confused about scheduler tasks
« on: October 13, 2011, 11:10:55 PM »
I really don't understand how IceTV works, so excuse me if this is a dumb question ... but ... when I go to IceGuide>Check User Info ... I get a message saying:

Wait .... minutes to get scheduler tasks
Wait ..... minutes to get scheduler tasks
Try to get scheduler tasks

But nothing here seems to change  ...

The reason I ask is that all my timers are wrong (maybe since daylight savings changeover?). I have tried "resending all recordings" and also cleared the EPF disk cache, but after over a day I have only received a couple of days settings back ....

Can anyone explain what this is about - I have looked in various places, but can't find any info ...

BeyonWiz?  Looks like the same messages I would expect to see on mine.
First part was due to the fact that the box is only allowed to fetch the scheduled timers, 30 minutes apart.  And you will see the time for the next fetch counting down.

This all presumes its a BW.
Disable Ice in your setup
Ensure that your time on the box is correct.  However you do it.  Auto time/network time/DST.

Then go to setup >system>>initialise>  clear timers   and also clear epg.
Go to Ice website, resend all timers.
Back to BW, enable Ice.
You should see the messages re EPG, and schedules appear, with a countdown of times for the next fetch.
Up to 30 minutes for scheduler tasks, and 1 hour for EPG.



BeyonWiz, T3
