IceTV EPG Content / ABC2 guide not showing on Topfield.
« on: February 12, 2008, 12:06:12 PM »
Is this change happening the same way Australia wide? I got the email from IceTV about the ABC channel changes and did a new channel scan on my Topfield. It does now show ABC1 & ABC2, but ABC2 is still on 21 (not 22 as was stated in the email). I can't get any guide for ABC2 in JustEPG (but did in the IceTV EPG after mapping ABC2 manually in its tap).

After changing the JustEPG.ini file to make the LCN for ABC2 to be 22 it does show in JustEPG but with (LCN 22) after the name of the channel in the guide (which I'd rather not have).

I don't know if this an IceTV or JustEPG issue. I also posted this in the Topfield forum.

I use IceTV, a Topfield Masterpiece, JustEPG, PBK. I'm in Northern Tasmania.

If you don't have that facility (the connection from TV card to motherboard) the next best thing is waking from Hibernation (which may work where a full startup doesn't). Check that the devices you need are working though (on mine the wireless network doesn't connect, but I don't need that to record tv).

I'm in rural Tasmania, but I'm not sure if that is relevant to this topic.

I had recorded a lot of movies (mostly on WIN & SCT) that were supposedly in high definition (that is they were in the ICE guide HD channels), but when reviewing them found they were just the HD loop stuff. I don't have the 'Copy SD shows to HD channels' option on. This is annoying as they are on SD and I could have recorded that.

The same thing happened with The Sopranos last night (which usually is on HD).

Just reloaded at 2:40pm. All is correct (except the ABC free EPG). Thanks.

I've just downloaded and reloaded the ICE guide (on a Topfield).  Here's what's happening now (5:20pm)

ABC - The ICE guide seems correct now (the free to air EPG is out an hour - not too fussed about that).

ABC2 - The ICE guide is incorrect (but the free to air EPG is correct!).

SBS - both the ICE and free EPG are correct.

I'm guessing I was using an ICE guide from a few days ago in my original post.

Would it be possible to make sure now that the guide (or rather the guide making process) is correct when DST finishes in Tas next March (although I think that's when the other states come into sync with Tas for DST).

Do we have to go through this EVERY year? Tasmania started DST today and the tv guide is all over the place until the mainland catch up to us. At the moment it looks like SBS, ABC and ABC 2 guides are still on winter time.

Can this be sorted out - and hopefully not happen again? If it's not ICE's fault perhaps you could go back through the supply chain and get it sorted?

What is the current state of 64 bit support? Is it working now without having to resort to registry tricks?

I use the JustEPG tap (on a Topfield) instead of the IceTV guide (which is really bad at showing all channels - in fact can't). The Tas times in JustEPG are an hour out and I can't work out why.

Bingo - he's done it. I've got the Ice EPG onto my Mac with this, but have not yet put it on the Topfield (because I'd done it with a Windows machine).
