Hi raymondjpg,

I can confirm that it is the first series of "Trust Me" that is airing and is new to Ausrtalian TV on SBS, with no information on series two at this stage.


Thanks for confirming Alison. Looking back at the SBS self-promotion there was a visual overlay advising "New Series" rather than a "A New Series of...", which would not necessarily imply a second series. I misinterpreted it as such.

I'm not sure what's going on with "Trust Me". Originally SBS was advertising a new series. Now it appears that they are showing Series 1, which according to IceTV has not been screened previously in Australia. At least it is not advertised as a repeat.

Series 2, from what I have read, does not feature Jodie Whittaker because of her involvement in Doctor Who. As far as I know that new series, based on a similar premise as series 1, but with a different cast, has yet to see the light of day.

Hi Raymond,

"Trust Me" will be starting on SBS, Thursday the 28 of February at 9.30 pm and should be showing up in the guide data. The 'Coming Soon List' only updates once per day, so the date will not appear until tomorrow. 


Thanks. It is showing up in the guide data now.

SBS is advertising a new series of Trust Me to start Thursday 28 February at 9.30 pm. This show is certainly flagged by IceTV as Coming Soon, but no start date given and it does not appear in the IceTV TV Guide. I can confirm that it is at least in the FTA EPG as advertised by SBS

The advantage I see in deleting timers at the PVR end is that you can be sure they have been deleted! Perhaps Daniel Hall has some view on this.
Having been trained on the Toppy 5K and TED, one was told never to delete stuff off the Toppy, always do it at the IceTV end, (lest one confused TED) so it is sort of ingrained in me never to made adjustment on the PVR end.  :)
If I'm wrong, happy to change  ;D

It's entirely up to you. All I can say is that I haven't had any timer that I deleted at the T2 end reappear because the server decided to re-send it. I can't speak for WMC, but Daniel doesn't appear to see any problem with deleting timers there either.

Thanks. My question is more is there any downside to deleting timers at the PVR end, as against deleting them at the IceTV server end?


 :) I think deleting at the PVR end is preferable, giving more confidence that the timer has been deleted.

Hi raymondjpg,

There is a specific set of circumstances that can occur at the moment where a particular episode of series can be marked as both 'scheduled manually' (meaning its been manually set to record, say a repeat in a series that is set for first runs only) and also 'canceled manually' (so its been manually cancelled, we keep this to ensure it doesn't get scheduled again by our server). So far we have only seen it happening with Beyonwiz T and U series units, but we don't have a specific set of steps to replicate it as yet.

I see a show that is scheduled to record and (for various reasons) I don't want it to record, so i cancel it on the IceTV website end.  What normally happens is that the timer on the Wiz gets deleted during the next sync.

Lately I have been deleting timers that I do not wish to record at the T2 end. It seems to work without any complaint at either the PVR or IceTV end, and I'm pretty sure that the timer then eventually disappears from the IceTV website end. I haven't thoroughly checked this, but my understanding is that an IceTV timer deleted at the PVR end is treated as a single episode timer, even if part of a series, and that future timers for that series would still set and not be affected by the deletion of a single episode.

I don't know about WMC, I haven't used it with IceTV for some time, but I would have thought the behaviour of IceTV set timers would be the same as for any other IceTV enabled device, where the deletion of a timer at the PVR end is interpreted by IceTV as the user no longer requiring that timer, and no need for it to be re-sent.

The advantage I see in deleting timers at the PVR end is that you can be sure they have been deleted! Perhaps Daniel Hall has some view on this.

Hi All

Don't reallt know what I am doing but have managed to find and install WMC on Windows 10, gets channels etc but will not record. The interactive gives me the error message you see below but I don't know what to do with it. any help really appreciated.

1/11/2019 9:58:53 PM   Warn   Exception System.NullReferenceException - Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

If you used one of the original WMC for Windows 10 installers (such as 8.8.1) you could try the updated version 8.8.2, see information posted at Translated link (English) :

The download link doesn't appear to work from the translated page but you should be able to get it from!nfIixSoC!dXgwWW9mg3DIe_CoIJMElusn6fFOD-5Pv-Xv5VIv7AU

I don't know if this updated version will solve your issue with recording, or IceTV, but I have it installed successfully as a platform for Emby for WMC in Windows 10 1809.

Hi raymondjpg,

The Advanced settings and Cancel buttons have been fixed on a couple of pages.

OK Thanks Daniel.

A small niggle. When trying to set a new recording from "Coming Soon" in Firefox 63 I found that the advanced options were not visible and the advanced options box was blank (empty). Fortunately clicking the advanced options box and the words advanced options became visible, and opened the advanced options.

Even smaller niggle, there is a lot of white in the new layout. Hurts my eyes!

IceTV EPG Content / Agatha Christie's Criminal Games
« on: November 12, 2018, 05:27:43 PM »
Fans of this series may be pleased to hear that SBS on Demand has posted another six episodes. I'm pretty sure that the first six were screened earlier this year after first appearing on SBS on Demand, so keyword favourites or recordings may pick up this next six some time.

TV Tonight could be interpreted as somewhat misleading when they report "Les petits meurtres díAgatha Christie originally aired in 2009 but continues in 2018". The first series goes back to then, but the SBS offerings (both the first six, and now this six) look to come from series 2, 2014-2015 vintage, so not so far back.

IceTV EPG Content / Re: 10 Boss scheduling of Moto GP and V8 Supercars
« on: November 04, 2018, 06:50:08 PM »
My posting is mainly to alert other IceTV users who may wish to set a manual timer for the Moto GP race, and review their timings for V8 Supercars.

All too late for me, but fortunately IceTV scheduling changed in time for my T2 to pick up the MotoGP about half way through the first lap, even with 10 minutes pre-padding, so not quite right. My EPGRefresh on a U4 was not in time to pick up the change. I saw yesterday that IceTV had posted a rescheduling but that was from a 4.30 pm start to 5.30 pm start of coverage. Obviously superseded.

BTW - I donít usually answer this way as itís impossible to manage so if you really need IceTV help you should post a support ticket ;)

OK. Noted. I thought maybe someone else may have had similar issues.
