General Discussions / Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year...
« on: December 21, 2006, 02:47:24 PM » everyone at Ice.  Just wanted to get in early and pass on our best wishes for the season.

Here's to Santa bringing you a nice "case dismissed" regarding Nein and hoping that 2007 will be a far more prosperous one for you all.

We'll be thinking of you as our Toppy happily records all those wonderful new Christmas specials... oh, alright... old repeats over the Christmas break, courtesey of Ice data and TED/S.

IceTV EPG Content / Heads Up - The Dead Zone... or not?

Good ol' incompetant Nein are doing it again!  After bringing back the The Dead Zone last week (the first of a two part) it appears to be off again this week... or perhaps it isn't!

According to Ice and yourtv, Monday @ 22:35 has two Frasier episodes, however one of the printed guides (The West) in Perth still shows The Dead Zone and TED/S has already set me a timer for it so it must have been there at some time this last week.

So it's anyone's guess if it will actually be on, probably not even Eddie can be sure!

Heads up - This series is back in Perth on Channel Nein at 22:35 according to yourtv.  Not currently showing in ice, showing as shipwrecked.

IceTV EPG Content / Inaccurate start time (early) for F1
« on: July 31, 2006, 02:00:03 PM »
Just to advise that the start time for the F1 GP on channel Ten in Perth last night should have been 23:30 and not 23:00.  Fortunately I had set plenty of end-padding for this one (via TED/S) so I missed nothing but the correct times were shown in the printed guides.  You might want to recheck your data sources for this one.

IceTV EPG Content / F1 - Ten are pathetic!

For the F1 fans out there who don't know, Ten (not IceTV) stuffed up big style last night.

Apparently, they were advised at ten past five on Friday that the broadcast would be an hour earlier than previously advised and they were contracted to show it live, so they did.  Those of you who have recorded according to the EPG have, like me, missed the first twenty laps.

Their total action regarding this piece of information was... to update their phone message information line!!!  Two whole days and they couldn't even send a single bl**dy e-mail to any of the electronic program guides.  Their excuse being that there was noone there to make the change - this is utterly pathetic!

So I would recommend that any pi**ed F1 fan who has missed the good bits of this race should contact Ten and have a rant at them.  Next, watch (some of) the recording, identify the advertisers and contact each of them too, telling them that you see little point in watching the GP (and therefore their adverts) if Ten can't get their act in gear about this sort of thing. 

I'm going to go further and say that I shall boycott their products until I receive a copy of a letter from them to Ten, asking Ten to lift their game, you may wish to consider this too.  This technique has been used in the U.K. in the past and works.

Surely Ten have people on call who could check this sort of thing and make the necessary notifications - and if not, why not?

Make your voice heard by Ten by hitting them where it hurts... in the advertising pocket.

Any idea why the guide should have resulted in my Toppy recording the F1 Grand Prix (Sun night/Mon morning) until only 02:15, when it was in the magazines until 03:30. I discovered last night that I missed the last 20 laps, bit of a bummer.
