Topfield / Why won't the Topfield 2460 allow FFW/RWD of edited files?
« on: February 08, 2011, 08:41:21 PM »
Hi All,

Another question from a newbie with a brand new PVR...

I've just tried using the 'editing' functionality to delete an ad-break from a movie I'd like to keep.  Then I tried to FFW and RWD... at which point I got a message saying something like 'edited files cannot be FFW'.  The edit controls are pretty clunky (though I think the remote itself is a thing of beauty) so I'm wondering if I've missed something...?

Has the ad break really been 'deleted' or has it simply been flagged for skipping?

I can see how deleting a chunk of data from the middle of a file would screw up the decompression, so presumably you'd end up staring at blocky images for a second or three.

Anyone out there delved into this...?

Topfield / How often should Topfield 2460 interact with the IceTV website?

Hi Everyone,

I've just wasted a day getting my shiny new 2460 setup and online via my airport base station.  This is my first PVR and I'm trying to get my head around how the whole system is supposed to work, so perhaps someone out there can enlighten me...?

I know from tech support that during the first 30 mins after switch on the 2460 will download the EPG and recording data from IceTV.  Then, during the next 30 mins it uploads confirmation (or not) data back to the IceTV site.  Hence, after about an hour, the PVR and the website should be in synch -- among other things, all the hollow 'queued recoring' icons in the My Week listing change into filled 'recording' ones... assuming the wireless network link hasn't gone down in the meantime.

The question is, what *should* happen next?  Should the 2460 keep talking to the IceTV webserver hour by hour, or do I have to force a synch by hitting the 'Resend All Recordings' button in the My Account section?

Also, does anyone out there have any tips for keeping the wireless link stable?  I have a Macbook and an Xbox that both use the basestation without any problems, but the 2460 has seemed reluctant to connect at least a couple of times after powering up.
