Just got my shiny new 8800HD from fixmydata and my wife has already stolen the remote and the cat has sat on it so I know it's part of the family now.

1.  Does anyone have a PDF version of the manual as reading the printed one is incredibly hard for my old eyes?

2.  Since the EPG seems to work similarly to my TV in that I have to go through every channel to populate it, how does this work with recording ahead (days in the future) if I haven't turned it on the next day to populate the epg? Will it somehow figure it out?

3.  Does anyone know of any android application that functions similarly to smartepg? I really miss that functionality now. It could do everything.

There are some EPG issues that the 8800 probably has, similar to those for the 5300, and 2200 (see discussion here). 

You can keep the EPG populated by using a P timer once a day on one service for each network.

Hi Ian, thanks for the reply. Only got the box yesterday so I have no idea how to do a P-Timer much less where to find it.

Currently playing with Kodi in the wife's new toy and managed to crash TF-Launcher (Don't tell her for God's sake!!) heheheheh.

Next to tackle the ftp server and then figure out where/how to find p-timers. Unless someone knows how to do them with this model?

The manual also mentions an ftp server built in and explicitly mentions where to find it but it doesn't exist.

That's something else to work out. (Now, if only I can get rid of this cold and think!!!)

Not sure about the ftp server, it is probably somewhere in the Android options. Cannot recall if you need to load a separate App - you had to do so on the 6211.

That's the thing, the manual says it is already there (has a page entry, pictures even) and where to find it but it isn't!

And I don't know how to load apps onto the android toppy and if it's safe. Kodi crashes (as an example) tf_launcher whenever I go to the guide so I am nervous about doing anything myself without some expert advice.
