Purged all data and removed app
Rolled back to 2.21  : still bad "My Series" keywords and no keywords working in My Week
Tried 1.36 and working ok again. Keywords back and filtering the My Week data correctly.

Someone implemented it in the app.

Not sure if you are trying to be funny, but I've been using these Manage Series Keywords for years. They've always stayed in sync between the Android App and the Browser (server). And they've always worked.

Now, over the last few weeks, they've:

- gone out of sync and many 'random' ones have appeared in the Android App. 
- ALL the keyword ones have stopped working in the App, their results do not appear in My Week on the phone.
- I can't remove the 'random' ones in the App.

Is that a bit clearer now?

Thanks to you both. Yes they are keywords and I'm not too fussed about their icons. Just wondering why they suddenly appeared and how I get rid of them?. I added a new Series Recording on the phone app and it appears in the Web version, so that syncing seems okay. You can see that, plus the correct keywords in the website screen shot attached.

Hi Daniel,

Been a while, hope you are enjoying life!

Thanks, but it's not that. It's the Manage Series on the app. It has what looks like junk entries everywhere (see attachment). The 'real' Manage Series values - on the website - are about 11 in total. The App ones may be artefacts, but they have appeared only since the recent round of app updates.

By artefact, I mean they could be old records in the server-side DB that are somehow syncing to the Mobile, but not being shown on the Browser view. I vaguely recall a similar problem years ago.

I've just Reset the app again. It downloaded a fresh data set. I disabled both the Recommended and New Series options.

Sadly it seems to be getting worse:

- The 'wrong' Manage Series values are still there. I still can't actually 'manage' (remove)  the wrong ones (e.g. science children) as it goes back to the main menu when I select it. BTW I have never set that keyword set up

- My Week has only 2 entries in it; the same film in SD and HD. There's somewhat more on the web version.

Thank you

Smart Recording on Android / Recent app updates - Manage Series issues
« on: March 04, 2020, 06:05:09 PM »
Hello. Am on 2.27. For the last few app updates (maybe 2 weeks) my Manage Series has been unstable and unusable. Two main things:

* There seems to be about 40 entries. The website (same account) has 11 and is the correct one. So My Week has a lot of invalid entries on the phone.

* I can't remove some (most?) of  the Manage Series entries on the phone. Selecting an entry just returns to the 9-icon main screen with no error msg.

I have deleted the apps data and cache, then re-installed. I've Reset the App on the phone.  But this just keeps on happening.

It's a Pixel XL first gen. Android up to date.  Is there a log I can send you on the phone or a way to put debug mode on your app? Thanks.

Aha, thank you Daniel. I can confirm it's now working on the web site and the Android app.

Hello hello. Yes it's been ages. Thanks for this, but I can't get it to work on the free account.
I have added a Keyword Favourite with  genre:War genre:Movie
There's a War Movie on 2:00pm  Sunday 16th Sept on 9GEM called  Ice Cold In Alex (1958). It has tags of Movie and War.

But it doesn't show up in My Week on the website or on the phone.   Can you please check? Have I got the Keywords wrong ? - I used the Wizard to build it.


Been a while :-). Was this ever fixed? Can you use this with the free service? Thanks.

Ok, I've tried a myriad of ways to get a Keyword Favourite to stick and it wont. That is Preferences Based On Selection-Terms of 'war' and 'genre:war' show 'hits' during the Preview step of the Wizard (to create them) but NOTHING in My Week. Can IceTV please confirm this is broken or that I'm doing something wrong? Thanks.

I have a Favourite of 'genre:sci-fi', but nothing is coming up in My Week, even though - for example - The Host is listed in the IceTV TV Guide tab as being on Sunday at 8:30 and tagged as "sci-fi".  In fact no genre: values are working, but Series Related Preferences (i.e. program names) are. Ta.

Can I just add my sincere thanks to you and your colleagues there. I really appreciate your efforts and want to wish you all the best with your future endeavours.

I'd love to have an option on the My Week screen (and TV Guide) to quickly show just my Scheduled Recordings.  AFAIK it wouldn't need another data download as the info is already on the Phone. I got the idea from the excellent SeriesGuide app, which lets you filter down such a 'big' view using selected criteria.  Basically just a drop down menu with radio button selectors. Thanks.

Just wondering if anyone else has seen this?  Happened to me a few times. On my SIII, I've accidentally touched the IceTV icon and the app has tried to start, but as I've got no network (3G or WiFi) it can't connect. However - when I do activate a network connection the app seems to 'forget' my User and Password and makes me log in again. Grrr.  I think it does the same after an IceTV app update too.

Just closing this out. The "do nothing" approach worked just fine. Got home, after a week away, and - as predicted - the PVR
's clock was an hour out (i.e. still on DST) but all the timers had fired correctly and recorded just fine. I had not changed the padding.  Followed the usual process to change the time and all (still) working ok. Thanks again.

Hey everyone.  Thanks very much for this, excellent stuff.

I should point out the PVR will not have net access when I'm away, so NTP won't work and the PVR's clock won't change. 

In fact it seems prl's "do nothing" may just work, with one proviso. I just looked at the Timers; without me doing anything, Offsiders (ABC1 10am Sunday) is set on my BW to now be 11am Sunday. I'd tip due to the raw timer data - as has been said - being in UTC.

If I don't change the PVR's time at all, won't my "11am" timer fire at 11am PVR time, which is now 10am 'real' time, which is when the show goes to air?

The proviso is once I turn the BW and my LAN off (soon!) no more new timers will flow in. Not too fussed about this as the key ones are in there already.

Have I got that right?
