If you've been using IceTV on a Beyonwiz T series, you may want to switch over to AutoTimers using the broadcast EPG. I've written a quick guide ( http://www.beyonwiz.com.au/forum/viewtopic.php?f=42&t=9641 ) to setting them up over on the Beyonwiz forum. Who knows, it may even become a proper FAQ one day :)

You'll have to copy/paste the link in your browser: the IceTV forum software makes a complete hash of it if you just click on it.

I've updated the link in the OP. It now points to what will become an FAQ on the Beyonwiz forum. It still eeds a bit more work, but it's already a good bit more comprehensive than the original.

Now that ICETV is resurrected, do I have to delete all my T3 autotimers which I set up after deleting my ICETV autotimers before enabling ICETV??

Good question.  I am about to buy a T4 and the plan is to play with autotimers, before decommissioning my Toppy, just to see how difficult/easy it is.  If I then decide to use IceTV anyway, I would prefer to keep the settings in autotimers, just in case  :-X

Don't delete them, just disable them. If IceTV doesn't survive beyond the effective life of the autotimers they can be re-enabled. For example you might have set up autotimers for your favourite shows.

Disabling AutoTimers doesn't disable or delete the timers they have already generated, so unless you do that yourself, you'll get a week's worth of double recordings.
