You really need my PruneEPG tap (obtain from my TopManager link below).... also need EPG2MEI
Geoff


Is there a reason those haven't been added to the forum's list of TAPs, here?:

https://www.toppy.org.uk/downloads/taps.php?tc=all

Isn't there anyone administrating that any more?

I see. Thanks, jimi. That doesn't bode well for the future of the forum.

I'd forgotten how confusing the presentation of the TAP library was - there's a page which gives the impression there aren't all that many, then if you dig a bit more, you find the full list. Less than ideal.

Having a full list at all was good though. It gave some structure to it. Finding out about things anecdotally can work, but an organised list is better.

I noticed the search has gone a bit wrong too, depending on which search box you use.

You need to look at the TopManager site or the forum thread for info about TM.
The link you gave on the forum about TM is very old and like all the "list of taps" will never be updated again (there is no one to do it!)

TM does work on XP through Win 10

I think I've retuned 5 times this year for various reasons - maintaining your text files would be a royal PITA. Basically TM will connect if Altair connects. With TM, retuning becomes the work of a few minutes, with no maintenance required of lists of MUXes to be removed.

Software gets upgraded or replaced for a reason, and people stop using old software that doesn't work very well for a reason. The Freeview landscape has changed dramatically in the past 15 years since the Toppy was designed, and it is coping way beyond what it was designed for. But with recent TAPs like PruneEPG, it's still able to function at a reasonable level.

But not always to the benefit of the user. For example, an app on my Android tablet was updated two weeks ago to give it a new front page. Nothing wrong with the old front page either aesthetically or functionally as far as I could see but the update broke the login functionality so I could not stream the live football commentary which is The One Thing It Had To Do.

At a guess the app rebuild picked up the wrong version of one of the library modules. Thankfully a bug fix was dropped yesterday so I could listen to today's match.

But the moral of the story is if it ain't broke don't fix it!

But it didn't try to "fix" it. They released a completely new and better TAP, so a different approach entirely

What was the app, if you don’t mind me asking?
