I upgraded to a TVonics 500HD unit. Superb UI, though no longer sold and support has all but dried up.

Also, I have an Asus 500g for sale.

For Sale: Asus WL-500g Deluxe

Offers accepted by PM. No idea what it's worth.

Comes with original PSU and extended range aerial. No box.

Works, and is currently running DD-WRT but can be reflashed to any compatible firmware (Oleg, Gargoyle, original, etc).

Cheers,
Matt

Just to say that the TVonics, with it's standard firmware is the best unit I've used. There has been a minor issue with iPlayer red button functionality, but this was fixed with a firmware update. But the rest operates really well. It turns out Pulse-Eight and RNIB co-own the TVonics stuff. So it sh...

I don't have access to the device.

I do have a meter, so with a little guidance I can get the box and take a look at it. I could try the hard drive disconnect, too.

So I'll try to find some time to make that happen.

Thanks,
matt

Hi, a friends Toppy has developed a fault where it won't stay on for more than 10 seconds, after which it resets itself. MyStuff and recordings are gone, so it must have blanked the drive. According to the chart on @andyfras website this symptom is in line with the regulator failing. Could it be any...

That was quick! New beta firmware is on the way from Pulse-Eight.

So I took the plunge and ordered a TVonics DTR-HD500 (the pebble shaped one) for £89.99 online. Cheapest I could find.

I'll let you know how it goes.

Thanks for the above.

How are the rest of you getting on with the YouView boxes?
Grown to love them? Or grown to hate them?

Thoughts appreciated...

Thanks for this, it is great news! Although the topic on this is slightly misleading. It's Pulse-Eight that has bought TVonics not XBMC. The confusion comes from Pulse-Eight being contributors to the XBMC project in that they manage their own builds including their libCEC technology. Their technolog...

Sorry, yes I meant RPC.

I try multiple times to close it via the menu or close widget. As I say, pretty sure it's something wrong with my Windows. I just don't know where to start looking to fix it, as I only use the old laptop to connect to the Toppy.

Cheers. I did a similar with around thanks to the URLs in your configuration files.

Definitely something up with my Windows install as I can't quit TopManager either. "ROC Server not found"

Quite jealous of you guys, I have to say.

Would love to try one of these, but not prepared to pay £200+ to do so!
