I have yet again updated the scripts. This time, the Motorola 6200 scripts are updated to reflect the ability to tune to a channel over FireWire using AV/C commands. There are Tune to Channel scripts and Record on Channel scripts. I realize not all Comcast systems using the Motorola 6200 use the same channels; however, there are online tools for decimal to hex conversion to change the first two or three digits before the "FFFF" in the two scripts for each channel. Then, it is just a matter of changing the filenames to match up with the local system numbers.
From the Tips page...
14._ Presently, the AppleScripts used to tune the channels on the Motorola 6200 cannot tune a channel ending with "0" meaning that the Motorola 6200 Timer should be used to schedule such channels in terms of efficiency, arguably._ This is a problem with the Motorola 6200 firmware._ Alternatively, the all script workaround is to tune to an adjacent channel and then use either the Channel Up script or the Channel Down script._ This workaround requires more steps than using the Motorola 6200 Timer._ To schedule from iCal for a channel ending in zero assuming VirtualDVHS and AVC Browser are not running, first run the Enable Tune to Channel script, then the Tune to Channel (adjacent channel) script, then either the Channel Up or Channel Down script depending on what adjacent channel is tuned, then the Record script to begin recording and then the Stop and Quit script script to end recording._ Because of the Motorola bug, five scripts are needed for the all script workaround._ Using the Motorola 6200 Timer, only two scripts are required.
15._ The Record on Channels AppleScripts are Launch and Record plus Enable Tune to Channel plus Tune to Channel (specific channel)._ Remember Tip #14, however._ The Stop and Quit AppleScript must be run afterwards in order to run another Record on Channels AppleScript._ Otherwise, run the Tune to Channel script for a specific channel followed by the Record script.
16._ Tune to Channel AppleScripts only work after having clicked on the field to the right of the AV/C Command button on the AV/C Device: DCT-6200 window, causing the field to have a blue outline.
17._ Instead of Tip #16, run the Enable Tune to Channel AppleScript._ Only run this script once during the session when both VirtualDVHS and AVC Browser are running.Updated the Tips page for edits and organization
