save.

Thanks for all of your effort creating this tool. I would like to use it to edit the IR codes for specific actions. It appears, however, that all of the IR codes display the same values (0x0D31) for the "type:NORMAL IR" field and (0;0) for the "duration" field.

Is there something I'm doing incorrectly here? Are all of the IR codes 2-byte codes like this? Is there some place where I can find the codes for all of my devices?

I'll email you my first attempt at an NCF file which demonstrates the IR codes all appearing the same along with a small Excel spreadsheet identifying the components of my 2 systems.

Thanks very much and regards.

Hi ChocoboLee,
It's my fault - your work on this program is great! I just got a little rushed to finish my ncf and didn't back up my ncf first - duh. Live and learn :)

Also check out the other Overview edit program.
No need to Download java runtime for "NeoSynch" and
you can make some changes to the ncf file AFTER you have moved your device of choice to the overview page.

If you add a new device OR upload from the Neo, then it resets itself, but you don't lose your device you had moved, as to what happened to poor onion!

It is still very important for user's to have a backup, I try to atleast hace two backup copys of my Ncf file before going in to modify them! That and the fact the NeoEdit is prone to crashing as well!
