SKIPPA / Skippa for sale
« on: January 29, 2017, 08:16:02 PM »
Anybody want a skippa?
Wasn't having any issues with it when I stopped using it, currently just sitting here doing nothing.

SKIPPA / External Hard Drive
« on: January 28, 2016, 09:04:31 PM »
Has anyone tried using an external drive with their skippa yet?

We haven't had a chance to watch much recently and have filled the drive, I connected one of our seagate external drives to copy some stuff off but despite it spinning up it wasn't detected :(

Tried another small usb and it was detected fine.. Not sure if the 3tb external was too big or what was going on..

Bit annoying, tried to copy some files over the network but being wireless it was pretty slow.

SKIPPA / Incorrect recording
« on: October 02, 2015, 12:29:17 PM »
So I suspect this is more of a epg issue than a skippa issue..

But I just went to play back one of my mythbusters recordings 7pm 1/10/2015 and instead I have half an hour of What went Down..

I would have said mythbusters was usually on at 6.30 but not sure now.. Either way the recording says mythbusters but it certainly isn't  :-\

Edit: I have just noticed I seem to have two identical copies of the incorrect recording :(

Smart Recording on Windows Phone / App feedback
« on: October 01, 2015, 10:50:34 PM »
Hi all,

Want to thank you for the app, always nice when companies bother to support windows phone  8)

Got my skippa now so can actually make use of it :)

Have noticed a couple of issues with the app though.
  • Seems to be on a fairly regular basis that I find the menu button stops responding  so I can't leave the screen I am on. I have to kill the app and reload it and then it is usually ok for the session.
  • I have also noticed a bug updating recordings. When I click on the update button on the series recording, it gives me two options recording and Device (series and skippa respectively) So I can't see all the other options. If I click on the series recording, then I can see all the other fields, but I think it includes some extra fields that aren't relevant to the series recording (like the time field) and the fields all have their default values rather than the stored values for the series recording..
    So yes it appears as if when you try to update a recording something goes wrong and some fields are missing and when then something triggers all the default fields to appear. Hopefully not too hard to reproduce..


SKIPPA / DLNA Streaming
« on: October 01, 2015, 10:32:30 PM »
So thanks to Warkus I got something to stream off the Skippa using Kodi (xbmc) however it is a bit overkill for what I am trying to do..

I was hoping that I would be able to use VLC because I have it installed on almost everything (and because it plays almost everything) but sadly I can't get it to appear in the UPNP part of the library :(

I had a look at the properties in windows of the Skippa and noticed it had a url:

But sadly this loads a blank page, so maybe that is why VLC can't find anything..?

Anybody had any success with VLC or something similar?

SKIPPA / Scheduling Series Recording
« on: October 01, 2015, 07:04:09 PM »
Apologies if this bug has already been raised (it is probably related to one already raised) but thought I should log it anyway..

Whenever we try to schedule a series recording it raises a dialog saying scheduling series recording
Please wait while the series recording '<show title>' is scheduled with the iceTV server. This may take a few minutes.

It certainly does 10 minutes later and it hasn't gone away and I generally restart the skippa at that point because you can't do anything while it is up :(
You can put into standby to make it go away but it comes back the next time you try to do something in the menus (eg restart the skippa)

Pretty sure it generally doesn't actually ever reach the server because it doesn't add it to my series on the website either.

SKIPPA / EPG lockup
« on: October 01, 2015, 06:51:42 PM »
I have had the guide lock up a couple of times now.
TV keeps playing but can't move around the guide or exit.. Can put the skippa in standby but the next time you go in the guide it locks up again.. Restarting it fixes it each time.

Haven't found a common trigger yet but thought it was worth raising anyway.

SKIPPA / Thanks

Thanks IceTV for posting the firmware release notes, these are great!   ;D

Would be interested to add the previous two release too if you get a chance, just for the full history  8)

General Discussions / Latest post in thread

Gday all,

Not familiar with simple machines forums but on other forums I use, there is a button / link you can click which will take you to the latest post you haven't read in a particular thread.. I can't seem to find that button on this forum..

There is a last post button but that takes you to the end and skips over stuff you may not have read..
I find it really useful because posts may have moved on to a new page since you last read and the link takes you to the last post in the previous page you hadn't read allowing you to follow the conversation easier..

If the button does exist can someone point me in the right direction.. And if it doesn't any possibility of getting it added?
