Program start / finish time delays
« on: December 26, 2011, 09:11:33 AM »

Hi,

I assume this has come up before, but can anyone tell me how to / if you can "add" time to ICETV record reservations.  I am getting totally pissed off by missing the end of programs recorded on the commercial channels!  ABC and SBS seem to keep to schedule most of the time, but the commercials NEVER keep to schedule, and there is USUALLY a delay of between 5 and 15 minutes with their rograms starting, which means you miss between 5 and 15 minutes at the end.  I have a TF7100HDPLUS.

Hi

Customer support is closed today, however we have a knowledgebase area on our website with info about how to add padding to your Topfield recordings.

http://support.icetv.com.au/entries/20153037-how-do-i-setup-timer-padding-on-the-topfield-or-why-do-i-miss-the-end-of-my-shows

If you still have problems then IceTV Support will be open again on Wednesday, December 28, from midday to 4pm. They can be reached on 1300 654 803, which is a free call.

Hope this helps

Thank you.  I had this set up before, but it didn't seem to help, so I assumed it was only for recordings set up using the Topfield's own timer, not for Icetv.

I'll try it again...

cheers,
:)

On all PVRs there are circumstances where padding can't be applied. For instance, if you have ABC1 and Seven recording 1900-2000 and Nine recording 2000-2100, then one of the ABC1 or Seven recordings can't be padded. Similarly, if you have Nine recording 1900-2000 and ABC1 and Seven recording 2000-2100, then the Nine recording can't be padded.
