SKIPPA / Re: What Happens with Skippa when all the Dust Settles
« on: October 30, 2015, 01:50:25 AM »
Don't know if this has been answered elsewhere but is the autoskip function still enabled and working on the Skippa? Mine says it is still processing a show that was recorded on the 10th October... All new shows are recorded without autoskip...
Autoskip works fine as long as you have downloaded and installed the latest firmware 1.1.10604. 
The auto update wild not load it as it is not really supported by the New IceTV.

Check out the firmware threads.  There is a link to the download page and instructions there. Its quite easy to do. 

All you need is a thumb drive

All done. See how it goes now...

Thanks Leon

Must be something else going on with the station catchup TV ads then.. It is annoying having to start over when the ads crash but from further investigation it looks like it's mainly seven plus that has this problem...

BTW, while I was messing around with the settings last night the Skippa froze and I couldn't get it back even with a hard (power off) restart. I ended up doing a factory reset on it and even then was not able to connect via the wired LAN. It kept telling me that the Internet was not available even though I was getting an IP address and other devices on the same switch as the Skippa were working fine on the Internet. The boot kept stalling at initialising Skippa and loading guide. I checked the Ice website and everything appeared to be ok there, no outage.. I then changed to wireless and then the startup went through without any issues. I have not had time to switch back to wired and retest yet but will do that later.

Cheers

Hi Ian

That's just it, this is catchup TV streaming direct from the Internet. I wouldn't have though autoskip would even process this but I can't explain what is happening in the ad breaks on this media. If you watch it on a PC there is no way to skip the ads in the stream and they run from beginning to end.

It looks almost like autoskip is trying to process the stream... I'll try disabling autoskip and see if the problem goes away.

Cheers

SKIPPA / Re: EPG lockup
« on: October 02, 2015, 08:24:23 PM »
I have had the EPG lockup on the Skippa once as well in the two days I've had the device.

It occurred after I left the unit in overnight to finish a recording. When I started the rest of the home theatre gear the next day and went to the EPG on the Skippa the remote was no longer responsive. I hard powered down the system and restarted and it has been fine since..

Definitely still a few bugs there... Perhaps the next update will address some of these...

SKIPPA / Skippa partial freeze when playing back online catchup content
« on: October 02, 2015, 06:41:35 PM »
Hi Guys

Not sure if this has been reported anywhere else...

I have had more than a few instances where the video freezes during playback of online catchup content like Plus 7 or Tenplay. It looks like the Skippa is trying to autoskip the ads but occasionally loses the plot and the video freezes. I then have to press Stop and fast forward back to where it froze. Play generally continues normally after that.

The autoskip is weird during the ads as well. The first few seconds of the ad are played then the screen goes blank and the next ad starts. The process continues until the show starts again.. Is this an autoskip issue or something else?

Cheers

Rob
