IceTV EPG Content / At The Movies - ABC Sun Night is Repeat of Wed
« on: March 26, 2009, 10:14:49 PM »
Hi Guys,

Can you please update the guide to mark the sunday night running of At The Movies as a repeat. The first airing is on Wednesday night. In both cases I'm talking about ABC1 here - I believe there are further repeats on ABC2 as weel.

Thanks
Mick

Thanks for the reply Mitch... not sure if this is right, but I'm assuming some of the more popular HTPC software (in Oz anyway) is just using the title/subtitles to distinguish episodes as otherwise this problem would be more widely reported. Either that or everyone is forcing their recordings to a specific channel only. Anyway, I'm looking forward to hearing their thoughts on the issue. Cheers, Mick

Well I'm back here again and still with the same problem - would love a response from ICE TV and/or comments from others on this issue. What I'd like to know is why the same show, when shown on SD and HD channels has a different episode number?

For example my Media PC (SageTV) is currently happily recording the Brisbane Internation tennis in duplicate - once off Prime and once off Prime HD - when I look at the guide data, it's easy to see why:

Code: [Select]

<programme start="20090106003000 +0000" stop="20090106063000 +0000" channel="127">
<title lang="en">Tennis: Brisbane International</title>
<sub-title lang="en">2009 - Day Two</sub-title>
<desc lang="en">The Pat Rafter Arena hosts clashes between the best of the best; Ana Ivanovic meets Petra Kvitova, Fernando Verdasco takes on Bernard Tomic, am Stosur&apos;s original match with Maria Kirilenko has been rescheduled due to Kirilenko&apos;s illness and she will now play Agi Sugiyama. Other matches include Marcos Baghdati against Jarrko Nieminen, and then there&apos;s the Jelena Dokic, Amelie Mauresmo match which should be a humdinger. .</desc>

<title lang="en">Tennis: Brisbane International</title>

</programme>

In my opinion these shows are the same episode and therefore should have the same episode number. This allows the media center to schedule accordingly and choose only one instance to record.

Nope, my sincere appologies - the ICE Guide is correct - just tuned in to watch the F1, but it seems ten thinks south coast viewers would be more interested in their test loop.

IceTV EPG Content / Re: HD flag on SD services?
« on: July 06, 2008, 07:55:37 PM »
Guys you have to realise there are a lot of different PVRs / PVR software out there and they are almost universally going to assume that if a show is flagged as HD then it will be broadcast in HD format. Some of them will make assumptions based on this - eg I just discovered Sage will record a HD flagged episode of (the same) show in preference to an SD one (which is exactly what I want it to do).

Fair enough if people want these things on SD shows as a reminder but if you are going to do anything non-standard like that my view is it must be an option rather than forced on everyone. I'd like to see ICE address this ASAP.

Well after a quick poke around the Sage forums and a test on my own machine I've found out that if the airing is marked as "HD" then Sage will automatically record it in preference to the SD version (unless it cant due to a conflict). So it would seem the HD shows should have the same episode number - would like to know why it's not being done this way in the ice guide?
Thanks

IceTV EPG Content / HD episode numbers
« on: July 06, 2008, 06:11:19 PM »
Hi All,

I'm a SageTV user - normally just want SD TV but have started adding the odd HD channel... I was surprised to see in the guide that the same show had a different episode number on HD and SD which means Sage now wants to record both of them! I'm presuming if they had the same number then Sage would only record one and treat the other as a repeat, I'm not 100% sure how I'd get it to prefer the HD one over SD, but anyway.... just wondering if someone could fill me in with some more background behind the episode numbering

Thanks

It's there on the standard def SC10 and Sydney Ten HD has a (correct) entry for the 9:50pm showing but not SC 10 HD but I'm fairly sure it will be shown nationwide.
