DP Lite not receiving recordings

Post by mikejgrantham » Sat Nov 19, 2011 09:09

Hi All,

Trying to find out if anyone else is in the same boat.

I have 2 devices on my IceTV acc. The first device is my Topfield 2400 on wifi which after a rocky start has been pretty stable on the 18th oct 2010 firmware.

The second is the DP Lite with the latest firmware, network cable direct using my ISP time.

Both are given there IP address by my router via DHCP with the router set to give them the same IP via the MAC address of the device.

Sofar so good.


Every now and then ( totaly random ) the DP Lite says it has no connection when I use the test user info feature in the ice guide menu.

The usual reason why I check is I have noticed that a recording that is sched on line has not appeared.

The other times I check is after a power failure / daylite saving changes / etc

I checked this week because I noticed that shows shed for the Topfield had shown up on the DP Lite.
Later in the week we also had a power failure.

Did the usual litany recommended by icetv for the DP Lite but noticed this morning that 2 sched shows ( part of series rec ) did not not rec.
So I redid the litany for the DP Lite.

Any suggestions / recom gratefully received.

I have copied this post direct to IceTV support.

Regards

mike

No, so far, wrong, as seem to have described it. The two should have different fixed IP addresses.

The IceTV forum, if that's what you mean (I see you've posted this there), isn't IceTV Support, but a user forum. However, IceTV staff do often respond to problems posted there.

The IP address is fixed by the router, they both have there own IP.

There IP's are fixed by the DHCP server on the router

That is the reason I mentioned ICE TV support, because I have given them the same info.

Thanks for the reply

Mike

OK, that wasn't clear in the original post.

Well, that's the problem with posting the same question in multiple forums.

mikejgrantham, the users who know most about IceTV on Beyonwiz regularly read both the IceTV and the Beyonwiz forums. Of course, that's not obvious to new members of either forum.
