The ones dated 28/1/20 are those that are affected and will cause issues for anyone rescanning with TM (obviously no issue if you don't rescan!)

Cheers, I wasn't planning a rescan at the moment, but you never know, so I've updated to the latest version via TM.

Me too :D .

While I had the Toppy connected I ran TM Tools>Check MyStuff. There was a red line saying that the is a syntactic error in the EPG2mei.ini file. Is this of any significance? The Toppy seems to be working OK.

As above, I just ran the same check on mine, didn't get any errors. Bearing in mind I use Freeview(Scotland).dat

I'm not seeing any error on my system (but then I am tweaking TM so aren't using the same version.

@fhjones - did it give an indication of which line was an issue? (possible caused when you cut and pasted the file). If you rescan (use CO?), this file would be rewritten and I would expect the error to disappear. Bearing in mind what started this thread, you might just prefer to leave it for now!

@jimi - your file contains restricted channels so you haven't rescanned with the new file.

Good spot ccs

I suspect that fhj has the word "Code:" at the start of the file

My last rescan was in November, there's been no changes the require me to rescan, so I'll leave it for now.
What effect do the restrictions have ? everything appears normal on my Toppy
Looking through my TM snapshots, the oldest is May 2019 and that EPG2MEI.ini has restrictions in it

I explained previously that all Start and End times had been set to 0000 (i.e. no restrictions is now the norm)

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I have uploaded new versions of Freeview.dat and Freeview(Scotland).dat onto the new, yet unpublished, GeeCeeBee site.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 provide a button to update the file on the toppy.

Note: I have not update these files on the current visible GeeCeeBee site i.e. TM 6.2 won't detect that new files are available.

Re: Freeview.dat and FvTxData.tsv

I've just updated both Freeview files on GeeCeeBee site.

Easiest way to update is to run the TopManager (7.0 or above)
