IceTV EPG Content / Endeavour
« on: May 14, 2018, 09:15:28 AM »
The episode of Endeavour airing next Saturday is marked as a repeat but this is season 4 and I don’t believe it has been shown yet in Australia. I could be wrong.

I too got caught out by the 7 Network last night and had set 7 News and Home & Away to record on 7HD.  When I played them back, found that I had recorded 7Mate.  Couldn't make out what had gone wrong and checked the broadcasts on my Fetch and the TV's own FTA and the same, 7Mate was showing on all despite the channel showing as 7HD.  As I have been having some problems with the new TV, went out to the sleepout which has its own aerial and the same there as well.  I emailed Channel 7 and this is the reply I got;

"Channel 7’s HD channel has switched to 7mate today to ensure we show tonight’s AFL match between Melbourne and Richmond in HD. It will switch back to a HD broadcast of our regular 7 channel at midnight tonight.
7 Digital Support Team"

Typical arrogant 7 reply with no apology for any inconvenience (have had similar replies from them in the past).  I now remember that part of the deal of 7 showing AFL was that all transmissions were to be in HD, but why couldn't they reschedule the normal programs the same as they do when there is Thursday night footy?

IceTV should have picked this up though as the Fetch guide, the day before had no listing for 7HD on Tuesday night but thought at the time they were waiting for details from 7 as they are quite often late in releasing their schedules.

Is Prime Suspect 1973 a new show?  I was under the impression that it is but in the guide it is listed as repeats and almost missed last night's episode as I had it set for first runs only.

Yes, it is providing you are talking about being a repeat of the show on Tuesday night that is not shown in the Ice EPG for Adelaide (shown in Freeview).  Episode 3 of Before We Die is also still not shown in the Adelaide EPG.

You're not alone,MD!  Might want to check out next Thursday's episode which, although listed as #4, is marked as a repeat.  With the number of mistakes over the last few months for which I am not blaming IceTV as you can only go by the info supplied to you, makes you wonder if the networks are doing this deliberately to discredit the company?? I am like a lot of people nowadays where most of my viewing is FTA but very rarely watch it live so that I can skip all the ads which must annoy the networks.

Another program to check is 'Before We Die' (SBS) lists episode 4 on Wednesday at 12.15am but not 3 episode which precedes it.  In the Freeview guide,episode 3 is scheduled for 10.30pm on Tuesday and 4 at 11.45 the same day.  With all the advertising for Freeview, guess they make sure their guide is correct.

Tonight's episode of Keeping Australia Safe was listed as episode 1 and a repeat in the Adelaide guide but was in fact episode 3 which was new.  Luckily I checked the Freeview guide (which listed it correctly) as I thought it was a mistake and set it to record manually.

I'm in Adelaide and your guide for this region showed Manhunt at 7.30 and Highway Patrol at 8.30 so what I got was the end of the second episode of Highway Patrol (a repeat) and Manhunt.  Last week I missed Border Security and The Force as they were incorrectly labeled as repeats.

Once again you have managed to stuff up tonight's recording of Highway Patrol setting it to record at 8.30 instead of 7.30.  All other program guides appeared to have it correct.  This is the second Channel 7  stuff up in a week and not the first with Highway Patrol.

This mistake wouldn't be so bad apart from the fact that The Force is one of the few programs that is not available on Catch-up TV.  If it is unclear if a program is a repeat or not, surely it is better to err on the side of caution and mark it as a new episode.  Is there any way on your system to flag this episode when it eventually is shown again in the future as a new episode?

Both Border Security & The Force tonight were new episodes and they weren't flag as such on my recordings for today.

Last night's Highway Patrol was marked as a repeat but was the same as the last few weeks where the first part was a new episode and the second a repeat.  The previous weeks were shown as new episodes and I know that this is a tricky one but think it safer to advertise as new.

Don't know what's going on but the only thing showing in my Ice timers for yesterday night was 'Britain's Busiest Airport, Heathrow', but when I played it this evening, what I got was part of 'Captain Phillips' which was showing on my iPhone app.  Naturally I thought that 'Britain's Busiest Airport, Heathrow' was cancelled and replaced by the movie but when I checked Plus 7 I found that the program was indeed broadcast last night and watched it as catch-up

I also have a strange one which only shows up on 'My Week' on my iPhone app and not on the timer list on my Beyonwiz T2.  It shows I have set 'Captain Phillips' to record on Sunday night.  I have not set this recording and it is not in 'My Series' list either.  I did record this movie when it was last on probably a good 12 months ago but would obviously only have set it for a one-off.  The other strange thing is that it there is nothing in the menu that allows me to cancel this recording, something I have never struck before.  I have reset the app but it still comes up.  Anyone encountered anything like this before?

The Mighty Planes episode 'Super Guppy' was scheduled as a first run on Saturday but was cancelled for some reason.  It is scheduled to be repeated on Wednesday and it is shown as a repeat but should now be billed as a first run.  Anyone, such as myself, will miss it if they have the series set for 'first runs only'.
