SKIPPA / Re: Plex
« on: June 04, 2016, 03:33:39 PM »
Thanks Dave

It's the only disappointment I have with Skippa. Sometimes if I'm wanting a recent recording I can generally find it with a few attempts but with older recordings or when I've got multiple episodes of a show recorded I just don't know if I'm watching the right one or the wrong one.

Thanks Dave

That sounds like a process to set up a Plex "app" on the Skippa and play media off my network. Can I set up a Plex "server" on the Skippa to play recordings on the Skippa to other devices across the network? That's where the Skippa is giving me pain. I love everything it does but my intent was to be able to play recorded programs across my network from the Skippa and it totally sucks at that task for the reasons I've already described.

I thought that maybe running a Plex server on the Skippa might overcome the issues with identifying programs correctly and displaying HD recorded programs.

Has anyone installed Plex "server" on a Skippa?

I really like my Skippa but it's delivery of recorded shows over DLNA sucks. It displays recordings with incorrect names so the experience can be very hit and miss and it doesn't share any HD channel recordings.  Was wondering if Plex might improve that experience. I'm currently feeding media off a Netgear NAS using plain old DLNA without any issues but keen to try Plex if it improves the situation for me.

Nothing that sophisticated in the Toppies. I have wondered about Plex possibly being able to run in the Skippa and help the distribution but I have no experience with Plex so just curious about it for the moment until I can do some more research.

Are you streaming the Skippa's recordings to other devices, or are you using the Skippa to play videos that are stored on other devices?

Hello Dave. This is the Skippa that is not playing well. I had 2 Topfields in different rooms and ended up watching in one room but the program I wanted was recorded in the other room. I hoped to replace both of these with the Skippa and watch anywhere from the one box. Skippa fails to show some recordings through DLNA to my TVs (Sony Bravias). I've had some success using my Pioneer Blu-Ray to play SKippa recordings but Skippa is still hiding some recorded programs even from that. I received the Ice TV email ad this week and wondered about maybe getting the Beyonwiz to replace the Skippa but wasn't sure if it would be better or similar.

That's the model. I had hoped to replace both of my Topfields (same model) with the Skippa but I've found the DLNA on the Skippa very unreliable and it either doesn't display a recording at all or mislabels it so I'm still using one of the Topfields.

Thanks. We have found the resume from previous point does work. Will be a real nuisance if other channels start doing this too.

Not sure if this is the best place to ask this but. I recorded a program for my daughter on 9HD a couple of days ago on my Topfield TF7100. Discovered when she watched it that we can't pause or fast forward the recording. This seems to be specific to this channel as I tried recording something else and got the same result. I can pause it live and timeshift however. Is there something special about this channel that causes this? Do I need a Firmware update? Can't imagine that will be happening. Any assistance is appreciated. Not sure where to start with this one.

I actually ignore the skip ad option when I'm watching recordings  as I found it was unreliably skipping throughout a show and I was missing parts of the program. It's a nice to have feature when it works but wasn't my main reason for purchasing.

I've restarted the Skippa multiple times today but I'm thinking now it's probably an issue with my Sony Bravias than the Skippa. I've managed to locate the programs I was looking for through my Pioneer Blu-Ray player in the other room which also streams from DLNA. For whatever reason the Sonys won't display the X-Files I recorded Saturday night although they happily show tonight's news. Bizarre!

Thanks for the suggestion Dave. I have restarted once. That was the first thing I tried. I'll do it again and see.

I was suspicious it might be related to folders as I know my Netgear NAS doesn't auto-refresh new folders but is happy to display files that I add. The shows I'm not seeing are grouped into folders by the Skippa. I was hoping there was some way to force it to refresh and display new content.

SKIPPA / Can't see recordings on network

I've seen this before but not since the firmware update. I've got 4 recordings on my Skippa that I cannot see from the TV in the other room when I access the recordings via DLNA. I've rebooted the Skippa but they're still not showing up. They're there if I access the Skippa directly and show recordings.

Is this a "refresh" issue which I've seen in other DLNA servers or is this some secret Skippa feature that I haven't worked out yet?

Love your work Dave. Really looking forward to when everything settles down again.
