I've recently performed some jiggery pokery with my Audio/Video setup using an HDMI Matrix Switcher to address my hitherto shortage of HDMI and (analog) audio sockets on a number of gizmos I have somehow linked up. In the mle I have noticed, but not explored further, that when I watch my Freesat box and the Toppy is recording I get a very faint crosstalk mixing with the Freesat audio. I haven't tried to locate the exact cause but if I mute the Toppy that solves the problem.

Now my question is this: Has there been a TAP or a patch that automatically mutes the Toppy when either recording from standby or when a current recording is followed by a request to switch off, i.e. mute when I'm not actively watching the Toppy?

By mute I mean either Toppy "mute" and/or disable the RCA/CINCH output.

Could Power Down do the trick?

You could try my TAP BlankStuff http://forum.toppy.org.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=18270
Basically the screen is blank and muted unless you actively choose to play back a recording, or actively choose to watch live TV. At boot and when playback ends it goes back to blank silence. It might be a bit "aggressive" for what you want though, it's mainly designed for us curmudgeons who hate live TV. Also it's optimised to work with MyStuff, I don't know whether you use MS or not.

I had a tickle with BlankStuff, v2.7 now goes to a blank, mute screen if you press Power in playback or live TV. It won't stop a recording, but if it's not recording the Toppy will go straight to sleep. If it is recording, it will still go blank & silent but will then wait for the recording to end before going to sleep. If that's what you want let me know.

You might still get 4-5 seconds of audio if the Toppy starts up for a recording, it switches straight to the channel and my TAP can't blank/mute it until gets loaded starts a few seconds later. Don't know how to fix that one

Power Manager doesn't quite do what I need. I'll give BlankStuff a go MarkPax. Sounds like it addresses half my problem. Thanks. I'll let you know of my finding in due course.

If it doesn't do what you want, let me know and we'll see about adding it
