Title: IceTV Now Allows Up To 5 Devices
Post by: Paul55 on May 17, 2014, 09:47:11 AM
The latest subscription promotion offer states that you can have up to 5 devices on a single account. Thought it may have been a misprint because, a couple of months ago, I needed to deactivate one of my PVRs in order to connect my newest Beyonwiz.
However, I now see the option to add another device in My Account and the 'you have maximum number of devices' message is gone. Great move IceTV to recognise that many of us have multiple PVRs nowadays.
Out of interest, how long have 5 devices been permitted and why weren't subscribers notified of this enhancement?

I thnk it was changed some years ago. I"m sure that when I got may second 7100+ I hadno problem adding it - already had 2 x 2400, a 7100+ and a 7100. That was back in Feb 2013.

However, the Toppy firmware limits you to a max of FOUR (4) TMS Toppys; I'm sure that I ahd 4 TMS Toppys plus a 7100 active on IceTv for a time.

They should add a little star next to it that states as long as they're all in the same region :( I don't understand why in the My recorders section you can have a drop down box to select the device type but not one to select the region settings seems it would be simple.

My understanding (and I could very well be wrong) is that the devices should be in same household. I've assumed the devices would be on the same internet connection. Otherwise you could let a friends and relatives use your account instead of having their own.

I guess it'd be this:
