I updated it after I read your post, I still had TM open and connected to my Toppy so probably would have got any notification.
I did get the usual notification when I initially started TM to do the update & retune.

Thanks. Just updated them and rescanned.

The MUX on channel 33 currently seems to have disappeared off Emley Moor again , so I lost a few channels, mostly Channel 5's sister channels, as well as Quest, etc. But I couldn't record off them anyway as they're often poor quality, so I often record the HD versions on the youview box

Just been checking through the latest updates to the Freeview channel listing.

The channel numbering update is easy enough to do but it might appear that ceegeebee has gone offline now and his valuable updates appear to be no longer available. Is anyone likely to have the relevant SvcId, etc. information should there be any future updates/new channels, such as GB News coming next year? Or possibly a latest freeview.dat file.

I have two of the 5800 Toppies running - despite having bought a (crappy) Humax 12 months ago - which I though would be an improvement on the Toppy - but no. Whoever wrote THAT software didn't know what he was doing. Awful! And the tuning - don't mention the tuning. I can receive three main stations and it always seems to pick the weakest (not my) region to tune to. Rubbish machine!

Long live my two Toppies!

Ooops! my mistake. It helps when I copy & save the correct address.
Egg on face, eh?
Tks.

@dgc188

The easiest way to update these files is through the TopManager Tools| Install Files interface. Each time TM opens a connection to a toppy, it checks to see if the versions on the toppy need to be updated (this assumes that the computer running TM has access to the internet) i.e run TM to see if new versions are available and also to download/install them for you (no need to remember websites or do manual downloading/transfer of files).

Your signature looks pretty ancient (as is mine). In particular, it doesn't show if the PruneEPG tap is present. I suggest you install TM and use it to display your MyInfo Log; then copy and paste into a new thread (not this one). The log might show something else you should address.

Cheers
Geoff

It appears that ITV+1 (LCN 34) uses different SvcIds in the different regions (thanks to dgc188 for providing information from his system); I was under the impression that a common number was used for this channel).

I have just uploaded a new version of Freeview.dat which uses SvcId=-1 for LCN 34; this allows ChannelOrganiser to accept any value for the SvcId.

Note: TM/PcControl/Channel Management uses a different mechanism from CO and would have automatically adjusted for the discovered SvcId.

Those who use TM will be alerted to the new version of the file when they next run TM. If you have already re-tuned since 04-Nov-20 then no retune is necessary (just use Tools| Install Files to download the latest version to avoid getting the message each time you run TM).

Freeview(Scotland) is not affected.

Geoff
