Re: Anybody still using a Toppy as their main viewing platform?

I have just got a Quad HDHomeRun box. It ingrates with Plex and gives live TV and recording. My Toppy is now only used to feed Freeview via RF to the little TV in the kitchen. The Toppy has given great service. Thanks to MyStuff it has been used long beyond the time any other device would have lasted.

The Slug was a great device when it came out. I was thinking about what I could do with it when I have finished with the Toppy. Nowadays it is not much use. I have a few NAS to provide online storage and printers all work online now.

RIP SLUG.

I still have one Toppy on the go. I still talk to it via a Slug (do you remember them?).

MyStuff is the standard that I judge all others by. Still it is usually better than any modern offering. The main thing is that it was enhanced by the feedback of ebthuseastic users. This means that it does just about everthing nerds want. :-)

I happened to have that very one open in a tab. £478 is a lot more than the Humax Aura 4K Android TV Recorder . What do you get that is worth the extra £200?

Enigma boxes seem to concentrate in satellite signals. I only want terrestrial.

Do you know of any Freeview recorders with an RF modulator? I find the Toppy feed to the kitchen very valuable.

I have had a look at the current ones. They do seem to be aimed at satelite reception but some do have one terrestial tuner as well.

Which box do you use? On investigation I discovered that Enigma 2 is an operating system and not a receiver. If you have had yours for some years I would presume that there is an improved model available.

It would be difficult to find anything as good as MyStuff. It was developed with input of many keen users. All the good ideas went into it. Therefore it is almost perfect. I don't think manufacturers are prepared to put the effort into their software that was put into MyStuff.

The end of an era.

I have three still in use with a couple of spares. There is nothing to compare to a Toppy running MyStuff.

I have a number of NowTV boxes running Plex for streaming from my server and catchup.
