View Full Version : VCR+ programming software

Anyone know of a program that can make up vcr+ codes? Looking for one that will run on OSX or XP. Something simple where I can enter the channel and time and it will make the code. Just too much of a hassle to go on tvguide.com all the time especially when there is only dial up at home.

Here's one for windows: VCRPlus (http://www.winsite.com/bin/Info?500000004681)
Note that the VCR Plus+ algorithm is secret and so far (AFAIK) has only been deciphered for channels 1-64 starting on the hour or on the half hour exactly and for lengths in multiples of 30 minutes.
Here's a paper on it: Decoding a VCR Controller Code (http://www.tinaja.com/third/vcrplus.pdf) (PDF)
