Can UKAS display Extended Info when performing a manual search? If not, is the source available for modification? Any links?

Do you really mean "display"? Or do you mean "have access to"?

Are you thinking about adding CRID stuff in?

The source code is here: http://developer.berlios.de/projects/tap/

web browsable here

I really mean display (by pressing 'i' or the at bottom of the search page). I've been happily using it to search the extended info but SWMBO wants to actually see the info, for 'search-only' text, before deciding to record or not. I wasn't thinking of CRID.

I'm not aware it can display any information on a search result other than what you see immediately.

As for the source code link, you're welcome

UKAutoscheduler is often used in conjunction with EPGNavigator which I believe still requires the Description Extender TAP. If the patch and the TAP are both installed you may find that it breaks EPGNav.

Does anyone know who did the Desc Ext Patch mod to UKAS v0.73.1? Can they please post the updated source code on Berlios.

I have made a minor mod to version 0.73 that I would like to add to the new version. (increased filenames from 30 to 40 characters)

Regards Allen.

Write access to Berlios is restricted so it's quite likely that whoever did the update can't actually feed the changes back. :(

Yes that's the case. User jpuhakka (from tapworld, the guy who has made quite many of the latest fixes/changes) made this change. This is the simplest version of DE patch support, but works well at least here in Finland. Version 0.73.1 does not contain any other changes.

I believe that jpuhakka has been trying to get in contact with AllenG in order to get changes to make merge in code. He does not anyway have write access to Berlios.

Hi Tapper,
jpuhakka has made contact thanks.
My code change was minor, a single character to be exact!

SimonC has updated EPGN with support for the De (Description Extender) patch. Also I have found the bug that occurs in some firmwares where the TAP sometimes fails to launch with the Guide key. I have a working TAP, and will try and get SimonC and Dave (DGB) to include the changes in the next "official release". Check out the EPGN thread for updates.

If anyone uses RT data and would like to be a Guinea Pig for my mod of UKAS to show extended info at the buttom of the (manual) search screen, then PM me for a copy. I've always wanted this modification when performing manual searches as you couldn't see any detail beyond the short info. If required I shall pass on the changes to the 'custodian/s'.

After making some changes this morning, I discovered that UKAS only displayed 39 of my 60 searches.

The changes I made, in order, were:-
1) Download Extend 1.6h (mentioned for completeness - I don't think it
had anything to do with the problem experienced)
2) Use Fastscangui to rescan the channels (to get Film4 channel change)
3) Download a copy of ChunkyWizard's Logo.dat file (after noticing that UKAS didn't display the correct logos against some of the rescanned channels)

When subsequently testing UKAS, I noticed that the bottom search entries were missing ...

Looking at the UKAutosearch.dat file, I could see that it still contained information for all 60 searches. I noticed that the first missing search entry scanned from 0001 to 0020 (BBC1 to previous Film4). Changed the 0020 to 0001 using Notepad and replaced file on Toppy. Stopped/restarted UKAS and it picked up some more searches. Recovered all searches by editing two other 0020 values.

As far as i can tell, problem was caused because Film4 moved from 32 (0020 Hex) to 15 and, after the rescan, channel 32 does not exist!
