Wow. Here is my research so far on this... After viewing APN files in a hex editor, its fairly obvious that the data is MPEG2 encoded (has the string "MPEG-2 Verification Sequence").
I found this page talking about i-Personalize and the specifications of the encoding. Best I can tell it’s not totally correct, but it’s close.

I believe the following about APN files:

* the data is MPEG2 encoded--likely by a Linux based encoding method
* the file is really 2 - 32k files appended together
* the file must be exactly 64k total (65,536 bytes).
* The files get to be their full size via padding bytes at the end (FF values)
* Windows Media Player will play the files if you have "Nero Video Decoder" installed by Nero 7 Ultra Edition (and maybe other versions)
* The duration of the files tends to make it hard to see but Windows Media player does play both frames
* I think the second file is for a different aspect ratio and/or maybe PAL. It may play on rear displays, I don't have one. The file on this forum can be split exactly in half and the files compare identical. I also tested taking an Alpine file, splitting it and appending it to itself--it loaded fine.

Using these facts, I think I know why the original poster of this message hasn't said a thing since posting. The zip file attached contains an APN and JPG file. The JPG is NOT what is in the correctly encoded (I tested it) non-Alpine APN. It is really the guy (See Wikipedia for more info). So be warned you probably do not want that loaded up on your unit.

Thank you for contacting

How many hours can i schedule a recording for ?

That's a quick question calling for a very long, complicated answer, Patricia. You have the camera, right? Which camera (make & model)? What do you plan to record onto? A VCR? A DVR? A laptop computer? A desktop server? One of the WebCam sites? YouTube? You have to have SOMETHING to store your recording... and the max recording time depends upon the camera's resolution & color density, as well as the recording device's capacity and the complexity of the scene backdrop (simple backdrops require much less storage than highly complex backdrops).

I'm having problem finding a free movie download site

There are no truly free movie download sites. Sites that claim to provide free movie downloads are technically illegal and very often open your computer to a variety of harmful computer viruses. I stronly reccommend staying away from any site that claims to have free movie downloads. Your better off paying $15 to $20 for the DVD.

How do I change the backdrop on my palm tx??

There isn't much you can change on your palm tx for a backdrop. When you are on the page with all the icons use your stylus and tap on "Preferences" From there tap on "color theme"
That will allow you to choose a color theme for all your pages but as far as a backdrop goes you won't be able to set anything on it as far as I know. Best wishes.
