IceTV EPG Content / Family Guy
« on: September 28, 2019, 10:58:16 PM »
On Wednesday, 02/10 the IceTV guide is showing 2 episodes back to back (9:00pm & 9:30pm) of Family Guy on 7mate, as is usual.
But they are both showing as the same episode name, "Movin' Out, Brians Song". Both repeats.
This must be an error? Or a 2 part episode?

IceTV EPG Content / Re: Shaun Micallef is Mad As Hell

I read this post and replies yesterday (out of boredom) and while at work last night I saw that Micallef himself had blasted the ABC for playing the wrong episode. A screw up on their side, their fault.
Put it to bed, let it rest. Better things must be worth complaining/posting about.

Thanks Gai, I love this show and don't like to miss any.
It went off air for some time, not sure why (Sandii is doing a good job), good it's back.

IceTV EPG Content / QI episode number
« on: May 04, 2019, 05:35:13 PM »
Last week the episode of QI was series 17 episode 8, this week it is showing as series 17 episode 10.
What happened to episode 9? An ABC thing or IceTV?

Thanks for the reply Daniel,
But I spoke too soon about the "Remove Episode" problem. As soon as I had posted  and went back to My Week the episode I had removed was showing again. I am not that fussed as I do my fetches manually and  I can just delete the schedule from my  EyeTV  list. But never had this problem before.
I'll just wait it out,... things usually just come good again I have found, ..don't how or why but I'm patient and have work arounds  to use in the meantime

General Discussions / Are Forums secure?
« on: June 23, 2017, 05:50:20 PM »
I usually check the forums on a daily basis, my browser has always warned that the connection is not secure,... check anyways, helpful things crop up.
Until this morning,..each time I clicked on the forums I got a "Bad Gateway" message. On both Fire-Fox and Safari. I thought they must be blocking because of  insecure  site warning. But I also ran into problems trying to remove unwanted episodes from "My Week".
They would go away, and  then reappear a few seconds later. 
Out of curiosity I tried the forums again just a while ago and could get back in. Also the remove episode function is working again.
Would this of been because of the server error posted earlier?

But I would also really like to know why the "Online Forums" connection is "Not Secure". I have used this for years and have always wondered why, I need to know.
Any reply appreciated. Thanks.

Hi Tiphanee,
I am in W.A., I notice that the episode title has changed now, "Jungles".
I just thought I would bring the wrong title to your attention to maybe help others.
I wasn't worried about missing the recording, I use "My Week" mainly as a guide and to monitor changes. Most of my schedules are done manually.
Editing of Shows/titles is a simple and quick process with my set-up.
Have a nice day.

The Planet Earth II episode titled "Mountains" was aired last week, you have this weeks episode also titled "Mountains"
I am sure the episode to air this week is "Jungles".

IceTV EPG Content / Pointless schedule
« on: February 10, 2017, 02:06:42 PM »
Just a mention, "Pointless" 6pm weeknights on ABC is always shown as 60 minutes long, then changed to 45  on the day of screening. I have only ever known this show to last 45 minutes.

Thanks for clearing that up Dave.
It is what I expected, and hoped to hear.
I'm behind you all the way, keep up the good work.

Archer 11,  Topfields need a complete reset to refresh data,..Or something like that. There is a message pertaining to that  under "my recorders".
I'm not sure about the newer Toppys but my old 2400hdt did reuire a complete reset and set up if a resend of schedules was requested.

I recall buying a Divico PVR through IceTV, it was a good machine for about 6 months. It had features that I wish others would adapt, but the manufacturers stopped firmware updates and eventually thier support site disappeard altogether.
Was this IceTV's fault? No. it was  the manufacturer proclaiming a product that they could not or would not support.
If I recall correctly, it was Altech, maybe wrong.
My advice is buy a well known brand,...
I salvaged the 1Tb HDD from that machine and ditched the box that contained it.
My point is I spent $ 600 dollars on that, it failed and I got over it...I will stick with Elgato tuners.
They work,..have superior options over a stand alone PVR, and I have 3 running giving me 6 simultaneous channels of recording, all playable through my large screen TV.

Well said Antman.
I can't understand all the people trying to kill this service before they have even given the new company a fair go.
You will have a week to assess the service for free , then decide if you want to subscribe.
Nobody is under any obligation to renew, the new company is under no obligation to refund or honour any subscriptions made by the old company.
The posters on this site all have used and enjoyed a hassle free way of remotely programming their PVR's for many years. There is NO OTHER service available in Australia that comes any where close to that supplied by IceTV, so suck up your loss, accept it and continue to support a great service or spend hours each day trying to keep those PVR's on schedule.

I got the email advising of "scheduled maintenance", took advice and did a fetch on both my Macs (Elgato EyeTV Diversity) last night.
This morning neither Mac could contact server. No problem, as I was advised it could take 48 hours for DNS to be applied. I am checking forums regularly now and just saw the post from Daniel.
So I went to both Macs and did an update on each successfully. All seems to be back to normal.
What I am really wanting to know is when should I re-enable auto renew on my subscription?
I disabled this when all this "voluntary administration' came to my attention.
I got an email on Wednesday alerting me that my subscription was about to expire, but was still sceptical as to whether the charge would be paid to the old or resurrected IceTV.
Should I wait until advised of new payment gateway up and running or enable now?
I have read the bit about having a week to decide whether I want to subscribe, but I already know that I do, and don't want to lose any of my saved schedules if my subscription expires.
And one thing I did notice over this week was that there were no time changes reflected in "My Week". usually I would expect 1 or 2 changes to the schedule but none were showing. I can understand if this is because of the transitional changes but hope that it is not indicative of how the service will be run from now on. After all, the best thing of this service is to keep devices up to date on recording schedules.

Happy Days.
 I spent most of Friday trying to set my EyeTV/Mac to automate recordings, what a headache.
I did find an online guide to use that would tell me of repeat screenings but to send that to my recorders would require a lot more time, know-how and patience than I have. XMLTV, automation and script- writing
I logged back into Ice today just out of curiosity and joy of joys, I saw a full weeks worth of schedules.
My other solution had missed a lot of schedules, particularly " Fargo".

So a big thank you to all that have made it possible for this service to survive, especially Dave, who has been the only one to ever aknowledge any of my  support mail in the past.
Keep up the good work, keep it as an interactive EPG service only and you will have my continued subscription.
