You probably didn't install the drivers correctly.
If you turn on your topfield while connected to your pc do you get a noise from your speakers meaning you have found the topfiled. Also you should get a message in the bottom right hand corner that your pc has found a new device.

Sure Paul. First thing to do is check out the FAQ. You?ll see the guide Nigel wrote listed there. Take a look at that, and see how you get on. If you need any help with any particular step then by all means post back

Hi Guys
Downloaded the altair program first then the upgrade, think I unzipped them, but when I tried to download to my Toppy the little download box said something like " Download please wait " But nothing happened.

This guide from the FAQ gives comprehensive, step-by-step instructions on upgrading. Follow that and you can't go wrong Very Happy If you got the message 'Wait Download' in TFDN-USB it means the download has finished (it is a bit of a misleading message), and you can turn on your Toppy.

Yes, that is a confusing message; a better message would be ?Waiting to download. Please press power on your remote?.

Essentially you?ve got to the stage where the download program is primed, ready to download the new firmware to the Toppy. Now all you need to do is to take the Toppy out of Standby, and the download will commence.

See step 4 of Nigel?s guide.
