IceTV EPG Content / Re: ICETV EPG crashing Topfield 2400 again.
« on: April 22, 2016, 11:00:20 AM »
Don't know if this has already been suggested, but do you have PowerDVD or other Cyberlink software running on a computer on your network?

If she is already using a Topfield, I suggest getting an IceTV compatible TMS Topfield - the user interface is pretty much the same as what she is used to.
If you can get a 2400 - still some around - that would be a good one. The 5300 is the new version of the 2400 and looks and seems very similar - but I have no experience with that model.
If you connect the Toppy to the internet for her, you will be able to manage recordings via IceTV from anywhere with web access - your home, work, smartphone or tablet.

Hey Ice team - it ain't gonna fix itself.

IceTV EPG Content / Tyrant Tues 12 April

The episode of Tyrant late Tuesday night is marked as a repeat - I suspect it is a first run.

Postpadding of 10 minutes is inadequate. I use 25min.

Address your displeasure about the broadcasters' not keeping to their schedules to the broadcasters.

Extra padding is such a simple fix. You are wasting the pre-padding - especially for shows during normal viewing times. Cut it back to 5min.
There is no advantage to the networks in starting early. They deliberately run late to try to stop you from changing channels.

General Discussions / Re: Which PVR

As you know, good PVRs last quite a few years - probably longer than his non-connected condition.
As such, I'd recommend a PVR that is Ice capable but not dependant. The T series Beyonwiz probably needs a tech savvy carer so, IMO, that leaves  the TAP and IceTV capable Toppies.
The 2400 is good if you can find one and the the new 53xx should be very similar - though I haven't read much about them.

Other guides show the POI episode early AM hours tomorrow as a repeat.

Thanks Dave,

That's the answer I was hoping for.

General Discussions / Existing Series Recordings on Ten HD
« on: February 26, 2016, 03:11:13 PM »
Now that Ten (and Nine) are simulcasting the primary programming in HD, what will happen for series recordings that have the "Prefer High Def" option selected?
Any need for user input or will/should it happen automatically for timers that have not yet been sent?

Paul55 has posted that he has 5 active recorders in the account, so a dummy entry may be a bit tricky.

Yes, the reduction to 5 devices has hurt me a little. Still, it's probably a reasonable number for the vast majority of users.
I can't remember the reason IceTV gave for reducing it from 10 devices, but it's still better than the original 3 or 4 devices.

Dave effectively suggested in the other thread to put the Toppy 2400 first in the list

He suggested it as a possibility, but I really don't want to muck around with the Toppy because that has been the least robust.
I may have stumbled on a 'solution' while mucking around. It seems that both the daily fetch times for the miscreant FauxP1 were occurring at the same time as other fetches - the AM time with the other 'problem' Wiz and the PM with the Toppy.
I've changed the fetch times to deconflict and things now seem to be back on track. Time will tell.

Don't know if IceTV did something, but FauxP1 suddenly downloaded the timers this morning. Only difference to any other day is that I turned it on at a different time to usual.

Beyonwiz / Timers Being Sent to Wrong Beyonwiz
« on: February 19, 2016, 10:03:50 AM »
I previously posted this in the smart recording section of the forum but thought it may be better here.
I have 4 Beyonwiz DP series PVRs (with unique names) and a Toppy 2400 that all connect successfully to IceTV. I don't believe I have made any changes to the PVRs or on the website for months. However, over the last couple of weeks, some timers are being sent to the wrong device.
2 of the BWs an fthe Toppy have been fine, but the other 2 Wizzers are having problems.
If support staff read this and have access to my account details (Paul55), the following is happening.
The miscreant PVRs are named RumP2 (1st in the list) and FauxP1 (last of my 5 devices). Timers set (via the website) for RumP2 are appearing on FauxP1. Timers set for FauxP1 aren't appearing on any machines as far as I can tell.
All my devices except FauxP1 connect via my home broadband. FauxP1 connects via my 4G wireless hotspot.
Any help much appreciated.
