Re: TopManager V7.0

Following last weekend's change to Toppy.org.uk, TopManager is unable to change your signature using the "Tools| Update Forum Profile ..." option This is because the forum web pages to perform this function have changed (TM can't obtain or set your forum signature) I will need to reprogram...

Re: Hello again ...

Many thanks Nigel. Not sure I like the style as it is not making full use of the screen on my desktop (perhaps it is designed/chosen to be "Mobile friendly"?). One thing I initially missed was an obvious "posts since last visit" link. For others who use this feature, it is in &qu...

Thanks Andy I would have held out longer but lockdown was a good opportunity to convert as I couldn't go anywhere. It would probably be easier to have gone with another provider but google is free and I also need to convert a ukulele site. The hardest bit was working out how to get my programs to ac...

GCB MyStuff Installer 2.0 Google is forcing web site owners to convert their sites to "New Google Sites" (NGS); the GeeCeeBee web site is using what is now called "Classic Google Sites". One of the main changes is that file attachments cannot be used in NGS; they have to be store...

The storage on a toppy disk is divided into, at most, about 132000 units called clusters. Clusters on a 2GB disk are larger than those on a 1GB disk. Files on the disk consist of one or more clusters. These clusters do not need to be contiguous - they can be scattered anywhere on the disk. When the ...

A recording file contains the VIDpId and AUDpid fields (in the first 512 bytes) I suspect these have been corrupted (perhaps audio works because the toppy can still determine the AUDpid?). To watch the file, copy it to the pc and try to play with VLC (I think this gives you the capability of changin...

Hi Phil, Sorry about the missing file - I must have removed it when cleaning up my Google Drive. Close TM and rerun (no need to reinstall)- the message should no longer appear (I had to run it twice - I suspect that it took a copy from the pc's cache the first time). You can fix the LCN 68 in 2 ways...

Minor changes to Freeview channels:- LCN=73 Name=Drama +1 (was CCXTV) LCN=82 Name=Together TV (was LCN 87) LCN=84 Name=PBS America (was LCN 91) I have uploaded new versions of Freeview.dat and Freeview(Scotland).dat onto the new, yet unpublished, GeeCeeBee site. TM 7.0 should detect these and provid...

That makes sense; it will only honour your choice of Freeview after it knows what it is! (on a first install, it chooses Freeview.dat)

Cheers

@jimi Thanks for that - it should work fine on Win10 because that is what I use. I'm a bit surprised that it wanted to install a Freeview.dat file as it should have looked in the TM settings file and offered you the Scottish version (assuming that is what you had previously selected). - I'll check t...

Have you ever had all the capacitors changed on either of these toppies? If not, then that is probably your problem (the power supply unit is failing). I believe swapping tuners is not possible but you could swap the power supply boards if they are the same and one has had all the capacitors changed...
