WiRNS 1.2.x  

post #1 of 559
Thread Starter 
New update!!!

I know, I know.. A lot of updates. :)

I'm gonna take a rest for a while now unless something comes up.


Win9x/ME/NT/2K/XP:
http://www.users.qwest.net/~bolenbau...2.0.WinAll.msi


IMPORTANT!!! Do NOT Upgrade if you're running a version older than 1.1.2.14760. Too many changes to the database, configuration and application.

Make a backup of your current database and shellcmds if you'd like, and then remove or install to a different directory.

**** If you use the DTV PPV listings, please visit http://www.geocities.com/paglierani and donate.

*** YOU MUST run "wirns.exe -convert" immediately after install if you are running 1.1.5.20152 or older. Otherwise, you'll need to enter IP & DD info again. Replays and other info will not be affected.

Changes since 1.1.2b:

- Added NTP Client since the NTP proxy shuts down the Windows Time service
- Headend Remapper. A sample remapchan.csv.sample file is included which is already setup for 4DTV. Be sure to rename to remapchan.csv.
- Repeat Flag fixed
- Repeat, TV Rating, mpaaRating, year and Stars to Online Channel Guide
- Moved configuration to Registry - run "wirns.exe -convert" to import config settings (IP & DD info for now).
- run "wirns.exe -config" for configuration GUI.
- Added support for DirecTV PPV Listings - Select channels PPV100 - PPV 200 on your Zap2it lineup to trigger. This takes quite a while. Go get some coffee or beer.
- Set your own NTP server IP - registry setting at HKLM\\SOFTWARE\\WiRNS\\configuration\
tpip
- Added the ability to view wirns.log under "Administration" on the web page.
- View wirns.log via WiRNSmon.exe
- Added configuration GUI if WiRNS is not yet configured and you will NOT need to restart. The new config will be loaded immediately. If you mess this up, you can still configure via http://127.0.0.1:8923 and will have to restart WiRNS.
- Added "Edit shellcmds" on the systray menu - WiRNSMon
- Added system tray service monitor/controller for WinNT/2K/XP - WiRNSMon.
- Added threaded Windows service for fast startup and background operation.
- Vacuuming the database runs prior to a guide update.
- Added Last Guide update time on Guideserver page.
- Fixed Dish PPV
- Clear channel lineup prior to guide updates for Zap2it channel changes - no deleting wirns.db for channel changes anymore
- Select number of days to update the Channel Guide

Other changes, see changelog.txt.

Also, be sure to checkout readme.txt & INSTALL.TXT.

Sorry..

Couldn't help but to add the DirecTV Sports listings. Just pick any channel(s) from 700 - 799 on Zap2it.

This is NOT needed.. only if you want to "replay" your sports programs.

*** If you use this, please visit http://www.geocities.com/paglierani and donate..

Lemme know how it works cuz I don't have the pay-per-sports/Season pass thingy.

Hi.

I had this running yesterday:
WiRNS v1.1.4 build 17378 - (c) 2004 kjac

I upgraded today to:
WiRNS v1.2.0 build 24845 - (c) 2004 kjac

I ran the wirns.exe -convert as indicated. But it hangs now after refreshing guide for my third RTV. The service monitor shows green, but no further progress is logged.

Please help?

This update will check if you actually have a DTV lineup before loading DTV PPV & Sports.

Apologies to non-DTV users..

WiRNS combines the lineups. See post after this one and use the channel remapper...

SOmething is wrong here. I did the update, and now my replay won't load the 4DTV data at all. Even if that's the only provider. Bev, and OTA load, but not the 4DTV. Just to chck, below is a few lines form my remapper file.

Ok.. it's gonna be trickier than I thought.. Use this with your current file, but it'll only use the channels (for now)
post #13 of 559
The file date and sizes are the same as the previous files. Wrong Zip?

Deleted the DB, redownloaded the data. the 4DTV still doesn't appear.

Thanks for all the effort. It's really nice to have the 4DTV guide!

That last allowed me to load the guide.
Thanks

It IS a good idea to allow the channel rename. I can think that that would be really handy for wildfeeds and the like. To have the Replay keep a channel active, it requires guide data to come in every, or nearly every update. That's difficult to maintain for placeholder channels, used to occasional, unscheduled video, that is the way of recurring and wildfeeds.

For me, what I intend, is to map a bunch of channels on the zap2it side just to provide placehoders. Then I'd rename/renumber them on the Wirns side to provide slots for the wildfeed locations. If I could just build a table of locations, and repeat a generic program description, I wouldn't need the zap2it channels. But I don't want to get greedy, this is a great service and I'm not trying for programer burnout. :)
post #16 of 559
I think I have given up on getting wirns to work with my replay...I'm sure I'm doing something stupid but I can't figure it out. I setup labs.zap2it.com with my local listings...I setup wirns and my replay...told it "local broadcast listings" at offset 0....changed the reply to use dns1 as the ip of the pc running wirns...I can see in the log that wirns is getting called however everytime I use wirns it gets a network error when getting channel information (84040005 or something like that)....connecting without wirns works ok.

I've had same results with 1.1.7 - 1.2.1

A couple of things to check. is the WiRNS IP on the primary IP of your NIC? If you're running xp sp2, have you checked the firewall settings? Do you have another firewall?
post #18 of 559
My router is on 192.168.1.1
My replay is at 192.168.1.15
My pc is at 192.168.1.3

I run kerio personal firewall on the pc which is xp sp2...the windows firewall is disabled.....I said yes to the popup's requesting access from the replay to the pc....the log shows the nosoftwareupdate plugin is being "loaded" and the "hijacking frontend request because we serve it locally" message...I can click on the channel guide in wirns and see the channels...and on the replay I've tried changing just the dns and changing both the dns AND the gateway to be 192.168.1.3....then saved that change..then went back in and changed the zip to force it to reload. Everytime I get the network error I mentioned. I thought it might be because the isp I'm using has certain ports blocked but I tried another that doesnt and the same error occured. (my router makes a dial up connection but shares it via nat)

The fancy-robust, etc.. Headend channel remapper is fixed.

Accurate based on the origional Zap2it channel AND callsign...

All 4 fields are required, but the old & new callsigns do not have to be different.

Sample:
#IMPORTANT - the ReplayTV will automatically remap channels in the 8000-9000 range and may with others as well.
#FORMAT old_channel,old_callsign,new_channel,new_callsign

Ok... Can you disable Kerio and test? If you're nat'ing back to your PC, you shouldn't need the firewall.

Make sure you have these settings:

Replay:
IP 192.168.1.15
Subnet Mask <whatever you have it at>
Gateway 192.168.1.1 <shouldn't matter since the PC will proxy requests>
DNS1 & DNS2 192.168.1.3

PC
IP 192.168.1.3
WiRNSIP 192.168.1.3 <Must be primary IP on NIC>
Subnet Mask <whatever you have it at>
Gateway 192.168.1.1
DNS1 & DNS2 <set by ISP>

IT'S J.M.'S FAULT!!!

He forwarded me his DNS proxy code... So, I couldn't help it..

Here it is... No more need for micro_dns.dll and the DNS proxy will bind to any IP that is configured for your wirns IP (hopefully valid, of course).

Please test & lemme know what you think...


nevermind.. it should work with ivsproxy

OoooKay. I may need a few more words to understand what I would do to test this. Am I looking for something different? Or is it an internal code thingee that I won't see, but is reall hot darn cool?

yup.. it's internal... and it won't load micro_dns.dll.

I loaded on one of my pc's with several IP's & set the wirns IP to the secondary, then ran nslookups from another & worked fine.

Necessary, no. Fun, YES!
post #24 of 559
rbolen70....

First, I want to say its great to see you expanding on the great work kjac has done!!!

Second, I loaded up the newest vers. of WiRNS and it seemed to be working ok but then I checked my guide data and I had a lot of "no info avail" for some channels. Also, I noticed the channelguideprovider.dll was not loading on boot up. So to troubleshoot I uninstalled and reinstalled an older vers. (the last one kjac released) and everything works fine. I was just wondering where I might be encountering the problem.

Oh btw, I've been running WiRNS now for several months without problem if thats any help.

Anyway, as I said I think its great what you are doing. Keep up the good work.

Thanks! Because of the channel mapping, etc... There will be some "blank spots" in the guide data if you didn't start over with a new lineup. (deleting wirns.db).. This should go away after a little while... or if you delete the databse.

Way cool! Now I can turn the transparent web proxy through squid back on in my firewall and WiRNS will bypass the proxy for guide data. Thank you kindly. And thanks to j.m., too!

Ok, I'll try deleting the database.

Oh, I know this has been asked before, but any chance of PPV listings for Bell ExpressVu?
post #28 of 559
Ryan:

Is the installer download on page 1 of this thread the latest and greatest? I did find one later executable which I swapped out. Maybe that is my problem.

I have gone through 3-4 installs and have had the same results each time. I am running WinXP Pro. Static IP is set for WiRNS and for each of my RTV's. All settings are verified and seem to be correct.

1... The Dishnetwork PPV listings don't show (No Information Available). I think that my configuration entry is good. I have inserted "Dish Network" and "DishNetwork" at various times, thinking that it may be text related. My timezone is Eastern. Are these entries case-sensitive or gramattically sensitive?

2... After a seemingly good install, I left WiRNS running for about 24hrs. I did a system reboot after that. The WiRNS monitor and service started automatically. All seemed well. However, the channelguideprovider.dll plugin did not load. All functions seemed to work as they should. I'm wondering if this was a false error message.

I appreciate the work which you and kjac have done on my behalf.

Regards,

Wayne
