Sorry folks, but was busy trying the disk replacement idea and didn't receive the suggestions.
Anyway put in the 80gb laptop drive and was prompted to reformat as I expected so I did it, next step was the installation of channels which brought up the hundred plus, so then I installed mystuff and unplugged a couple of times.
When I plugged the unit back in up came the blue screens of what it was adding etc, and this time the un-compressing and re-compressing of the firmware went faultlessly, so then into TM and channel deletion which also was fine, so its now running for a while showing BBC 2 news, we'll see how it goes.
Will see if there is anything on the drive I took out later after lunch.

well within a couple of hours the system went from a screensaver I had set-up in MyStuff showing, to the basic native radio screensaver, and back to the native toppy menu, which showed a greyed out file list once more.
Am I to assume the mysuff app is loaded onto the hard drive and this is the reason it reverts to native when something causes the disk to "die".
Have sent a PM to andyfras to ask if he is willing to have a look at my toppy, before I go down the Humax or Manhattan route

All MyStuff related stuff is on the HD, only exceptions are the firmware, channel tuning data (like a tv) and actual timers (which MyStuff creates) and probably one or two others,
and are stored in non volatile memory/ram or whatever it's called. Smile

Like you I'm on Emley Moor and am seeing the same problems with the same MUXes. I wonder if it's an ageing Toppy issue or a transmitter issue that the signals are bad on 33 and marginal on 36. A couple of recordings on the latter have been a bit flakey over the past few days - the quality comes and goes, I guess with the weather. All was fine till the rescan late last year. Now I cannot record or watch anything on 33 and have resorted to recording the HD versions on my youview box.

My guess would be either an aerial/signal/transmitter problem rather than a Toppy tuner problem, 33 is terrible and 36 very marginal, they will give you problems. Is there no other repeater in the area you could try other than the main Emley Moor transmitter ?

I think it is, as I have the same problems on my youview box. At least that doesn't crash due to poor signals.

I suppose I could use another transmitter, but Emley Moor transmits Yorkshire programmes, whereas the only other one in range transmits 'North-East'. I could try using different transmitters for different MUXes, but I'm not sure they all transmit the same selection on each MUX.

Update:--
It has worked fine since its return, recording when required and everything seems to record even on the channels with lower strength.
One exception
If I am watching the TV channels and want to switch to the radio using the TV/RADIO button on the remote, all goes well, and vice versa as long as the screensaver is not active on the radio channel. Have tried various savers and even "no" saver and if any of them are running or displaying at the time of pressing the TV/radio button, it appears to sort of freeze the saver and insert a small picture in the top left corner of the frozen screen ( a bit like a miniature PinP effect ) and trying to get away from this screen causes a re-boot and the V F & F and we start up again as if nothing had happened.
As long as the screensaver is not active the button for changing between the radio and TV works as it should, and it always works fine going from the TV to radio, obviously because the TV does not have a screensaver mode.

Screen saver is available for both tv and radio.

I know but never set one so that it interrupts whilst watching the TV

Screen saver on tv never gave me any problems, odd it happens on radio.

@ C Nile

Have you tried the [M] Mystic Dreams patch?

So now its a month since Andy worked his magic on my toppy, and it seems to be fine. Works on all channels with no pixellation which was my real problem before the aerial man did his bit, followed by Andy doing his.
Its working with an old 160Gb SATA laptop drive at present. so I guess its time to dive in, and send Mr Bacon my 1Tb drive for his attention in the next few days. Once he has repaired my big drive, I will change over the drives and go from there.
Thanks to all for their help and suggestions.
