Re: Error Message: firmware was changed with a latest one

If the HDD is causing issues, it might be worth reformatting it outside the box if you can (after you've transferred anything you want to keep). Formatting on a PC will have the wrong setup for the Toppy's file system. Or do you have a spare SATA drive around that you could plug in. It should offer...

Re: Error Message: firmware was changed with a latest one

Thanks Geoff. I can't 'see' the HDD with Antares, because it reports Not Connected. I can transfer EmptySettings or Recommended Firmware files, but when I re-boot the box the error message appears and the box will not respond to the remote. I tried booting the Toppy with the HDD disconnected. The er...

Re: Error Message: firmware was changed with a latest one

If Antares can't see the toppy, emptysettings will never get transferred across. Antares reports Device not connected, but the EmptySettings files are transferred across. @Geoff I can't get to the Systems menu. I contacted andyfras. He suggested trying to boot with the HDD disconnected. I'll try ag...

Re: Error Message: firmware was changed with a latest one

Just noticed that you said that GCBMyStuffInstaller didn't detect the toppy. This uses the same mechanism as TopManager so am I right in assuming that that it also can't connect. You can only have one connection to the toppy (however, both TM and the installer should warn you if another program is ...

I can't access the menu and the Toppy doesn't respond to the remote control. The remote control resonse light flashes in the d...

Just searching for that on the site brings up loads of info about firmware, TAPs and patches. Searching for "firmware has changed" "view topic" site:toppy.org.uk brings up a list of forum posts with this error. https://www.google.com/search?q=%22firmware+has+changed%22+%22view+t...

Re: Error Message: firmware was changed with a latest one

Hi @Geoff These are two threads that I have found. The solution was to load EmptySettings, but I've done that and the problem persists. I'm giving up for the time being.

Re: Error Message: firmware was changed with a latest one

Thank you for your replies. The OP seems to have run EmptySettings correctly EmptySettings ran correctly, but the error messgae was still there when I re-booted the Toppy. Unfortunately, a google search of this site (google: firmware has changed site:toppy.org.uk ) picks up loads of answers, but non...

Error Message: firmware was changed with a latest one

I am trying to bring a TF5810 into use that has been in storage for a few years. It has had little use and since new and it was working when I put it in its box. The capacitors have been replaced by Andyfras I put a new battery in the front panel and connected it up. It went through the initial boot...

Do you really need them? Probably not, but I wanted to get back to where I was before. @Geoff I did as you suggested and the patches are now installed. As ccs said, I re-ran MyStuff installer without the firmware, but I re-formatted the HDD first. The idea was to have a fresh start, but in retrospe...

Hi Geoff

I've just noticed that U and Uu are on my signature, but that was from before I started the re-installing. They aren't there now. I'll update my signature later.
