You can only see TAP files when browsing with the native toppy mechanism i.e. your folders will look empty unless they ane a .tap in them. Hello Geoff, When browsing with the Toppy interface I cannot see ChannelOrganiser.tap, nor can I open the Auto Start (or other) folder to view the taps there. I...

First, use Altair to delete all .mei files from ProgramFiles. Then see if your Toppy will boot normally. You will need to wait for a while for the EPG to repopulate. Hello andyfras, I deleted EPG.mei and EPG_diff.mei. The Toppy does not boot normally, just this far.... http://www.higgs.me.uk/toppy/...

6 weeks on, and I've had another lockup. After a VF&F the Toppy will now only boot if I hold the zero key on the remote. If I try and browse Program Files, I can only see 4 folders, but cannot navigate into them. Altair can 'see' the contents, though. http://www.higgs.me.uk/toppy/ProgramFiles/ S...

Hello Julie, thanks for the reply. It looks like all the recordings are intact. One might be corrupt, only 258MB for a 1hr35 recording. The 5800 is 15 months old, and has an attenuator on the RF input, as I'm close to the transmitter. This is the 4th time this has happened now, and I posted about it...

Re-install MS6.3

My 5800 locked up again yesterday evening, and I had to pull the plug on it. It will now only boot if I hold down the 0 key. None of the files in 'Program Files' are showing up, just 4 folders which I cannot open. MPEG StreamClip was able to download the contents of 'Program Files'. http://www.higgs...

The Freeview website also claims I won't be able Freeview until next year. Strange as I've just had to put a 12db attenuator on my Toppy feed!

I'm pretty sure the duplicate channels are a recent thing. I was using Channel Organiser to restrict tuning to Aerial group C/D, and to delete unwanted channels. I think it must have occurred after the last 'Lock-Up' about 3 weeks ago, when I restored factory defaults, and rescanned. I'm not sure ho...

Running the Signal Monitor TAP may be useful.
Yes I do seem to have duplicates. All the MuxD channels have an entry for Ch.33 and 61!
