Hi, Another Reciva refugee also. If everyone that was taking care of the other forum came here we'll be fine, they were the ones that held up Reciva anyway. :D

Glad I've found this. Couldn't believe that Reciva closed their forum without any advanced notice. What the *!*$ are they playing at. Even though I didn't contribute much I  read the postings every evening and found them very informative and entertaining (the entertaining part usually wasn't even discussing Reciva radios most of the time). Hopefully all of the familiar regulars will find this new forum site and we will be back (almost) as we were.
IR100's....OXX Digital...IRMA1...BT internet radio....Freecom Musicpal(v.tuner)...tranciva (frontier silicon)... Acoustic Solutions Net008..Roberts stream 83i... No reason at all why I need so many...and now a Pure One Flow so I again can listen to BBC Listen Again.Also have Zettaly Avy

I'm another one who no longer posted regularly on the reciva forum but still came by to read, though not every evening. I know the that many people would not have got their radios working without the unofficial help the forum offered, so it suggests Reciva don't expect to sell many more radios.
It was a shock on the 29th to see the very bald message Reciva posted. I do note that the forum.reciva.com still works, but they have taken the link off the home page.

Your existing presets will continue to work.  But you can't change them unless you do this:  http://recivarefuge.net/forum/index.php?topic=15.0

You have to sharpfin the radio and install the enhancement pack - this allows you to view and edit presets.

*surfaces* Hi folks.

Re the Sharpfin process, does it rely on any of Reciva's servers to work?

If Reciva goes under and shuts down all servers, would it then be too late to try Sharpfin, i.e must it be done while Reciva is still a going concern?

I think you only would need Reciva access if you wanted to download a firmware.  The enhancement pack features don't depend on Reciva.

Well, that could be checked by trying to load the Sharpfin patch / enhanceemnt pack with internet disconnected.

If I have time, I'll try it tomorrow.
Radios in use: Roberts Stream 93i, Sangean WFR-29C, Technisat 450 & 520, Revo Pixis RX, Hama DIT2010, IR110 & DIR3100.

Shocked beyond belief, but I'm glad there's this place.  I'm terrified of Reciva going under though.   :-\
