Default New Channel Logo/Voice Updater 09282006-01 (New 9-29-2006)

(New) 9-29-2006 9:45a

A new Logo/Voicetag updater is provided, accurate to Sept 28th. Some new genres (Such as English Premier Soccer) are not posted yet. However, things like Nascar and a fixed "The Vault" is.

Do realize that you will lose custom wallpapers if they conflict. However, many GIDs (Genre IDs) are changed anyway, so it's likely some of yours already don't work.

Please note that you can safely delete your Images and Spoken dirs in \System as these are COMPLETE sets. If you don't know how to do this, don't bother as it isn't required.

For the Windows Users: http://www.gwi.net/~droobie/S50Update0928200601.exe

For the Mac Users and the Experts: http://www.gwi.net/~droobie/S50Update0928200601.zip

I already have the new logos and voicetags for the new channels and the modified ones.

With this in mind, I don't have the new virtual channel table until the update hits. Rest assured I will post a new updater once I have that table. I should have it around 5am when the update blast hits.

These logos have NOT been committed to the S50 Factory Update table.

Unlike previous versions of the updater, I may offer a full update to sync up to this point, that way you will all have the same thing I do and we can update ANY unit both new and old. It will make the file bigger (about 7mb I think), but all in all a better solution.

See you all after the channel update.

NOTE: Please note that the rumor on GetSiriusInfo and some other places regarding them adding two Canadian music channels has not happened. I looked specifically for these channel logos and VTs and they were not available at this time. Not to say it WON'T happen, just to say not going to happen today.

---

Ok, I'm now providing a full Images/Spoken set to make life easier on everyone. You could have various stages of logos, so this is the way to go.

The auto-updater will automatically weed out the channels that are now defunct (such as Sirius Advice, EWTN Espanol, etc.). It is a little bigger, 7.5mb roughly, but worth it comparatively. It will overwrite your custom logos or any VT mods, so make sure you have copies of them ahead of time to resurrect them if you feel a need to, or disassemble my ZIP version and manually modify your S50.

FIX: Because of some logos I missed, I rolled the version to 04. If you grabbed version 03, please update with this release.

FIX #2: Because of the new Voicetags made by talent for each music stream, I have refreshed this package with a new link. If you had 04, you should now get 04-02.
.
Auto-Updater Version (Will Delete Old Logos/VTs Too):
(( Superceded, see Above Post ))

ZIP Version (for Mac Users and Advanced Users):
(( Superceded, see Above Post ))

A BIG Shoutout to Great Works (My ISP) for continuing to put up with my nonsense. Anyone who's dated me knows I'm not always the easiest person to get along with.

Was hauling some big ass to get this one up.. This is the first time I've had to script in removal of the existing logos. As soon as the new table hit I was table to get things done. 2 Hours later, here we is..

That's super easy, droobie. Much thanks.

Will I have the new Howard background when it's done?

Yep you absolutely should because the wallpaper is in the dirs that I'm providing. The only thing I am NOT providing is basically your content you have put onto the unit (songs, etc.).

great work droobie

I think you and me_rubin should work together to create a information file that gets stored on the S50 to indicate which files are customized, so your updater could respect that. And then let me know, I'm still working on my own stuff

I try to cater to the masses that pretty much want the thing to work. The easier solution would be an easy way to bring back your custom files from within his software if they're updated.

Droobie, as easy as you have made this updater, I am having a little trouble. My S50 shows up as the G:\ and when I put that in it says G:\ is not accessible. Thanks for your help

I guess my home dock would not sync properly with my computer. When I opened MSS while docked with the home dock it just said connecting and would not sync up. I think I remember reading about people having problems with this when the home docks first came out. I got everything to work with the usb that came with the S50 itself though. Thanks for such a great program.

Thank you Droobie. I had MSS hooked up this morning to update, but I'm not going to bother. I'll just assume that Sirius can't manage to do this themselves and rely on you instead!

Do the new channels have wallpapers/voice tags yet?

What do they look like?

I can't wait to get home this evening to check 'em out.

Yes I provided any wallpapers or voicetags. None of the new channels seem to have their own wallpaper, they use the default for the genre they're in. I did provide ALL the voicetags however.

I think the Blue Collar Comedy logo is garbage, too dark. But I don't make em, just provide em.
