Nope, just download, install, and run. OSCAR may have to update your database, which it will do automatically.

Just installed 1.3.
Easy peasy....final step was the alert it gave me that it needed to update my database which means it wanted to pull in the data from version 1.2. Didn't take all that long and no hiccups.

I may have to RISE but I refuse to SHINE.

Thanks to both of you. I should have said Mac, but it worked anyway. Nice work!

Tried reading my SleepStyle (F&P) (not the 600 or 200 series) data imported successfully, but no data shown.
Additionally, the last date is the year 2036?????.
Yet, when I look at the files on my Win 10 PC, the "modified" dates are current.

Do you use the F&P Infosmart Web to look at your data? Is the year correct there? I have seen problems with dates on SleepStyle machines.

I see you uploaded three folders. What is the difference between those folders?

Fantastic, I've been waiting with bated breath!
However I seem to be experiencing a problem with using OSCAR 1.3 and Resmed AirSense II. Only summary data is produced, not the detailed hour-by-hour data that I'm looking for. Have I done something wrong?

In case it's pertient, I just (today) installed a clean SD card. Is it possible that the detailed data (for last night) has not yet been written to the card? Is the hourly detail written on some sort of schedule, like just after 12 noon the following day?

Have you left your SD card in the machine overnight, while you are using the machine? ResMed machines write detailed data throughout the night and if the card is not in the machine, there's only summary data to show.

Still no support for direct connection for my Contec CMS50F?
Software ver. 2.0.5
Hardware ver 2.0.0

Oximetry Wizard says no compatible devices found? :?

Are these versions too old?

I had to get the answer to your question from another member of our team. He says:
Crimson Nape wrote:Actually, it is too new. Contec got creative with their version numbering, and the newer one looks older than the previous version. This is one of those "Go figure" moments. As far as I know, no one capable of deciphering the newer handshake has one to experiment with. The .SpO2 file structure is the same and is still compatible with OSCAR.
So, continue to use SpO2 Assistant to import the data and convert it to .SpO2 files that OSCAR can read.

Reworking oximeter support and direct connections are high on our list of future enhancements.

There is also Smart Device Assistant. It's the same as SpO2 Assistant, just updated (probably with new drivers).
