Quote from: Heinz on July 23, 2013, 08:26:02 PMAs much as we'd like to tap into the Christmas business, our "Icebox" is likely going to hit the market in early next year.
Quote from: Heinz on December 02, 2013, 10:33:51 AMWe've changed chipsets and are now realistically looking at July.
Quote from: Heinz on December 02, 2013, 02:30:17 PM And in February, we'll tweak our ad-skipping concept, based on user ratings of the performance of various algorithms........We're going to bring it out in good quality, without haste and without being driven by the competition.

Quote from: Heinz on August 11, 2014, 01:34:21 PM. We've just upgraded again to a higher-end chipset, in order to provide the best user experience with this feature. But every time you change chipsets, you have to port all of the middleware as well. This adds six months every time for consumer quality.
Quote from: snuke on November 10, 2014, 09:46:35 AMBased on the last two quotes of planned Oct release then a 6 month delay due to new chipset, I guess we move the goal posts to April/May 2015.
Quote from: Paul55 on November 11, 2014, 08:42:05 AMMy concern is the amount of resources being poured into this project could compromise the viability of IceTV if the PVR isn't a commercial success. I'd hate to lose the excellent IceTV service because the company tried to change from a software company with little competition to a hardware developer in a more crowded market.The other aspect is IceTV expending energy on 2 fronts - is this impacting IceTV development on new 3rd party machines?
Quote from: Heinz on August 11, 2014, 01:34:21 PMWe're not in a position to "leak out" what IceCube's killer feature exactly is -- for competitive reasons. We're obviously breaking new ground here and we're breaking the ice with PVR vendors, who have also expressed interest in porting IceTV's new capability onto their own brands. Again, the question there is whether their PVRs have enough horsepower to run it.

It won't cost you much to enjoy becoming part of a PVR revolution with the IceTV PVR! Our own PVR will be the first to market with some features that are setting the pace in Australia -- 4 tuners, prepaid IceTV, sleek new IceTV interface which is integrated across our PVR's remote control/tablet/mobiles and a killer feature that we won't announce until closer to the release date. Seriously cool and different! We are well underway and you will want IceTV if you are looking for a way to enjoy HbbTV/Freeview+ with your existing TV set at some point in the near future.
