I don't use a Toppy at all these days (though I have it somewhere in the house), and thus don't really frequent these forums much, but just let me know by email if there are issues with getting ToFi or MacTF to run and I'll see what I can do (though I may not be able to test changes). In the case of...

I'll delete the SBS & ABC ones first and then rescan. Yeah, the first time I tried to record GO! I had a problem as the Toppy had a duplicate of lcn99 (the old listing), so it (or JE?) got confused. So definitely worth it to prune any old channel info from the channel list. So to sort of summar...

Not yet, but Wikipedia has an .svg that you could use to convert from.

Adding channels (7TWO, etc) to MacTF-EPG

Hi, just some instructions for getting 7TWO (and any further future channels like ABC3) to work in MacTF-EPG v2 and above. 1. Navigate to ~/Library/Application Support/MacTF-EPG 2. Open the file channelMap.txt 3. Add the new entry on a new line, based on what the new channel is listed in the xmltv.x...

Maybe I'm just slow but upon reading John's post on DTVinfo, I've only just realised that the 2400 is actually linux-based, and if you can get "forbidden" code to run using that jailbreak method, possibly you could incorporate an mDNS server in your TAP anyway if it isn't a feature of the ...

Yeah, the EyeTV app looks slick but haven't tried it yet.

I don't suppose the 2400 has Bonjour (zeroconf) built in? One can always hope...

Woohoo! :D

If that is possible, then I take back all the above. Then it is even better - the iPhone app can talk to the box directly without the Mac in the middle doing the interpreting :)

That's sort of what I meant. You have to talk to the TAP somehow. You could place the info in a tiny file (say via FTP/HTTP) and have the TAP read it, generate the event and then delete it. Presumably that involves the TAP polling for the file pretty regularly too in order to be responsive. Not sure...

It's a bit of a shame they've removed the USB TAP functions compared to the 5000 API. Sure, they were buggy as hell in default firmware and thus useless, but now that they were patched and I started to finally use them with my iPhone remote, I find out they no longer exist for the new API. :cry: So ...

Thanks for the info. I was playing around yesterday and got the iPhone remote app working (well, changing channels at least, I still need to hook up all the other buttons properly). So it works as a proof-of-concept at the very least :)

I just wanted to resurrect this old thread to thank you all for these patches. Years ago (literally) I was fiddling around with direct USB communications and had a TAP/Mac app combo (called VirtualRemote) that sent remote control commands via USB (as well as nifty stuff like sending mini screenshots...

The older v1.2, and maybe 1.3, should work fairly fine with modern macs, and AppleScript should be OK in both of those (not sure about 1.3, I forget where I changed the code and accidently broke it?). The later v2 betas are very crashy on multi-processor machines due to nasty threading bugs that wer...

None as far as I know. One report said it worked after changing which model Toppy was selected in the prefs, but that should be completely unrelated (as it only changes how previews are handled).

Hmm, as far as I know there is no "update" to the codec - it should just work. Although I think there may be a PPC and an Intel version, check which you have downloaded from Apple.
