EPG still hasn't updated today to show the cricket is not showing. Human has been fetching the EPG however still showing cricket on until 5pm. Is there something I can do to make it refresh or this an Ice thing?

It's been raining all day in Brisbane, so the cricket start has been delayed. No-one knows when, or even if, play will start today. It's not clear how IceTV would work out what Nine will broadcast instead - even the guide on NineMSN is still showing cricket all afternoon.

This is always a problem with rained out live sporting events. Thankfully the TV networks normally broadcast the whole event at a later date within the next week, though sometimes it is only a cut-down highlights broadcast.

One trick if you are concerned about a live event being delayed, and you aren't going to be viewing the event live, is to also schedule a single recording for the following show, or shows. The following show, or shows, plus end padding will normally be enough to record the whole event. And of course, if the extra shows weren't needed you just delete them afterwards.

According to the ABC Cricket blog, the umpires went out to check the pitch condition at 16:58. So there may be some play today, but not very much. The cricket broadcast is unlikely to continue past its scheduled end because the Nine news starts at 18:00.

Edit: 17:05 match abandoned for the day
