An application for uploading firmware to Topfield PVRs

ToFi is an native Cocoa Mac OS X application that allows Mac users to easily upload new versions of firmware to their Topfield PVR.


  • Upload of firmware.

The following features are still to be implemented:

  • Progress bar

Known bugs/limitations:

  • Not really a bug, but please make sure you have the right firmware for your model! There are a lot of similarly named machines, and a TF5000PVR is different than a TF5000PVRt.
  • Please note that this is unofficial software, and no resposibility is taken for any problems caused by the use of this software. Use at your own risk.
  • USB 1.1 connections often fail to complete the transfer. USB 2 is fine however.
ToFi should work on Mac OS X 10.2 and above
