Icebox2... Features ?
« on: June 28, 2006, 05:58:54 PM »
Hi All,

Ive been reading about this Icebox2 Asus Wifi thing and here lots of talk about what it can probably do, but I cant find one conclusive feature set listed anywhere.

If I were to buy one, what can I do with it and what are the benefits ?

  • Schedule EPG fetch and upload to my Toppy without PC ?
  • Access Toppy remotely from Internet ?
  • Transfer files between Toppy and External USB HardDrive with a PC ?
  • Connect it to a wired network instead of using the wireless ?
  • Connect other network devices to it (XBOX, Neworked Printer, Other PC, etc) ?
  • Does it retain all its router functionailty ie: can I replace my old 802.11b router with the Asus ?
  • Anything else ?

While the thought of having the IceBox2 do the EPG automatically for me is very tempting, I cant really justify the expense  (to the other half that is :'( ) for just that one feature mentioned on the IceTV website

Look forward to your responses...

You can do this daily, however if you keep a PC in the loop you can do so much more - have a look at TED/S-ICE

Access Toppy remotely from Internet ?
From what I've seen elsewhere (Toppy forums) this can be done but requires a web server to be available, so needs a PC of some nature available.

Transfer files between Toppy and External USB HardDrive with a PC ?
Easy via ftp.

Connect it to a wired network instead of using the wireless ?
Yup

Connect other network devices to it (XBOX, Neworked Printer, Other PC, etc) ?
I've seen discussions elsewhere in the forums about xbox connectivity, but I believe it can.

The wireless box simply makes it so much more flexible to access the Toppy.
