You need to leave the Toppy alone for 20-30 minutes without pressing the remote to give EPG2MEI time to collect and generate the OTA EPG data.


I've left it well alone for more than 2 hours and there was no change. The existence of a freshly created EPG.mei and .raw I think indicates that there was an OTA update of the EPG content.

It would take a week or so with no MyStuff EPG before you started missing recordings, so there's no need to panic.
Ahh, didn't know this, thanks.

The other possibility is that you don't have option R1 set correctly in MyStuff. It should be
R1: EPG Source Filename=EPG.mei.


BINGO!!!

You are right! I have MyStuff.mei. This is because I read the help page and it said: "Option R1: EPG source filename [Freeview.mei; EPG.mei; MyStuff.mei] Select the name of your EPG file. Typically eit2mei produces Freeview.mei, EPG2MEI produces EPG.mei and rt2mei produces MyStuff.mei." So, I thought that if I use rt2mei I should have MyStuff.mei in there. Are you saying that I should have EPG.mei instead? Don't answer this ... now that I'm thinking about it I can see that the merged OTA + rt2mei content will be in EPG.mei not in MyStuff.mei.

I'll try it when I get home and report back. I think that this is the cause of my problem. I misunderstood what should be specified in R1. Perhaps the help page should say "enter EPG.mei if you wish to use the merged content of OTA updates along with your preferred data collection system. Otherwise only enter your preferred source file (Freeview.mei for eit2mei, MyStuff.mei for rt2mei, or EPG.mei for EPG2MEI)." I think something like this would make sense to users who do not know how EPG2MEI works and ensure that they enter the appropriate setting.

... and was, in fact, explained 4 days ago Wink - although I did fail to spot the fact that MyStuff.mei was being used in the post respondng to that.

Thank you again for your help. R1 was indeed the problem, I had not set that to the correct file ... now I know! Very Happy
