Smart Recording on Android / Re: Android app font is white on white!

Email from Colin agrees that an update to support Oreo is the likely culprit.  His CTO will investigate next week.

Smart Recording on Android / Android app font is white on white!
« on: October 27, 2018, 12:19:46 AM »
My font has always been black but suddenly, the font when I want to  record a new show it has become White. I should add, against a white background.

This makes adding or editing extremely difficult.  How do I restore it to black without losing my settings?

Hi Paul,

I was going to suggest that you hadn't taken a settings backup immediately prior to USB flashing your T3 and T4 with 20180417 in the wee hours of Wed Apr 18.  The timers get sent 6 days out, so they would've been sent the previous (Tues) evening. Your settings restore would've been from an older backup that didn't have the timers for Mon 23-Apr. A resend all timers from your IceTV account would've fixed that up.
That all sounded plausible to me - apart from the fact the timer wasn't set on your DP-P2 as well :)

Did your Ice account expire for a period?  I think the DP-series timers get sent 5 days out, so if your account expired for a few days before you renewed then that could also be a possibility.

Hi GG,

If it were only the t3 and T4 then I too would attribute it to having mucked around with firmware. But it doesn't explain why the P2 failed to receive timers for channel 7.

Your theory is probable for the T3 since it gets the least attention these days. Didn't really bother with the timers and it's backup was after the USB update (it was set up from scratch) so I can wear that one.

For the T4, I took a backup on 17/04 @ 12:16 pm. Just checked it though and it only contains timers to Sunday evening. So, if Monday's timers weren't sent until later on the 17th then that backup would not have contained them. Flashed the firmware on the 18th. Your point is that if IceTV thinks a timer has been sent and received, from there it only updates the timer but doesn't send it anew. So the lesson here is to backup immediately prior to reflashing a T/U series.

That leaves the P2 with no explanation. It did not record anything either, according to the other half. She said she had to manually enter the channel 7 timers. If it had been sent a timer for 7HD, it may have recorded the wrong show because of 7 converting 7HD to 7 Mate HD suddenly and without warning last night.

My subscription renews automatically on the 26th.

Cheers, P.

We have three different Beyonwiz devices set to record channel 7 shows Home and Away and My Kitchen Rules. These are a DP-P2, a T3 and a T4. Last night, none of these received timers for these two channel 7 shows, which nearly ruined our evenings viewing.

A check of the T4 log revealed no timer was sent to the T4. The shows both appear before and after Monday but not on Monday. So what went wrong Monday?

Fortunately, the other half manually entered a timer for MKR after it started. And we also record Home and Away on Foxtel too. This is because we find our paid IceTV service unreliable at key times and do not trust it. It is not at all encouraging that our money is well spent if primetime shows on the main channel we watch have to be recorded on independent devices or manually checked daily to have some prospect we will get to see them.

Also, later in the evening I note that 7HD has suddenly become 7 Mate HD. The guide was listing 7 HD programs but what was playing was 7 Mate shows. This does not explain the failure to send timers though; our setting is prefer high def but the shows were available in SD too.

IceTV EPG Content / Blue Bloods recording times an hour out
« on: February 16, 2018, 10:37:53 PM »
The 2017/18 series of Blue Bloods is not being recorded on our Beyonwizs because the IceTV timers are an hour too early. Doesn't IceTV update for timeslot changes?

Beyonwiz / Re: T4 missing Ten HD guide info 5pm to midnight.

Just been in an exchange with PRL on the wiz forum. He agrees that it's likely to be that bug.

Yes, the timer is still present so hopefully it will be resolved by a plug-in update.

Thanks, Paul

Beyonwiz / T4 missing Ten HD guide info 5pm to midnight.
« on: October 15, 2017, 03:44:14 PM »
My T3 and P2 are normal as is the web app but the T4 is missing the guide info for only Ten HD tonight.

Tried resending all timers but no change. Log simply says epg update ok. Rebooted the T4 but no change. Guide is empty 5 to12pm. Timer for Bull is present though so only the guide is missing.

Switching to FTA the problem is not present but reappears when I switch back to IceTV.

Any clue how to fix this problem?

Fixed following advice from Beyonwiz forum members. Thanks MrQuade.  ;D

Beyonwiz / Can't login to IceTV - new T4
« on: November 16, 2016, 04:18:16 PM »
The new T4 arrived but I can't get it to login.

I had 5 devices so under my account I deleted one - the Windows Media Centre PC in My Recorders. Added the T4. On the PC I uninstalled the WMC software. On the T4 I installed the plugin and entered the login details but immediate fail - too many devices - five is the maximum. Rebooting, reinstalling the plugin have no effect.

Tried leaving a support request over 24 hours ago but it has got no response. I have set up autotimers instead as a stop gap measure. But, if I pay for a service I generally like but now can't use - well to say I am frustrated is an understatement. >:(

Does anyone know what else I need to do to get it to work please?

SKIPPA / Re: Are Ice Tv Servers Down?
« on: June 23, 2016, 03:12:16 PM »
I have had this since after midnight on 23/6/15. Win 7 MCE interactive not authorised. Now getting not authorized on the DP-S1 and the DP-P2. The T3 is OK. Definitely at the IceTV end. Reloading the userid/password has no effect.

Also, have not received any acknowledgement of the support ticket request lodged through the Win 7 app. Suspect that it's completely broken.

Not at all.

Thanks Simon. Happy to oblige.

It hadn't registered with me that 9HD GEM thing was because I hadn't cleared and re scanned. I'll go back to the Beyonwiz forum and report back there - probably tomorrow.

And on the plugin, IMHO IceTV should be paying you guys for the work you do making their business possible! ☺

Good to know the gaps are getting attention.

If the fix requires changes to the plugin can you also address the GEM-9HD bug too? It appears the plugin requires an update to correctly handle the timers for 9HD where it now exists.

These two bugs are spoiling the IceTV experience.

Like csutak40, I have had no success with disable - enable.

Thanks all. So it is an IceTV problem afterall!

Today's special is ABC NEWS 24. No data on that channel.

Thanks Simon,
Tried your suggestion but it's still the same. All bar Ch7 are populated as normal.  Only Ch7 starts from midnight. I suspect that my T3 registration with IceTV is corrupt because the phone app will only let me record on the T3 if I  program it first then add one of the other PVRs as the backup. Whether this is related or not I have no idea.

It is not a big deal today but SHMBO is looking for an excuse to dump IceTV. Glitches like this don't help the cause.
