Hi all,

I've got a working Toppy 5800 (5810? it's the one with a 160GB drive) PVR that I've no longer any use for, wonder if anyone wants it for spares? I've removed the HDD as I want to retain it as a spare for my other Toppy. It is working though it had started to misbehave hence I retired it . It has had the PSU caps replaced though I did it myself with the kit supplied by Andy Fraser, but I suspect I didn't do a proper job of it, hence the reason it's acting up.

Anyway, it's available for spares to whoever wants it, it's boxed and in very good condition, though I've lost the remote.

Let me know if you want it. I'd rather it was put to good use rather than junking it.

Sorry, I can't accept any more, as I've been unable to sell the ones I've got, and I've got a pile of ones that are suitable only for spares.

I just read this and thought about the spare Topfield 5800 I have at the moment that needs a replacement mainboard - do you have a working mainboard spare that you would be willing to sell and what would you want for it if so?

Re the duff mainboard:

The issue was to do with HDD not being detected when attached to the system. I purchased an SATA/IDE bridge from you some time ago (just over 4 months ago now ~02/03/17) which was related to the issue.

It seems to have been the case that the bridge had failed, possibly as a result of the failing mainboard (the bridge+sata hdd was working ok for about 2yrs or so prior to this although it always ran really hot which might have been to do with the issue).

When I replaced the duff bridge with the one you gave me, the system still would not recognize the HDD. As a result I ended up replacing each part one by one with known good replacements until finally the culprit turned out to be the mainboard. The system has worked without fault since then but it does mean I now have a topfield 5800 which is complete apart from a working mainboard.

I don't have a spare mainboard, as it would involve taking one from a working Toppy.

I thought you were saying you had a pile of boxes that were only suitable for spares:

Not to worry.

If it helps I have my old Toppy which stopped working with the usual PSU problem (was running a long term experiment to see how long it would go on the original caps). I assume the mainboard on that is still fine so you are welcome to take it off my hands for the cost of P&P if you like. Or based in North Bucks if we could meet for a handover?

(Currently running a BT Youview box, a Digitalstream Freeview box and a Humax Freesat box so comfortably over-provisioned for recording capability)

Thanks that sounds great, I'll send you a PM. Smile
