Title: Vista Region error
Post by: kjfarrell on February 04, 2007, 08:44:01 AM
I keep getting incorrect region errors with my guide. It works 1st time but when it updates the next day I get these errors about not having the right region set. Obviously everything is set for Australia.  :-[

Anyone else seen this happen?

You'll need to either install the PIMP Vista Beta (http://www.icetv.com.au/iceforum/index.php?topic=549.0), or use impacts workaround (http://www.icetv.com.au/iceforum/index.php?topic=540.0).

Reason being, there is an update service that Microsoft have implemented that returns the guide download link back to default every time it is run - this effectively removes the Ice Guide data from your system so it can't get the guide data.

The PIMP beta for Vista has this fixed (as long as you tick the box in it's settings), and impact has found the service/task and documented a way to disable it. If you don't want the PIMP benefits of remote scheduling shows, choosing a guide download time or controlling the padding of your recordings, then use impacts method.
