If you only have a small number of recordings scheduled for the next week see The Easy 5-Step Method here.
 

If your Topfield has firmware newer than Nov 2011 follow these steps:

  1. Press "Menu" on the Topfield remote control.
  2. Select "Settings" then "Time".
  3. Change the "Daylight Saving Time" option (Set to ON in Oct and OFF in Apr).
  4. Press "Menu" to go back to the main menu.
  5. Select "Installation" then "System Recovery" then "Reset Service List".
  6. Select "Yes" to confirm you wish to remove all channels.
  7. Press "Menu" to go back to the main menu.
  8. Select "Installation" then "Searching" or "Service Search".
    • If you need to do manual searches to avoid auto search finding two of every channels do so now, or contact support for help.
  9. Scroll down to "Start Search" and press "OK", then wait until the channel search completes.
  10. Press "Menu" to go back to the main menu.
  11. Select "Settings" then "IceTV".
  12. Make sure that IceTV is still set to "Enable". If not, set it to "Enable".
  13. Select "User Info" and press OK then enter your Topfield's PIN (usually 0000 or 2606).
  14. Check that "User ID" has your IceTV username (member ID) entered (and not guest). Click here if you need help changing it.
  15. Check that "Password" has your IceTV password entered (and not 0000). Click here if you need help changing it.
  16. Select "OK" at the bottom and press OK, then check that the correct "Device Label" is selected. Use the left or right arrow to change it if needed.
  17. Exit the menu and turn the Topfield unit off.
  18. Go to My Account then My Recorders on the IceTV website.
  19. On the same row where your Topfield device is listed click on the Settings button.
  20. Click on the button that says "Resend all recordings for this device" and answer yes.
  21. Turn the Topfield unit on, and leave it on for 60 minutes or more.
  22. You are now finished. IceTV will send up to 12 of your reservations on the first fetch, and the remainder in the next few fetches.

 

If your Topfield has firmware older than 2012 please update it to a later version so that you can follow the steps above. If you cannot update the firmware then follow the alternative instructions at:
