Hi Andy

Thanks for the feedback. I sometimes get connection hiccups but I think these are caused by Windows not fully releasing the toppy rather than a coding error in TM. On the odd occasion that it happens, I tend to reboot the toppy rather than play with the cables (obviously, you can't do this if you are recording or someone is watching TV).

The Check MyStuff option does not require the channels to be in order. I can only think that you had a funny character on the line and that it was stripped out when the file was edited. Note: MyStuff requires channel numbers to start in column 1. (Just tried 5, 31, 30 on my system and it didn't report any errors)

The 'Oops: Failed to process #:\ProgramFiles\Settings\PowerManager.ini" is because this file doesn't exist. The documentation for PM is minimal so I'm guessing where the file goes!

Cheers
Geoff

Does anybody know what needs to happen to add this to the toppy.org.uk downloads? That way when Geoff updates it we can get a notification.

Looks great from the posts so far, not had a chance to download and play

I believe Nigel, EMJB and possibly Hyde can add it. Hopefully one of them will see this thread or if not them a PM to one of them in a couple of days should do the job,

@keithc

For users who have an active internet connection, TM checks the download site to see if an update is available. This check is only performed after 7 days have elapsed since a previous check i.e. you should know within a week of a release (provided you run TM).

Users who would rather the program didn't access the Internet can disable the Help\AutoCheck option (it is enabled by default).

That said, having notifications from the forum may aid those users who do not have an internet connection when they are running TM e.g. using a standalone laptop.

@alan_m

Thanks for the bug report.

I have been unable to produce the "I/O Error 1784" on my system but looking at the code, it has minimal error checking (it is a routine I downloaded from the web). A google search shows that someone else experienced the same error (in 2004?) but they didn't provide a solution!
Have added some extra checks in for the next build (note: this should only fix the 1784 error message crashing TM, instead, you will probably get a proper message along the lines of "unable to obtain update information").

Cheers
Geoff

Just quickly tried with Windows 7 64 bit and it seems to work fine. I'll give it more of a thrashing later!

@Wolfie:

Thanks for the info about Windows 7 64 bit.
Was that using the USB driver or using FTP (and which)?

Cheers
Geoff

Great! thanks!

Very minor point, but I just noticed the download link points at the home page, not the actual file or the download page.

I've just uploaded version 1.1 to the download site.

This should address all the issues that people have raised:-
* Access Violations reported by TopTapper
* Search order for FireBird located .ini files corrected (TopTapper)
* Change Analyse code to reflect FireBird search order ( plus some updates to what is checked and where)
* allow PowerManager 1.2 .ini file in ProgramFiles (content not checked - for Andyfras)
* checking for updates ("I/O Error 1784" reported by alan_m). Note this probably won't address the reason for the failure, just handle it better.

There should be no installation issues updating over the existing version i.e. you don't need to deinstall/re-install.

Cheers
Geoff

Installs and runs on 64-bit Linux, under wine - but fails to connect to toppy via ftp - does it accept 2121 as port No? Only 3 characters appear in setup screen at one time!

@mstombs

I obviously need to increase the width of the Port field - the field used to display 4 digits but I guess I've tweaked the font it uses.

TM accepts any port up to 9999 (and I have run it here using port 5800). If you type all the numbers in, it will use them even though the display looks wrong (if you delete the 4th digit, the other 3 appear).

Can you connect to the toppy via ftp using TopSet (under wine)?

Geoff

Never tried before, didn't know it supported FTP - but no similar error "500" when trying topset 2.00, seems to be common problem with ftptopfield on slug - need something called ftp4t which I don't think has a slug version.
