Topic: What is the .db file?
so why complicate my comtepur's environment for such trivial stuff. Any recordings made are found in the Voice/Folder1 folder, and that's all I need to know or do to snag them or erase them.[The B600 had no comtepur software, no USB, etc. to support sound transfer. The only option for transferring its recordings was to use the speaker/audio out jack. I ended up using Windows Sound Recorder and the microphone in jack on the back of the PC, and even then there was some odd tweaking required to make that solution work. At the time, I would have had to cough up another forty smackers or so to get the model that provided file transfer support ... and it required software drivers to do it.]The PX312 also has gobs of memory and will even accept an M2 MicroSD card for expansion. When some reasonably sized M2 cards get cheap as dirt, well I'll snag em but I probably won't even need them.The weird hold button thing that was going on with the B600 is solved. On this PX312 there is a ON/OFF/HOLD slider switch. Pull down to turn on, pull down again to turn off. (You do have to hold it there for a few seconds sometimes.) Pull the slider switch UP for the hold function. That function locks all the buttons while the device is powered up (so you won't accidentally punch one). On the B600 the HOLD slider was actually nothing more than an ON/OFF slider. But anyone could have gone crazy trying to find the ON/OFF slider. Since it was cryptically labeled HOLD. Also gone with the PX312 is the weird erase function that was on the B600. With the B600, if you followed the instructions for erasing a recording, it resulted in the entire recording being played 10 times before it was erased. Why anyone would have a need for THAT to occur is beyond me. But simply pressing the Erase button twice in succession while playing the recording would erase the recording instantly. That approach was undocumented in the instructions. With the PX312 it's much smoother. Push the erase' button and the recording to be erased starts to play. The screen asks you to confirm the erase. Select Yes and it's gone.Also solved: The PX312, unlike the B600, has an auto-power-off option and the timer can be adjusted by the user.The PX312 does bring forward some unresolved shortcomings from the B600. The PX312, as was the B600, is way over-engineered. The basic operation/buttons and the display screens are not as simple as they could be. It took a bit of reading/plowing through the manual (and reading reviews here on Amazon) to get oriented. And there is other functional overkill. I don't need five storage folders (or a way to transfer files between them), an alarm clock (and a way to select a message for the alarm), the ability to go back and splice previous messages, the ability to append recordings to existing recordings and other such what not. All those functions and buttons just complicate the device/screens/menus needlessly, imho. I just wanted a gizmo that would make audio recordings at the push of a button, that would let me move them to my comtepur for storage and that made them in a format that didn't require any conversion efforts. And I suspect that is just about all most users want out of these devices. I guess Sony thinks it has to load up a bunch of this useless functionality to justify the asking price.The price of the Sony devices with this

I'd like to know if i can make suggestion to developers. I don't have any ability to develop any device but i have ideas for my iRoar. For instance, I use my iRoar as a TV speaker but some channels which use Dolby Digital + cannot be read by the iRoar. Would it be possible to develop a codec or something like that, so that the iRoar could read DD+ ? Where can I make this suggestion ?

The iRoar device saves each recording in the .wav format. Other formats are not supported.

If you need to access the recordings, they are located in the RECORD folder of your microSD card. You may manually edit/convert the files with your PC/Mac.

For general programming, you may refer to the PAWN reference manual available online.

- Language and Syntax: http://www.compuphase.com/pawn/Pawn_Language_Guide.pdf.
- String Manipulation : http://www.compuphase.com/pawn/String_Manipulation.pdf
- Fixed Point: http://www.compuphase.com/pawn/Fixed_Point_Support.pdf

For querying or controlling the iRoar device, a comprehensive list of functions are provided. You may refer to the APIs documentation for more details.

Wrong return in gettimestamp()?

The time on your iRoar device is automatically synchronized when you use the iRoar Dashboard application to connect to iRoar. After connection, the gettimestamp() returns the current time in seconds since 1 Jan 1970 (epoch). In addition, you can use gmtime() function to convert epoch time to displayable units.

Can we delete Add-ons without mobile device?

Yes you can. The Add-Ons installed on your iRoar are stored in the microSD card. Remove the card from your iRoar device and insert it into your computer. From your computer, you can browse the contents of the microSD card and delete the iroar-apps/ folder to remove all the Add-Ons. For your convenience, we recommend that you use the iRoar Dashboard application to uninstall Add-Ons.

When Add-ons are installed onto the iRoar, installation information and user preferences are saved into the microSD card. These files are necessary to enable your installed Add-ons to continue to run after powering up the iRoar.

How many Add-ons can i install?

Guest
The maximum supported is 8 add-ons, but there is also limit on the total memory used for the running add-ons (max at 64KB). You can check the required memory for each add-ons on the dashboard app.

To start development, you will need
  • an iRoar,
  • a microSD card,
  • Windows or Linux system,
  • register and download the latest iRoar SDK
You may also download and install the iRoar Dashboard mobile application to browse or manage the Add-Ons installed on the iRoar. If you intend to create a graphical user interface for your Add-Ons, you may view it with this application.

The iRoar application package (IPK) is the package file format used to distribute and install an Add-On. You can share Add-Ons that you create by attaching the IPK file in an email, listing it on your company’s website, or upload onto social media.
