CD-i Types

There are many differences between CD-i players. Most of the basic player models exist in several different generations, and even within the generations there are often different ROM versions. The same holds for the Digital Video Cartridges that can be used with CD-i players, although there are fewer versions of them.

The text file cditypes.rul defines rules to determine these types and is used by both CD-i Link and the CD-i Emulator program; the former normally uses an internal default version but it can also read the external text file.

The current version of this file covers most of the known CD-i players and DV cartridges but there are some holes and the file will be extended when more information becomes available.

The ROM tag matching rules contained in the current version of this file are not compatible with current versions of CD-i Link and CD-i Emulator a version stripped of those roles is available from the Downloads section:

cditypes-0.6.0-beta1-stripped.zip CD-i Types rule file version 0.6.0-beta1 stripped of ROM tag rules

Below you will find a pretty-printed version of the contents of the current version of this file, containing the following sections:

cditypes.rul - Defines rules for determining CD-i types

This file defines the rules that are used to determine the CD-i player ROM and model types. The rules are essentially conditions on the contents of the ROMs and check for presence and attributes (type/revision/size/etc) of the OS-9 modules in those ROMs.

Rule syntax

Each type rule is of the form
name.ext:[:] description
  condition ...
  condition ...
  ...
The first line of the rule is called the target line; it names the type and describes the targets that the rule is intended to match. A double colon :: indicates a fallback rule that will be ignored unless no other matching rule for the specific object type can be found.

The target line is followed by a number of condition lines; the rule will match a target when all the conditions on at least one of these lines match the target. Type names will often be used to name files; they should be lowercase and conform to 8.3 filename restrictions as much as possible.

Type extensions are used to limit matching to specific object types; the following extensions are currently used:
.rom
CD-i player ROM
.brd
CD-i player board
.mdl
CD-i player model
.ext
CD-i player extension
.dvc
CD-i digital video cartridge
Each condition is of the form [!]name [[!]attrcond ...], where name can either be the name of a type occurring elsewhere in the rules file, the name of a module to test for or the location of a ROM tag (ROM ID/release/checksum) of the form {nnnK} or {nnn.nK}. The name can include the wildcard characters * and ?; the * wildcard will always use the longest possible match (there is no backtracking). Module names and ROM tag locations can optionally be followed by one or more module attribute conditions; both names and conditions can be individually negated.

Attribute conditions are of the form [attr][match][radix]value, and specify the module attribute and how to match it against value.

Attribute characters attr specify the attribute to test; if no such character is present a default attribute is implied by the radix character. The attribute character must be at most one of:
@
module address (hexadecimal, modulo rom size)
%
module type (decimal)
/
module revision (hexadecimal)
Match characters match specify the relationship between the attribute value and the specified value; they must be at most two of:
~
string attribute must match string value
=
number attribute must be equal to number value
<
number attribute must be less then number value
>
number attribute must be greater then number value
If no attribute was previously specified, the string match character ~ will default to match against the first 1K of a data module and the number match characters will default to match against the module size in decimal. String and number matching characters cannot be mixed.

Radix characters radix specify the radix (decimal or hexadecimal) of a numeric value; if no attribute was previously specified they also imply a default attribute. The radix character must be at most one of:
#
decimal number (defaults to module edition)
$
hexadecimal number (defaults to module CRC)
Decimal numbers can optionally be followed by a K or k character which causes the number to be multiplied by 1024. Hexadecimal numbers can optionally have their digits separated by : characters which are ignored.

Many Philips and Philips-derived CD-i ROMs contain ROM tags consisting of a ROM ID byte, a ROM release byte and a ROM checksum word; these are often reported by low-level tests and ID/release are also encoded in the copyright number displayed by newer player shells. ROM tags are always placed in the 4 last visible bytes of the individual ROM chips. When two 8-bit ROM chips are used together, the interleaved 16-bit ROM image will have two interleaved ROM tags in the last 8 bytes.

ROM tag locations act as virtual modules where the attributes are set as follows:
edition
set from the ROM ID byte(s)
revision
set from the ROM release byte
CRC
set from the ROM checksum word(s)
address
set to the address just after the ROM tag
size
set to the size of the tagged ROM part
Some players can have multiple ROM tags in a single ROM image.

CD-i player and cartridge types

Most of the information in this section is derived from the 96/05 issue of The Interactive Engineer which contains a table of Philips CD-i player and DV cartridge models/generations with some commentary. An online version can be found at http://www.icdia.co.uk.

Philips uses four levels of version numbers for its CD-i players: The model number indicates the basic features of the player such as form factor, color, etc. It is the most user-visible version number but unfortunately also the most useless one for typing purposes. The first digit of the model number indicates the general player class:
1xx
three-unit authoring player, e.g. 180
2xx
single-unit consumer player, e.g. 200, 205, 210, 220
3xx
portable consumer player, e.g. 350, 360, 370, 380
4xx
small form-factor consumer player, e.g. 450, 470, 490
5xx
small form-factor consumer player with DV cartridge, e.g. 550
6xx
professional or authoring player, e.g. 60x, 615, 660, 670
7xx
high-end consumer player, e.g. 740
9xx
US version of some 2xx player, e.g. 910
The phase number sometimes indicates generations of the player model; in this case it typically implies board type, including chipset revisions and i/o port capabilities. The phase number is almost never directly mentioned but can be inferred from the slash number. The model and phase numbers together pretty much specify the hardware of a Philips CD-i player.

The slash numbers indicate a market and usually a TV-standard as follows:
/00
Europe (PAL)
/01
General overseas
/05
UK (PAL)
/11
Japan (NTSC)
/17
USA (NTSC)
/19
France (SECAM)
For the 18x and 2xx players the phase number is incorporated into the slash number by adding /20 for each new phase, starting with /00 for F1. With other players Philips uses the slash numbers differently, typically for variations (e.g. with/without DVC) or OEM versions.

The AH number indicates subgenerations of the player and is not very useful for hardware typing; it may imply player ROM versions.

A similar system is used for Philips digital video cartridges, except that the model numbers are of the form 22ER9xxx and the the AH number is important for the original 22ER9141 F1 cartridge because it implies some hardware differences.

For emulation the player board and extension and digital video cartridge types are the most important because the remaining differences are usually fairly minor. This file attempts to differentiate ROMs and players up to the phase number with rules based on OS-9 module presence and attributes. This is not always easy; various player models tend to use very similar ROMs. Differentiation of ROM versions is based solely on the ROM tag information.

CD-i player board types

CD-i player board types are easy to detect by the presence of driver modules for the various chipsets.

Board type names are chosen fairly arbitrarily except that all Mono-X board types have names of form monoN.brd where N is the decimal version of the roman numeral X.

For each board type type.brd a corresponding configuration file should exist for the CD-i Emulator program.

CD-i player system ROM types

CD-i player system ROM types are hard to detect because there are many versions and the ROMs for the very early and later players are very similar.

The names of the ROM types are chosen to closely match the player model, phase and optionally ROM release number, where possible. ROM type cdinnnxrr.rom indicates a Philips CD-i nnn Fn player ROM where n is the decimal version of the letter x (a = F1, etc). The ROM release suffix rr will be used where known from the ROM tag, it can also be omitted. For most non-Philips players, the cdi prefix is replaced with something else.

The CD-i Link program cdilink will use the system ROM type to name the system ROM images uploaded from a CD-i player.

CD-i digital video cartridge ROMs

CD-i digital video cartridge ROM types are easy to detect by the presence of driver modules for the various chipsets. Most cartridge types can be used in any CD-i player model with the correct number of interface connector pins (either 100 or 120).

The names of the ROM types are chosen to match the cartridge type and phase number and sometimes the ROM revision number but are otherwise fairly arbitrary. ROM type xmpegyrr.rom indicates a Philips XMPEG digital video cartridge with AH number 0y and ROM release rr; either y or rr is sometimes omitted. The abbreviation GMPEG is used for Gate Array.

All of the non-Philips players so far appear to use Philips digital video hardware, but integrated into the player instead of in a separated cartridge.

The CD-i Link program cdilink will use the cartridge ROM type to name the digital video cartridge ROM images uploaded from a CD-i player.

Philips GMPEG digital video cartridge ROM

This cartridge type is used with the Mini-MMC, Mono-I and Mono-II players, the model number is 22ER9141 F1. It is a 100-pin cartridge using an analog video interface. The AH00 version of this model does not have the 1MB memory extension.

CD-i player model types

Player model types are determined from board and ROM types, occasionally using additional conditions to differentiate between players with nearly identical hardware.

The names of the player types are chosen to closely match the model number; model type cdinnnx.mdl corresponds to the Philips CD-i nnn Fn player where n is the decimal version of the letter x (a = F1, b = F2, etc).

In some cases, a ROM revision digit is added to the model type name.

For each for each model type type.mdl a corresponding configuration file should exist for the CD-i Emulator program.
