Quote>2. Â Support for WPA and WPA2 security Unlikely to be enough demand to warrant this.
QuoteThanks for the feedback Peter.WEP offers very weak security.
QuoteI have to say that whilst I am pleased with the functionality that the Icebox EPG provides within the topfield, I was a little dissapointed at the level of smarts it contains for recordng shows in a semi-automatic fashion such as by gendre, or by program name.I was thinking about it and thought that since the topfield is connected to the PC at all times, and the PC has the Icebox application for downloading the EPG data, it would be really nice (as Mantorok has already suggested) to enhance the PC app to allow browsing of the EPG on screen, with search by gendre/program name, and then allow you to manually or automatically upload recording schedules to the topfield from the PC for programs of that name/type. Â Possible enhancements to this are prioritisation of recordings according to remaining disk space; automatic deletion of older recordings on the topfield (i.e. a smart space management tool for the topfield HD); and on screen notifications of upcoming programs of interest.

QuoteWithout WPA support I won't be using ICE...
QuoteSeeing this is a wishlist -- The ability to simply set record a show and not have to worry about Â the timer ie the show carries some sort of ID tag and it doesn't matter if the preceeding show goes over the published finished time. The PVR & EPG will compensate.
QuoteI currently use Up2Date,EPGUploader and JagEPG, which does just this. I just set it to record "Cheers", and no matter what time of day or what channel decides they want to run repeats of Cheers, I'll have it waiting for me.Now that I've had it, this is one feature that I absolutely, positively, 100% cannot live without. So unless IceTV can do it, or if Ice generates TGDs that EPGUploader can use, I will have to live with the laptop in the cabinet, and every now and again downloading a new version of the ninemsn EPG grabber...
QuoteTED will get the guide from ICE automatically, transfer the TGD's to the Toppy, and EPGuploader carries on from there. Jag's will still work.
