Quote from: tonymy01 on May 11, 2009, 10:01:39 AMDoes the Beyonwiz DP-P1 have the features you need? It is a more substantial number of features than the Toppy, but more reliable it seems, especially for its core function, as a PVR.

Quote from: austini on May 11, 2009, 10:03:26 AMHi again,I finally got through on the phone this morning. Apparantly they were having problems with their phones.Support assistance was great I must say.So back out to Harvey normal to pick up a third unit and will keep my fingers crossed.Gordon
QuoteI'm glad you got through, but as much as it pains me to say it (I own a 5000 Toppy and LOVE it) I think you should look at replacing it with a different brand. I am yet to meat anyone that is happy with the newer Toppies. Someone I know, had their unit sent to Sydney, got it back, they updated the firmware while they had it, but it died again in a week. BTW, is it true that these units reformat the hard drive during a firmware update? Another friend complained about that to me. Sounds unbelievable to me! ::) All my friends that I talked into buying a Toppy hate me now. :'(

Quote from: Vortical on May 13, 2009, 01:07:22 AM...Firmware changelog item 4 states the following4. Changed : Application data in flash memory is moved out for stability. - Warning : This feature requires user to format the HDD....
Quote from: prl on May 13, 2009, 11:16:28 AMThat sounds like a completely bizarre reason to format the HDD.

Quote from: mac37 on May 13, 2009, 05:02:33 PMI remember reading back on the sadly missed iTopfield forum, from the gurus that are in the know, that, to accommodate the application and firmware update on the HDD, a new partition had to be created. That was the reason given for the necessity to reformat.Mac
