i am a longtime beyonwiz user with two P2s and a T3. Been relatively painless experience except replaced HDD in both P2s but that was expected given their use and replaced some caps on one P2 power supply again not unexpected given their use. Ii splashed out on a T3 about 18 months ago and apart from some niggles with stability it has been ok but I don't mind having to fiddle a bit with the system.
out of the blue the T3 has refused to boot after going into a reboot midway through a normal viewing evening and never recovering. I tried the 60 second power off to reset the unit but now it is frozen with beyonwiz-T3 on the LCD and no other activity. I tried reloading the firmware but it is not recognising the USB in fact I suspect the boot loader is also corrupted. It doesn't appear on my LAN so at this point it is completely bricked - any thoughts from anyone as to how to proceed from here? I would prefer not to bin it!
I’ve got a beyonwiz DP-P2, the 2TB and I’ve had it for over 2 years. To be honest it’s never been great, it’s one of those machines that performs well about 80% of the time and just when you’re about to send it off for repair it rights itself and your tolerance levels reset. Then a couple of weeks pass and you notice that the timers aren’t recording and you have to dump them all and resend them again from Icetv.
Things have deteriorated and now I fear the hard disk is failing, when it powers up from standby it wants to do a check disc, and if you say yes it starts the check disc and freezes so you have to turn the power off and start it up again. I also have fears that the power supply might be dodgy because when you turn it on after an extended power outage, it takes about 20 minutes before it works, even though you can hear that it’s obviously on.
So the question is then, is it worth repairing? I’m guessing it’s at least a couple of hundred for the hard drive? Would a reformat resurrect it?
I don’t know that I’m game to buy another Beyonwiz, particularly because their new one is so new, and the Topfield (7000) I had years ago was a disaster, so i've been burnt by both camps.
I have just bought a reconditioned DP-P2 to replace my old DP-P1 that finally gave up the ghost.
I have tried to personalise the skip settings but it wont work. It shows my choices but the actual button push doesn't reflect these. I have reinstalled the firmware but no improvement.
Is this an issue with the unit or am I missing something somewhere?
I have a Beyonwiz DVR.Not sure what model.Its a few years old.
I have trouble with some channels not displaying programs,even up to a day or two before the current day.
It is very annoying if you want to program a week ahead.
I have compared the Foxtel IQ recorder and the programs are listed.
Is there someway I can jiggle the guide to prompt the programs to show?
