heaven here… Now that
we’re through all of the ba-
sic features and functions
of the new Icecrypt box we
should take a moment to
deal with the huge range
of extra features that offer
lots of added value. First
and foremost, we have to
mention the message func-
tion that is integrated in the
Icecrypt software: It can be
used by the manufacturer
to display important infor-
mation right on a user’s TV
Available software up-
dates can easily be an-
nounced this way, for ex-
ample. If this is the case
the update procedure is a
flawless and efficient af-
fair, and Icecrypt even
provides a change log with
extended information on
new features. What a great
benefit! Generally, the Ice-
crypt software has a clear
focus on usability and this
is underpinned by the digi-
tal user’s manual that can
be accessed right from the
receiver’s menu, together
with a list of frequently
asked questions. Remem-
ber the times when you had
to think about where you
had put the manual in the
first place, then dig it out of
a drawer or closet only to
take forever until you find
the specific section you’re
looking for? No more trou-
ble with the S3700CHD –
take the remote, press a
button and find the answer
right on your screen.
As far as integrated mul-
timedia features are con-
cerned the Icecrypt soft-
ware offers standard fare
such as a weather forecast
service, but also specials
like YouTube, Shoutcast
(Internet radio), Picasa
(pictures) and even access
to Russian pay TV provider
Kartina TV. Added to that
are a web browser (Op-
era), an FTP client and an
RSS newsreader. IPTV and
WebTV are also offered,
but in both cases we could
not find any pre-stored
channels, which means us-
ers need to manually set up
these services. Our thor-
ough test confirmed that
all built-in features work
smoothly and flawlessly,
no matter whether we’re
talking about a YouTube
video, a Shoutcast stream,
an RSS feed or a website.
After all, that’s what really
counts for end users.
Obviously, the S3700CHD
can be used for playing
back audio and video files
