Skippa manual
« on: July 21, 2015, 10:13:39 AM »
G'day Leon & Dave,
Monday the 20th has come and gone and still a blank pdf instead of the Skippa manual.
Do you have an ETA?

Another slip, doesn't matter to me though as I imagine my Skippa is a few weeks away yet at best.

Trying to be very patient here...

Please provide an update on:

i)  Availability of manual

ii) Expected first shipping date (and what will be the phasing of the shipping - i.e. batches of X units over Y weeks)

Thanks

I am told that later today IceTV will be sending an email to those who have ordered a SKIPPA with an update.

Yeah how about they tell us they have no Skippa's just before knock off on Friday afternoon?  Yeah that sounds like a plan, I don't want to be here when the phone starts ringing.

Well done Skippers, another fantastic effort.

I suppose that is one possibility. Being an optimist, I am hopeful of a somewhat better outcome that the one you are suggesting.

At the moment I an pondering on the significance, if any, of the delay in the release of the Manual. Releasing the manual should not be impacted on by a delay in shipment due to the units not having reached Australia. To me it is suggestive of a last minute change to the some aspect of the SKIPPAs functioning. It may be that they do not want to ship the units until an updated firmware is ready.

The conspiracy theorist in me thinks that the firmware needed updating, because the original had the skipping function built in, and now that they have decided to charge for that function. it has to be changed so it doesn't skip "out of the box", without a subscription.
Similarly, the original manual would also mention nothing about the skipping function being an optional extra, so that needs to be re-written as well.
Cheers,
Judy

As expected, it closely follows the Altech 9600T manual  :).

Just one question after a brief read through. I can't find the 2 small blue left/right arrow keys, which are mentioned on page 32 under Manual Skip, on the Remote itself. I can only see the Autoskip and Unskip buttons.

.....Just after another look at the Remote - would they be the Left/Right arrows around the OK button?

If so, could we have an option somewhere down the track to use the Up/Down buttons for additional Skip functions?

Posted on 16 June?

No mention of OperaTV!

Updtae: I suppose it is possible that the page was created on 16 June and the content added later.
