Just in case anyone is developmentally breathing and is still dependent on these awesome devices...
i have 5 vgp-xl1b's on xp and both apps (freechng and gui 058) run beautifully if i have 3 changers connected, but when the 4th AND/OR 5th changer get connected, the apps hang and give buggy errors...(latest freechng and latest gui)
gui 058 doesn't even list all changers when more than 3 are in the system and the one that does show up is not controllable.
freechng when selecting any changer but the first listed changer in dropdown...
"freechng" error window ---------- " is not a valid integer value ----------
if i run only 3 changers at a time, i can manipulate any without errors. All are running latest firmware and run great with imgburn.
I have been running beautifully in xp mce sp3...i run wunkoNAS (with quite a bit of wunkonas config manipulation (issues with number of changers present, but serves from all after indexing completed) and I usually use au3 scripts with the mediachanger.exe app to do mass commands.
my biggest use of freechng is for the onboard index control (NVRAM) it offers. the gui is nice, but rarely used for much.
