HELP WITH SOFTWARE? (for REMstar Pro)
I'm new at this game and have a Remstar Pro C-Flex+ machine. I was told that there is software available that would give me efficacy information. I've tried loading Sleepyhead but can't get it to work. Not having efficacy information is like having a scale with no readout.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thank you.

Does your machine say "Philips Respironics" or just "Respironics?"

If it says Philips, you may just need the lastest version of SleepyHead, 0.9.3. Check the link in my signature line to get the right version.

If not, check here at the bottom to find out what machine you have and report back.

Get the free SleepyHead software here.
Useful links.

If it's midnight and a DME tells you it's dark outside, go and check it yourself.

Hi cpaprap. I have the same machine, and I can tell you that it _does_ work with SleepyHead. However, you do need the latest version to be able to read the data. Furthermore, the main SourceForge page for SleepyHead does not link to the latest version with the big green download button. You need to make sure you have version 9.3 (the latest as I write this), which has a file name like SleepyHead-0.9.3-beta-win32-setup.exe. If you are reading this, the easiest way is to click on archangle's link in his/her signature above. Alternately, from the main SleepyHead SourceForge page, select "Browse All Files" right below the download button and look for the latest version.

Good luck.

Thanks for the help! Unfortunately I still haven't gotten anywhere with Sleepyhead. I did as suggested, downloaded the software from the earlier post. I do have the file from your post but ----

It must be my system, XP Pro, lots of memory, etc. When I try to open Sleepyhead the program comes up. I try to load data and nothing happens, t when I check with Task Manager I get an error message - not responding.

I uninstalled the program and manually edited the registry in case I had a corrupted key. On re-install I get the same message.

My machine will not even recognize the SD card from the REMstar.

By now I saying "bracka fricka brackarack" or something close to that.

Any other ideas will be apprecoated.
