From a recent SBS Newsletter "Fargo season 4 will no longer premiere on Wednesday 22 April, due to the suspension of production during the COVID-19 pandemic. SBS will advise the program's premiere date in due course."

From Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fargo_(season_4)

"The fourth season of Fargo, an American anthology black comedy–crime drama television series created by Noah Hawley, is set to premiere on September 27, 2020, on the basic cable network FX and will consist of 11 episodes...The season was originally scheduled to premiere on April 19, 2020, but this was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic."

I have seen no notification yet from SBS as to when it might eventually show up here.

Yeah, just trying it now and it doesn't look like it woks properly at the moment.

I am waiting for the next version to go final before updating, its a major re-write which I am hoping will fix a lot of things.

Thanks Daniel.

Hi raymondjpg,

On the search page if you click on the "Advanced Search" link it has the option to search for topics only.

If I check the "Search in topic subjects only" it still only lists hits where the keyword is in the topic subject line. I was looking for a search option that lists hits where the keyword is in the body of messages.

Maybe I'm doing something wrong but I only seem to be able to search in this forum for keywprds on topic subject lines. Is there any way to conduct a search on subject lines and/or topic contents?

From a recent SBS On Demand newsletter "Season 8 of Spiral is due to arrive later this year. We’ll keep you posted."

The ABC has started advertising Annabel Crabb's Further Back In Time for Dinner, which looks like a follow-on to the earlier Back In Time for Dinner. Will IceTV be treating them as seasons of the same show, or will Further Back In Time for Dinner be treated as a separate series (and need its own series recording)?

If we look at TheTVDB they list three series of Back In Time for Dinner, the UK original as "Back In Time for Dinner", and two others as "Back in Time for Dinner (AU)" and "Back In Time For Dinner (CA)". There is a UK follow up listed as "Further Back in Time for Dinner" so to be consistent it would appear that the latest Annabel Crabb offering might be listed as "Further Back in Time for Dinner (AU)".

Just as an update on this one, we have changed the new series of 'McGyver' to 'McGyver (2016)' and we will look at doing this for new series that come up as well.

Thanks Daniel. That looks like it works across the Beyonwiz T/U/V series and TV Scheduler (which deploys the XMLTV stream).

The difference is not apparent in TV Scheduler either. I did have a query about episode metadata for the Beyonwiz T/U/V series recently, and was advised that this is available from the IceTV web pages. For example, the episode 'Gx-1' is listed as "Series, 1987, United States, English, Action, Season 3 Episode 6". The episodes from the 2016 series are listed, for example, as "Series, United States, English, Action, Drama, Adventure, Season 4 Episode 4".

It would be nice to have the series and episode numbers visible in both the Beyonwiz and TV Scheduler application, but I do understand that there are limitations with what can be displayed with the fields available. Barring that, I agree that it would be a good idea to distinguish between the two MacGyver series by labelling the 2016 series as MacGyver (2016). I don't think this should present any difficulties with field mapping.

Indeed, it might be worthwhile IceTV following the practice of using the titles from the TheTVDB for all TV shows. TheTVDB is not the only source of TV show metadata around, but it looks to be one of the most comprehensive. For MacGyver, they do distinguish the two series as MacGyver and MacGyver (2016).

If the recording is deleted via ftp then it is not transferred to trash; not sure if it is picked up by lost+found that is part of Linux, but I am doubtful. Just checked and lost+found is empty as I expected.

OK. I use OpenWebif to manage recordings, where deleted recordings are moved to the trash directory, which is accessible along with the movie directory.

Thanks Alison. There is still the question of whether IceTV can provide both episode titles, and series #:episode # somewhere in the IceGuide or timers, but that is probably one for Daniel Hall.

Hi raymondjpg,

At the moment we don't have it displayed on the screen, or in the timer (it is in the EPG feed though). The series and episode number are available via the IceTV website in the TV Guide and on the My Week screen.

Thanks Daniel I see it there now in the My Week screen towards the bottom of the entry, along with quite a bit of other metadata, and while the information doesn't come across in the timer, it might be preferable to have series #:episode # somewhere nearer the episode title (if given) in My Week and the IceGuide. I'm conscious that it would not be desirable to put IceTV to any unnecessary work.

Regards.

Thanks for the confirmation about it being a new series.

The good news is that for some reason I had not deleted 02.01 from my U4 so one less thing for me to worry about.

Ian

Good to hear it is not lost. If you delete a recording, unless there is some setting in the U4 modified to quickly remove it from trash, it can always be recovered from the trash directory for quite some period of time. The second series of the program can also be found at SBS On Demand, where I see that the only record of Series 1 (screened as recently as November last year) is a reference to there having been four episodes where in fact there were six.

IceTV is still presenting this latest series as a repeat, and like you, I do not think that it is. It premiered in the UK in March this year. I guess someone at IceTV will pick up on this post sooner or later and change it, but anything to do with SBS program scheduling must be a challenge for them given SBS's capricious retitling of series.

Would it be possible to include the season and episode number in future.


I think you might find that they can either provide episode title, or season and episode number in the episode title field, but not both. I'd like to be proved wrong, because I would dearly like to see both myself. And yes, it is a new series to Australia, and yes SBS seems to take some perverse delight in renaming series. Perhaps they think it is cute.

This was showing as a premiere in some states, and a repeat in others. I have now corrected across the board and you should see the change reflected in the next 10 minutes.

Thanks Tiphanee. I'm past trying to keep up with what the various TV services have or have not shown, and what they may erroneously mark as a repeat in some states, but be assured we rely on your expertise at IceTV to pick up on any such mistakes. I appreciate it is quite a task.

I doubt that The Brokenwood Mysteries 'Dead Men Don't Shoot Ducks'  scheduled for 9Gem, 8:30pm, Sun, 21 Jun is a repeat. It is the third episode in the latest (sixth) series of this show and as far as I know has not been shown previously in Australia.
