This mostly affects COM7/8, which the Toppy cannot receive anyway.

TBN UK has moved to a DVB-T2 multiplex, so you won't see it. NOW 90s is only on 5am-7am, at other times it's a IP streamed channel. Film4+1 should return with a retune. It's on ArqA (same as Dave) Official list of channels: https://www.freeview.co.uk/corporate/platform-management/channel-listings Ig...

That's weird. What is the model of your TV ?

I did a complete capture of Stargate SG1 and Voyager off Quest and Horror, and these were the ones I noticed. I assume you meant Pick rather than Quest. This morning I recorded Stargate on Pick and ST:TNG on Horror and both were transmitted with black bars in a 16:9 frame. On a 4:3 TV this would ap...

Well some of us are still around. Back in the day the BBC handled 4:3 pictures differently from other broadcasters, The Dumbwidescreentv TAP was used for the other channels, you needed the "Af" patch for the BBC due to a bug in the Topfield API. (Things may have changed recently, I no long...

kjhskj75 is no longer on the site (he hasn't even read my PM sent in 2014) so that list he has either kept for himself or he never received them from evil_hitman. :x I am still on the site, but I don't log in much these days (I no longer own a Toppy).

I thought it was time to bump this topic as things seem to have reached a stalemate. Perhaps a plan 'B' is needed? If "evil-hitman" can be persuaded to hand over the files he got from the Finnish site's owner, then we can perhaps resurrect it. Or at least make the TAPs available on a aite...

But what's about subtitles?
According to the manual page, avconv supports subtitles, though I have not tested it. You may need to select special options.

I would like some advise on the quickest way of converting .rec files in to mp4, avi etc with subtitles (availabl...

Re: Experience creating of xvid files from .rec

So I just wondered does anyone know of an easy way to make TV compatible files from .recs? You wlll probably find that the TVs will play MPEG-2 files as well as Xvids. This is because Freeview is built around MPEG-2 and the TV must therefore contain a decoder for it. Converting Toppy files to MPEG-...
