    Cool! Good-quality images too. I'll add them when I get a chance -- thanks for the pointer.

    TrafficLand.com has added over 100 new cameras to its website (mostly in Montgomery County, MD). As such, I've updated the Baltimore-Washington XML file with the new cameras. Our region now boasts 430 cameras.

    One caveat... For whatever reason, most if not all the old Montgomery County cameras were renumbered. So, if you had any of those selected, I'd imagine you'll have to reselect them.

    Let me know if there's anything wrong with the new file... I've made sure it's valid XML, but I probably won't be able to test it on an actual TiVo for a couple days.

    Finally got around to testing the new DC cameras, and everything looks good... Except I guess the master region file still lists DC as having 292 cameras. That can be updated to 430 now.

    Chicago's done. Lots of duplicates, but the XML follows their list (which has the same duplication).

    This is probably not a big deal. That error is from a script that allows the application to work properly through Windows Firewall. If you're not running Windows XP Service Pack 2, you may get this error, and you can safely ignore it. If you are on SP2, let me know so I can try to track this down -- you're the first to report a problem with that script.

    F8ster: I get a bug in Tivo when I try to run Traffic cam. The application starts, I get the "please wait" message, then a little later, the bug "An error occccurred while running the application, The applicatation closed during a write (0xffff)"

    I installed all per standard (c:\tivo\trafficcam\TrafficCam_Viewer_Service.exe). I used trafficcam_service_install.bat to install as a service. Checked with Start - Run - services.msc and it IS installed as automated service. Also, checked Windows Firewall in Control Panel and It looks like your example. Am running Galleon, latest version and am on XP PC,

    Have rebooted PC serveral times and error still appears. Galleon runs great. Am running Galleon Traffic Webcam. Do they conflict?

    Any suggestions on how to fix the bug?

    The main cause of this problem is unzipping the original ZIP file without maintaining the directories. (I really just need to spend the money and provide a real installer.)

    Under the installation directory (usually c:\tivo\trafficcam), there should be a 'jars' and 'logs' directory. If that is indeed the case, take a look inside the 'logs' directory and see if there's anything interesting in there. (Or just zip them up and e-mail them to me and I'll sort them out if you want.)

    If you don't have a 'logs' and 'jars' directory, reinstall the app by:
    - first uninstalling the service (run trafficcam_service_uninstall.bat)
    - deleting the installation directory
    - grab the latest version, and unzip it, being sure to maintain the folder structure when you unzip it. If you're using Winzip, make sure there's a checkmark in the 'Use folder names' checkbox when you're Extracting the files.

    Let me know what you find out -- Dave

    If you're looking for a decent free installer, I've never personally needed one, but I've heard good things about Nullsoft's:

    http://nsis.sourceforge.net/Main_Page

    If you're familiar with Winamp, I'd imagine it uses their installer (but I could be wrong).

    F8ster!

    You the Man! Worked like a charm. Wish we got that kind of support from Oracle!

    Thanks again for the great support. Looks like a great app and tutorial! Keep up the good work.

    Grin - any chance you wanna try adding Unix Skype to Tivo
    http://www.skype.com/products/skype/linux/

    Plug the ol' webcam in the USB port and talk to grandparents thru the TV!

    Thanks again
