Hi
I've just tried downloading from your web page, but the zip download links seem to be broken - is the toppy-fs app still available?

I think it's little endian I'm after, for an ARM-based pogoplug mobile.

Thanks Julie I'd already found your review as virtually the first result when I googled in the toppy context. I hear that bubbleupnp can definitely cast from local (phone) storage to chromecast. This excellent app also supports playing from network storage, and the author has also created a useful s...

Chromecast solutions

Hi Now that chromecast has launched, I am turning my mind to how toppy videos might be cast to it. With a smart linux box and some decent storage attached to my toppy, I'm thinking I could build up a small library of videos pre-transcoded from the toppy, ready to cast out around the house (or if lin...

Well as the problem lies with the widely used ftpd-topfield for me, rather than the patch, I can't believe it's a big problem otherwise it would have been flagged up and fixed before now. So unless the slug can be fixed using the same method, it looks like something is a little quirky with my Asus, ...

? The 'original' source of ftpd-topfield, libtopfield and puppy do seem to have USE_LIBUSB http://puppy.cvs.sourceforge.net/puppy/ OK, so Birdman's link to the original ftpd-topfield was correct, but that original version DOES contain compilation functionality for USE_LIBUSB. To be clear, the origi...

An interesting statement, since my patch actually adds the USE_LIBUSB variable then setting it to any value when the patch isn't there has no meaning! Ah, well I took you at face value when you said the following ... : ) ftpd‑topfield‑0.7.7.tar.gz The original ftpd‑top...

Well for me it is nothing to do with Birdman's patch; the version of ftpdtopfield that his patch is applied to also fails to work if USE_LIBUSB is set to 1. Strange that it works on one Asus gx and not another when both use same firmware and same libusb. I've now got Birdman's wonderful patch workin...

Hi Birdman are you able to "ipkg -list_installed" on you wl500gx so I can crosscheck against my own non-working setup?

No it doesn't, but his puppy compile does. wget http://birdman.dynalias.org/R2-D2/mips/ftpd That's ftpd-topfield, not puppy. Yes I know, sorry my post wasn't clear. Your puppy build works, but your fdtpd-topfield doesn't for me on my wl500gx 9.2-10 firmware, and the rest of my post was then a serie...

I am getting similar errors on my wl500gx. Compiling the 0.7.7 version works fine. 0.7.7.n gives me connectivity errors. Everything seems fine and similar between the two - based on diagonstic messages - up to the point where the usb_bulk_write and/or usb_bulk_read functions are called for the first...

Just an update for the archive. I tried another facelift toppy on my aerial. Signal strength was at 40%, quality at 30% on ITV versus my black panther one in the 90s. As this did not match my "oscilalting" signal strength for my own facelift model, I plugged that one in again. It no longer...

Interesting - what distinguishes the old silver tuner from the new worse tuner in a black panther? (Apart from pixellations!)

The kit I supply currently contains 11 capacitors and costs £5.50 inc. p&p. Sounds good to me, am considering getting enough for both toppies if I can repair the front panel easily. Is it recommended to change capacitors for toppies of a certain age always, regardless of voltage measurements, o...
