IceTV EPG Content / Death in paradise
« on: August 07, 2017, 01:15:02 PM »
Plex Ballarat
Shows season and episode as title but not in correct field Plex requires. Incorrect season and episode info seems else for repeats are you working on this as Gracenote now has better EPG now and IceTV needs to be better to justify subscription and people are telling me not as much reason to use IceTV. I found IceTV still better but some of Gracenote data has correct season and episode when IceTV doesn't. With death in paradise you know what it should be as you put it in the title but not title name. Plex needs this info correct. Also reporting in this forum is hard on a phone can you look at forum software that works on a phone easily or works with an app like Taptalk thanks. Keep trying to recommend IceTV.

Windows 7 Media Center / Stopping early and fragmenting programs
« on: January 17, 2016, 11:32:05 AM »
I had Windows 8.1 running and started getting annoyed due to programs starting late and fragmenting. Decided to do Fresh install of Windows 10 and same issue. Gone back to window 7 again same issue.

I am in Australia

I have
Asrock Z77 Extreme6 mother board.
16GB Ram i7 Processor onboard Intel HD4000 Graphics
1 x Quad Digital Now PCIe Tuner
2 x Duel HVR-2200  PCIe Tuners
8 Tuners in Total
All Tuners latest Drivers
I use TunerSalad 32 to enable extra tuners

Seems after each rebuild it works well for a few days and random  Stops early then starts again immediately new Recording showing Error.
Usually 3 or more fragments starting immediately after each Event 3 failure so I get the whole program in multiple pieces. I have even spent several hours recording multiple programs with all tuners in use without failure!
I use ICETV for guide data and Scheduling programs but have even installed and run without ICETV and same issue although I have done my brain in trying so many options and I am sick of fresh installing and tuning and selecting Sources for so many tuners. I now have image backup for fresh and with media center install for Windows 7, 8.1 and 10

I use 2 Minutes Pre Hard Padding and 15 minutes Post Hard Padding.

From Event Log one example
Recording of Diagnosis Murder: Murder in the Dark began as scheduled on 16/01/2016 1:58:02 AM and stopped early on 16/01/2016 2:53:00 AM due to a schedule change.
Recording of Diagnosis Murder: Murder in the Dark began late on 16/01/2016 2:53:02 AM due to a temporary failure caused by either a system malfunction or a power loss and stopped early on 16/01/2016 2:58:00 AM due to a schedule change.
Recording of Diagnosis Murder: Murder in the Dark began late on 16/01/2016 2:58:04 AM due to a temporary failure caused by either a system malfunction or a power loss and stopped on 16/01/2016 3:15:00 AM.

One final issue is when we lose signal (my antenna is fine) due to being on the end of a chain of TV repeaters the program starting will very fast try All tuners including those in Use and cause similar issues!

Any suggestions appreciated.

General Discussions / Programs being cancelled bug
« on: June 01, 2015, 09:22:08 PM »
Is there any update on Programs being Cancelled. Third wave in 2 weeks that I am aware of. Windows 7 Media Center but from phone support sounds like multiple devices. Is there any update?

Sent email and phone call messages no response today.

Is anyone aware what is going on. It seems to be fixed then breaks then fixed and breaks missing out on recordings.

Had 3 more wiped today until I decided to disable IceTV and do everything manual until I hear back.

It would be great to get an email when the Ice servers melt down rather than a surprise when you find your recordings are showing cancelled way past where I can fix it myself and update my guide manually.
