Earlier today switched on Toppy 5810 and most timer list progs are rubbish characters.
Tried deleting (Z2) and restarting, but the list still comes up rubbish.
Can anyone help, please?

https://ukfree.tv/transmitters/tv/Huntshaw_Cross says that they were doing some work today.

Suggest you switch the toppy off (in case file system gets corrupted) until they have finished (5pm say) and then reboot. Wait 25 mins while EPG rebuilds and see if EPG resolves itself.

Geoff, Thanks for that, didn't think to check local xmitter before posting.
Will post if that proves to be the problem.

most appreciated,
scuda

More info to my original post:

I have found that ALL of my Freeview equipment (TVs and 2 x Toppy 5810) is affected by the problem, exception being my latest Panasonic TV?

The problem I see is that 90% of the EPG programme titles and descriptions are made up of unintelligible characters (a charachter set not interpreted by equipment EPG handler?) Not all channels are affected completely, so some info is processed OK.

The toppy seems to be recording one-time and series progs OK, although I have to choose progs only by time of day (titles garbled).

In addition to using Z2 to clear EPG, I have done a manual re-tune, result the same. I have also posted a query on UKTVFree on Huntshaw Cross page, no reply so far (it shows that there was work done on Tues 12/Wed 13 between midnight Tues and 04.30 Wed) Have they buggered up EPG?

Does anyone else using Huntshaw Cross have this problem?

My latest efforts:

Have tried re-installing MyStuff using GCBMyStuffinstaller, did not fix the problem.

As my toppys do an EPG collection scan between 02.30 and 03.00, I now think that when the xmitter was off, from 00.07 to 04.30, the lack of signal screwed the toppy itself.

I intend to reset to factory setting, reformat disk and re-install MyStuff (need to copy off all recordings first)

I cannot do this during the next week, but will return to this post with update.

I have read Micheal's comments on another post, thanks for that!

Before you do all that, suggest you use TopManager | Tools| remove Bad EPG filesto see if that fixes it (you will need to wait 25 mins for the EPG to rebuild)
