It's nothing to do with firmware, I'm afraid. The Toppy uses the EPG data which is broadcast to all Freeview boxes, so it would be necessary for Freeview to increase the data to 14 days.

The only other sources of 14-day data that I'm aware of are the 4TV stream which is transmitted on LCN 704 and which is used by some other PVRs whose manufacturers have chosen to subscribe to it (it's not otherwise available), and the deeply wonderful DigiGuide which you can subscribe to on the Web. Clever people have developed ways of exporting instructions to set the Toppy timers from DigiGuide.

...of course the other way of catching series is by using Jags EPG and the key word recording option. Make sure you don't miss any episodes of Neighbours whilst you are away Laughing

Or use Diguguide and export timers - always at least 14 days there. With Digiguide and JAGs auto-search to pick up late changes I hardly ever actually look at the EPG on the Toppy.

I've read the the freeview EPG is unlikely ever to go to 14 days due to bandwidth restrictions.

That can be a problem, though, for those with gappy EPGs, like myself. Sad

Hi Sebby,

is your EPG gappy even 1 day out? If there is a scan everyday and you have the key word search set to the 10min option then surely you only have to capture 1 days worth of programmes. If its that gappy I really feel sorry for you. Sad

It seems okay 1 day out. It's usually okay a few days out, but after that, it's blank. Laughing
