epg content missing for Adelaide Channel 44
« on: July 31, 2020, 01:01:59 PM »
Hello.

Today is Friday 31/7/2020.

Epg content is missing for Adelaide Channel 44 on and from this Sunday 2/8/2020.

Below is the log for a reload I did just then, showing only "Adelaide 44 : 75".

Could you please unblock your feed for this channel ?

Thanks

PS I notice that content is missing for Adelaide SBS ONE HD on Wednesday.

Hi Chopper,
The coming week's schedule on Adelaide 44 is available now.  Unfortunately, we do receive the information from them in a timely manner.  We update the schedule as soon as is possible.
Cheers Gai

Thanks Gai.  Nice job.

Channel 44 must be slack to only update their info with 2-3 days notice :)

In the early days of digital TV in Australia, all the commercial broadcasters thought that 2-3 days of EPG was enough. The fact that IceTV offered a 7-day EPG was one of its big early advantages, though that is no longer the case, since the national and commercial broadcasters all carry 7-day EPGs.

I understand IceTV not being up to date if items are not available or something happens (eg staff absent or whatnot).

However, recently I've had to prompt a few times for content to be updated only a few days out. 

I had to post another prompt today (for content missing 3 days away) for Adelaide SBS VICELAND HD where content would have been available.

I wonder if there's a technical glitch somewhere.

Before anyone tries to suggest it - no it's not a glitch at my end.  I worked in IT in a fair number of different technical capacities over time, so I have my gear sorted.

Hi Chopper, In your posts I believe it's always been ch44. it's simply the fact they don't send us the data and prompting doesn't elicit a quick response either so there's nothing we can do until they eventually respond.

Hello MD. 

No, it's been individual channels within SBS as well which is more surprising and perhaps inconsistent, per http://forum.icetv.com.au/iceforum/icetv-epg-content/5/some-epg-content-missing/6476/

If you look at SBS Adelaide right now now, Tuesday 4th Aug

  • SBS VICELAND HD is missing from Fri 7th onward yet other SBS channels are present
  • SBS VICELAND HD and SBS ONE HD are missing from Sat 8th onward yet other SBS channels are present

Cheers.
