SleepyHead updated yet for 60 Series REMstar? [Patch available, See Post #36]
#1
I have a Phillips Remstar 560p. Does anyone know if sleepyhead has been updated so I can go over the data that is on my sd card? Or if there is any software that will allow me to view the data on the sd card.

Admin Note: this has been fixed with the newest version of SleepyHead, download it here:

Not yet. . EncoreBasic should work

Hi Dave, I updated your thread title to better reflect your question.

Does anyone know the status of the SleepyHead software currently? Is Mark working at all on updating it to work with the Series 60 REMstars?

Seems like it's been in "hold status" for quite a while now... Dont-know

The last I heard Mark had to put programming on hold for a bit due to life issues. All that happened with the Series 60 REMStars is that Respironics changed the format of the data. The data is actually just a text file but, because the new format puts the data in different order and formats, SleepyHead can't make heads or tails of it. Mark is aware of this and has samples of the new data format. He just needs time to get to work on it, which he does not have at the moment.

I should also add that SleepyHead is not only free but open source. For those of you accustomed to paying for commercial software, open source means that you can download the source code from Sourceforge and modify it to suit yourself. I believe the license only requires that you contribute back any modificactions you make to the open source community. So if you're a programmer (not me!), go for it.

Hi Nascardave

EncoreBasic does work with the Phillips Remstar 560p it is basic but it does work.
I am also waiting for SleepyHead so I am glad you asked because I have been wanting to but have been occupied with new medical findings (just diagnoses with Diabetes's type 2) Angry
Now researching info on Diabetes's & still in the very start of learning has taken most of my time that I spent here.

This Form has been a wealth of info & full of great people.

Cool and that is good to know. Where can I find a link so that i can get encore basic? From what I read it is slow, but I guess being able to read the data is the most important.


#7
I can tell you that EncoreViewer does not work. I am still trying to get my money back from Respironics.
#8
EncoreViewer support machines using smart cards

Hi Nascardave
Have you made any progress with your 60 Series REMstar & software?

I have the same system Respironics 60 Series REMstar C-Flex+
Let me know if I can help.
Sleep-well

Looks like someone made an update for SleepyHead to work with PR System One 60 Series machines. Thanks to Sleepster who posted the link on another thread, but here it is again for those who didn't see it:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/sleepyhe...ic/6062334

Scroll down the forum to the link in one of the posts for the zipped up downloadable .exe. file... also, let us know if it works okay for you.
