I sent an email to Gerti about the reboot problem. He replied swiftly with:

'We still tried to find the reason, but ImproBox is doing nothing when this happens.
Can you send me the Firmware and your Receiver settings (extracted with TopSet)?'

It will be a few days before I can send him the details. If anyone can send him this sooner then he might be able to get on with a fix.
His email address is gerti@gerti.de
Firmware: 5.13.40.

Thanks to Gerti, version 2.4 is out which fixes the long-awaited UK only timeslip+channel change=reboot problem. Get it from http://www.improbox.de/improbox24.zip

What exactly is the communication between Improbox and Filer?

The HDD-space shown by IB is added by the recyclebin-space, Filer is reporting.
Also the HDD-space for timeshift set in Filer (standard= 1889 MB) is reduced in the reported IB-HDD-space.

You can see the recyclebin-space bei opening IB and pressing "V-" until you see the HDD-dialog.

Can anyone advice me how I can delete the improbox licence key from my Toppy?

Many Thanks.

I don't suppose anyone knows if Improbox supports the De patch, rather than DescriptionExtender?

It doesn't. I have requested support for it on the German forum several times. However, uncharacteristically and for some unknown reason, Gerti has not added DE patch support :roll:

Gerti (if you're still reading this thread),

This is another request for you to update Improbox to support the Description Extender Patch (rather than the Description Extender TAP).

Australian TF5000PVRt user now have a new firmware that the Description Extender TAP doesn't support (but the Description Extender firmware Patch does).

Improbox is the only TAP that I use that doesn't support the Description Extender Patch.

simonc (Description Extender Patch developer) indicates the change should be very easy.
Thanks,
kidhazy.

I have also requested DE patch support for improbox on behalf of a group of Finnish Toppy users.

I also tried to give all the necessary information how to implement it.

I so frustrated using short descriptions that I will start using infoviewer etc TAP instead.

For what it's worth, I'm still using the Description Extender TAP, without any problems.
