General Discussions / Missed and added recordings
« on: April 09, 2016, 11:04:01 AM »
Don't know if this a Skippa or programming problem but have had 3 programs fail to record this week (2 last night) and all on different channels and times.  Earlier in the week I had 2 programs that are in My Series that were not set to record and yet both did, never experienced this before.  Generally I find the Skippa quite reliable but lately when programs fail to record, I am not receiving emails from Ice TV informing me of the fact and they never show up in my failed recordings either.  Didn't experience any problems when daylight saving finished and the clock is correct for my region (Adelaide).

IceTV EPG Content / Ultimate Factories
« on: March 06, 2016, 10:02:37 AM »
Over the last month I have been having issues with Ultimate Factories on 7Mate here in Adelaide. I had a series recording set up on Skippa for first runs only but the show would be shown to be recorded and then I could at times go back again and find the show had been deleted.  I then changed it to first runs and repeats, deleting any recordings I didn't want and this seemed to solve the problem.  Last week I had my first 'failed to record' email for some time for an episode last Thursday and then another for the next day.  The strange thing is that this show on Friday did actually record.  I am wondering if the problem is with the listed title as both these shows were actually Mega Factories (which I also have a series recording set up for) and not Ultimate Factories as in the guide.  There is also another show called Super Factories and they all seem to be interrelated. 

SKIPPA / File naming
« on: March 05, 2016, 02:13:33 PM »
What would have caused the naming in the Raw files folder in the  Skippa drive on Windows to suddenly change from actually showing the recording's name to showing REC. and then a number?  This makes it difficult to identify without actually going in and playing it.

SKIPPA / Getting content off external hard drive
« on: February 06, 2016, 03:03:50 PM »
I normally drop and drag shows that I want to keep from the Skippa drive on my PC onto another drive.  However last week for some reason a show I wanted to keep didn't show up on the Skippa drive so thought I would move it to the external drive I have attached to Skippa.  There is nothing in the Skippa menu to transfer or delete files from the external drive, so I unplugged the drive and plugged it into my PC.  The PC (running Windows 10) couldn't read the drive.  Anyone have any idea what format Skippa uses when it formats external drives or how to access these files?  Any help very much appreciated.

IceTV EPG Content / Secrets of China
« on: February 05, 2016, 03:17:32 PM »
A new 3 part series started on ABC 2 last week, Secrets of China but was shown in the EPG as Fit or Fail - Secrets of China, which was the title of the first episode.  I set this series to record but noticed my recording has not been picked up to record tonight because it is now listed under its correct title.  Luckily I noticed this and have corrected my series recording but I could have very well missed it.

SKIPPA / Escape to the Country double recorded
« on: January 17, 2016, 10:33:08 PM »
A strange occurrence on my Skippa tonight, the 8.35 and 9.35 episodes of Escape to the Country both recorded twice.  I have this series set up for first-runs and repeats but have never had any program double record before.  Though I suppose it is better to have 2 recordings rather than none! Anyone else experienced this problem?

SKIPPA / Hypothetical question
« on: November 13, 2015, 04:04:06 PM »
Beyonwiz are replacing all the power units supplied with their T2 PVR and that made me think, with some reported problems with the units supplied with Skippas and the heat problem, what would happen if for instance a fire was started by a problem with one of these units?  If it was discovered to be a design fault, who,if anybody, would be responsible to notify Skippa owners?  IceTV mark 1 are obviously out of the equation and although Altech have closed their Australian operation but are still operating off shore, would they have any liability as the manufacturer and presumably got paid for the units that were supplied?  Or is it simply a case of use the Skippa at your own risk?  Just wondered if there are any legal whizzes out there that might have opinions on this matter?

SKIPPA / Recording Favourites
« on: September 27, 2015, 10:40:20 AM »
This is probably not a Skippa related problem, but as a newbie to IceTV, I know that there are a lot of knowledgeable people on this Forum.  One of the things that attracted me to IceTV was the fact that the EPG picked up shows that were not currently showing in a Favourites list, even if they changed channels (one thing the TiVo couldn't do).  I have an extensive list that I set up as Favourites and once I had my Skippa set up, set most up to record including the shows that are not on air currently.  However, I can't find anywhere that shows that they have been saved to record when they come back on air even in my Favourites folder where it still lists the option for setting to record.  Is there a way to find out if these shows are registered to record?

The other recording problem I have is that one show I have set up as a series recording and is on most week nights, is only showing Tuesday evening as set to record, the rest of the week has yellow triangles with the message 'There was an error scheduling this show to device SKIPPA. This show is part of a series recording.'  I have tried cancelling the series and resetting it, but the same thing happens.
