Skippa issues
« on: November 12, 2015, 03:40:27 PM »
    Hi Folks,
    I opened the Skippa box - and the very next day they went into administration. That didn't bode well!  ::)

    Here are a couple of the "features" of Skippa that are bugging me:
    • It sometimes freezes when I am using the remote. Only way to recover is to pull the power plug.
    • I have 8363 files video files shared on my Buffalo NAS (running Twonky server 6.0.42) - Skippa only sees about 4 pages of them. (I am bypassing this by renaming the folders I want to watch with a "1" prefix, so it is at least visible).

    I am at the latest level of firmware. Not even sure if it is worth raising these as bugs.

    Thanks for any suggestions.
    Cheers,
    Rob

Rob - similar issue here - mine freezes usually overnight and sometime while were watching a programme - I suspect it may be heat related so were putting an extra fan on it to try and keep it cool
I really like it and the features when its going but the lack of reliability is killing me[/list]

Yes Heat can be an issue.

However, the power supplies have also been identified as a cause for freezing.

There is a thread in the Bug report section covering freezing

For those with a Skippa that freezes regularly there can only be 2 possible causes: Either a software bug or a hardware fault.

When you say you have the latest software, Do you mean the 1.1.10604 firmware?
If you are relying on the automatic upload it wont be the latest.

The 1.1.10604 firmware came out post Administration and was never available for Auto upload.
