IceTV EPG Content / Re: Lost
« on: February 20, 2010, 12:32:38 AM »
LOST is not keyword recording properly ... I have had to make two series recordings to pick up all episodes.

And yes: any channel, any time, New and Rerun.

It is as though there is an abberant character in some of the listings.

Windows Vista Media Center / Win7 Install 64bit -- Thumbs Up!!
« on: January 16, 2010, 07:33:20 PM »
Just a note to say what a massive improvement the Win7 client is over the old Vista One.

I have just converted a Vista32 box to Win7 64bit ... with IceTv.

Absolutely no problems with the setup, found all the channels (without having to rename any!)

So far - rock solid.

Win7 and IceTV works brilliantly for me.

For those that have a Linksys media centre extender - this is working pretty well - with the exception of a pause in the sound on skipping forward.

Well done with the client ... it seems to have arrived.

Windows Vista Media Center / Re: Updating Channel 10

Thanks Daniel,

That has (sort of) fixed it.  Although still required several attempts to match the guide listings successfully.
One thing I note, is that if a listing has matched with more than one LCN that seems to confuse VMC - and sometimes no listings are displayed for on of the channels, even if the other is disabled.

Also - you have to use Task Manager to show processes for all users, and Kill all Media Centre Processes to clear the EPG directory.

Any chance IceTV could set this directory and the channel xml listing automatically?

Yes - I've just deleted all channels,
Re-setup Guide
Manually Edited Channels (Grrrrrrrrr...)

Strangest thing - everythime I rename LCN7 to Seven, 70 changes.

Whenever I edit LCN70 to Seven HD ---> then 7 changes as well.

I can't name them separately -- when I rename both to their respective names, that doesn't fix things either.

Is this a Vista Media Centre Bug.

If so ... where does VMC store the channel names -- I'll have a go at it myself.

Anyone in support reading this thread??

Windows Vista Media Center / Updating Channel 10
« on: February 18, 2009, 12:04:38 AM »
I have been running Vista MCE and Ice for some time now ... with only a few problems.

I recently decided to Re-scan channels following the email from Ice about Ten and ONE.

The problem I now have is that Seven and ONE listings do not work properly.

First frustration:
If there is no info in ICE for a channel for that week, it doesn't appear in the Vista MCE guide listing at ALL (eg ABC HDTV) - so you have to type them yourself - and hope that it will work when a program is scheduled -- makes it hard to test that things are set up.

I followed this procedure:

1. Deleted all channels and Rescanned
2. Added Guide Listings for LCNs as per the email I received.

(result: no ONE or Seven listings)


Redid Setup guide, resetting DiscSv key via the IceTV Interactive Client
This included re-setting up channels. Added guide listings manually

ONE Digital was listed on the channel list but not "ONE" - as it is worded in IceTv
"Seven" was not listed on the guide - only "7 Digital"

I entered each of these - as they appear in my icetv iPhone channel listing:  No guide listing for either appeared.

Rebooted, cleared IceTV interactive cache - now even more oddly,  Seven programs are correctly listed against 7, but the channel label says "Ten"

"ONE" LCN 12 - has no programs, but ONE HD is listed fine.

This is completely frustrating

Could Ice give some thought to a program to set up VMC channels automatically to the IceTV account in use.

In the meantime - what on earth do I do to solve this, and will I have to go through this everytime a channel changes its LCN?

Please help.

The 7pm Bulletin title for Melbourne is STILL listed as ABC News:Late Edition.

Just checked having DLed the guide again on my Vista Media Centre and on my iPhone too.

Can this please be fixed?

BTW - I support the renaming of the 5 minute late bulletin.  But not my 7pm News!!


Firstly, may I say that the "support" on the Support forum is decidedly silent on this particular thread....

I have been working through this (basically by reinstalling everything), and re-setting up the channels etc.
I can now get IWatchThis to queue shows on my Media Centre (although this seems to have happened in the last day or so, somewhat spontaneously)

The IceTV interactive client STILL logs errors saying that it can't find a corresponding channel for ABC2 Digital (22).

The guide listings are matched to 22 and appear as normal in Media Centre .... so what is wrong??

If it is a systemic problem ... please let me know so I can stop wasting time on this end.

Just to add to the confusion,

the Shows queued locally now seem to get added to the Interactive Website, but not the other way round.

ie the shows I queue from the Website stay queued, but don't go onto the VMC.


Windows Vista Media Center / Can't Sync VMC with IceRemote Server
« on: May 03, 2008, 06:36:01 PM »
I cannot find the solution to this ....

My Vista Media Centre will no longer sync with IWatchThis / Remote

I have

Re-setup Guide Listings, New Channel Search
Re - assigned the Guide Listings to the Channels in VMC
Stopped IceInteractive Client, Cleared "Tasks" Cache Folder, Rebooted, Restarted Client
Upgraded to the 2.00.18 beta client (was happening with  ....17 version already)

Test Connection to Server OK
Guide Update OK

The error log lists a number of errors, in particular unable to match ABC Digital 2 (22) to VMC guide - which is perplexing b/c the channel is assigned to the ICE guide listing and is channel 22.

I am in Melbourne, and for some reason "ABC HDTV" is listed as simply "ABC" this week.

I have a copy of the log file, and would be happy to PM my account details.

Any other ideas??!!

Strange - I'm having a similar problem getting it to work.

Has anyone had success with
AES crypto

and ten characters?  (I note the posts above seem to have used WPA and TKIP)

Can't wait.  Sure you're ok for beta testers?  ;D

IceTV EPG Content / SBS HD Listing
« on: December 23, 2007, 11:26:21 AM »
I'm Using Vista MCE, and the Melbourne Guide.

Whilst I understand the lack of data for the HD channels and appreciate the difficulties involved,  SBS HD does not appear to have an entry, let alone any guide data.

OK, SBS doesn't have much in the way of HD specific content.  Is it simply that there is no entry for the week - so no guide listing for the channel - or am I missing something.

This makes associating the guide listings with the channels in Vista MCE a little more difficult

Just to confirm ... "My Guide" on I watch this now loads much better.

Thanks for looking into the <!> issue.

IceGuide Remote / PIMP is a great feature by the way!

Smart Recording website and General questions / "Recording Failed"
« on: November 26, 2007, 01:29:15 AM »
Just a query about the rather cryptic <!> symbol

and "Recording of this device failed" which appears on "My Guide" for programs which haven't aired yet - and in most cases have no conflict or problems.

The wording of this message could be better - but more than that, it doesn't seem to even point to a problem scheduling recordings.  What exactly is it telling me?  I'm using Vista MCE.

Also - just as an aside, any idea why my Laptop fan revs up and IE7 pauses under Vista when viewing My Guide on IWatchThis ?  What exactly is the webpage asking my laptop to do?!!  It's a T7500 dual core, but this page makes IE7 lock up for about 30 seconds! No other pages do this.  Just wondering .....
