Looks like 7HD is getting the chop (I wondered where the bits were going to be stolen from).
Yeah, that is disappointing, after all the hoopla advertising about true HD stations...
It's boggles the mind how program directors for these stations have no idea about content.

They must get pestered every time they go out about Why they continue to show Two and a Half men/Simpsons every chance they get.
I know they get good ratings.
But I just wish they would have the balls to show episodes in order from start to finish without repeating mid season.

General Discussions / New Channel for Seven Announced

Are you guys ready for this come September 25:
I'm assuming it will be like any new channel and will take around a week or so to get the guide listings?

If they are going to advertise all these wiz bang phone, interactive features then they need to be able to produce true interactivity...

The IceTV article you quoted described pretty accurately the level of interactivity that IceTV provides. If it's insufficient, then work around it or don't use it.

Once again you are correct, that didn't enter my mind for some reason. As you kept saying they couldn't do it, I was only thinking about the hardware/software on their end and completely didn't think about needing a fixed IP...

Apologies

Calm down big fella... So what you're saying is... IceTV NEVER EVER EVER NEVER PUSHES?
Sorry couldn't help myself

I guess then they need something like this...http://www.icetechnology.com/products/ipushv2/

If they are going to advertise all these wiz bang phone, interactive features then they need to be able to produce true interactivity...

It waits for the next contact from the recorder. I don't know the details for MCE, but on Beyonwiz, it attempts to connect at startup. If that attempt is sooner than the server has allowed it, the connection is refused. If not, it updates (there are separate minimum fetch times for the EPG and timers; 60 and 30 minutes respectively is normal on the Beyonwiz).

So (and just so I'm clear here, and not meaning to sound ignorant) according to http://www.icetv.com.au/cgi-bin/websupport.cgi?op=show_faq&faq_id=115&faq_cat_id=23

Most devices that support IceTV Interactive get their update timing from the IceTV server, which is about 30 minutes unless the IceTV server is under heavy load. So if you schedule something to record it'll normally happen within the next 30 minutes, maybe sooner.

So when I input a show to record via my iPhone. I wait 30 minutes for the IceTV server to "PUSH" the updated information to my MCE machine.

Which takes me back to my original question...If they can do this then why can't they force a "push" in the same manner when they make last minute program guide changes...

sorry if I'm sounding like broken record, just trying to understand the process... as it's obviously separate to simply fetching the guide every day at 3.00pm.

Yeah ok...but then how does it know if I set a last minutes record on my iPhone to set the record?

Or does it wait until the scheduled updated, the next day?

No, the contact is always from the recorder. The IceTV server never initiates contact with the recorder. When the recorder makes contact, it gets the latest EPG updates. The protocol isn't designed to have the server push data, as far as I know.

Yeah, I get that... but what needs to happen is that instead of waiting for the guide to do its scheduled update at 1.00pm (or whenever), which is fine for if there isn't any changes, to once the IceTV team make late lineup adjustments to the guide (change made at 1.30pm), they need to "push" the changes through instead of waiting until my MCE machine requests an update again at 1.00pm the following day.

No, the guide is "pulled" from the recorder.

To which it needs to "Push" after any guide change

Tonight, I have set to record via Interactive today to record "Big Chef takes on Little Chef" ABC1 tonight at 6.00-7.00
Instead Australia Votes is on...

My guide still states Big Chef takes on Little Chef

The interactive Guide is correct.

My question is when did this change?

And

Can you force a guide update when you change guide listings?

It would great if you had a link back to you web site...for example if I clicked on the IceTV logo in the top right hand corner...or something like that...
if I see something here I can quickly goto the interactive site etc etc

Hey Marcus, do you have the case number at all? I know I remember responding to that one...

Hey Daniel,

I've worked it out...it turns out to be the Big Screen EPG which was making the interactive error out.

For any one else that's having this problem here is the fix:

I had to use the feature in BSEPG which restores MCE back to stratch, then redo all channel scans which fixed it...

and just for shits and giggles I installed My Channel Logos which seem to NOT interfear which Interactive and seems to work ok...

While I wait patiently for you channel logo update...

No... unfortunately not... also I'm at work so can't check...

If it's a case of uninstalling MyChannel Logos then that's fine... but I would dearly Love Ice to implement this feature
