IceTV EPG Content / Re: Killing Eve

Seasons 1, 2 and 3 have previously been on ABC. If it is season 3, it is a repeat.


According to the guide and the recordings, the episodes of The Mentalist transmitted on 31 December on &flix Melbourne were:
Pink Chanel Suit and Red Hot (Season 3, episodes 6 and 7)
however the episodes actually transmitted were:
Cackle-Bladder Blood and The Blood on His Hands (Season 3 episodes 2 and 3).

Things started to get out of sync with The Mentalist last week when, at the last minute Sever pulled the two episodes scheduled to be transmitted on Wednesday, and no ajustement was made by Ice TV to the episodes scheduled for the following day (Thursday). We now seem to be 4 episodes out - is it possible that there were two episodes scheduled for Wednesday 30 December and they were also pulled (possibly at the last moment again).

If the episodes continue in the order they have in fact being transmitted, the next episode should be Red Carpet Treatment.

7flix seems to be having problems with episodes on The Mentalist, there was a similar issue late in November.

I have not seen doubled up recordings for a long time on either my U4 or T2s.

Am I correct in assuming that they are all on 10 Network (Ten). If they are on 10, are they both on HD, both on SD one one of each. I had a similar issue some months back on one of Toppys, in that case sheduled for both ABC and ABC HD. I have removed all the SD LCN for which there is a HD version so no longer prone to the problem.

Thanks for the update. Sometimes it is not always obvious that there has been a change in circumstances such as these. Change is start time can be obvious, but a doubling of running time is not always obvious/expected hence easy to miss.

IceTV had Silent Witness Home Part 1 scheduled for last night, however 9Gem showed combined episode for Home Part 1 and Part 2, even with generous post padding I lost the end of the second episode. I assume that Nine provided incorrect informaiton to IceTV on the length of the episode.

Eatlier in the week DCI Banks What Will Survive was correctly timed and titled as a combinded episode.

Both Silent Witness and DCI Banks are shown either as two part episodes or a combined episode Nine Network (and ABC before it) and it is not always obvious which format is going to be adopted. This makes it difficult for IceTV to get the correct details into the guide and the timers.

I am sure the episode will be available on SBS on Demand - sure I saw an add for the program while watching Departure last night. For me using SBS on Demand is painless, have 100/40 cable connection with unlimited downloads.

It is possible that there could be a file system problem. I know very little about the file system integrity checks done by Beyondwiz firmware, but I have a recollection that some rudimentary checks are made when the OS starts up. Reformatting the drive can fix such issues.

I assume that the dive is USB powered, as you prevously carried to court. There could be a problem with the USB cable. Is the drive attached to USB 2 or USB 3 port?


PS I suppose I should have posted this on the Beyonwiz forum - will cross post so no need to respond here.

Hi Judy, out of interest how many tuners does you V2 have; just the standard 2, or do you have a one or two tuner USB stick as well?


PS. The BBC has broadcast Silent Witness as 2 part episodes since the very beginning.

Yes that is my understanding - but at least in the early days they sold versions with two episodes combined. These versions have been shown on both ABC an 9GEM.

For at least the last two weeks the wrong episode details have been given in the IceTV EPG data - presumably because inaccurate information was provided by the network. On 2 Decemeber the episode was said to be Shaddows Part 1 but was in fact Run Part 2. Run Part 1 was shown the previous week, but again had wrong episode information. According to the IceTV guide Shadows Part 2 will be on next Wednesday night; I would expect that it should be Shadows Part 1.

Nine seems to be showing the two part version of Silent Witness; at least in the early years the BBC also provided the two parts as one episode. Not sure if this is the explanation or not. I have a dim recollection that when GEM first started showing the program they aired the combined episodes. Not sure it that is part of the explanation.

IceTV EPG Content / The Mentalist 7flix 26-11-20 Incorrect espisodes names
« on: November 27, 2020, 03:25:13 PM »
On 7flix last night two episodes of The Mentalist were scheduled. According to IceTV they were The Redshirt (season 4 episode 9)followed by Fugue in Red (season 4 episode 10). I did not notice the episode names until this morning, and was surprised that  The Redshirt was on as it was on the night before. I checked the recordings themselves and  The Redshirt was not shown last night; the episodes shown were Fugue in Red (season 4 episode 10) followed by Always Bet on Red (season 4 episode 11).

I assume that incorrect information was provided to IceTV. The next episode shown should be My Bloody Valentine (season 4 episode 12). The IcedTV guide is show at 8.30 PM (Melbourne) on Wednesday December 3 is as expected My Bloody Valentine followed at 9.30 PM by Red is the New Black (season 4 episode 13). On Thusday December 4 At First Blush followed by War of the Roses (season 4 episodes 14 and 15). So it looks like it is only a one-off glitch.

I'd like to set a series recording on IceTV as i've been watching them on 9now

Peter, thanks for the comprehensive update. Unfortunately I do not pay much attention to my T2s. In particular I was not paying any attention to the content of the IceTV log. Hopefully I will remember to check it out next time I have a problem.


Peter, I cannot be of assistance. I am not aware of this happening with any of my T2s or my U4. I have not looked at the logs. If it will help I will do so.
