I've been running 2 5800s together, for several years, but one having shown PSU symptoms is now on its way to Andy.

Immediately it left the house, MyStuff 6.5 crashed on the remaining machine.
So I'm now using it in 'out of the box' mode, using the press '0' option on start-up. Everything works as it should in this mode.

2 Questions please:

a) Can I use Altair etc. with Windows 10?

b) Can I then delete MyStuff 6.5 from Auto Start and then download/use the complete installation pack for Mystuff 6.6.

Thanks in advance for your help + overall thanks for this Forum & the MySoft team.

It sounds as though your disk is corrupted so, while reinstalling 6.6 might fix it in the short term, it could just end up masking the problem and biting you later on.

With windows 10, you should be using Antares and not Altair. You will need to read Antares and Windows 10 to find out how to install the driver on Win 10. [note] edited previous URL so displays correctly[/note]

Having established the connection with Antares, install the latest version of TopManager and use the Tools| Install Files| fsCheck tap (this analyses the file system)

Use the native menus to run this tap:-
1) > (between << and >>)
2) Archive
3) << (displays ProgramFiles)
4) Scroll down to Utilities and press OK
5) Scroll down to fsCheck and press OK
6) When complete, press Archive to save the log and close the tap
7) TM Display| fsCheck log
8 ) Copy and paste into the dedicated fsCheck Reports thread (please don't put it in this one).

Thanks Geoff Now got Antares & Topmanager, & can access Toppy files via achive.

USB plugged in, but to connect 64 bit PC to my Toppy I need to install 'topfield-libusb-winusb' drivers. (My PC refuses to install z4t.exe: policy it says, as it doesn't know the publisher)

I've downloaded & extracted these drivers, but have no idea how to install them......

S'blood! My old Vista/XP slabs would have danced it.

You have to read that Antares and Windows 10 link I posted to allow Win 10 to install the driver (it would have helped if I had posted the URL correctly - I'll edit my previous post to correct it.

Yup, sorry Geoff. I've been trying to update my last post. But internet slowed down.

Deciphered your link, stopped driver sign-in. Driver loaded

Now connected.

In the meantime had to delete Mystuff, so Missus could watch Tennis.

Tommorow hopefully I'll check Toppy disc/files with Topmanager.

Thanks again!

Gwyn

Good outcome. Full MyStuff 6.6 installation pack deployed while Toppy was recording on 2 channels. A reboot or two & MS is now fully operational.
Thanks to all concerned.

I suspect your initial problem may have been caused by a bad EPG file (seeing the file system was ok).

Suggest you post the MyInfo log.

When you get your other toppy back from andyfras, I suggest you also install MS 6.6 on that (the installer will add my PruneEPG tap).

Geoff

It already has MS 6.6, but TopManager picked up that it was loading PCControl after EPG2MEI, which was causing a reboot sometimes. I added PruneEPG (presumably the MS installer wasn't used to update MS).

I don't think I had written PruneEPG when MS 6.6 was released i.e. early adopters may not have it even if they used the installer.

If necessary, TM moves PcControl to the first tap to be loaded - I think I changed the mechanism at some point so that it always checks/reorders (the original implementation probably just reordered once as it installed the tap).

Its been so long since I touched my Toppys, I've forgotten what's on the Toppy now in Fleet.

You have to love these machines: sophisticated, free-to-air, low maintainance, selective viewing.

MS 6.6 installer & TM, so effective & user friendly.

I'll post that log over the next few days Geoff and implement any action you kind gents might suggest

Missus very pleased, has had a day of French Open Tennis, while Toppy records progs which interest me.

Earlier on, they were definitely not set and forget, but I suppose mine is too now, till it goes wrong...
