Every Recording is now called "Ice TV program"
« on: May 09, 2011, 09:15:41 PM »
Seriously. Just looking through all the mac threads, just when is IceTV for the eyetv, EVER going to bee 100% fool proof..

This is my current problem since I changed my password (because of the darn playstation fiasco) and upgraded to 3.5.2

There is ALWAYS something with this service after an upgrade or change..

I mean IS Icetv EVER going to be 100% compatible with this platform  ::)

Is it EVER going to work properly?

I mean this has been a problem since 2007..see other thread on this..

Can someone help me out here ?

Thanks  :)

(This is probably Elgato's problem, so I hope you are reporting it there too, in more detail.)

I understand that this happens when you have no guide data, and a scheduled recording gets added.  EyeTV uses only the start/end/channel information from the remote scheduling service (IceTV in our case), and pulls the show and episode name from the internal guide.  From that point on, even if the guide data changes, the name of the schedule is fixed.

My guess is that you left the defaults of "fetch guide data daily" and "fetch scheduled recordings hourly", with empty guide data five days out (which is when IceTV starts to send shows to Interactive devices).

I've had to re-install EyeTV a few times (not Elgato's fault; these were hardware upgrades), and I've learned to leave fetching of scheduled recordings on Manual until I can see guide data in EyeTV.  Only then do I switch it to hourly.

  Thanks for the time to reply. Is this what I have to do? Reinstall EyeTV?

No, if you've got what I had, it sorts itself out in a few days.  Otherwise there's a different problem.
