EyeTV / Sick of unreliability. Just Ditch the "fetch"
« on: May 22, 2011, 11:05:21 PM »
I don't know whether it's just me  ::)

But I'm fed up with the Icetv/eyetv/elgato/mac thing not being 100% reliable. Everytime there is a software upgrade, something seems to go astray.

Now here is an idea. Why doesn't ICE just ditch this "fetch" and "sync with our guide thing" we have to do and get right all the time, and simply record EVERY show on a giant server or something.

Actually surely this server wouldn't have to be too large, or a huge expense for the company.

You would just have to get some multi tuner cards and 3 or 4 mac pros or something...

Then when we wanted to view a show, we could simply "log on to the server", like we do with catchup TV such as abc iView, and watch what we want straight off the Icetv server....

That would be 100% reliable. And save a lot of the "missed recording" hassles...  :)

I just don't get why ICETV hasn't cottoned onto this....

EyeTV / Every Recording is now called "Ice TV program"

Seriously. Just looking through all the mac threads, just when is IceTV for the eyetv, EVER going to bee 100% fool proof..

This is my current problem since I changed my password (because of the darn playstation fiasco) and upgraded to 3.5.2

There is ALWAYS something with this service after an upgrade or change..

I mean IS Icetv EVER going to be 100% compatible with this platform  ::)

Is it EVER going to work properly?

I mean this has been a problem since 2007..see other thread on this..

Can someone help me out here ?

Thanks  :)

Beyonwiz / Failure to record Insiders, but Inside Business OK !
« on: March 06, 2011, 05:32:57 PM »
Hi I have a problem. The Wiz fails to record Insiders, but has no problems with the following show (Inside business) on the same channel.
Both shows are recording OK on my eyetv. Any suggestions what might be going on? It's got me stumped...Thanks!

I've been told by a computer guy that in order to use ICE TV properly a TV card with "on/off" switching is necessary.
I assume this allows the HTPC to be switched on in order to start recording.
He says such cards need MPEG2/4 encoding for this function.

Is this correct?
Is what he is saying a sort of an "awake from standby"?
The Hauppauge HVR 2200 MCE has MPEG is this card OK with ICE TV EPG?
If not are there any other suggestions?

I dont really want to leave a PC on all the time.

General Discussions / IceTV and Elgato...what the.....

Hello. Ice Tv is a great concept.

I went out and launched into all this via the elgato solution. Wow. what a disappointing launch!

Basically Ice/elgato just doesn't work as advertised! It's darn well not good enough.

So please Ice tell me your EPG works better with the other PVR gear....

General Discussions / Do I need a "Freeview" compliant beyonwiz?
« on: April 25, 2009, 08:55:35 PM »

Newbie here. I'm about to launch into the HD DVR world. I'm going to get 3 Beyonwiz's and network them. Run them all with iceTV.

I know there will shortly be released two types of beyonwiz PVR's. The current non "Freeview" and a new "Freeview" compliant one. The IceTV website says Ice will work with the new "Freeview" transmission. SO do I need to get a "Freeview" WIZ?? Or is it better to get an non freeview one that will allow add skipping etc....

I guess what I'm asking is that after the networks switch over to their new mpeg4 DTV signal, does it matter which beyonwiz I get if I'm using ICE as the EPG...

Get my drift...if it's not confusing enough!!!  ???
