Beyonwiz / Broken Scheduling
« on: July 16, 2015, 09:17:31 AM »


I seem to have broken all my managed shows against my beyonwiz PVR

Shows are either not showing up in My Week or showing as "will not record"
If I try to record the specific episode I get the error "invalid device id: 0 and no default available"

I can fix them by deleting and re-adding the series, but after a few I'm not sure where I'm upto and hope there is an easier way to reset/reload/ etc

And I'm not 100% sure if I only fixed it for this week or properly

PS I just found out it is no longer seeing all tuners, only 2, hence the failed recordings, and difficulty reshecduling everything.

Missing Episode name in webget XML

"2015-07-11 13:30"   "2015-07-11 14:40"   "T"   "Real Humans"      "2012"   "Sweden"   "SBS 2"   "M"   "Drama"   "20121201"         "This Swedish sci-fi drama series is set in a parallel present day in which robots have become so human it is barely possible to distinguish them from real people. This new generation of 'hubots' were initially created to be mechanised servants and labourers. However, as an ever growing number of people begin to form intimate relationships with hubots, the boundaries between human and machine become blurred.(Sweden, Swedish, English Subtitles)"

Earlier Episode did have Episode name "Blood Runs Thick"
"2015-07-11 12:20"   "2015-07-11 13:30"   "S"   "Real Humans"   "Blood Runs Thick"   "2012"   "Sweden"   "SBS 2"   "MA"   "Sci-Fi"   "20140715"         "A virus is spreading like a pandemic, making infected hubots uncontrollable and dangerous. Bea is reactivated after several months, and she resumes her desperate search for David's lost code. (Sweden, Swedish, English Subtitles)"

Beyonwiz / Missing EPG data WMC vs Beyonwiz
« on: June 26, 2015, 01:15:14 PM »

I have just moved from windows media centre to a beyonwiz box. (So I could upgrade to Windows 10 across the board, loosing WMC in the process)

While the WMC EPG had a heap of extra information, first release year, actors and directors, can't remove movie from the title, repeat flag, etc
The beyonwiz EPG is disappointingly underwhelming.

A quick search of the beyonwiz forum and it is clear they feel the ball is squarely in ICETV's court to correct.

I might be wrong but both WMC and beyonwiz use EIT (Event Information Table) as the EPG data (converted/mapped from the xml supplied by ICETV)

I suspect the WMC ICETV interactive can convert the xml to the correct EIT mapping however beyonwiz standard expects the xml to already be in a standard format.

This missing information has broken the previous process I was able to do with the WMC recordings. e.g. looking up additional posters information.
and as a result ICETV's EPG value has dropped considerably.

Assuming ICETV ran into the same issues of mapping with their new Skippa, I'm hoping beyonwiz users will no longer be short changed soon?

SKIPPA / Skippa to Synology NAS to Plex
« on: May 27, 2015, 12:58:50 PM »
My current setup is Windows Media Centre (Intel I5, GTX960, Hauppauge 22XX x 2, Plex Media Server, etc)  to Synology NAS to Plex
This takes some file conversion, getting Movie/Series info from MovieDB/TVDB, file renaming and moving to the NAS.

Hoping to replace the WMC PVR part (and avoid some of the conversion, internet lookup steps) with 1 or 2 Skippas

I can't answer this question myself with the current information provided  :'(


Answers to any or all of the following questions would be a big help.
What format/container do the recordings get written as?
What will the filename be?
How much of the Guide metadata is included in the file.
Is the hard drive sharable?
If I purchase 2 Skippas will Smart recording treat them as 1 and assign recordings to the main one first and then the other if conflicted?

These all have to do with
1 increasing the tuner count, I'm not convinced 3 will be enough as I have 4 now and still have conflicts on some days.
2 automating conversion (hopefully not required),  metadata lookup and renaming the file for Plex recognition and finally moving to my NAS

Movie Title (Year)
Series Name - s01e01 - Episode Name

Windows Vista Media Center / New user: best practice methods?
« on: March 14, 2009, 10:16:43 AM »
Looking for the best approach to using IceTV with my media centre.

Vista Media Centre
Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-2200 (dual tuner)
IceTV padding 5 mins before 10 mins after.
CRT TV  :(

After a long session trying to get the CRT set up I was finally up and running.

Excitedly I went through the whole 7 days EPG setting series after series to record and a few movies here and there

As I went along I could see a few conflicts popping up (stupid need to pad programs, bah limited to 2 tuners :( )

A day or 2 of recording and all seems to be going well (very happy with the hauppauge so far)

Unfortunatly there is no way to see a list of recordings coming up withn VMC (that I could find) so I decided to go have a look at IceTV interactive website.

Although "My upcoming shows" was just what I was looking for; all the series recordings were shown as 1 off recordings with no series recording options available.
For the life of me I couldn't find the series recording options that I read were available :(

In desperation I cancelled most of the recordings and tried keyword search/record.
The advantage of the "prefer HD" option seemed to be just the ticket but...
The thought of adding all the keywords was a bit of a turn off.

Accidentally I came accross the series recording options (because the single recodings were cancelled) but there was no prefer HD option :(
This would be my preffered method (its consistent with VMC) but the missing HD option is just a deal breaker :(

On a side note the listings were not showing conflicts (even though IceTV knows how many tuners I have and the padding settings?) does it need to wait for VME to report the conflicts?

So after all that I need to come up with a best practice strategy to get the most out of IceTV/VCM/Tuners.

1. Should I only use 1 of either VCM or IceTV website
i.e. VCM for scheduling, IceTV for viewing info only
or just use IceTV website for everything?

2. Depending on answer to 1
Keyword record only
or series record all channels and remove duplicates (SD) manually daily

3. Back to Back programs like simpsons, two and a half men, red dwarf etc are going to be a real pain I believe with padding and only 2 tuners
How best to handle them?

4. Has anyone successfully installed  2 x Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-2200 (dual tuner) which would eliminate most of my conflict woes
