Version 1.4.4.0

Bug fixes
- It was not possible to select min and max values for a feedback sequence of type ‘Number range’ when ‘Binary’ was selected as value type.
- If the first byte of a command in a feedback sequence was ‘00’ the field was empty instead of being interpreted as the special character NUL. It didn’t have any effect on the actual command.

 

Version 1.4.3.0

Changes
- Added tooltips in Device settings to explain the functions.
- Right click menu in the sequence list is updated.
Bug fixes
- In a special case a custom byte delay was enabled, but it had no value, resulting in an error.
- If a device in version 2.20 containing a feedback sequence with a reply mapped to a sequence that was not of type power or source, the following feedback sequences was not converted when changing device version to 2.10.
- When adding a feedback sequence or feedback reply, focus was not in the command field.
- Renaming and deleting a feedback reply was only possible once, until you manually selected a new reply.

 

Version 1.4.2.0

Changes
- The count byte was cleared when changing level type. Now it only clears if command is changed.
Bugs
- It was only possible to paste in a command when it was empty.

- When pasting text that resulted in exceeding the command fields maximum length, multiple text boxes was shown.

 

Version 1.4.1.0

New
- New device version (2.20).
- Support for new feedback setup.
Changes

Bugs

- When saving in a write protected location a non-descriptive error message was shown.

 

Version 1.3.2.0

Bugs
- If having an in/decrement level sequence with count bytes selected the selection was reset when entering the sequence.
- It was not possible to create a new manufacturer.

 

Version 1.3.1.0

Changes
- It is now possible to type in, and see, more than one path for devices in the settings dialog. The Device Editor will only use the first path entered.
- When saving a plugin as a new file when it was opened from Edit Device in the Project Editor, the username and password is now reset.
Bugs
- When changing the checksum for an in/decrement level sequence, the current type in the checksum popup was not set. Moreover, when finishing the checksum selection the caption was not properly set.
- When a command is using more than two lines in a sequence, scrolling to the bottom, and moving to another sequence, the scrollbar was not reset, so it was possible to scroll beyond the characters.
- In wizard mode, when moving back from RS232 sequences to the first page and forward again an error would occur.
- In wizard mode, when adding extra IR sequences, the sequences were not added to the device although they were learned from the remote control.
- Copy/paste was not working in general text areas.
- When saving a device from the commission section it was only possible to press the same button one time in a row.
- When resizing the window when a command was shown, an error could occur on fast computers.

 

Version 1.3.0.0

New
- New device version (2.10).
- Support for filter and lamp request.
Bugs
- When trying to update, it could not find the installed Neets Product Updater.

 

Version 1.2.2.0

Bugs
- When using wizard mode to make a “Plasma screen”, “Receiver” or “Scaler” device, some information in the device was missing which could lead to an error.
- The maximum values for several settings in the sequences can now be higher if device is only supported by the newer control systems (device version > 1.90). In addition, some of the minimum values can now be 0.
- Sometimes the last pair in an IR command was not shown correctly, even though it was correct in the device.
- When copying a command and inserting instead of the selected, it looked like the selected was removed, but it was still in the device so when showing the sequence the next time the previous selected text was still there.
- When testing RS232 commands, the answer could be incorrect. If having a reply containing bytes above standard ASCII values ‘7F’ the byte was shown as ‘?’ (‘3F’).
- When having a small screen resolution, scrollbars did not appear which makes it impossible to see all the content in some settings.
- When RS232/LAN settings was shown and is ready to write in the header/footer and then create a new sequence it jumps to the correct settings, but when start writing, the entered text is written in the ribbon. Now it has focus in the first command.
- In Windows XP, when saving a device and the name of the device contains invalid characters an error could occur.
- When learning IR codes that is RC5 format the data was not inserted in the field.
Changes
- The design tab now opens by default when editing commands.
- Some help files are updated.
- It is no longer possible to make a new “Type” of device.

 

Version 1.2.1.0

New
- Support for changing the LAN protocol between TCP and UDP.
- Tooltips is added in the menu, to make it easier to preview all the functions.
- Shortcuts for inserting CR and LF are added. Press Ctrl+Enter for CR when in a text field and Shift+Enter for LF.
Bugs
- The repeat time for an IR level down command was not saved.
- The repeat time for an RS232/RS485/LAN level down command was not saved when continuous.
- The repeat time for an RS232/RS485/LAN level command was not saved when in/decrement.
- If you select some text in a command field and paste some other, it looks like the selected text is removed, but if you go to another sequence and back again, the old text and the new text is there. If you delete the text first, it worked.
- Optimization on the warnings shown when making in/decrement level sequences.
Changes
- When testing in/decrement sequences you are now informed that the checksum is not calculated before sending.
- When editing an in-/decrement sequence with a checksum and/or count byte(s), it would remove the setting. Now it only removes it if there is not enough bytes for checksum bytes and/or count bytes.

 

Version 1.2.0.0

New
- New device version (2.00)
- Support for byte delay.
Bugs
- If you follow these steps a device file could be overwritten.
1) Open an existing device. 2) Go to RS232. 3) Create a new device. 4) You are asked if you want to save the changes, select no. 5) Create a new source in RS232. 6) Save the device, then the previous was overwritten.
- An error occurred when IR learning the 2. Command for a source sequence.

Changes
- Labeling and help files changed from RS232 to RS232/RS485.

 

Version 1.1.1.0

New
- You can now see version history (this document) in the Device Editor.
- It is now possible to right click on a sequence and rename or delete it.
Bugs
- When making a new device from a template, it was not possible to learn IR due to an error in the template.
- If a sequence is selected, and you collapse the parent node, and right click on it and create a new sequence an error occurred.
- When changing/deleting a character in an inc/decrement command that has a volume count defined, the cursor moves to the first character that is not a part of the header.
- If you created an inc/decrement sequence with the settings String and Decimal, and used a negative count value, you would see a warning that the count byte was not valid.
- The manufacturer list and type list was sometimes empty. It is now checked.
- It was not possible to use special characters (e.g. 16:9, 4:3) in the name of a sequence.
- It was not possible to click Cancel when making a new sequence.
- If the value of a delay was empty in a device, it could cause an error.

 

Version 1.1.0.0

- New device version (1.90)
- Support for multiple in/decrement sequences.
Bugs
- If a count format in an inc/decrement sequence was selected as hexadecimal, it could cause an error when using it in the Project Editor.
- It was possible to create a new sequence with the same name as one already existing.
- The TCP port maximum value was 9999.
- When opening an existing device that was user approved and made a change, you were prompted several times, if this device is still user approved.
