Hi, I didn't use the installer (I'm on a Mac).

Could someone tell me about this new file which allows prefixes like "New:" to be automagically included in searches? I can't see anything obvious in the MyStuff/Settings folder.

thanks, Mark

Thanks very much to the Team. Not had much chance to play yet. I'm sure I'll be back with some questions ;)

Yeah I've just come across this one as well

Exactly the same symptoms, exactly the same fix (move to TextSearch)

I'm on Redruth and have not noticed any problems on PSB2 or anything else. Truro area, fairly crummy antenna in the loft. Clear line of sight to Redruth.

Andy reported that my PSU was in reasonable shape, so I guess my HDD crash was not PSU related. Perhaps sometimes they just go. We had an awful lot of power outages at the time, maybe a power spike got the disk.

Happy to have an AndyFras approved PSU anyway, should be good for a while now.

Before the reboot, MS knows exactly which channels it needs to rescan because of the change to the Search, as each series crid should only be on one channel. After a reboot it does a more thorough scan, and is perhaps picking up things that shouldn't really be there, if the broadcaster is sharing c...

Yeah I am trying to exclude some of the Series 2 episodes I've already got. To make it even more complicated I am CutFiling them, renaming them series.dot.episode, then pulling them off to an external HDD. Head splitting, I wish I'd never started. MyStuff's file by series is useful. I'd forgotten ho...

Nyaaarrgghh they have come back. A recording has just finished, and my full set of 5 excluded Escape To The Country episodes are back. Excluded from a TextSearch. My How It's Made and M*A*S*H episodes seem to still be excluded though. I have a similar (related?) problem which goes like this:- PowerS...

Clear as mud ;) It looks to me like Excludes and EpisodeExcludes only get written when MS closes down. I don't understand how Excludes are partitioned between the two, in particular I've excluded 4 MASH episodes from a PS which aren't in either as far as I can see. But not to worry, I was just think...

Thanks all So how does MS know I've excluded some Escape To The Country episodes? That text string doesn't exist in MyStuff_EpisodeExcludes.dat or in MyStuff_Excludes.dat. And it does seem to know, because the excludes have "stuck" overnight and are still excluded this morning. They show w...

I wonder if my MyStuff_Searches.dat is corrupt? It seems to include a bunch of cruft, e.g. some Xmas special searches that I deleted months ago. They don't appear in the search list on screen, but they seem to be lurking in MyStuff_Searches.dat. So my next question... what's in MyStuff_Searches.dat....

I notice that my MyStuff_EpisodeExcludes.dat does not seem to get updated when I exclude an episode, or when I shut the Toppy down? edit: it did get updated this time. But it contains a list of ancient stuff from months ago, not the stuff I excluded just now? MyStuff_Excludes.dat contains gobbledego...

Difficulty excluding episodes??

Hi, as it says. Eg TextSearch for Escape To The Country, I want to exclude 5 timers, so I highlight them in Timers by Name using Blue, and delete/exclude using white. They disappear from the timer list. But restart the Toppy and they're back. Sometimes they are marked with a red R, sometimes a yello...
