Plex / Common setup pitfalls using IceTV with Plex
« on: July 01, 2019, 05:33:55 PM »
One of things we are seeing come up regularly is that in regional areas there are commonly a couple of channels that have the same LCN, while normally this is not a problem Plex will ignore any channels with a duplicate LCN.

The good news is there an easy fix for this, on the Guide Settings tab in the My Account menu on the IceTV website you can modify the list of channels that is downloaded by Plex, or limit which LCN's are sent for each channel, if you change these settings and click on Save then just refresh the guide within Plex you should see the updated channel list immediately.

Announcements / IceTV API documentation
« on: March 15, 2016, 05:06:33 PM »
Hi Everyone,

We are please to announce that we have just released the documentation for the IceTV EPG and Smart Recording API.

With this documentation it is possible for PVR projects to be able to integrate into IceTV's EPG and Smart Recording service.

To be able to utilize the service an application developer will need to be apply for a developer key, this can be done by emailing (this is detailed in the documentation).

The documentation can be found at

With the launch of new channels (TEN HD, 7flix, along with 9Life and 9HD in NBN areas) we need to get the DVB Triplets for these channels so the guide information can be mapped correctly.

We need the following information for each channel in each region:

Channel Name

To get these id numbers for each of these channels on the Beyonwiz T2/T3/T4 units:

- First you will need to make sure that you are in Intermediate or Expert mode.
  - In T4, T2 and recent T3 software versions go to 'Menu > System > GUI Settings' and change the 'Setup Mode' to Expert.
  - In older T3 software versions go to 'Menu > System > OSD Settings' and change the 'GUI Mode' to Expert.

Now you are ready to write down the TSID, ONID and SID numbers.

1. Change channel to one of those channels that has no IceTV guide data.
2. Exit any menus, EPGs and guides etc. i.e. Go to live TV.
3. Go to 'Menu > Information > Service'.
4. Once you are in the 'Information > Service' menu, press the Green button.
5. Now note the TSID, ONID and SID details shown for this channel.

Repeat steps 1 to 5 for all other affected channels, and reply to this thread with the details.

To get these id numbers for each of these channels on the SKIPPA units:

1. Press Menu.
2. Select Settings and press OK.
3. Select Channels and press OK.
4. Select one of the affected channels and press the Yellow button.
5. Write down the Frequency MHz.
6. Write down the Triple including the colons.
7. Repeat steps 4 to 6 for the other affected channels.

Reply to this thread with the channel name, number, frequency and triple numbers (on 1 line per channel).

For example:

9 - Nine Sydney - 191.67 MHz - 4114:1056:1057
99 - GO! - 191.67 MHz - 4114:1056:1059

We will update this thread as these channels go live for IceTV in each of these regions.

Announcements / IceTV Scheduled Maintenance tonight (22/10/2015)
« on: October 22, 2015, 05:54:28 PM »
Tonight IceTV will be performing scheduled maintenance on it's servers between Midnight tonight (22/10/2015) and 6am tomorrow (23/10/2015). We will be moving them to new hardware which will also involve changes to our DNS setup.

What does this mean to me?

During the maintenance window the IceTV service will be unavailable. Also as this includes a DNS change depending on your Internet Service Provider it might take between 24 to 48 hours to come back.

Is there anything I should do to prepare for this?

Any last minute scheduling of shows should be performed this evening before midnight for the next 24 to 48 hours if you have not already.
