I was starting to get worried when I saw all the references to MLGC777ES. That was the old plug-in that was written to emulate what the MLCX777ES plug-in was doing. The MLGC777ES plug-in is now obsolete and all users of that plug-in should switch over to the new MLCX777ES plug-in. This one supports two-way communication and event triggers. Works equally well with either PC or GC100 serial ports.

Dave,

About the B&K. I want to control 3 pieces of B&K equipment, but am out of serial ports on the GC100. One of the reasons I switched to the GC100 is that my Dell XPS is running XP64 OS. I have not been able to find any serial port replicators/expanders that have drivers for XP64. The GC100 is a great solution, but only has two serial ports. Questions are: is there any word "out there" on when a serial expansion unit will be available for the GC100, 2. Can you "stack" GC100's in order to get more serial ports and 3. does anyone know if there are any serial port replicators that work with XP64 yet?

Thanks, bap

Brian,

I haven't heard the status on the Expansion units for the GC-100.

You can add multiple GC-100's to your network though.

Dave:
I've replaced the beta version w/ver. 2.5.17 and note that "activetrack" returns skip from 9 to 16. I recall a similar problem with the early beta that was not due to my own errors.
Thanks for all your work to integrate ML with the CX777.

I thought I got rid of all those math errors. I'll check and post another update if necessary.

Hi Mario and all

If by expansion you mean the additional modules which can be configured on the GC-100-12 an 18, I spoke to Robin Ford,VP Business Development
from Global Cache and he told me explicitly:

"The expansion modules are not available yet, but are our top development priority. We will announce their availability next year, but for present requirements it is best to plan with existing products"

Talking to other guy in Cinemar, I have been told that modules will be available late next year but confirm that GC-100-12 will support a total of 4 serial ports and GC-100-18., 7 serial ports but with limitations at seria speed.

Hope this helps

Subject: RE: Support request from globalcache.com: GC-100-12 vs. GC-100-18


Hi again Enrique:



I meant to say…



The GC-100-12 will support up to 4* serial ports when the serial expansion modules are available (2 built in + 2 modules).



The GC-100-12 will support up to 7* serial ports when the serial expansion modules are available (2 built in + 5 modules),



Keep in mind (particularly for systems with more modules), that there will be a finite amount of bandwidth (speed) to be shared among the modules in a single enclosure, so that should be considered. We will publish the complete specification when the module design is complete.



Please let us know if we can be of further assistance.

Problems with new version of CX777ES plug-in

Postby Prasad Paranjpe » Thu Dec 15, 2005 5:32 pm

I recently upgraded my HTPC and installed the new plug-in. The CX777ES is directly connected to the HTPC via RS-232 on COM2. I suspect the connection is OK because:

1. Test PowerOn works from the new plug-in
2. DVP-CX777ES RS232 cmd line utility from sourceforge works

The opensource control program allows me to go directly to a disc using the DOS command line utility.

The "trace mode" log in the plug-in shows that it "got commands" from MLserver. The commands used to work on my old HTPC with the old plug-in.

I will try to re-install the old plug-in and see if I can get it working.

Any ideas?

Dave: I know that you have more pressing issues to attend to, but this bothersome track problem still exists. Any help would be appreciated.

I'm still having some activedisc reporting issues with the plugin.

If Disc 100 is playing, activedisc shows 100 - GOOD!
If Disc 344 is playing, activedisc shows 368 - BAD!
If Disc 123 is playing, activedisc shows 135 - BAD!

I'm using V 2.5.18 of the plugin.

Attached is a log clip after sending DiscDirect commands for disc 100, 344, and 123.

The arithmatic issues (active track) I reported on 11/30/05 still remain with ver 2.5.19. In sum, active track correctly reports tracks 1-9, then skips to report "16" when track ten is playing. The log follows.

Version 2.0.43 of the plug-in fixes these issues. You can download the updated plug-in here.

Thanks, Dave, the plugin v. 2.5.44 returns the correct track numbers to the "ActiveTrack" variable. I apologize to all for not posting the lengthy log as an attachment.
