Hi there

And futuremore i was wondering if it can be used for Force 1122,1133.

At this point, i´m not sure what chip set is used by Force, but someone told me that it´s very likely that it is the same
what that "thing" will need to work...

I have some files wich has some pictures and software...
does anyone knows if there are some developemet web site for that
or where should i look for more info for that gadget...

Thanks Poka

Oh..

here some copy and paste from the readme



PC Parallel port to Os-Link Interface
Description
-----------

This interface allow to connect a personal computer (PC) to any Os-Link based
ST20-TP2 board, using single-ended signals; this processors are commonly used on
many digital TV set-top boxes (ST:cool:. On the PC side, the interface plug on a
standard parallel port with EPP or bidirectional modes, using a long extension
cable, while a short cable connect to the STB. After the interface is connected to
both ends and powered, the PC can read or write any memory location of the STB,
also ST20 code can be uploaded and run; with the proper software on the PC, it's
possible to watch or dump the memory of the STB, reprogram the EEPROM areas or
debug the firmware of the STB, without need any resident monitor in the firmware.

In the STB field, two are the most common uses of this interface:

.- Full replace of the STB fimrware or apply patches.

.- Edit the STB stored channels, in the PC.


A) Start the program OSLNKnnt, where 'nn' is the version number (currently '21')
and 't' is the decoder model ('A' Phillips TS4 or DSI175D, 'B' Pace TS1,
'C' Philips TS6).
