Sent: Wednesday, December 3, 2003 19:35:24 From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Richard Seymour) Here is a patch kit for Meade's newest Autostar firmware, version v31Ee. File: patchv31e4.zip This kit adds the 45O4/114EQ to the Autostar's known models list, as well as the usual features of my kits: Display and Edit Training Results, automatic start of satellite tracking, ability to turn Cord Wrap OFF for all models. Please read the included README.txt and the first portion of the patch31e4.txt files for instructions. The kit also includes two additional, optional patch files. One allows you to access punctuation and lowercase characters when you are entering object names at the keypad (such as Comets or Satellites), and the other, totally weird, allows you to skip the time/date entry at power-up. The only folks who should use that are people interested in -totally- hands-off (remote) Autostar operation. If you would prefer to pick-and-choose individual patches (for example, you have a DS-70, which my kit "steals"), you can use Chris Carson's Updater "StarPAtch", which provides that feature (it is a free download from his StarGPS site: http://www.stargps.ca (<-- yes, ca not com) This patch kit is fully compatible with Autostar Suite's Remote Handbox have fun --dick
