can use fine tuning. On the screen labeled Code Set Selection (or Cable
Box Brand), hit Zones. This will give you a screen with fine tune
adjustments. The values for General Instruments DCT-1000 and DCT-2000
boxes is as follows (from the AT&T preconfigured Replay boxes):
Enable Fine Tuning: Yes
Send Enter: Yes
Minimum digits to send: 3
Inter-action delay: 0400ms
Response delay: 0200ms
Pre-command delay: 0400ms
Inter-command delay: 0401ms
For Scientific Atlanta boxes, all you need to do is send the number
of digits that your cable box displays (for analog boxes, Minimum
digits to send is 2, for digital 3).
If you are tweaking for your own device, here's what we think each item means (SOME OF THESE ARE GUESSES):
- Send Enter
- Determines whether or not to send the Enter key on your cable box or satellite receiver's remote
- Minimum digits to send
- Let's say you are trying to go to channel 2. If MDTS is 0 or
1, Replay will send "2". If it's 2, it will send "02". If it's 3 it
will send "002" and so on.
- Inter-action delay
- This is the time between the pressing of each digit.
Increasing this number often helps if you are dropping digits
(recording channel 13 instead of 123).
- Response delay
- Puts up a black screen while doing the channel change so you
don't see the blue "no video signal" screen. It is completely safe to
monkey with this value, decreasing it to see more of your show or
increasing it so you don't see the channel banner generated by your
satellite receiver or digital cable box.
- Pre-command delay
- How long Replay waits between sending a wake up signal and the
first digit. Increase this if your box often misses the first digit in
a channel change.
- Inter-command delay
- This one is a bit unclear. Is it the time between the last
digit and Enter? Not really sure. One thing I have noticed, though, is
that this value seems to always be greater than or equal to the
Inter-action delay in every set of good codes.
