Hi Stu's TV, PM received! Unfortunately I have never tried using Antares on Windows 10, so I might not be very helpful in diagnosing your problems, at least not at the moment. I've spent the last few years in the USA for work, away from my Toppy. I just recently got back to Australia, so I now final...

The Windows 7 X64 part isn't a problem. See this url for how to run Altair (or even better, Antares) under 64-bit Windows.

That's great work AndersG, thank you! I'll include it in the next release.
In the mean time, here is a test version that I just compiled, so you can see the results of your hard work: antares_1_1_test3.zip.

Hey ingrex, There won't be many other TRF7160 users on this forum, unfortunately, since I don't think this model is sold outside of Australia. (You're in Australia, right?). As much as I hate to suggest it, you might like to try posting on the itopfield.com.au forums. For what it's worth, I have own...

Thank you johnniegif! I like feedback like that :)
It's a little bit sad to think of all the people who are still suffering with Altair :wink:

TopfHDRW will read / recover Toppy hard drives. I haven't tried to use it to recover deleted files, but it's probably your only hope. Actually that probably won't work in this case. The TRF-2460 is a TMS (high definition) model, and as far as I'm aware TopfHDRW only works for standard definition to...

I'm reluctant to install Antares as I'd rather not install MS .net and Visual C on my work PC (or my home one come to that). Just thought I should mention that Windows 7 comes with the .net libraries already installed, so you wouldn't need to install that to use Antares. As for the Visual C++ prere...

Hey halibut, I think I got the timestamp thing working. Here is the latest executable if you want to try it out: antares_1_1_test2.zip For example, to set the timestamp: antares datestamp \DataFiles\Thingy.rec 201201021801 To print it without setting it: antares datestamp \DataFiles\Thingy.rec print

Ah, I see. Okay then, when I get a chance I'll see if that theory about using resume mode works. If so, it will be easy to add that as a command line option.

halibut, Here's a link to a new Antares executable which includes a simple rename command: antares_1_1_test1.zip . For example: antares rename \DataFiles\QA.rec "Q and A.rec" You need to specify the full path for the source file, but you don't have to for the destination filename. I'm not ...

Hi Halibut, There's no command line option to rename files at the moment, but I plan to add one. I haven't quite decided how I'll do it yet. It would be nice to roll it into the mv option, but the mv syntax supports some pretty sophisticated stuff, like wildcards, recursion, and exclusions. It would...

ccs, Thanks for sending the logs! I think the problem is as follows. When Antares receives a file from the PVR, it knows how many bytes to expect, because the size of the file is specified in the directory listing. If Antares receives more bytes than it expects, it truncates the file at the expected...
