Title: Widget Displaying incorrect month
Post by: AndrewT on October 31, 2009, 11:43:20 AM
Is anyone experiencing this other than me?

The Yahoo Widget(current version) is showing today's date and month ok but the following month,which is November is showing December  - the interactive website is displaying the date and month correctly.

Was working ok yesterday

I have attached a screen shot

Clearing the cache and replacing the copy of the widget with a new one has not solved  the problem - the iPhone app is also working normal

Well, I just checked and I don't get anything showing past today!  Unless someone at IceTV has taken it down while they are fixing the date problem?

No, you're not seeing things - same here.

I did ring tech support this morning regarding this issue and was told it was going to be escalated to the Widget developers - hopefully will be sorted very soon but it only seems to impact the My Upcoming Shows.

I am still receiving data beyond today all displaying the month of December  - website and iPhone app are still correct

I did intend to make a new topic until I saw that my present problem is the same as the original report.
The problem has again arisen at the beginning of the month.
"My Upcoming Shows" for tomorrow onwards 1/4 are showing up as "Saturday, May 1" etc.
When I click on a  programme's details the drop-down shows "Thursday, 1 April" etc.
 
The "TV Guide" has no listings beyond the last show before midnight tonight.

Is anyone else seeing the same?

Might the same problem be removed with the same "fix" as was implemented last time?

Hi,

The last time this happened, it was a problem in the widget itself, and it was fixed in version 2.12. Can you please verify that that's the version you're running?  (The version number is at the bottom of the Settings page)  I tried both the Windows and Mac widgets just now, and they both seem fine, both for guide data and the dates on the My Shows tab. Although version 2.11 is definitely still showing the problem.

Thanks,
Russell

Thanks for the quick reply. I am running 2.7 (16). The problem has disappeared, probably at midnight on 31/3.
I disconnected from the Internet and the problem was still there when put my computer into "Hibernate" shortly after I posted.
When I woke the computer up on 1/4 the Widget was operating as normal. 
The previously "missing" information for all days in "TV Guide", and the proper date information was displaying in "My Upcoming Shows".
As per my original post the program details were displayed in "My Upcoming Shows" on 31/3 so the data was down-loaded but wasn't displayed in "TV Guide".

It seems that the problem may continue to re-occur at the end of  some months sometime in the future and resolve itself at the beginning of the next month. A minor temporary irritation to me but a possibly interesting coding issue to Ice.  Thanks again.

Regards Lindsay.

It is also going to re-occur for you, as you are running version 2.7 this still has the bug that was identified to cause this issue.

You should update to version 2.12 as this version has this issue fixed (if need be it can be manually downloaded from http://www.icetv.com.au/widgetdownload.shtml (http://www.icetv.com.au/widgetdownload.shtml)).

I have regularly checked for up dates via the "Settings" on the Widget but no response.
