IceTV EPG Content / Re: Corrupted My Week entries.

Ok, things should be looking a lot better now.
OK, thanks Daniel, all good now - just the 2 expected entries for Silent Witness, SD and HD, and yes, it wouldn't have been an issue as they were all just favourites as you said  :).

IceTV EPG Content / Corrupted My Week entries.
« on: March 28, 2018, 06:04:34 PM »
For the past couple of days, I have had a corrupted My Week schedule. The Silent Witness entry goes on for several "screen pages", but is eventually followed by normal entries.

Yep, too right, so did I  ;). But, like you've said, I don't think we missed much with our 5 min pre-padding. Sometimes thought of reducing it, but this was a good lessen not to  :).

Yep, but its fixed now.
Hmm... still getting them - one this morning just now 10:13am 29/6/2017

No, not yet anyway, but they're getting better all the time. For the moment I'm sticking with my Beyonwiz T2. Not having that 3rd tuner in the Toppy was the deciding factor. Spreading recordings/viewing over 2 PVRs was getting to be a pain.

Will you be striving to integrate ICETV into the Fetch?

General Discussions / Two 2400 Toppies for Sale
« on: March 09, 2017, 08:13:50 PM »
I have finally decided to abandon my still fully functional and good looking 2400 Toppies. Both have newish 500GB drives. I will leave all TAPs including my super favourite EPG, JustEPG on them - sad and a shame to have to live without it.

Anyone interested please PM me with your offer - thanks.

I am now, and have been for the past year, been running Win 10 and the old Yahoo Widget. I still prefer it over the full blown Web page thingymejiggy. I also use it to set Recordings which is why it would be nice to to see all of the new channels listed. Is anyone else also still using it btw?

I wonder and very kindly ask if anyone at ICETV would still be able to update it so that we have all of the new HD channels' names listed - Dave very generously updated the listings last time  :) :) . At the moment ABC HD and 7 HD need adding, and the old SBS TWO renamed to SBS Viceland.  I may have missed another one or two?

Topfield / Re: Dealing with Daylight Saving when you are away

Yes, I agree that it can be simplified  :). But, just to be sure that the Toppy isn't talking to the ICTV server when you set it to disable ICETV, I have found it safer to disconnect the internet before doing anything else. I know that there is an immediate pull on power turn on, but it doesn't always get serviced immediately. Waiting for about 5 min should be safe and well in time before the 15min interval is up, but I have been caught out and lost a lot of my timers  :(.

So, if we keep Step 1 in (for safety sake), you then have to go all the way through the 6 steps.

Over the past few years I have also found the procedure below to work every time on my Toppy 2400 for BOTH DLS changeovers. I have DLS setting set to ON on the Toppy. It correctly by itself switches over to the right time on the changeover. Using the July 2102 FW. Not tested it on later FW.

1) With Toppy OFF, disconnect the internet connection. (Pull out Ethernet connection or dongle)
2) Turn Toppy ON now and go to Set-up to disable ICETV
3) Now delete ALL timers on the Toppy
4) Next go to ICTV website (My Recorders) and select Resend all timers
5) Reconnect Internet connection to the Toppy
6) Finally, go to Set-up on the Toppy and enable ICETV

That's it. Nothing else is needed. Forget about all the paraphernalia wrt resetting, rescanning etc etc etc.

Yahoo! Widget / Re: Widget in Win10?

Hoping that an inspiration might suddenly spring up in one of my dreams...

Inspiration... go back to Win7 where everything just works  8)
Yeah, I did just that on my main PC  ;D. Will see if I can solve the issue on my notebook that's on Win10 before contemplating yet another try on my PC.

Yes, I too can confirm that it works in WIN 10  :).

But, like you, I'm still tearing my hair out over some issues like not being able to set up iCloud in Office Outlook 2010 where it refuses to install claiming I have an invalid user name or password. Have tried all manner of fixes as found on Google, but so far all to no avail.... Hoping that an inspiration might suddenly spring up in one of my dreams...

Hi Carl,

Before I sold my Skippa, I fitted it with an internal small and very quiet fan, running of the internal power supply. I still have the photos and other details, so if you're interested, send me a PM

This will happen if you Reset the EPG using the Red F1 button from the IceTV menu. The toppy then defaults to the first device in the account's device list. Just another quirk of toppy ownership.

Wow, something else I didn't know... :(.
I did this though AFTER I had the issues with Toppy 1, suggesting that before that, it still had the Toppy No 2 ID and I should have had all the timers come through to Toppy No 1. Which then means that the problems I had (and have had for some time) were not related to having the same ID for both Toppys.....

Time will tell I guess whether the issue is solved. Anyways, thanks for the informative and educational advice Dave.

Thanks Dave for your quick response, and explanation of how the system/server works - never knew about this behaviour.

It turns out, that my second Toppy (designated Toppy No 2) was somehow reset to be my first Toppy (Toppy No 1). I thus had 2 Toppy No 1s. All timers were set to Toppy No 1.

In this battle of who should win, it turned out that the second Toppy won and it in fact recorded the missing shows.

I've now corrected the problem and will monitor the 2 Toppies for the next 5 days.

Thanks again for the quick response.

After deleting all the timers again and then rescheduling them seems to have put the system in a spin. Timers are queued (hollow doughnuts) but don't get sent.
