Doubled up recording
« on: November 21, 2018, 09:56:29 PM »
Not sure if this is a Wiz or IceTV question.  I ended up with two recordings of Jamie & the Nonnas
What would cause this?
Cheers,

They aren't quite the same - one is 5 minutes longer than the other.

I'd guess that there's been a mishandling of a schedule change, but without more information, it's hard to say even which end was responsible.

This has been seen before.  I've posted about what I saw happening, and I believe the IceTV server "forgets" it has the existing timer to update and creates a new timer for the scheduling change (as in 'Created by Scheduler SERIES' -- it's not an "Updated by").

I have had a look at this one and it looks like a mistake back on the 19th caused the second timer to occur, and for some reason the original timer was not deleted because of this.

The guide team are already aware of what happened and are taking steps to ensure this doesn't happen again, and we will check the keyword handling (as it was in this that the original timer was not deleted) to try and get this one fixed.
Regards,

Daniel.

The original Beyonwiz timer will only be deleted if the Beyonwiz gets a "forget" for the original ice_timer_id.

Sorry, thats what I meant, for some reason the server did not create the forget timer correctly, I am currently looking into this.

And this particular bug has been found and fixed on the IceTV server end, but there looks to still be some cases that can cause duplicate timers, but will have to deal with each when we can get examples of each.
