Wireless
« on: April 25, 2005, 01:47:04 PM »
Anyone tried connecting a wireless USB bridge to the toppy? Would it be seen by my PC (mac)?

The way the commercial channels chop and change their programming would necessitate daily updates, at least. And I don't want to run cables or have to remember to connect all the time.

The Topfield only has a slave USB port and unfortunately cannot drive a wireless USB dongle. We are however developing just such a device that can do this.

Has there been any progress in this department?

Is the new Masterpiece capable of using a USB wireless dongle?

As far as we know it does work although we haven't actually tested it. We are waiting to recieve a Masterpeice for this purpose. Perhaps someone else in the forum has tried it?

As for timing of .rec file transfer ability, can't tellyou any more at this time.  When we get more customers wanting this we'll bump it up the priorities list, so tell your friends how great iceGuide is! 8)

We have done some preliminary testing using the Wifi Network bridge on the Masterpiece unit and so far there are no problems using the bridge with the Masterpiece unit.

Hi
Any idea whether the bridge works with mac osx, and if so can the Toppy's firmware be updated from a mac?
I have an Airport wireless network.

Yes, it does.

No, it can not. Topfield provide only Windows software. Topfield will not provide enough information to third parties to allow creation of firmware upgrade solutions for alternative platforms.

I also tried it to connect wireless USB bridge to the toppy at the same time but it didn't. So i should say it is not compatible with each other.

Wow, a thread jump from 4years ago.... you will have to clarify your Topfield model, this was talking about the SD Toppies that (after some great efforts by PeterU, Steve et-al) required a SLUG or "ICEBOX" to get the USB to a box with ethernet running ftpd-topfield (so it could be ftp'd).
