Well, that was a disaster. Removed the / and the whole post evaporated! I'll see if I can remember what I said, here goes I have just enlarged the holes below the fan rather than make one big hole; just a bit more protection for the fan when handling the box. I will try to post photos when I'm done....

jimi I can't see the images either; for some reason your original post appears as the draft format. I just cut the urls out which displayed the image and I saved them. The Blacknoise fan is back in stock at overclockers. So impressed I just ordered another one for second toppy rather than use the on...

Case mods?

Hi jimi Thanks for the tip over on the hard drive thread. I have two toppys. I've been lucky with power supplies I think as my Toppys do not have anything powered they sit on and are on open shelves. However, one has just required PSU caps and the other needs a new hard disk so thought I'd do fans. ...

Andy, you get everywhere. Next thing is to decide on an adapter. I've trawled all of the out of date data on that thread; again like disks nothing recent. I fancy the Newlink one with the built in cable assuming I can be sure that is what I'd get. Alternative is the Starlink one; any of the cheap on...

Just wondering if anyone knows if this (SATA) disk works - Seagate ST1000VM002 1TB Video? It came from a faulty Humax DTR1010 that I failed to get working reliably which I believe is not uncommon. I thought I would try it as nothing to lose (I hope) and the list in this thread is a bit old, not surp...

Just tripped over this thread having cause to refer to forums lately. My TF5800 facelift is still in daily use. Just had to do the PSU caps (thanks Andyfras). It has the hard drive from my old original TF5800 bought in 2005. Disk is about to expire so might go for a SATA drive; I have one from a dea...

Just to confirm, I get the nags as well on a 'facelift'. As has been said just a minor inconenience. About the same time my timers and searches evaporated and I was worried they were connected but of course not as there is nothing functional about the expiry, just a message. I tried to restore but s...

Just retuned as Sony Movies asking.

Updated logos. Thanks for doing the logos gramps, keeps the guide etc looking nice.

Minor thing. - Noticed Greatest Hits Radio 716 doesn't seem to pick up a logo.

Thanks Geoff. That helps enormously. I think I will try to just clean out recordings over time by consuming or deleting those I'll never watch and get down to a core of those I want to keep. Then it won't be too much effort to switch. Planned rather than disaster recovery seems like the best approac...

Thanks Geoff. And thanks for TM.

I've had a cleanup. Will let the whole thing settle down now and see if any problems occur.

Now for the physical tidyup of aerials and wiring and need to fix or replace the distribution amp.

Okay. Up and running. After a lot of testing I found my distribution amplifier has failed. Currently running with aerial direct to toppy and loopthrough from tuner 1 to tuner 2. Rescanned with TopManager. Signal levels with TopManager show roughly 90% across all muxes both tuners, 100% quality acros...
