    I have to admit that like many others, its just plain silly that the old TAG forum is still not available. Years of tips, opinions and knowledge "lost".

    Can we start a campaign of some sort? Do we have an email address of an IAG person we can send our request to? I see no harm on all of the posting being available here - or zipped up on to some server.

    The silly thing is - it benefits TAG / IAG owners in the long run!

    :lease:

    I fully agree :clap: (of course I do) and I would see at least two ways of achieving it, assuming IAG gives the necessary permission:

    a) as an add on to this forum, but that will need some work from the AV Forum provider and might or might not fit the overall concept for this great forum.

    b) mirroring the old forum at a different URL: btw. the former webmaster of the TMA site, Douglas Paul [I am missing working with you! :hiya: ], already offered to assist us if that would be the way forward.

    I suggest to email the IAG/TMA Helpdesk in order for them to pass on the messages/requests 9until such time somebody comes up with a better alternative].

    It would be nice but I can hardly believe IAG would do that. There were too many negative aspects for business inside too. As long as it all goes fine it is OK but as soon as something is going wrong too many people try to spoil it even more. That's the world as it is!
    I still hope they will put at least all those usefull files onto new homepage. I know I can get it from you if I need it but if there are changes in the future there will be new content too.

    But Udo's idea to mirror OLD forum somewhere is great. It is huge shame all those usefull informations are gone. I hope you have full backup of it.
    By the way, Udo, are you sure it is legally OK. Don't they have the rights to old forum content too?

    If you are sure it can be done I maybe could provide webspace. I was always able to find all the answers there (apart from those you neer wanted to answer :) ). There was amazing amount of usefull information inside. The one who read it thru must know almost everything about TMA units. It was more than reference database for me, that's why I hate seing it gone!

    Let's see what comes out

    Edit:
    Add on:I just read " assuming IAG gives necessary permission"
    In that case they could put it in somewhere by themselves anyway (even as a read only copy without possibility of new posts). Don't think that will happen either.

    I've already added my penny's worth to this a few weeks back,and there are a number of current IAG staff looking in here,who may be able to take this suggestion forwards...maybe?...it would obviously be appreciated.

    Ah Support!! Nice one!!

    I still can't believe any organisation seriously serving a market as dynamic as home cinema could so have wasted the USP and marketing mechanism the fora represented. What were they thinking?

    OK, it did suffer from an attack of the twits a while ago but that was quickly cured. The overall value to company and customers was immense.

    As long as the forum has no formal home at IAG,then hopefully everyone will be able to get what they need here,and whilst not a substitute for the large archive of forum material that hopefuly still exists,at least help and advice are readily available here,and from the IAG helpdesk.

    The more this area is used,the greater the amount of information that becomes available....thanks to all.

    How about doing an ultimate FAQ for the TMA products instead? Over the last few years it appears that the same old questions come up and if a decent FAQ or knowledge base was made for the TMA stuff then the old forum wouldn't be required. What's wrong with this one to have general day to day chit-chat on and a managed FAQ that is managed to get a decent internet signal/noise ratio! :eek:)

    Although the old forum was good you had to plough through it to get to the hard facts, as there was plenty of dodgy information lurking in it.

    Yepp, add me too! :thumbsup:

    The wealth of information on the old Tag forum was just immense. From really indepth analysis too quick fixes!

    Bring it back as a look-up source!

    All the best
