Qosmio F20-136: scanned TV guide channel - save the file so you can recharge?

I have a Qosmio F20 - 136 running XP Media Center. My question is does anyone know the name of the file that has the channels scanned so that if I do a re scan and don't get all channels from the list, because of my reception antenna I can re - load the file on the system with a complete list?

What happens, if I make a new analysis of the channels of television at home I don't get that nearly 20 tv channels, but if I take the laptop to work, where I guess it's a better reception from the transmitter, I travel 35 channels found. I would like to save the file when its 35 channels scanned and have the opportunity to replace it in the directory, if I do a re scan at home.

Thank you.

Hello Mike

Your validation list is very impressive and you should be an expert Qosmio. ;)
I have F20 too and I also noticed that I can't watch all the channels available on cable TELEVISION here at home.

Have you already found something interesting about it?

  • Why Lightroom will not save the file when you use the image Capture?

    When you work with video in Lightroom 5, whenever I press "Image Capture", I get an error message that says: "cannot save the file." I tried this on several video files, and I get the same message. Video files are. MOV files. I can't understand why this is happening!

    I had this same error message. I solved it when I moved the video file on the hard disk internal to the computer, and then it worked perfectly. He always gave the error message when I used an external video file from my hard drive. There for a long time until I tried this. No one answered this problem in forums that I could find.

    I hope this helps.

  • Why DAQmx read 200714 error when you save the file?

    In particular vi that I created, I have 3 analog inputs coming in and are graphically represented.  If I choose to save the information to a file, a dialog box appears and I can choose what to save it under.  If I take too long to save the file (aka about 8-10 seconds if the sample read rate is 500/s) then I get this error once the file has been saved:

    Error-200714 occurred at .vi DAQmx Read (analog 1-d NChan DBL 1Samp)
    Possible reasons:
    Acquisition stopped because the driver could not transfer the data from the device to the computer's memory rather quickly. This was due to limitations of the computer system.
    Reduce your sample clock rate, the number of channels in the task, or the number of programs on your computer that is running simultaneously.

    Why the DAQmx bed vi I have this problem when the vi has been idle for 10 seconds then I choose where to save the file?  How can I fix this error?

    Hi child of pre-school age,

    I think your error might be caused by the read buffer overflow. my suggestions for you would be to either the following four ideas:

    1. stop the acquisition before writing the file. This should mean that the DAQmx Read function will no longer be reading and therefore does not generate an error.

    2. If you still want to read the data but also write data as well, I think you'd be best suited for use live TDMS. TDMS allows the user to stream to a reading of filewhilst.

    3. the configuration backup dialog box file before starting the acquisition. Download the user to enter all data in the file before you start to acquire.

    4. change the buffer to unlimited so that you have enough time to navigate the record window.

    If you send your VI I can advise others

    Hi Mike227,

    I couldn't find a way to immediately make the bat. I guess you need to mess with ActiveX to do. I found an msdn page that could help with this.

    Have you considered simply concatenating the name of the file and the time stamp with a path of the file and save the file when you create it, without inviting the user?

    Hi Lince,

    -You talk to the Mail app?

    If you are referring to the Mail application, then by saving an attachment of an e-mail can be done in a folder on the computer. So, if you want to create a new folder to save the file attachment, you must create it before you download the attachment of the e-mail.

  • Unable to save illustrator file because you do not have permission

    At work our files are saved to a single server. I can work on it fine and save them and have never any problems, however my colleague will open the files and modify them and when she tried to save gives an error message saying that she must save the file with a different name because it doesn't have permission to save the file. How can we prevent this if us does not clutter up our system with the duty to name the same file several different names depending on who works there.

  • Qosmio F20-136: how to install the software update for DVB TV device?

    Hi, I used the update all the drivers for my qosmio f20 136 11/07/06 and received various pilot updated on the list.
    The file called TV-TUNER-QF20-XPMCE-103250526 at startup allows the pilot to TV TUNER directory listing and seems to be once I was the driver under System section and selected update driver and select this directory.

    My question is the another file called DVBTAHYB-QF20-XPMCE-1051340 when I click on the file that I just get a list of files, when I try the My TV driver update and choose this directory it won't find anything, does anyone know how to install that to update the file. The download list says they are two updates of tv pilot.

    Maybe Toshiba could include a text file explaining in detail how to install these files? Can anyone help please. And nobody knows which file to copy to save a permanent channel registration, so I could re install the file in the directory so lost the complete channel list?

    Thanks in advance.


    Maybe I understood something wrong, but according to the prudence shown on the Toshiba download page, the TV-TUNER-QF20-XPMCE-103250526 driver is designed for the range of models between F20-101 and F20 - 135.
    Are you sure that this disc is designed for your computer model laptop too?

    Have you tried to install the update of dvbtahyb-qf20-xpmce-1051340 when the original pilot of the TV (factory settings) is preinstalled?

  • Qosmio F20-136: is your fan permanently on?

    I noticed that on my Qosmio F20-136 cooling fan never shuts. There when I start the machine and don't vary in speed, or stop, except when the machine is off.

    Is this normal for this model? Everybody suffers the same constant hairdryer noise?

    I try to install the fan control software and re - install the latest orders Tosh Power saver, but nothing does make a difference.

    I got Qosmio F20 for two weeks at home and I noticed the same thing. I don't think it's something unusual. I noticed that cooling fan works often or permanent but very slow speed.

    Most of the time when you work on PC, I listen to the music and for me it was not disturbing at all.

  • Qosmio F20-136: someone tried Tv Software such as GB - PVR?

    I have a Qosmio F20-136 with media Center, but due to the fact that I lose permanently the TV signal on digital channels, I was going to try free software GB - PVR tuner that I tired trying to use Media Digital Center. I have a perfect antenna signal that crosses a digibox on my main TV together but not satisfied with the Qosmio tuner.

    Someone else used the alternative free GB - PVR software successfully?


    Hello Mike

    Since a few days, I also F20 and I have no problem with the TV signal. I tested it with cable and satellite receiver. It works fine, but it will be interesting to know if there is something new that can be put to the test.

    What you think of GB-PVRI put t know if it supports the TV on Qosmio F20 tuner.

  • Qosmio F20-136: I have no restore CD?

    The Qosmio F20-136 laptop comes with a Windows CD I can't find one, don't know if its just on the recovery CD, but I think remember me there used to be a Microsoft Map with etc product key, I do not see to be able to find a.
    Thank you

    Hi Mike

    AFAIK the recovery CD provided with the device. On this CD, you will find a ghost image that includes a Windows operating system, drivers, and other applications as a Note.
    The product key for a Note that you will find on the cover of the recovery CD. In addition, you don't need to activate the Windows operating system because the imgages Toshiba are already activated.

    But maybe you have to create this image of yourself. In this case using Toshiba, you will find a function to burn clean recovery Image

  • HDD upgrade on Qosmio F20-136

    I have a Qosmio F20-136 with about 60 GB hard drive, I see that new models now have more than 200 to 320 GB of HDD.

    Does anyone know what updates are available for the hard drive for my machine, because I want to increase the size.
    Thank you

    You will have no problem with 120 GB.
    The problem is that you won't find a Toshiba official information on the size of HARD drive compatibility.
    You must test several sizes. In any case, for now I didn t find any laptop computers with a single internal 320 GB HDD and as mentioned by James s not sure what the BIOS does not support this large size of HARD drive.
    So if you want to use a HDD larger than 120HDD you should test it before you buy
