utoppya -- Topfield TF5000PVR DVB recorder file manipulation program
utoppya [-f device] command ...
utoppya is the userland interface to the Topfield TF5000PVR range of DVB
recorders (nicknamed `Toppy') which uses the utoppy(4) device driver.
The options are as follows:
-f Communicate with device instead of the default /dev/utoppy0.
Using the services of the utoppy(4) driver, utoppya can perform the fol-
lowing operations, specified by the command operand:
df Display disk size and free space
List the files in the specified directory. Default is the
Toppy's root directory.
Make the specified directory. You must supply the full pathname
Delete the file or directory specified by pathname.
rename <source> <target>
Rename the file or directory specified by the source operand to
the destination file or directory specified by the target oper-
get [-prt] <toppyfile> [localfile]
Copy toppyfile from the Toppy to localfile on the local file sys-
tem. If localfile is omitted, the file will be copied into the
current directory and will be named using the last component of
the toppyfile operand. If localfile is `-', then toppyfile will
be copied to the standard output.
The following options are available for the get command:
-p Display a progress bar.
-r This option is useful if you wish to resume a previously
interrupted get command. Instead of restarting from the
beginning of the file, the transfer will resume where it
-t Enable `Turbo' mode. This instructs the Toppy to drop
everything and concentrate on transferring the file as
quickly as possible. You will be able to watch live TV,
but all other functions, including changing channel via
the remote control, will be inoperative.
put [-prt] <localfile> <toppyfile>
Copy localfile on the local filesystem to toppyfile on the Toppy.
If toppyfile specifies a directory on the Toppy, the last compo-
nent of the localfile operand will be appended to the toppyfile
The options described for the get command (above) also apply to
the put command.
/dev/utoppy0 The default Topfield TF5000PVR instance.
The utoppya command first appeared in NetBSD 4.0 and was inspired by
`ftpd-topfield' written by Steve Bennett <msteveb at ozemail.com.au> and
`puppy' written by Peter Urbanec <toppy at urbanec.net>.
