Hey all. Got a Beyonwiz DP-P2 with IceTV.

For the first time, I'll be away on that first Sunday in April.  I'll leave on the Sat morning before that Sunday and be gone about a week.
Time on P2 is updated using a time server with manual UTC offset. 

Can anyone think of a set up I can use where my timers will fire correctly (even 'clever' ones like pad by an extra hour?)? Thanks!

I had two Series recordings set up for 8:30 Wed.  Via the New Shows page I accidentally set a 3rd timer for that slot (dual tuner PVR).

Later on I checked and it seems that the system had accepted the New Show timer but marked the existing Series (Puberty Blues) as being in error. Yellow exclamation mark.

I cancelled the New Show timer but nothing would let me 'reset' Puberty Blues.  I had to cancel that instance and manually set it as a one off recording.

The show was days away from when I was doing this.

Thanks. I actually didn't have any other times around that time at all last night, so something else went wrong. Can you confirm the 2nd issue; the show apparently not appearing in next weeks guide, despite Ch Ten saying it is on?  My Ice Guide is showing a Rugby League show, as I said earlier. That's what makes me thinks this is a NSW or QLD guide I'm seeing.

Update: BTG now showing next Thurs and the Rugby show gone. I should have taken  a screen shot! Did you guys change this or did Ch 10 provided updated data?

I have this as a fave to record, but it didn't record last night (26/7). Was it in your guide data?

Just checked their web site and it's due back next week ("Next on: BEFORE THE GAME 2 AUGUST (NC) 8:30 PM-9:30 PM" -  but doesn't seem to be in IceTV.  Showing Modern Family and Rugby (!).  My region is set to Melbourne, is this really Melbourne data?

Howdy.  The 2 musical guests are (hopefully) a surprise each week. You guys list them and they then appear in the My Week listing. Any chance of either moving then further down in the description (so they don't appear in MW) or even removing them?  I'd appreciate it!
Thank you

I think it's a new ep.  Melbourne ABC1  8pm on Thurs 29/3. 


FYI, the community channels are a tricky one because their guide data doesn't indicate repeats. However, we're happy to repeat flag something if we have info from customers that a certain showing is always a repeat. For example, if you're sure that Guitar Gods is only new on Monday night then we can repeat flag the other showings throughout the week for you.


Thanks for this.  I think my original request(s) would make this a bit easier - let us have the option to record a given show only once per week, day or time-range.  Any consideration being given to that extra function?   

Wouldn't be that difficult to implement as you have the data already.

Good idea. I - later on - asked for something that is so similar we may as well merge them. Mine is here

Mine was mainly a request for once-per-week of a given series, but I also suggested a given time-range or (like you) a given week day.

Any way to have a given show (part of series recording) to only be recorded once a week?  Reason is that Ch 31 may repeat the same episode 3 or 4 times per week. I'd say, due to budget, they don't provide episode descriptions for all series, such as "All 4 Adventure". 

From what I see the start time may vary, so I really can't use that to lock it down to once per week.

Or maybe allow only on a given WEEKDAY or in a given TIME-RANGE?

Is it actually a repeat?

Ch 10 at 6:30pm. Melb.  Marked as a repeat. No idea why. Luckily I did a double check...


IceTV EPG Content / At the Movies (11 Sept. 7pm. ABC2) is a Repeat

Melb. But not flagged

Again, may have been covered before, but thinking about other Feature Request like this - - it would be cool to move what really is the 'type' (Movie, Documentary, Mini Series, Short Film...) out of the Genre tag...and leave Genre for things like Comedy, Western, Historical.   

So create a new metadata value of Type or whatever you want to call it.

Medium priority

May have been suggested before, but would be cool to have this. Things would stand out more. Maybe initially system-provided colours (Movie = blue for everyone) but later on move to user-choice. 

Because of the way IceTV uses one 'level' of Genre I can see some possible issues. Hopefully, in the future, they'll redo the data model and split out the 'type' (Movie, Documentary, Series) from the 'genre'  (History, Comedy, Western). In fact I'll add that as my 3rd suggestion in a minute!

If they do that, then the Type can be an icon and the Genre a colour.

Priority = medium
