Hi Peter

We're aware of the continuing issues with WIN HD and we know it's frustrating, which is why Mitch cautiously said "over the next week". It's really a problem specific to WIN, unfortunately, though it's similar to the ABC HD issue.   

We're doing a WIN HD schedule off our own bat. The alternative is to have no WIN HD schedule at all (we don't really want to do this) or to dump all the SD shows in between the gaps, which we did at one stage until we were informed by subscribers that it was wrong. As you know, even if a show is available in HD or flagged as HD this can't be relied upon when it comes to WIN, who go off and do their own thing.

What we will do soon is get rid of the old "n/a" and put in a no data message or something similar that only appears on WIN HD. 

Thanks

Thanks Madeleine.

I agree that IceTV made the right choice in including SD multicasts on WIN NSW HD in the IceTV guide. I was only grumbling about WIN/Nine's decision to put SD material on the HD service.

I'm looking forward to the gaps getting filled in over the next few weeks.

We'll do our best with WIN HD.

It comes back to that issue of assuming they do what everyone else does only to find out that they don't. WIN is clearly struggling with some HD issues and this flows on to the way we schedule the channel.

The "no data" entries on Tues 2 Jun for WIN NSW HD in the ACT now have the title "WIN HD". That seems a bit odd as a choice.

This is what I'm currently seeing as "N/A Channel Nine" in the WIN NSW HD IceTV guide for the ACT:

SNIP

Complete? I don't really think so.

I think I found the problem.  8)

I know that WIN's scheduling is a bit all over the place, but I still have a whole bunch of gaps in the IceTV data I get. I'm happy for now that Madeleine has said that they're working on the problem.

The point I was trying to make was that just because the restrictions on using Nine's Time & Title data has apparently been lifted (still no statement from IceTV about it though), and that Sydney and other Nine regions now have much better data, doesn't mean that all the "Nine and affiliates" data is of the same quality.

Now changed to be more like what Madeleine suggested. The missing information on WIN NSW HD for the ACT is now showing as "No data - WIN HD" for Tuesday and Wednesday.
