First every post so be gentle please... Smile

I am looking for advice on how to get Description extender working so I can see more program info from within MyStuff.

I am asuming I can get OTA extended info but I am not sure about this? Don't want to go the PC/Radio Times route at this stage.

I have a scheduled scan each night with a watch timer setup to wake the Toppy before the scan starts and my EPG is fully populated with eit2mei but I don't seem to have anything more than a couple of lines of description - I see in the new MyStuff Vn 5.0 manual some screen shots with much more text than I ever get.

You don?t actually get proper extended info, what you get is the full normal info.

Normally the Toppy only passes on 128 characters of the normal info to Taps, with description extender you get 256.

Proper extended info is not transmitted, although I believe a couple of the five channels did it for a while.

For proper extended info you will need to go the PC/Radio Times route.

[EDIT]

As far as setup is concerned just put DE in autostart, job done.

Then as the EPG data is updated (over time) you will get the longer descriptions. Or force a manual e2m scan if you cant wait.

Thanks for the reply. At least I now know I am not doing anything wrong.

I see you use MyStuff NG...I have read the manual and the new version looks very good. Any idea when it will be available?
