The most recent episode on TenPlay is Season 5, Episode 8 (Cloak and Beaker) which aired last week in Melbourne (on Wednesday 10/2/22, also on the following Tuesday, posssibly on Saturday as well). That episode is also listed as the most recent on on the CBS site (aired on 8 Feb).

Daniel, thanks for the response. I am sure that you are correct when you say that part of the explanation is the way Toppys deal with changes to scheduled times.

I will wait and see if the issue settels down.

Thanks

Just checked both 7100+ and:

Michael Palin: Travels Of A Lifetime 'Series 1, Episode 2'
Antiques Roadshow 'Floors Castle 1' ABC TV HD, 6:00pm, Sun, 21 Feb 2021, 60 minutes

Are scheduled. It is possible that I manually scheduled them last night when I noticed they were not scheduled. I also had to manually schedule NCIS and NCIS LA on one of the 7100+ last night. At least one of the two was scheduled on the other 7100+. So many problems lately it is hard to remember what they were.

Tonight something rather odd. The onlie guide gives the following:
Michael Palin: Travels Of A Lifetime 'Series 1, Episode 2' SBS HD, 8:30pm, Wed, 17 Feb 2021, 55 minutes REPEAT

I doubt this is a repeat as S01E01 was on last week.

Ian

Just watched The Pier which was on last night and SBS were advertising the program as a premier.

Those two are also properly scheduled on my U4 and T2.

I can only conclude that there is some sort of misconfiguration of the server settings for the 7100+.

I have received 31+ failure emails since 1.00 am on Tuesday; 4 of them were failure to reschedule the failed timers. For Michael Palin: Travels Of A Lifetime 'Series 1, Episode 2' SBS HD, 8:30pm, Wed, 17 Feb 2021 there is a claimed timer conflict, and for Antiques Roadshow, 'Floors Castle 1'ABC TV HD, 6:00pm, Sun, 21 Feb 2021 it reports TASK_MSG_INVALID_SERVICE.

I have rebooted both units, and resent the timers (again). Hopefully it will work this time. UPDATE It did not work!

In the last 24 to 48 hours I have has muiltiple failures to shcedule recodings on my 7100+. Normally when I get error message TASK_MSG_INVALID_SERVICE in an failure email the time is ultimately scheduled, but this did not happen in many instances. Examples include (on both units):

War Of The Worlds Episodes 1 to 4, Sunday, February 21 SBSHD

Antiques Roadshow, 'Floors Castle 1'ABC TV HD, 6:00pm, Sun, 21 Feb 2021

Who Do You Think You Are? UK 'Katherine Ryan' SBS HD, 8:30pm, Fri, 19 Feb 2021

Time Warp: The Greatest Cult Films Horror And Sci-Fi' SBS VICELAND HD, 9:20pm, Thu, 18 Feb 2021

Michael Palin: Travels Of A Lifetime 'Series 1, Episode 2' SBS HD, 8:30pm, Wed, 17 Feb 2021

As far as I can work out it only happens with 7100+, not the 2400 or any of my Beyonwiz.

It is extreamly tedious having to manually resend the recordings,

I am still getting multiple scheduling of the same program on my two 7100+. In each case there is either one or two instances that have an error message [TASK_MSG_INVALID_SERVICE] and one which is successful - time is exactly the same. See attachment for details.

General Discussions / Topfield 7100+ Odd behaviour
« on: February 13, 2021, 03:41:45 PM »
I am getting a lot (much, much more than usual) emails about one or other of my 2 7100+ being unable to schedule a downlaoded timer. The error message is "Message from recorder:   TASK_MSG_INVALID_SERVICE"

The only good news is that I am not now seeing multiple timers as the same time (one of which was successfully downloaded).

I am not seeing this with the 2400 so I wonder if it is something specific to the 7100+. The firmware on the 7100+ (1.10.00, 18-11-13) is much older than that on the 2400 (2.16.00, 19-01-16) which could explain the diferent behaviour.

Behaviour is similar with Toppys, however the number of days is less.

Peter, checked my region settings and it is correct; ABVTV HD is enabled, but ABC TV (SD) is not enabled. I have deleted SD services for which there is a corresponding SD service both in IceTV settings and on the Toppys.

The Toppys use an old IcedTV EPG API, not the one used by the Beyonwiz T, U and V series.
The way Toppys (other than the 5300) works is that (as I understand it) only time informtion (not the program details) is sent to the Toppy. The Toppy then picks up the program information from the EPG when the program records. This can result in no program information for reordings if the EPG is blank for one reason or another. Timer information and EPG data are sent separately to the Toppy. After the initial download of timers and EPG the EPG and Timer informaiton are downloaded at 30 minute intervals, with a 15 minute offset between the EPG and Timer downloads.

Hi Peter, error message is (at least for one instance):
"There was an error scheduling this show to device 7100+ 1.TASK_MSG_INVALID_SERVICE."
That would be consistent with the emails advising problem with the timers.

Would I be correct in assuming that the timer was downloaded before the relevant EPG data had been downloaded? Something I suspect happens regularly with my Toppys.

have an example of double-up on both my 7100+ for Jack Irish on 12 February. No double-up on the U4. In each case all have the same commencement time - did not check the run time.
Ian

This could be a different issue as only one is shown as scheduled; others have a problem.
