No ITV2+1?

Post by bpascua »

Hello All,

I noticed today that i dont have the ITV2+1 (the kids did at any rate!) I am running the latest MS version (i have a 5800). I suspect I need to do a channel rescan or maybe I opted to delete it when I did the last MS install (3 months ago?)
Is it Channel Organiser I need to run to rescan the current transmitter? and then choose any channels I dont want....

thanks and sorry for being a numpty...

thanks

Brian

That should do it. But remember not to let it do everything on auto because it may have remembered what you deleted last time and do the same again. So make sure that you set the Delete to be manually checked before deletion so that you can change the setting for ITV2+1.

Hello,

I ran through CO and I set the option to only delete illegal channels and to let me edit the list. I cant see ITV2+1 in the list? is there some other option I need to flip or is this channel not available from my Hannington transmitter?

thanks

Roughly how many channels did it find? I can see 120+ tv and radio channels.

Hannington is a main transmitter and carries all the normal channels. However, if you are on one of the relay transmitters from Hannington then you will not get ITV2+1, only ITV2.

I have another TV with a built in freeview setup that hangs off the same aerial as my toppy....that gets ITV2+1....so surely the relay theory cant be true?

Posting a MyInfo log file might help establish which transmitter you're using.

These are the choices.

Try typing in the ITV2 +1 channel number (27) on the remote.
If that works then you need to add ITV2+1 to your favorites list and/or remove any restriction in the EPG2MEI.ini file

If the above doesn't work then you will need to do a rescan.
You can do this with CO or, if you have a windows pc, using TopManager and the PcControl tap.

To use TM
1) install (from link in my signature)
2) Connection| Settings
2a) Define a USB (probably) connection
2b) Open
3) Tools| Install PcControl
4) reboot toppy
5) PcControl| Show Menus
5a) PcControl| Channel Management
6) Select "Identify my transmitter" in top combo box
6a) Set restrictions to at least 3
6b) Select hanninton
7) Perform Scan
8 ) Right click in display and "select all pay, porn etc"
8a) Delete Channels
8b) Finalize

If you need to add ITV2+1 to the favourites file, use PcControl| Edit Favourites.

Alternatively, you can do similar things using CO and/or manually editing the EPG2MEI.ini file.

Once you have the channels sorted out, please post the MyInfo Log file so that others can check it out. Using TM, this is
1) reboot toppy (easier than manually running MyInfo)
2) Wait 2 mins and Display| MyInfo Log
3) Ctrl A (select all), Ctrl C (copy), add to this thread and Ctrl V (paste).

You can then use TM to set up a forum signature
1) Tools| Update Forum Profile
2) Build...

TM has many other features that you should find useful.

Hello All,

Overwhelmed with the help here as normal. so thank you.

OK if I hit 27 I get no channel. so its not a fav thing. Here is myinfo, I can only run it when I stop all the taps (with zero) as I dont know how to do it with MS running..

Myinfo is way out of date. You have v4.1 but Myinfo is now at v5.6

Using this version will also give a list of Muxes and channels you can see.

I suggest you download the new version and run it again.

With Mystuff etc running just press archive twice and you will get the native archive then press rewind once and you will see the program files folder click on Myinfo there.

Not sure what version of MyStuff and MyInfo you have on your toppy (you may have more than one MyInfo).

You probably need to reinstall the latest version [edit]as the MyInfo.ini is out of date as well as the tap[/edit]
If you can use TopManager, then
1) Tools| Install Files| MyInfo
2) reboot toppy and wait 2 mins
3) CtrlA, CtrlC, CtrlV as my previous post.

Please say whether or not you have a windows pc; if you don't then I can stop telling you how to do it with TM!

ITV2+1 is on Mux 41 which is missing from your toppy.

This means that you need to do a rescan and "refrain" from deleting it.
Either use CO or TM (as previously described).

You also have some invalid recordings. I suggest you use Altair or Antares to delete them (this will prevent the errors being logged by MyInfo)
