I'm really new to JP1 and I am trying to modify the remote section of my PAL(UK) Slingmedia box to control the timer function of my Philips DVDR70 DVD recorder.
I have downloaded and installed RMv1.66, the RMD file v1.25, and Sun Java RTE v5.0 and have the Philips DVDR70 1125_2330.rmdu file in the Upgrades folder.

When I start the RemoteMaster.jar, I get the following errors, but the program does seem to start OK.


java.io.FileNotFoundException: F:\sling\remotes\Images\Anthem.map (The system cannot find the path specified)

I change the remote to 'Slingbox with UEI RV chip' and get the following errors:

I seem to get the same errors - no matter which remote I select from the drop-down list.

I then use File>open>Philips rmdu file. and am able to see the codes in the Functions Tab and a button list under
the Buttons Tab, but when I go to the Layout tab I just get a row of buttons without a picture of a remote.

Can anyone tell me if something is fundamentally wrong - or is it just my inexperience??

many thanks.

You didn't follow the installation instructions. Specifically, you didn't download and unzip the Images and Maps.

This error doesn't render RM useless, it just prevents the Layout tab from working. You can use the Buttons tab instead of the Layout tab to assign functions to buttons as you like.

Greg,

Thank you very much for your prompt and accurate reply - of course you were quite correct, I hadn't followed the instructions - but then, I'm an electrical engineer - what do you expect!!
