Hi all,

I've just set up my TV guide on Emby Premiere and using a Hauppauge HVR2200 TV tuner on my Windows 10 PC. Everything works okay, but the logos for a couple of channels in the guide are wrong.
Ten's channel ONE, which is mapped to 12, shows the channel 7 logo.
Ten's channel TEN HD, which is mapped to 13, shows the channel 9 logo.
These are Brisbane channels.
I'm not worried about the one on channel 12, as I can delete it within the Hauppauge software.
ONE is also mapped to 1, so I can use that.
I'm only interested in fixing the channel 13.
I've refreshed the guide, but it doesn't help.
Any clues? Will I have to delete the tuner and start again?

Hi all,

I received an email from IceTV yesterday telling me that my recorder had stopped downloading the guide five days previously.
I checked and sure enough, I only had a couple of days on my guide left.
I manually updated which seemed to work okay but it doesn't look like it updated today. I only have five days of listings when I usually have up to seven.
Looking at the log in the IceTV Interactive tool (v3.00.37) it shows the "warn" error "Exception System.NullReferenceException - Object reference not set to an instance of an object".
This error repeats every minute. When I first looked at the log yesterday, I saw something mentioning a server error and to contact the server administrator. I'm assuming that means the IceTV server.
Unfortunately I cleared the log yesterday not realising I should've saved a copy.
So the short story is, I'd like to know what the error means and why my media centre suddenly stopped connecting to the IceTV server last Thursday at 11:34pm.
If someone can help me, I'd much appreciate it.
I've zipped the ice.log and ice.log.1 files and they are attached.

Cheers, Dale

Windows 7 Media Center / Recording errors - Guy Martin & Almost Human
« on: January 29, 2016, 09:28:58 PM »
I realised today that the second episode of "India with Guy Martin" on SBS2 didn't record yesterday.
I have no idea why because I can't go backwards with the Windows guide. I only know it isn't there. Could it have been incorrectly named so didn't record?
I don't know why SBS decided the correct name of "Our Guy in India" had to be changed.
I also had an episode of "Almost Human" recording on Gem on Tuesday night that stopped before the end because "Death Wish" was still running half an hour into my recording.
Again I can't verify anything because I can't go back in the guide.
Has anyone else have any issues lately with shows not recording correctly?

Hi all,

When I set up the guide in Vista, the instructions for IceTV Interactive says the following:

"When assigning guide listings to each channel you will need to ensure that in the second list (the guide channels) you only select channels below the option "Show no Listings for this Channel" as these are the correct guide channels."

I can't do that because there aren't any matching channels below that option. It shows every channel except the one I've selected (Not strictly true, I think ABC1 is there).
It doesn't seem to affect my use of the guide, but it is a bit strange. I don't know if I'm doing something wrong (I can't see how) or if the instructions are wrong.
The only reason I bring it up is because I occasionally get the error "Guide not available for your country or region. It's different to the setting in Control Panel" (Or something along those lines).
I've opened IceTV Interactive and clicked the "Fix Now" button, but I still get the error every now and then.
Anyone have any suggestions?


Media Portal / Analogue data
« on: February 03, 2009, 07:58:36 AM »

I am using MediaPortal happily with my digital TV tuners and viewing the IceTV data in the guide.
I also have an analogue tuner for just one channel (QCTV) but of course I have no EPG data for it.
Does anyone know of a way to view guide data for analogue stations?

Media Portal / "No data available" in EPG
« on: January 02, 2008, 11:07:41 AM »
For the past few days I haven't been able to get any Guide data to display.
I haven't changed or updated anything in MediaPortal so I can't see that it could be a problem. It's just that all of a sudden, the guide data is corrupted somehow. Maybe there's an error in the data and MediaPortal doesn't know how to display it properly.
If I delete the tvguide.xml file and re-run webget, restart Mediaportal and tell it to import the tv guide, the EPG listing flashes up briefly then disappears. All entries then show "No data available".
I thought it might have something to do with the new year, but it began happening over the weekend.
Can anyone help?

Media Portal / Incorrect EPG data doesn't go away with new download
« on: February 06, 2007, 07:50:52 AM »
Hi all,
I have a problem with the EPG within Media Portal.
If had a situation today where channel Seven Brisbane showed a "To be advised" listing at 10:30pm.
All the TV guides showed that there was an encore presentation of Heroes episode one (I missed the end last time because channel 7 ran overtime again!).
I have IceTV webget run nightly, but the incorrect data remained in my Media Portal EPG, so I had to delete the tvguide.xml file and rerun webget.
Is this a problem only with Media Portal, or does webget only download new data and tack it on at the end of what is already downloaded?
Shouldn't it overwrite the file with any new or changed listings?
