IceTV EPG Content / Corrupted My Week entries.
« on: March 28, 2018, 06:04:34 PM »
For the past couple of days, I have had a corrupted My Week schedule. The Silent Witness entry goes on for several "screen pages", but is eventually followed by normal entries.

General Discussions / Two 2400 Toppies for Sale
« on: March 09, 2017, 08:13:50 PM »
I have finally decided to abandon my still fully functional and good looking 2400 Toppies. Both have newish 500GB drives. I will leave all TAPs including my super favourite EPG, JustEPG on them - sad and a shame to have to live without it.

Anyone interested please PM me with your offer - thanks.

I am now, and have been for the past year, been running Win 10 and the old Yahoo Widget. I still prefer it over the full blown Web page thingymejiggy. I also use it to set Recordings which is why it would be nice to to see all of the new channels listed. Is anyone else also still using it btw?

I wonder and very kindly ask if anyone at ICETV would still be able to update it so that we have all of the new HD channels' names listed - Dave very generously updated the listings last time  :) :) . At the moment ABC HD and 7 HD need adding, and the old SBS TWO renamed to SBS Viceland.  I may have missed another one or two?

For a while now, at various times, my timers have not been sent to my Topfield 2400, even though they are marked as being sent and show (solid dots). There are no clashes and no error messages are/have been received for these missing timers.

Tonight I have 4 timers set - 2 on ABC and 2 on SBS. Only one, "Insight" has come through - Dateline, Foreign Correspondent and "The Indian Dream Hotel are all missing.

As I said, this has been an ongoing issue for some time now. Updating/rescheduling the timers does not help.

I next deleted the series and then reset them to record (all series recordings), with the result that 2 shows, are now marked as having issues (yellow triangle). There are no conflicts, so something is amiss at the server end I suspect.

I did get the email notification through about the failures, so that part seems to work OK.

IceTV EPG Content / ICETV EPG crashing Topfield 2400 again.

It's the first time I've experienced this, but here in Sydney, the current EPG data is causing my Toppy 2400 to continuously reboot.

It's happening on both my 2400 Toppies, so I don't think there's much doubt that it's a gremlin in the EPG data stream that has plagued us a while ago.

General Discussions / New channels names not showing up on Widget
« on: February 29, 2016, 09:10:02 PM »
I know, I know, I'm one of those odd ball customers that still use the ICTV Yahoo Widget - I still find it the fastest way to quickly program and check up on my recordings.

For a while now, the new channels appear in the set-up Menu (under the i option), but the channel names do not appear on the TV Guide - just blanks where the names should be. As there are now so many new channels, it's getting a bit confusing. Any chance of fixing this issue?

IceTV EPG Content / TVS Sydney has been off the air since Dec 20th

We are still getting EPG data for a now non-existent TV Channel. From reading the article here
it is very unlikely they will come back on FTA - they are not even sure that they will come back as a streaming service.

IceTV EPG Content / Erroneous Timer Conflict Email messages
« on: November 29, 2015, 05:26:26 PM »
Just lately, the past few weeks, I keep on getting erroneous or false email Timer Conflict error messages for my Toppy No 1. Tonight I'm ONLY recording on SBS yet got the failure to set timer error message.

Is anyone experiencing this as well?

Hey John,

Tonight, Tuesday 24th Nov saw 3 programs as being Repeats when they I don't think they were. In addition to Catalyst on ABC 1, Insight and Dateline on SBS ONE were also marked as Repeats - missed recording them.

I've asked for this before, but can you set up a program/algorithm that automatically marks 1st showings as FIRST on the dates that these normally show? This should make is much less likely that you will incorrectly mark these as Repeats and will make for happier wives  :). I know that at this time of year, shows are often repeats of the best of the year's programs, or a collection of fragments of the best shows for the year, but I would not consider them repeats. Anyways, do whatever you must to keep FIRST and REPEATS accurately marked.

Catalyst tonight is marked as a Repeat - I think it's a new show - on Gluten.

There is a hole in the Program Guide at 7pm (blank line, no entry) for the ABC LCN2 and ABC LCN21 for the ABC News title. Oddly, ABC24 and ABC(22) are both OK.

This is a odd one (just one title and description for one time slot missing, and not on every channel for that service) and may possibly help ICETV in diagnosing what has lately been a frustrating number of issues with some PVRs. But, I'm fairly new to the T2, so it may just be a Beyonwiz issue.

IceTV EPG Content / Repeats not marker Sydney
« on: October 28, 2015, 04:01:48 PM »
In Sydney, Date Line on SBS is nearly always a Repeat when screened in the afternoon on Wednesday, i.e. the day following it being screened on Tuesday evening. Today's screening was not marked as a Repeat.

Maybe screenings of flagship programs like Date Line and Insight and the like can automatically be flagged by the system to be Repeats. This probably applies to nearly all shows on the 4 major channels that are aired between 6-111pm.

SKIPPA / Latest Skippa Manual and Firmware Links
« on: October 26, 2015, 10:06:02 PM »
I'm about to become a Johnny come lately Skippa owner.

As ICETV no longer host these files on their server, this is the place to go to.

No idea if there will be more updates for either manual or firmware, but at least we have the one stop shop/place for these files.

Thanks to Ian who seems to have religiously kept copies of these files.


IceTV EPG Content / Gruen XL NOT a repeat of Gruen
« on: October 25, 2015, 09:24:58 PM »
I've noticed that ABC1 has an extended version of Gruen on Thursday night at 8.30pm. This extended version is 45 min long, whereas the Gruen shown on Wednesday night is just 35 min long.

Currently the Thursday extended version Gruen XL is listed as a Repeat when it's not really a repeat.

IceTV EPG Content / Dateline SBS ONE Wed 28 3pm is a Repeat
« on: October 23, 2015, 07:00:53 PM »
Dateline SBS ONE Wed 28 3pm is a Repeat but not marked as such. I have a Timer set on my Toppy for this Repeat.
