Title: 3 TV shows failed to record due to errors in the IceTV guide & almost a 4th
Post by: BazzaG on March 23, 2020, 12:43:42 PM
I have the following shows set to record:

* Habitus House of the Year (listed as House of the Year opn IceTV)
* Bluey
* Stateless

But ALL 3 broadcasts failed to record yesterday due to errors in IceTV TV guide.

Re: Habitus House of the Year

IceTV had a different show listed at the 11:30am start time.

Yet, other TV listings web sites had this show correctly listed, eg. YourTV & OurGuide + plus others.

Fortunately, it appears that CH7 has some repeats scheduled for next Saturday.

Re: Bluey

I noticed late on Sunday that Bluey hadn't recorded the 8am 1st broadcast on Sunday morning. This I have series recording for NEW episodes only, I also missed the repeat broadcast at 6:20pm. As a result I've completely missed recording the episode, and I will have to wait until the ABC repeats the episode sometime in the future.

I then noticed that Bluey for Monday morning was listed as a REPEAT. While I setup a recording for this mornings broadcast, I would have also missed this episode as well !!!

Re: Stateless

While I'm not exactly sure why there was no timer set on my U4, however, I believe it was for the same reason as Bluey, ie. marked as a REPEAT. Unfortunately, I realised that the timer was missing about 1 or 2 mins after Stateless started. Again, the ABC repeats the episode on Saturday night.

NOT HAPPY.

While I accept that late changes will be missed, eg. the ABC dumping of Grand Designs last night with a virus news special, surely whether a show is a repeat or not can be correct ... particularly given that BOTH Bluey & Stateless are NEW shows/seasons.

Hi Bazza
Have checked our ABC Schedules and note that Monday morning first run of Bluey was incorrectly marked as a repeat. I have checked all upcoming episodes and note they are correctly marked as new.  Stateless on ABC Sunday 8.30pm was marked as a NEW show not a repeat in the IceTV guide as it was the previous week. Therefore this was not the reason for your failed recording of Stateless.

Fair enough, but several questions remain:

* Why wasn't a timer added to my U4 for Stateless? There was definitely NO timer defined, which is why the recording didn't start and I did NOT manually delete the timer.

I did resend the timers to my U4 from your website and a recording did start but it started about 25 mins or so into the broadcast. Had I logged onto my U4 a little earlier I would have been OK.

* What about Bluey on Sunday? This is the most annoying given that I missed BOTH the 1st run and the subsequent repeat.

* Why did IceTV have the incorrect listing of Habitus House of the Year? Particularly given that other TV listing websites did have the show correctly listed.
