Title: New channels names not showing up on Widget
Post by: JPP on February 29, 2016, 09:10:02 PM
I know, I know, I'm one of those odd ball customers that still use the ICTV Yahoo Widget - I still find it the fastest way to quickly program and check up on my recordings.

For a while now, the new channels appear in the set-up Menu (under the i option), but the channel names do not appear on the TV Guide - just blanks where the names should be. As there are now so many new channels, it's getting a bit confusing. Any chance of fixing this issue?

Well, I don't think it is being supported, so I doubt any changes will be made to it.  And yes, I still use it too  :P

While I can't promise anything I do still have access to the source, so with a lower than normal priority will see what I can do...

Here's one I prepared earlier... 10 minutes ago  8)  The new channel icons are bit bodgy but they'll do for now.

Known Issues:

- The Register button does not work (results in webpage not found error in your web browser). Anyone without an IceTV account will need to create a trial account from the website or free phone app account from the phone apps.
- The Authorise button works but the web page that opens is missing it's template so is not formatted nicely.

Download widget here:

The forum does not like https links so you will need to right-click on the following link and select 'Save link as' or whatever your browser calls the download option).

Thank you very much, Dave.  It works, except I am still missing one.   ::) I think it is the food network?

Here's a newer version with the Food channel fixed and all broken urls fixed.
Plus it now works for Broken Hill residents.
Also the 'More.. ' button on the Recommendations tab takes you to the 'Coming Soon' page on the website.

It wasn't Daniel who done the deed... I did it in my own time over the weekend out of curiosity  ;)
