IceTV EPG Content / Life Sentence - wrong episode scheduled
« on: September 16, 2019, 04:43:00 PM »
Life Sentence - Sydney - Thu 19/9/19 - 12:40am
Most other programs have this episode listed as S01E09, rather than S01E08.  The latter was already screened 12/9

IceTV EPG Content / Lethal Weapon - not a repeat

Plex XMLTV - Sydney 9HD Thu 8th Aug 10:45pm
This episode is a premiere but is not being set to record unless I set to record repeats too

IceTV EPG Content / The Fate of the Furious
« on: July 30, 2019, 07:18:21 AM »
In Plex, The Fate of the Furious is a appearing as a series rather than a movie.
I realise it's being screened twice this week, and that it is a very long franchise, but still I don't think that makes it a series :-)
Sydney, 8:30pm Wed 31/7 and 8:30pm Mon 5/8

This week you have duplicate episode numbers on some episodes which means that Plex will only record one of them.
Plex, Sydney, 2pm on each of the following days...
I believe the correct episode numbering for this week's episodes are:
Wed 7/25/16 -> S02E03
Thu 7/25/16 -> S02E04
Fri 8/1/16 -> S02E05
Mon 8/1/16 -> S02E06

Plex / Re: Foreign Language Movies
« on: July 04, 2019, 09:05:36 PM »
Thanks Daniel,
I'll just have to hope that Plex will include it one day.  I'll keep in mind and try looking on your website.  Currently I search on Trakt to find more info about the movies. but it would be much easier to be see it in Plex in the same place that I set the recording.  The problem is probably worse now that SBS World Movies is available.  If they don't have many English movies then I might be better to just remove that from my channels list.

Plex / Foreign Language Movies
« on: July 02, 2019, 08:16:23 PM »
It seems there's no easy way to tell from the guide when a movie (or show) is in a foreign language.
Any suggestions?
I live in Sydney and use Plex with IceTV XMLTV

Hi MD,
I don't know why it would have to be just for Plex users?
And it wouldn't be something that you would need to hand-write each week.
Just generate a list of the shows that have an S01E01 episode in your database for that week?
But if you don't think it would be valuable, then that's fine.  It was just an idea.

I just now tried, as an alternative, downloading your shows.xmltv file and looking at it directly in Notepad++. 
But obviously it's not the most user friendly way to look at that info!
I was surprised how many S01E01s there were in that file (69 - though many were duplicated)


General Discussions / Suggestion: Email newsletter of pilot episodes
« on: June 19, 2019, 10:06:40 PM »
I wonder if it would be possible for IceTV to create another newsletter for subscribers that advised any series pilots coming up in the next week?
I can get a similar newsletter from Trakt, but that relates to US screening times rather than local Australian programming.
I think it would be good if such a newsletter contained all upcoming S01.E01 shows, even if they were repeats - that way we could know to start recording an old show from the start (assuming of course that the network played the episodes in order - I know they don't always)

IceTV EPG Content / Re: Travel Oz - no season and episode numbers
« on: June 19, 2019, 09:31:59 PM »
Further to the above, I've attached a list of episodes cut and pasted from the show's website.
Based on that, the 10 episodes you have screened for the next week, would (by rough title match) be matched to the following episodes.
But the dates on your episodes not only have no correlation to the dates on the show's site, but neither do they match the order of the episode numbers.
Yet your descriptions of the episodes are better than the one's on the show's site.  So perhaps the show's own site isn't that reliable?
I hope my first addition to thetvdb hasn't been faulty information!?
Here are the episodes...
8/28/14 = 3x24
8/24/14 = 2x01
5/11/15 = ??
1/25/15 = 3x13
4/26/14 = 4x01
11/23/14 = 3x27
8/31/14 = 2x03
9/1/14 = 2x04
8/9/14 = 3x28
6/7/15 = 2x06

IceTV EPG Content / Travel Oz - no season and episode numbers
« on: June 19, 2019, 08:25:12 PM »
I'm in Sydney using Plex and HDHR tuner.
Now, I'm not particularly a fan or expert on this Travel Oz show - I've never actually watched an episode yet!
But I thought I might take a look at it, so I added it to my recording schedule, and have noticed that it has no season or episode numbers.  I couldn't find it on or either.  But I did find an official site to the show at
So I thought, as a learning exercise, I'd try to add the show to thetvdb and trakt myself
So I've added 4 seasons and all episodes for each season including a name and description for each episode, copying and pasting direct from the shows own site.
The tvdb ID is #365661
However, the episode names appear to be similar but not identical to the ones shown on your guide. 
And the episode dates are also different (and a little more time-consuming to get from the official site) so I have not added these into thetvdb.
Is this tvdb information I have added something you can use in your guide?
If not, is there a better way I could have done this to make it useful?

IceTV EPG Content / Re: The Project - repeats
« on: June 19, 2019, 08:04:27 PM »
Hi Daniel,
I understand that what I want cannot work if your episode names are auto-generated.  I think it would require you to name the episodes by hand for this to work, and deal with the after-midnight repeats, rather than a change to how Plex uses the XMLTV.  Unless of course your system for auto-naming could be configured some other way.  If you're not able to do that, it's fine.  I'll just keep The Project low on my recording priority list, so that the repeats don't interfere with other recordings, and if I miss an occasional episode, then no big deal.  I'll rarely find time to watch them anyway! :-)

IceTV EPG Content / The Project - repeats
« on: June 19, 2019, 11:10:33 AM »
I was wondering if repeats of The Project could be named the same as the original screening?

Here's the problem...
I figured I should know a bit more about what's going on in the world and decided to record The Project rather than just dramas and comedies.
I'm using Plex, and initially setup to record new episodes only and to keep for 7 days.  But frequently I'd miss the original prime time screening (because I really am recording too much other stuff!).   So then I set it to record repeats too.  But IceTV names each episode with both the date and time of the screening, so Plex sees these as different episodes, and records both of them.

What I need ideally is for the episodes to be named with the date only, rather than time too.
Except that, if a repeat screens at/after midnight, then it would have to have the name of the previous night's episode (which is the one it's repeating, rather than the current date).

Is that possible, or is that asking too much?


Thanks Daniel
Happy Easter!

Thanks Daniel,
I did disable the enhanced programming immediately after trying it yesterday, so based on your advice, I will leave it that way.
Overnight, the guide has been updated with next Sunday's movies.  Of these, more than half (8 of 14) have no cover art when looking at them in Plex.  Would the IceTV guide normally miss that much cover art from your own metadata?
Without the "more frequent..refreshes" I'm guessing there's no way then to make sure the guide is updated before primetime each evening as your documentation suggests?
