The 'unofficial' XMLTV grabber has now been updated and works again.

Topfield / Good news for ICEtv?
« on: November 08, 2005, 08:59:18 PM »
It seems that ninemsn have now encrypted their TV guide web pages making the "unofficial" TV guide grabbers break.
I'd imagine that should cause a few extra ICEtv subsciptions now.

Perhaps offering the first month free right now will entice some 12 month subscriptions?

Some anger management required? ???

My unit off Ebay is working perfectly. It is connecting to another Netgear Internet router with 128bit WEP. Even if mine failed I would have asked for some advice before breaking it.

I think you're referring to the work that Peter U is doing for us in open sourcing the Topfield development we have done on both the Netgear router and the Ice TAP.  It's well under way and I'll post the exact details wehn it's complete.

That is good news. Thanks for the heads up.

Hi Bruce.

I understand theoretical Wifi speeds are not often achievable. What I don't understand is why it takes 4 minutes to upload and 4 seconds to download. It's not as if its an ADSL link (eg 256/64 download/upload speed).

PS my Icebox shows a link speed of 44/94.

PPS - ICEguys - give us a clue on the "big" announcement that is supposedly coming ;)  :-X

Thanks for modifying the WiFi icebox firmware to allow up to 6MB file transfers.
That makes MP3 uploading from the couch a whole lot easier ;)

I find that uploading wirelessly is very slow though. Eg a 4MB upload can take 4 minutes, but the same file downloaded from the icebox to my PC takes a few seconds.

Have you considered adding a Topfield-friendly ftp server (like this http://www.8ung.at/aldarin/ftp4t.html) into the icebox so it would work like Altair? Eg Turbo mode and moving files around folders.

Good to hear about the friendly support Chris.

PS - My WGT634U connected perfectly with 128bit WEP and continues to perform well.

My only gripe with it is the 2MB file transer limit. Even if it could upload say, 5MB MP3 files, that would be a bonus. Ideally, it could allow downloading of recordings. The guys at the Topfield forums have added functionality using the WGT634U/Icebox to allow simple sending of Taps and "other" small files to the Toppy via WiFi.
