Origin of Inspiration and Expiration times: the Resmed files or an OSCAR derivation?

Origin of Inspiration and Expiration times: the Resmed files or an OSCAR derivation?
I may have overlooked a VAuto-generated data file with I and E times. 

Is there such a file among the constellation of PLD and BRP  and other sleep session files? Otherwise, it appears one must rely on either OSCAR's presentation of I and E times--from a complete up-loadable sleep session dataset, if you have such--or derive I and E times from the BRP Flow rate and pressure file. Please advise.

I'll let Resmed experts weigh in, but I believe Resmed does provide some sort of I and E values, unlike PRS1 (for which OSCAR generates its own).

The Vauto PLD file has an IE ratio, and B5TI and B5TE times, and a Ti time which we don't use. I haven't investigated what it represents or how it is different from the B5TI time.
The Autoset doesn't have any of those four signals.

A far overdue "thank" you, pholynyk. 

'Was beating a dead horse trying to get that time info from a member using the Autoset.

Now, I can guess that (and need to check that) B5 times are for I and E times. But am now curious why the "B5..."
