Hi guys, I haven't been to this forum for a while.

A few years ago I got myself a second hand TF5800, installed MyStuff and I absolutely adored it. It is without doubt the greatest PVR ever IMHO!

Before long though, it stopped working. Admittedly, I had done a crude job of replacing the hard drive, and I knew the PSU had never been fixed. I'm not really very technical when it comes to hardware. So now it won't boot past the C4.56 stage (even when I disconnect the HD).

For the last few years I kind of forgot about the Toppy and just used Freesat (lured by all the channels). But now I've just moved and don't think I want to bother with a satellite dish because Freeview seems great now, with all the channels I could need.

So I just want to get my Toppy working but as I said I'm not very good with hardware and to be honest I wouldn't want to get involved with PSU repair etc. I would like to pay someone to fix it for me.

I remember hearing about members such as andyfras and MikeyP who have offered to do this kind of thing before. Perhaps someone could get in touch?

Specifically I am looking for the following:
? Get the unit working
? Fix the PSU (as necessary)
? Install a new HD (I can send it, or pay you for one if you prefer)
? Possibly some way to make it easy to transfer files to PC? I always used to struggle with this in the past and when I used the Toppy software it often crashed when I was transferring files.

Thanks for any replies Smile
