I've tried iremote and it didn't work... the installation installed well, but when you launch it, it said that this phone is not supported...

Unfortunately, my IRDA stopped working, i'm not sure if it is consecutive or not, but i have some doubt that removing this app remove some piece of software that drive irda functions...

I put my ref in the dedicated thread, but no niew for the time being.... it is a bit long now!!
I believe there is a mix between two pb :
-the irda "red light".."visible" throgh plastic transparency/short battery life (???)
-the REAL irda pb when it don't work, like in my case: THIS IS THE PB!


Let me propose a way to check software : one guy with a working software under last version could list all the files he hold on the sendo, on a pc,... I mean by using a file editor, listing all the hierarchy, all the folders and all the files, in order to compare a non working irda sendo x to check if all the piece of software are there... or if anybody knox directly where to check?...please let me know!!!
For other problem solution or piece of soft missing it should work?

What i can insure is that my sendo has never been hurt nor dropped, and therefore i can not think it is an hardware pb, i principally rely on a piece of soft missing...

i do not read russian, so i can't comment with the exception of what does a thread about SX-1 connectivity have to do with the Sendo X IRDA issue?

I get the same results as Mark:

No

No

Yes

(plus others) - this is tested on two different firmware versions...both with IRDA working)

stu , are the files under z: drive editable ?

i am tring to find if total irremote has made modifications to the IR stack / config

i am using a utility called UNmakeSIS to extract all the files from the IRRemote App to check if it made any changes to the system.

Unfortunately it's not possible to edit anything on the Z drive. If an application wants to over-write a system setting, it must store the file in the relevent location on the C drive. *supposedly* the phone will look to C before Z for any particular file. (don't quote me on that, it may be wrong)

Damn I wish I had read this forum last week, I just ordered a new battery because I was only getting around 18 hours life with no usage, bugger bugger bugger!

Right, I have investigated the IR led on my X using my Olympus digital camera, which is IR sensitive, and I have the IR/battery-life problem.

Now the LED comes on as soon as the power switch is pushed! This suggests to me that it is a hardware problem and cannot have anything to do with the firmware. Somehow a flaw on the circuit board is allowing voltage to leak to the IR LED. Not good at all!

It seems therefore that the only available course of action to stop the problem is remove the LED. What a stinker?

Damn I wish I hadn't bought this phone.

Damn Sendo/Expansys for suckering me into buying one of their "special offer" phones - "stock dumping" more like because they knew they were going t*ts up!

Oh well never mind. We live and learn.

Joe

As stated before, this is a software problem with the last two firmware releases (1.98.5.2 and 1.198.8.2).

Unfortunately this is proving very awkward to fix, as no-one has access to the Sendo souce code any more, but we ARE trying to come up with some things to fix this.

More news as we find it out...
