SKIPPA / Re: Recording Remnants on Skippa HDD
« on: October 08, 2017, 09:32:58 PM »
I'm no expert on HDDs, but your summation of the files make sense.

The Skippa does have a format function. 

Open My Week then step left and scroll down a couple of places you will find a screen showing the remaining file space.  There is a format option there.

I have a program on a disk someone gave me called Gparted (it's a free download from the web), that can be used to partition a disk in a number of different formats. I think its a Unix/Linix program so you have to boot it from the disk.

Can you delete the files?

When I attempt to set up an existing recording on a different device (i.e. to record the same program on two devices) the app opens the screen to update the device.
As a result, the recording simply moves the recording from one device to another.

I also found my problem.  A combination of a loose network cable (i.e. Intermittent Network connection) and a ASDL Line fault (sometimes running as slow as 0.2 Gbps.  Both at the same time.

Batteries are good. Its very like when there's no network, but the networks good. A restart goes through without getting hung up at the contact IceTV stage.

SKIPPA / Poor remote response
« on: September 23, 2017, 10:13:42 PM »
Lately my Skippa's remote response is not so good.
Its a bit like when there is no network. There will be no response at all for a few minutes and then it will work for about thirty seconds , then back to no response for a couple of minutes.

Timers are coming in fine so the network's ok.

Any thoughts?

IceTV EPG Content / Murdoch Mysteries
« on: July 29, 2017, 10:56:30 PM »
For the second week in a row Seven have put three episodes of Murdoch mysteries on Thursday evening, one of which is a repeat (the third episode shown). Unfortunately we are getting the first and third episodes recorded. I assume Ice TV is identifying the second episode as a repeat instead of the third.  Can this be fixed for the future?

SKIPPA / Red line on the progress bar
« on: June 29, 2017, 10:08:42 PM »
I am getting a thin red line with a filled in triangle at the bottom appearing on my progress bar when playing back a recording.  It looks like some sort of bookmark.  It doesn't seem to have any affect and causes no problems. 

I am just wondering what it is and if possible how to clear it

SKIPPA / Re: Skippa not connecting to Ethernet

Before you give up, try a factory reset then put in your settings again.  if that doesn't work try formatting the drive as well. Mine has come back from all sorts of weird behaviours after a format. 

In addition, the Skippa can be difficult to pry away from a wireless network setting, or a bad network setting.  It tells you everything is OK when it is failing to connect.  The only ways to confirm it is connecting is to ping the address from a computer on the same network.

Yes a reboot sorted it.

All the timers in My week are missing on my Skippa.  The series are all there but the timers are missing.  The network connection seems OK (i.e. the remote works fine)

The fetches appear up to date as well

All is well here as well

I tried the same thing and it replied with "can't find ICE TV".

I should also add that I tried resetting the EPG, but it didn't help

I too have the same problem.  I also have two Skippas.
One (Skippa) fails to record. The other (Skippa2) works OK but all the series recordings have disappeared.

I can see them in the APP but not in Skippa2.

All the timers have been moved.  So I am now looking for a way to transfer the video files on the SKIPPA over to SKIPPA2. 

The lack of an FTP client on the Skippa seems to prevent this.

I can see both the Skippas (and their recordings) on the computer and I can Cast the programs to either of the Toppys and the smart TV (but not to the Skippas), but I am at a loss as to how I can move the files from one Skippa to another.

If I can do this I will try a factory reset and a format on the SKIPPA to see if that resolves the recording issue.
