Topfield / Should Toppie be on 24x7
« on: September 23, 2008, 04:57:01 PM »
Is it best to leave the Toppie on 24x7? I normally turn it off when not in use, but then ICE can't update.

Topfield / Upgrade question
« on: September 23, 2008, 03:46:57 PM »
Current setup:
  • Billion 7404VGO WiFi 54Mbps
  • Toppie 5000
  • Icebox 2
  • Mediagate 350HD

I am thinking about upgrading and need advice please.

The Mediagate 350HD just can't stream video on wireless, even though my HP laptop had no problems on the same 54MB link :(
I would like to go HD, but want to have good connectivity and EPG.

Q1: What would be the best dual tuner PVR solution? Is the latest Toppie or a Beyonwiz the best?
Q2: Can one built a Media PC that is superior? I build PCs regularly, so the question relates to the PRV s/w - would any Windows Media based s/w equal or better the comercial PVRs?
Q3: Is there a dual tuner PVR with DVD BURNING feature? If so, could it be used to convert old VHS tapes, or only burn digital recorded programs?

I keep seeing IceTV EPG show the same programming repeated? Why is this? It makes it impossible to figure out the program and even more difficult to record both as with padding there is a fake "overlap".

General Discussions / Icebox2 help needed

The Icebox (aka ASUS WL500GP) has 3 types of network addresses

  • WAN port
  • LAN ports - wired
  • LAN port - WiFi

If I set the Network interface to fixed IP, which of these becomes the set address?

2nd question:

I can't get WPA2 to work. Is the pre-shared key in hex, or is it a normal text string? If HEX, then how many digits?

Thnx in advance,
