I lodged a claim with PayPal for non receipt of my Skippa the day after IceTV went into VA.
Like others,  I received an email from PayPal this morning saying they were refunding $417 to my account. 😀
I don't often get a win but sure did this time.
Bought a Beyonwiz T2 for $349 with 1tb HDD and a usb tuner (making 3 tuners).
Happy camper!

I also would pay to renew to a new owner.
Perhaps it would help if the site admin were to commence a POLL, the,  hopefully,  positive result could be passed on to the money grubbers - oops,  Administrators.

G'day Judy,
I think you'll find that Dan9477 is referring to the 4 emails we've received from the Administrators in the past 6 days,  not Dave's responses to posts  on the forum. If you've already got your Skippa,  you won't have received the Administrators emails.

Those articles in the Age and Sydney Morning Herald (identical articles by the same reporter.) put a different slant on 1/ the reasons for IceTV going into VA and 2/ the chances of the Administrator shipping the additional 1000 Skippy's to pre order customers.
UEC,  the manufacturer of Skippa,  had withheld delivery of the Skippy's to IceTV waiting for payment in full of all manufacturing orders.
The 1000 units were not ever in IceTV 's warehouse and probably now never will be.
If you were holding hope of your Skippa being delivered that is now looking less than slim.
UEC has them - but what can they do with them?
I feel there's a good chance that IceTV guide will continue,  but Skippa is dead!

Read the letter from TPH Insolvency.
Not only the $15k in the bank account but TPH get $45k now and then an hourly rate starting with the Administrators at about $580 per hour.
That $45K could have manufactured another 300 Skippa's!

Reading through the PayPal Buyer Protection policy I came across this:

S16.1 Credit Card Chargeback rights, if applicable, may be broader than the PayPal Buyer Protection Policy. Chargeback rights are not limited to specific amounts per transaction and may cover intangible items.

S16.2 You may pursue a claim or dispute with PayPal or contact your Credit Card provider to pursue your Chargeback rights. You may not pursue both at the same time or seek a double recovery. If you have an open claim or dispute with us and subsequently file a Chargeback with your Credit Card provider, we will close your dispute or claim.

S16.3 Before contacting your Credit Card provider or filing a dispute with us, you should contact the seller to resolve your issue in accordance with the seller’s return policy.

May be of interest if you paid via PayPal/credit card

Check out the new thread on IceTV in Voluntary Administration for info on PayPal buyer protection and possible delivery of Skippa's.

This is PayPal's Buyer Protection, so I believe we have cover, despite IceTV's Insolvency!
I've also written to Mark Everingham from TPH asking if they intend to honour the  " this stage intend to continue trading in the normal course for a short period of time whilst an urgent sale of business campaign is conducted".
Will advise of a reply.
Meanwhile, if you paid for your unreceived Skippa via PayPal I'd suggest lodging a dispute claim with PayPal.
The news re IceTV/Skippa is not necessarily all doom and gloom.
If TPH do as they say, the IceTV guide will continue and the Firmware update will happen.
On On!

Hey Leon or Dave,
On page 39 of the manual it states "SKIPPA requires an Internet connection at all times".
I'm a grey nomad travelling around OZ and use a wireless  broadband modem as a WiFi Hotspot, my only access to the internet.

Wireless Data is expensive.

Why do we need to be connected at all times and what daily draw on my data plan will Skippa use?

What will happen if I ,say, connect 2 or 3 times a day to allow IceTv to update?
Will Skippa still record my chosen programs or series?

They could be waiting for Altech to supply that bit of code - the Altech 9600T manual has it likewise listed as Not Available.
The addendum to the 9600 manual has them enabled with screenshots. 
Some good new features in the manual update.

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?
