Topfield TF5800

Topfield 5800 TAPS

These are some user application programs (TAPs) for the TF5800 PVR.


This TAP removes unwanted programmes from the Electronic Programme Guide (EPG) making it easier to visually scan down programme listings. Additionally, the TAP scans the EPG for gaps in the schedules and overlapping programmes, reports them, and attempts to fix them where possible.


This TAP fixes an intermittent memory leak, triggered by the "interactive services" on BBC channels. The leak can lead to spontaneous reboots, lost recordings etc.


This TAP dumps all timers in human-readable format to the serial port of the Toppy.
