I left the Toppy on Pause for a while yesterday, and when I came back this error was on screen. I've never seen it before. Everything seemed OK once I'd pressed "OK"

I'd hazard a guess that it couldn't display any screensaver, but I've never seen it either. And TBH, I'm not sure why an EPG reload would affect the screensaver (other than MS can't manage 2 things at once, maybe).

My screensaver is the bouncing info box. I could see it possibly causing a problem if live TV is paused and the EPG changes, but this was a recording...

I was thinking more along the lines that the Toppy doesn't have enough processing power to make it sensible for MyStuff to BOTH update the EPG ("in the background") AND bounce a box around on your screen, so MS chooses not to waste processing effort on the screensaver if it's busy updating the EPG.

I will check the code this evening and post back with details of what this is about.

My word, it's been a long time since I looked at the MS code!

OK, so this error is displayed when the following is true:

1) You have asked to display a screen that relies on EPG information (so the EPG itself, or the Now&Next screen, or any of the variants on those)

2) There is an active recording going on OR there is a timer due to kick off within the next minute.

What happens when 1) fires normally is that MS communicates with the EPG data collector (whichever tap you have set for this), via messages or by looking at file times etc. If it looks like there is an update then MS loads it and refreshes its EPG data.

But if 2) is true then MS delays doing this, on the grounds that the time spent loading the EPG data (and processing it when doing a new Search to set new timers etc as a result) could stop the timer from firing, and/or cause other problems that might affect the current recording or the imminent timer.

So because your screen saver is the N&N box, it would be looking for EPG updates every now and then, and in this case delayed it because of an ongoing recording or imminent timer. It doesn't really need to display the message in this case (since it is not something the user initiated) but this clearly didn't happen during testing so it wasn't picked up.

Cheers BobD.

I'm not sure why it would need to update, as it was displaying the info for the recording in the on-screen box. Never mind: it's all working fine (touching wood) so it was more of interest than worry...
