I want to update my toppy from mystuff 6.4 to 6.6.
I do not want to add any more channels.
Do I have to do a factory reset and channel scan or can I get away with just updating mystuff?

Bob

There's absolutely no reason to scan when doing any TAP update, including MyStuff.

You can possibly get away with just updating the tap but I would recommend you do the full install (it won't require a rescan). The full install will ensure that you have everything updated correctly i.e. other taps as well - including my PruneEPG tap)

Please note that MyStuff 6.4 generated lots of backup files (5 per day) and omitted to clean any of them up. This can cause the install process to look as though it is hung (and sometimes for several hours!). Note: This won't have been helped by the fact that you have stayed on 6.4 for about 15 months more than someone who has already upgraded (i.e. 15*30*5 more files to delete).

Suggest you use the TopManager Tools| Manage MyStuff backups (or whatever I called it) to clean up the backups before you do the install. This option can purge the backups down to the latest few allowing the install to proceed quickly.
Although this TM option is what I would call slow, it is much quicker than getting the installer to do it!
