    Some Toppy users have been downloading Radio Times EPG info from their website to their Toppy for many years. It would be cool if they were to try and use that wealth of experience for this "new" venture.

    Do you know how to do that?

    Are you sure it's the Radio Times EPG and not the Freeview one?
    (There is a Toppy application called "eit2mei" which harvests the Freeview EPG information and saves it in the MEI format.)

    Yes and there is also an app/TAP which makes use of the RT EPG info which extends the window from one to two weeks and has fuller descriptions of programmes than the standard Freeview EPG provides. Look over on the Toppy user forums for further details.

    That link is a bit out of date. I think most Topfield users requiring RT data use 'rt2mei' on various platforms. I use an old Linksys NSLU2 to do all the work automatically everyday. rt2mei can also be used on a PC and the data uploaded to the Topfield manually.

    Topfield has always had a loyal support amongst hard-core hobbyists, it isn't much use as a benchmark for mass-market users, though.

    That may be so but their experience is surely useful in learning how to make this work for a more naive audience.

    Let's agree to disagree on this one, hey gomez?
