The IceTV Accelerator will enhance the accuracy of your program guide and recordings. You are able to receive program guide updates every 15 minutes. Previously, these updates were limited to just twice a day. This will substantially enhance the accuracy of your recordings. To reduce your Internet downloads we have also made these updates shorter and more efficient.

The IceTV Accelerator sits between EyeTV and the IceTV servers, it automatically downloads program guide and recording instructions quickly and efficiently providing you with an improved user experience.
