I think it may be a faulty tuner, especially as I get nothing when I pass through tuner 1.

grrrr....we love our Toppy, so simple but also loads of features other PVRs dont offer. I hear that the 5810 is pants though, its had terrible reviews even from Toppy stalwarts.

Have sorted it now I think...... Had the SCART in the EXT 2 port on my TV which is composite not RGB. Have swapped it to the RGB EXT 1 and much better! :) Anyone tried component on YUV via scart adapter? Am finding the return to the Toppy after a SKY HD box, even on SD channels a bit of a struggle.

My Stuff and NTSC?

Have just dusted my Toppy down after a year of being stuck with SKY and it feels good to be back. I am finding the picture from my Toppy to my Plasma TV via scart much crisper set on NTSC. However, all the My Stuff menu and logos are all screwed...looks like they have been smeared across the screen....

Then did a factory reset and scan. All sorted. Rebooted and My Stuff was sorted in the right order too and started forming ...

Due to me last using my Toppy a year ago, I installed the latest version of My Stuff and did a channel rescan. Now all of t...

Upscaling from 5800

Not really a Toppy topic I suppose, however.... I am thinking of getting a new Philips HD Plasma TV ro replace what now seems a mammoth CRT in the corner of our front room. Will the TV upscale an input from SCART or does it have to be through the HDMI input? If so, do I have do buy an adaptor or are...

:)

Have installed 5.5 about a week ago and finding it much quicker. Also the remote issue (not responding - having to wait 30 secs etc) seems to be happening less. Love the fact that Excluding recordings is much quicker, none of that Searching between each one. Just one thing - I cant seem to rewind on...

Just flashed the firmware, which was successful. But still got the C4.56 looping problem! :( So....reflashed the software again but left it at that so at least I can put the unit in standby (only way otherwise it loops and loops). Well at least I have the clock now (hehe). It did show me that it isn...
