Okay it looks like the logo dat files can take a 23 character service name. But it also looks like the Toppy also has this 23 character limit for service names in it's channel list. Thinking about it... the rec file format could also have this 23 character limit for the service name.

Is there anyone in Manchester that can tell me what name gets stored on the Toppy for LCN 62. Digital UK has the service name as "Sony Movies Christmas +1".

This is 24 characters long. So does the Toppy drop the "1"? Or is the name actually 23 characters long and there is no space between "Christmas" and "+1"?
i.e. is the name "Sony Movies Christmas+1".

For now I'll put a logo for LCN 62 in the pack.

My ToppyDiskMedic program defines the service name field as an array of 0 to 23 characters i.e. the field length is 24 characters (although one of these may need to be a null byte to indicate the end of the string)
Note: for a 5810, I define it as 0 to 27 chars i.e. 28 chars

So ideally, you need to know what the name is on both a TF5800 and a TF5810.

Logo packs updated.

Sony has dropped or renamed a lot of it's channels. So most of the True channels have gone along with movies4men. Can't remember what's gone and what's become what other than movies4men is now Sony Movies Action.

Thanks Geoff. I did wonder if there was a difference between the TF5800 and TF5810. I've checked what Makelogos does with long names. It puts a null byte at the end of the name except when the name is 23 chars or more. Long names are trimmed to the first 23 chars. So I have replicated this behaviour in my script. I've also got a check for duplicate names. But a logo for the LCN number should work if the name gets trimmed.

Not much of an update. The remaining True channels have now gone and Racing UK has changed its name to Racing TV. Also NOW 90s is back but I'm not sure it will work on the toppy.

Make sure you have the latest version of Freeview.dat (I updated it about 2 weeks ago but didn't "announce" it)

Has the Smithsonian Channel and PBS America not made it into the logo packs yet, or am I having an issue with channel naming?

Thanks,

H.

Apologies Halibut

My script that picks up changes is broken so I missed them. Noticed it when Discovery renamed Home to HGTV. I'm working on putting the logos in my packs.

No apologies necessary. I think it's amazing that you're still updating them. Installing them this weekend will give me a good excuse to see if I can get my new laptop working with the Toppy.

Logo packs updated.

Finally got round to fixing my script that gets LCN and channel details. So hopefully I'm catching any changes now. Here are a few that I missed.

Added logos for NOW 70s and CCX TV and put Jewellery Maker back in.
