Why is tonight's (14 May )episode listed as a repeat?  Based on the synopsis & title, Past Life, it is a new episode.  Episode 10 in fact.  Thank goodness I happened to check up when I noticed nothing was scheduled again this week.  Shudder at the thought that if I missed it, I would have to catchup on that awful 7Plus website.

Unfortunately I am interstate at the moment so can't check.  But programs have surely changed in the past & if that was the problem, would have encountered the issue previously? 
Hope to heck that Grimm 2nd last episode records tonight as the thought of using sevens terrible catchup service is extremely annoying.  Have the same problem for Mrs Brown tonight.  Earlier this week it was Australian Ninja. What I did try when I got the Grimm email this afternoon, was cancel series recording & then create it again. But got the conflict message again later. Perhaps the recorder hadn't gotten around to removing the previous schedule before it came through again?

I'm getting timer conflict messages for programs when there is only one program set. So it's impossible that there is a conflict on my Humax 7500T. Usually genuine conflict emails come through days in advance of the actual program but these seem to come on the broadcast day of the "problem" program.

Ok, I can see nice red dots in My Week, except .......... for that first dang episode of Carter (Monsters) again!  Its a doughnut.  Why is that episode such a problem.  I seem to remember a current topic in the EPG forum where a Topfield (?) user is having an issue with the first episode as well.

I'll just do a manual schedule to be safe for Carter.

I just went to check "My Week" to see if any of the reservations been sent through.  No go but there was a change in what I had already setup.  I had four programs set via the EPG, Top Gear, two episodes of Agent Carter & Sleepy Hollow.  All red circles this morning.  When I went in to the My Week, the first episode of Agent Carter is now a red doughnut & some program called Scandal was set with a red dot as a single recording.  I didnt set a recording for that. 
So I delete that recording & now both episodes of Agent Carter are red doughnuts.  Deleting the Scandal reservation changed the second episode of Carter.  What the???

I'll have to carefully check whats on the actual machine tonight & make sure the recordings actually start when they supposed too.  I think I'll set up a manual single recording that spans both episodes of Carter.  From previous experience when you set up those type of manual reservations, Ice does not override it & just shows an error on the My Week page.

Thanks Daniel

Glad to know that I am not alone.  I feel that this problem began on the Wednesday.  On that day I received an email saying that the first of the two Agent Carter episodes had an error.  I looked at my schedule & there was no conflict that could cause a problem.  Nothing happened when requesting the reservation for the episode be resent.  In fact no new reservations have been sent since then & Tue the 9th is the last.  Additionally last Thur, my only recording for the night (the Checkout) did not happen, discovering this when I noticed it was on.  Looking at the schedule on the Humax I could not see it.  I checked the device page on the website & could see that IceTV was syncing with the recorder.  The following night, my recording for another program did not happen as it had disappeared from the reservation list.  Yet I had seen it there the previous night. 

To fix the recordings not being sent, I tried a rebooting, resend of everything & remove IceTV as the TV guide & then re enabled it.  No reservations have come through.  In fact I have nothing because of the guide reset.  For tonights programs, I have resorted to finding them on the guide on the Humax & reserving them there.  When I look at my upcoming shows on the website, I can see these as solid dots whereas the rest of my weeks programs are doughnuts indicating they have not been sent through.

Didn't Ice do some sort of maintenance last week on their servers?  Anyway, we need a fix!

You are correct.  Fantastic!  So logical when you think about it yet its the one thing I did not try.

Humax / Extending a manual recording
« on: October 21, 2013, 07:27:11 PM »
Occasionally when watching a programme I want to record it as I cant stay till the end.  If I hit record, the Humax will end the recording at the end time dictated by the Ice EPG.  However, as we all do with our scheduled recordings, I need to add padding to the end of the recording.  How do I manually extend the duration of the recording that I have manually kicked off?

Yes I updated on Saturday to it as well via the portal.  I see that the Humax website now lists the .09 update.  Since the update, the front screen on the machine no longer has any display.  Fred do you have the same issue?
We'll after 2 nights, tonight the display is back.  Don't understand how that can be seeing I have made no setting changes.

Humax / Re: Recording consecutive episodes
« on: July 15, 2013, 07:38:04 PM »
On my version of firmware, which is not the one that has just come out, the first episode is recorded without padding (1h) & the padding is then applied to the second episode (80 min).  Tonight there is a double episode of Red Widow & as I am tired of having the break appearing during the first recording, tonight I have cancelled the second recording & the extended the first recording direct in the schedule on the Humax itself.  This will give me both episodes in one file.  Easier for watching or transferring off the machine if I decide to first rip the adverts out. As I am also recording Up all Night which comes afterwards, it will be interesting to see if Red Window will be padded & Up all Night recorded with the second tuner beginning at the programmed time. In essence, is it possible to get an overlap?
