So according to the code, the nags appear the first time you access the Archive or the Now&Next view (provided that access is at least 10 minutes after MS started), and then again on every Archive/ Now&Next access that occurs at least 24 hours after the last nag. No idea why that means some ...

Yeah this message was baked into the last release and set to trigger at some unimaginable time in the future, by which time a new version would have been released with a later date. Obviously that didn’t happen :) I was myself surprised when the message started appearing on my tv! I can’t rememb...

Geoff has asked me (thanks for alerting me to this thread Geoff, and for all your work in keeping the installer going). Having dug out my old site/ftp details (it has been a long time since the site was last updated) I discovered the connection didn't work. I think this will be because of the recent...

Yes, just to confirm it is highly unlikely that there will be another version. There are many reasons for this: 1. Ever increasing ways to watch tv (leading to a reduction in the userbase) 2. No HD option on the toppy 3. Most of the MyStuff Team members have themselves moved onto other devices. I am...

Let me add my thanks for all the time, money and effort you have spent in providing this site, and hosting (amoung others) my MyStuff page. As others have said, do whatever you need to/want to do, especially if that leaves the site up and running. I doubt very much that there will be any MyStuff TAP...

So do you have Ds displayed for any other Searches (ones that stay around after reboots I mean)?

My word, it's been a long time since I looked at the MS code! OK, so this error is displayed when the following is true: 1) You have asked to display a screen that relies on EPG information (so the EPG itself, or the Now&Next screen, or any of the variants on those) 2) There is an active recordi...

Re: Vaguely interesting response to a power glitch?

So presumably that means that MS will receive no further updates? Yeah, probably not. With the rise of so many other ways to watch, and catch up on, TV and the lack of any HD provision for the Toppy, it just really doesn't seem to be worth the effort. The target audience is declining (even on the M...

I still use my Toppy as the main recording device. I have a YouView box too, which I only use when I need to set a recording away from home or want an HD recording. SWMBO also has a Toppy as her only recording device. Does anyone else, when searching for location location location on a Tuesday on ch...

Example For a recording of one hour at 21:00 on 13/04/2015 the header record contains Start= 201504132100 and end= 201504132200 , (Note: I have invented these numbers as I no longer have the relevant output file).

Yup, I'm unlikely to get enough enthusiasm up for any change for a while, unless it is a spectacularly good new feature. Something like this (which may make sense, but confused me very early on in the numbered list!) is not very likely to see the light of day :). Sorry. Modifying the RecordedInfo.da...

And thank you for having made MyStuff available in the first place. Without it I doubt I'd still be using my Toppies. My pleasure. I've had a lot of fun (and a lot of pain!) working on MyStuff over the years. Occasionally I have need to run a Toppy without MyStuff (mainly when the development build...

I'm still here :) Not done much work on MyStuff for a very long time, although my internal build version does contain a few changes from the current release. It is hard to get up the enthusiasm to make changes and add new features these days. The increase of HDTV (and the lack of support for that on...
