How do I change the guide region that I am receiving on a TF7000HDPVRt?

If you move areas and need to change the guide region that you receive then you will need to run through a couple of steps to do this.

Note: If your recorder is not a Topfield TF7000HDPVRt PVR please see How do I change the guide region that I am receiving

This article assumes that your recorder already has the correct channels scanned in and the date and time are correct for your state.

First you will need to log in to the IceTV website and go to "My Account > Guide Settings" where you will see the Region option. Set the correct region and channels for where you live and then click on the "Save Settings" button on the page. 

Then perform a normal guide update for the Topfield as follows. Click the link below to download the latest guide file. When asked enter your IceTV Member ID and password.
