    Glad Guided Setup worked for you too. :up:
    I'm genuinely interested to hear how you get on with your "Toppy" (PS you need to add it to your signature).

    Hi All,
    Just noticed that my daily call crapped out on 30th Dec. I have guide data till 18/1.
    Should I also try Guided Setup ???

    Time to re-run Guided Setup? You keep all your thumbs, Season Passes and Wishlists when you do this.

    The Topfield is good in so far as it supports a fair degree of customisation which includes being able to override the standard "now and next" screen, guide data, now playing etc. out-of-the-box (rather than having to hack it like TiVo) - and also supports direct USB access to the filesystem. Obviously lets you record two channels at once - and supports picture-in-picture. While two channels are recording, you can also watch a third channel on the same multiplex - and potentially a fourth channel using PiP. And it comes with a 250Gb disk (or 160Gb if you go for the other model) as standard.

    Bad bids are that the software is flakier than TiVo - I've had to reboot a couple of times after some strange behaviour. And the user interface is not as intuitive.

    But overall, I'm quite pleased with it. Next step is to connect a Linksys NSLU2 box to the USB port so that I can connect the Toppy to my local network permanently.

    TiVo has been given the task of recording my CCTV camera using a manual season pass - which actually is a pretty good option.

    I miss the simplicity of the TiVo user interface and it is more reliable - except when the guide data screws up ;-)

    I've had no further problems since redoing GS on 28 Dec. Guide data currently until 28 Jan.
