    Hi, a friend of mine has a Top up TV digibox which she never took out a subscription for, so just used it for the free view channels. Suddenly, it looks as if the epg is running out – only showing programmes for next day or so. Am assuming this relates to Top up TV closing down. Will she be able to carry on using the box as a decoder and recorder, and if so, how will she get access to a new epg, I.e. What’s the process for reconfiguring the menu, etc? Any help greatly appreciated! Thanks for reading.
