For several years my Toppy5800 has been used by my brother. He no longer needs it, so is returning it to me. I want to bring all the firmware and software up-to-date and also retune it back to my local tx (Nottingham).

What's the best way of doing this?

The firmware I have stored on my computer is 5.13.65 and I was using MyStuff v6.4.

I also have notes about using FastScanGUI 0.6 to retune and other Taps such as Channel Manager 5.1, Channel Organiser A3, eit2mei, Accurate Bookmark etc.

Your advice will be most welcome.

Geoff

Just reinstall MyStuff 6.6 using the installer and accept all options (firmware, MyStuff and utilities).

Delete FastScanGUI - it is out of date.
You should rescan using either "TopManager/PcControl|Channel Management" (from your pc) or with the ChannelOrganiser (installed by MS 6.6 installer). These two methods share data files so changes made by either method will be seen by the other (having written TopManager, I always use that but the many use the tap because they don't have a permanent connection to the toppy). Any other method of scanning is likely to cause problems unless you are extremely competent!

You should also delete all the other taps that you mention. In fact, if you don't want any of the existing recordings, you may be better off just reformatting the disk using the toppy system menu and starting again from scratch with the MS Installer (that way you are starting from a known state).
??? Save existing MyStuffOptionSettings.txt first before reformat ???

You should also get the 18 capacitors checked out by andyfras otherwise, if they haven't all be changed already, you are likely to need to reinstall the software in the near future when the psu starts to fail.
Note: I can repair a corrupted disk should the need ever arise.

You might also want to install my fsSave tap ( use TopManager Tools| Install Files)

Please post the MyInfo log after you have set iyt up - this will let others advise whether or not you need to do anything else.

Many thanks Geoff - that all makes a lot of sense.

The MyInfo looks fine to me (assuming you have rescanned and/or are in the same area as your brother).

If you haven't already done so, you might like to try TopManager (link in my signature); this has many functions that you might find useful in managing your toppy.

Thanks Geoff,

I've downloaded TopManager as you suggest. Since my last post I took the opportunity to replace all the PSU capacitors, format the HDD, re-install all the software and retune to my local Tx. I'm pleased to report that everything is working fine.
