An update Finally today we had some time to sort this. I walked my brother through installing the latest HDFW, mystuff, and related FW. I then did the rest remotely - now I have a proper channel lineup :-) Thanks for all your help. J Might be tempted by something like this in the future: http://www....

Nope he knows nothing about the Toppy. It's sat quietly away doing it's own thing for me, whilst he continues to use Sky Plus :-)

He does have a PC and a Mac so installing stuff shouldn't be too tricky, it's just something like this strikes me as error-prone :-(

My brother is not that technical. I figured that I could probably get him to install a tap, that I can then play with remotely. Asking for a full factory reset, firmware change, channel scan etc might be pushing it.... As a bonus - there's a good chance that I already have HDFW on the Toppy already ...

LCN in 1000s but no physical access to Toppy...help!

So I've recently moved to the US. A day or so before I left the UK, I hooked my Toppy up to a Slingbox over at my brother's. I did a channel scan, and left it working, but didn't think anything of the slightly odd channels in the 1000s :( I now come to try using the Toppy, to find that it's a tad tr...

Thanks for the replies folks. As far as I can tell skins aren't yet supported on Mac, so I'll have to tweak the MyStuff settings...

Hi I've recently purchased a Slingbox Pro and have it hooked up to my Toppy. I'm using Slingplayer on a Mac. I have a few questions though :-) Juwlz's post has helped me set up the Slingplayer best I can, but: * Is there a Toppy remote skin about? There's mention of one, but I've never seen one! * C...

Vaguely related - is it possible with MS to mark a programme as "unwatched" ( reset the play count to 0 )? We watch a lot of programmes in 2 or more sittings; this can make it tricky to distinguish these from programmes that I've quickly looked at to identify (from other episodes of the sa...

Check out wikipedia . Lots of info there. You probably want to look at this for ubuntu too. But...Yellow Dog (YDL) was the first distro available, and there's more info about it. Also check out the IBM developer site - http://www-128.ibm.com/developerworks/power/library/pa-linuxps3-1/ . You'll also ...

I received the Lloyds phishing email too last night, to toppy@someolddomainihave, which I *don't* use for toppy.org.uk (though may have in the past - is there anyway you can check Nigel?). Unfortunately I can't remember what site it's used for :( However, it will be a toppy related site*, given my e...
