This could well be a signal strength related problem. As always, that can be due to the signal being either too strong or too weak. (There is also a distinction between signal strength and signal quality, which I do not really understand.) The intermittent nature of the problem is somewhat perplexing. Are there any cranes between you and the transmitter.  Do you get the signal from the transmitter on Mt Wellington or on of the secondary transmitters, which are lower powered if memory serves me correctly.

You could also try posting on the Beyonwiz forum.

Judy I have seen this before; but my recollection is that it is not always limited to Beyonwiz - I am sure I've had it happen on a Toppy.

Thanks for the update. Look for to the new version.

Incidentally, about to change to NBN, wonder if that will improve things?

Depends on the version of nbn - FTTH is best, and FTTN is the worst (can be worse than ASDL). As far as I can work out FTTC should be better. HFC theoretically should be as good as FTTH (in short term), but some (few?) users are having problems with modem rebooting (and generally causing havoc). The cause can be hard to pin down, making it difficult in some cases to resolve. On the other hand, Telstra HFC is much more reliable and does not exhibit these issues. The only outages I have had recently have been due to power failures or network maintenance (latter probably related to work for nbn).

I had doubling up on one of my T2 some weeks back. Relatively certain not happening with U4. I have ethernet connection, not wifi, but I recall having some other network issues about the same time (caused by power outage).

They were previously shown on 9 network.


Yes, it is now working as expected.

Probably take me a while to get used to the new layout. Old saying about old dogs and new tricks comes to mind.  ;)


Not convinced I like the new layout, but more important I cannot log into my account when using Chrome or Firefox (no error message appears); after one successful try I managed to log in using Edge.

Any ideas on how to fix this problem?

Yes, I had noticed this also.

You may be better off asking your questions on the Beyonwiz Forum.

Do not normally set recordings on my T2 or U4; however you can set series recordings by going to EPG selecting program and pressing record button; you then have option of one off or series recording. As far as I can work out these are not managed by IceTV but locally.

At first I misread you post and thought it was a U4, but it is T4 with which I have no experience. I assume you got it second hand as they are no longer sold new by Beyonwiz. This may explain why it needs a major firmware update. They work better when using USB stick to do the installation.

I am also a fan of this program. As soon as I became aware of the lastest 6 episodes being available I went watched one each night before going to bed.

The first 6 episodes were transmitted on SBS earlier in the year.


Beyonwiz / Re: T Series - Scheduling Conflicts Bug with IceTV

I have not seen this with my T-2; presumably the same problem can arise with the U4 as it runs the same IceTV plug-in.


IceTV EPG Content / Re: Daylight Saving & Duplicate HD Channels

Not sure of this is the same issue, but for 7HD i have two different programs displaying at 11.30pm - see attached image. One of them is also scheduled at 12.30am. I also had issues similar to those Judy has.

I think part of the problem is that on Toppys (at least) the EPG data did not fully download when I set-up IceTV after doing the service scan. There were missing programs which eventually populated. But the error messages did not disappear. I suspect the problem is mainly with the way Toppys download EPG data and update timers. I also noticed some phantom one-time timers the cause of which I cannot ascertain. Have not noticed any major issues with T2 or U4.

See attached image.

Not sure that this helps or is even relevant, but the timer is there on my T2 for next Sunday night. Same for my U4.
