Hi all - just a quickie.

Is there a way from within a TAP to detect what machine you're running on, i.e. 5800, 5810 or some other? That is, the hardware rather than the firmware level from _appl_version.

I'm sure it's an obvious thing, but I've been away from this for a while and at the moment it escapes me.

Cheers

Nic

EDIT: It's just the sysid, isn't it? 456 = 5800, 457 = 5810. Is there any ambiguity in there? I.e. could other models have those ids?

Apologies for being dim.

The function is Get_Toppy_Temperature_Celcius and if > 100 then it is defo a 5810 Laughing

PS Don't forget the 458 id of the facelift 5800.

So, 456 and 458 = 5800. 457 and an ability to roast chicken = 5810. Got it.

Cheers

Nic

Not etirely sure if it's relevant, but I thought I'd better mention this -

Quote:
The SysID 456 [Sy] patch makes any Toppy report itself as SysID 456, which is the main version of the TF5800. This may be necessary in order to run certain TAPs on some newer TF5800 (and the redesigned TF5800PVRt) models which have been assigned SysID 458 instead

Good lateral thinking neilpercy but despite the different IDs the two machines are for all intents and purposes the same. As long as one can tell when they have the 'new-and-improved' machine-from-hell* they should be fine.

* 5810

Thanks for that Neil, Glen. I guess I can still go by the SysID - anyone who's flashed a 5810 with [Sy] will be playing their own game anyway.

Cheers

You mean anyone who's installed [Sy] on a 5800T ... and I believe that's standard in the recommended firmware Wink.

No, I really do mean a 5810.

I'm trying to differentiate between a 5810 and other 5800 based models. If I check the SysID, I'll get:

457 for a 5810
456 for a 5800 or a [Sy]ed TF5800PVRt
458 for a non-[Sy]ed TF5800PVRt (and some other 5800s?)

That's basically enough for me to differentiate in the way I need.

If anyone's put [Sy] on a 5810 (which I'm not even sure is possible) then it'll report as a 5800, and my TAP won't work as well. But if they've done that, they'll have reasons which are probably beyond me as the 'umble TAP writer to predict. I think the best I can do is warn people that may happen in the docs.

Cheers

Nic
