Hi Tezza,

The choice was made to split this into two distinct parts so that the scheduling is better suited to PVR's.

So we have the family section and family fireworks first, followed by the adult section and fireworks as well.

Otherwise it would just be a mess with back to back recordings to get them all.
Regards,

Daniel.
CTO.

Something isn't right

In the icetv app I have nye pub quiz and fireworks from 9.15 to 12.15 then the Australia wide party from 11:00 to 12:00 and fireworks again from 12:00 to 12:15. So overlapping shows at the same time.

Tezza,

What you will find is that Icetv have created 2 additional timers to use for convenience. These additional timers combine the 9pm and midnight fireworks shows into a single recording, for example one is for recording between 20:30 and 21:15 (Family Fireworks show) and the other is for between 21:15pm and 00:15 (Midnight Fireworks show).

Or you still have the option of recording all 5 timers which correspond to the freeview tv guide, but here you would have a lot of overlap depending upon your pre and post recording settings.

Please refer to the attached jpg file which illustrates this.

I don't think it is that convenient, it cant be shown in the epg. They're never done that before and it still looks like a mistake to me.

Also, your table isn't correct, the 8.30 to 9.00 show isn't on ABC, its on ABC3's IceTV guide.
ABC
8:30 to 9:15 Family Spectacular, family fireworks and family party (I'm not sure there is a family party)
9:00 to 9:15 Family Fireworks (as a separately named program, not part of the New Year's Eve series)
9:15 to 12:15 Pub Quiz, Midnight fireworks
11:00 to 12:00 Australia wide party

ABC3
8:30 to 9:00 Family Spectacular
9:00 to 9:15 Family Fireworks (as a separately named program, not part of the New Year's Eve series)

But I'm not recording 225minutes to get 30minutes of fireworks

9:15 to 12:15 Pub Quiz, Midnight fireworks
11:00 to 12:00 Australia wide party

ABC3
8:30 to 9:00 Family Spectacular
9:00 to 9:15 Family Fireworks (as a separately named program, not part of the New Year's Eve series)

As per attached screenshot of my IceTV guide, I do in fact have the 8:30 to 9:00 show on the ABC, this correlates with the FTA guide (also attached), The 8:30 to 9:00 show is also on ABC3.

Here is a breakdown of the 7 NYE shows shown in the IceTV guide (as shown in the attachment)

1) New Year's Eve: Family Spectacular, ABC 8:30pm - 9:00pm, corresponds to FTA Guide
2) New Year's Eve  '2015 - Family Spectacular, Fireworks and Family Party', ABC 8:30pm - 9:15pm
3) New Year's Eve: Family Fireworks, ABC 9:00pm - 9:15pm, corresponds to FTA Guide
4) New Year's Eve '2015 Pub Quiz', ABC 9:15pm - 11:00pm, corresponds to FTA Guide
5) New Year's Eve '2015 Pub Quiz, Midnight Fireworks', ABC 9:15 - 12:15am
6) New Year's Eve 'Australia Wide Party, ABC 11:00pm - 12:00am, corresponds to FTA guide
7) New Year's Eve: Midnight Fireworks '2015', ABC 12:00am to 12:15am, corresponds to FTA Guide

ABC3 only has two shows for the 9:00pm fireworks
1) 8:30pm to 9:00pm and
2) 9:00pm to 9:15pm

1) 8:30pm to 9:00pm and
2) 9:00pm to 9:15pm
Then your icetv guide is different to mine. There is no 8.30 to 9.00 family spectacular in my icetv guide on abc that corresponds with the FTA guide (your item 1), only the one on on abc3.

Also, as I mentioned, it makes no sense to have overlapping programs. To my knowledge icetv have never done it before and it doesn't appear on my epg correctly, as I have overlapping shows.

It certainly doesn't make sense to have overlapping programs, I don't know how that would be shown in the epg.    ;D

Hi Guys

In order to ensure that anyone interested in recording the fireworks tonight we decided to combine the ABC shows into two episodes one for the family slot and the second for the Adults. This will ensure that the fireworks in both cases are recorded completely irrespective of when the actual event starts. The ABC3 was left as is so the Family Fireworks is available there as a 15 minute episode, I am assuming that this is a simulcast of what is on ABC.

That's all fine, by why have you left the single episodes as well as the new combined episodes. It stuffs up the epg.

You've tidied it up and removed the old single episode timers and then put up a post saying what you've done as if there was never a problem.

I've used my new TV's inbuilt recording facility to get what I want. It's not IceTV's job to play around with EPG schedules, that's what padding is for
