Channel Ten Programs Timings
« on: October 25, 2015, 10:22:51 AM »
I have 4 prime/night time timers set for channel Ten this week and the Ice guide has all of them starting 10 minutes after the 'official' guides.
Mon - Homeland
Wed -  Madam Secretary, Good Wife and Hawaii-5-O

Likewise, Nurse Jackie on Sunday night on 11.

Is this discrepancy based on information or experience? I hate missing the start of show because of guesswork. It is easy enough to set padding to compensate for late running shows, but shouldn't really be necessary for the beginning.

Hi Paul55 they have been time shifted as the previous shows have traditionally gone over time.

These shows have been starting 10 minute late for a while, so must be OK  (don't remember ever missing the beginning)

In the early days of this feature, I did miss the beginning of a few shows, but I haven't for a while. I still think 5 min pre-padding is still useful. We didn't miss any of the start of last week's Homeland (the only one of the OP's shows that we record).

I think that the time offsets are part of the predictive scheduling at the heart of IceTV. I'm not sure whether they also update the offsets from the broadcasters' on-line guides.
