File format of cfg show files?


Recommended Posts

I was trying to figure out what times I had set my show to run off on particular days and decided to look at the s1config.cfg and s2config.cfg files.

 

Using notepad and wordpad were worthless..  :)  I used an old program I have called XtreeGold..  It let me look at the files in hex format, which provided lots of information.  Here's an example of the beginning of my s1config.cfg file and s2config file.

 

S1CONFIG.CFG

25 02 01 01  02 00 00 00  17 00 22 30  17 00 22 30

17 00 22 30  17 00 22 30  17 00 22 30  00 00 00 00

00 00 00 00  00 00 00 00  00 00 00 00  00 00 00 00

...

 

S2CONFIG.CFG

25 02 01 01  02 00 00 00  00 00 00 00  00 00 00 00

00 00 00 00  00 00 00 00  00 00 00 00  17 00 23 00

17 00 23 00  00 00 00 00  00 00 00 00  00 00 00 00

...

 

 

I knew I had set different times for Friday and Saturday, so it seems the s1config.cfg is for Sun - Thu and s2config.cfg is for Friday and Saturday.  The start and stop times for each day are listed:  Start time of 17:00, End time of 22:30.  Pretty straight forward.

 

I decided to just change the s1config.cfg to an end time of 22:00 instead of 22:30 with the hex editor.  Seems to have worked for me.

 

Can anyone tell me what the first 8 characters before that are?  The "25 02 01 01  02 00 00 00"?  I thought it might be number of sequences, but I have 27 so I figured that's not it unless it's broken into a 25 and 2.  Two of the numbers might be the start and stop of the SxCONFIG.CFG files.

 

Thanks,

Roger

I currently have 2 sd cards both with existing shows ( that all related data to create has been lost).  I would like to take the config file of the biggest show and modify to accept the other songs that are listed on the little show.  Can you advise.
