Hi,

The SwapDV application allows you to manage your own digital video library, based on content backed up from from your replay TV. It combines the functionality of a replay client (Yet Another Replay Client), a replay server (Yet Another Replay Server) and a replay guide editor :)

The application is for all platforms.

A small feature list:
* connect to a replay TV and browse its contents
* download mpegs (raw/modified)
* save and edit guides (raw/header stripped)
* import digital video into your local server, either from your replay TV or from your disk
* edit, add, remove shows and channels
* emulate a replayTV box on your local network
* "real" replay TVs can play back videos from your server



SwapDV 0.5 and source code released. Go to http://swapdv.sourceforge.net to download the new version and/or sources
Aha! This could be what I'm looking for. I wasn't looking for your nifty opportunity to transfer shows between RTV and PC, though I may try that eventually. What I need is something much simpler, which may be a minor feature of your creation, the guide editor.

ReplayTV doesn't subscribe to the Canadian TV listings (even though their supplier, Tribune, does have them available. But if I could somehow reassign the Buffalo or Niagara Falls cable stations to the channels they are received on for the Toronto cable system, I'd have all but a few stray channels accessible with up-to-date program guides! So what I'm hoping to be able to do is regularly download a neighbor-town's listings, edit the guide to reassign the channel numbers as they occur locally in Canada, and then send the edited guide back to the ReplayTV. Would I be able to use SwapDV to do that? I know it's not your primary goal, but if it works as a side effect you can make many people happy!

Nope. You're talking about the CHANNEL GUIDE listings. I'm not aware of any way to edit those. SwapDV allows you to edit your PC's REPLAY GUIDE listing. This is the list of recorded shows stored on your PC. Not the kind of "guide editor" you're asking for...

Ah, yes, I see. Thanks.

So that means this particular application allowsRePlay Guide editting (on the PC) and not Channel Guide editting. For those who have played around with these issues, though, does it at least seem like Channel Guide editting might be do-able?

No. There is very little accessible information on the replay (accept for the shows and replay guide) and no easy way (short of taking the HDD out?) of getting at the channel listings stored in the replay. Even if you could remotely access the listings, work out how it was structured (no trivial task), work out how to edit it correctly with new information, there doesn't appear to be any way of putting the channel guide back.

I'd ask ReplayTV (or rather Sonic Blue) for some support with your problem.

Cheers
Jonathan

That fixed the problem. Thanks.

When I click on the link to download SwapDV, it goes to SourceForge.net with nothing in the window to download.

I look at the SourceForge site for information about SwapDV and see alot of talk, but again, no downloadable files.

Has support for this product been removed?

Thanks
TB

When I download the zip and the expand it using Winzip, I get about 8 files with "0" bytes in each.

Downloaded twice with same results. Downloaded the Compatible version and it exploded fine.

What ups?

I tried it on another PC and worked fine. Found out the version of WinZip I was using was 6.1. Downloaded version 8 and it work fine.

Sorry for the bad case of the Dummas#$%^&.
