For at least the last two weeks the wrong episode details have been given in the IceTV EPG data - presumably because inaccurate information was provided by the network. On 2 Decemeber the episode was said to be Shaddows Part 1 but was in fact Run Part 2. Run Part 1 was shown the previous week, but again had wrong episode information. According to the IceTV guide Shadows Part 2 will be on next Wednesday night; I would expect that it should be Shadows Part 1.

Nine seems to be showing the two part version of Silent Witness; at least in the early years the BBC also provided the two parts as one episode. Not sure if this is the explanation or not. I have a dim recollection that when GEM first started showing the program they aired the combined episodes. Not sure it that is part of the explanation.

IceTV EPG Content / The Mentalist 7flix 26-11-20 Incorrect espisodes names
« on: November 27, 2020, 03:25:13 PM »
On 7flix last night two episodes of The Mentalist were scheduled. According to IceTV they were The Redshirt (season 4 episode 9)followed by Fugue in Red (season 4 episode 10). I did not notice the episode names until this morning, and was surprised that  The Redshirt was on as it was on the night before. I checked the recordings themselves and  The Redshirt was not shown last night; the episodes shown were Fugue in Red (season 4 episode 10) followed by Always Bet on Red (season 4 episode 11).

I assume that incorrect information was provided to IceTV. The next episode shown should be My Bloody Valentine (season 4 episode 12). The IcedTV guide is show at 8.30 PM (Melbourne) on Wednesday December 3 is as expected My Bloody Valentine followed at 9.30 PM by Red is the New Black (season 4 episode 13). On Thusday December 4 At First Blush followed by War of the Roses (season 4 episodes 14 and 15). So it looks like it is only a one-off glitch.

I'd like to set a series recording on IceTV as i've been watching them on 9now

Peter, thanks for the comprehensive update. Unfortunately I do not pay much attention to my T2s. In particular I was not paying any attention to the content of the IceTV log. Hopefully I will remember to check it out next time I have a problem.


Peter, I cannot be of assistance. I am not aware of this happening with any of my T2s or my U4. I have not looked at the logs. If it will help I will do so.

If you are worried about the size of USB storage, you can get some very small drives (with HDD), or you could go with a USB enclosure for an M.2 SATA or M.2 NVMe drive. More expensive but unobtrusive.

If there is space you can place a 2.5" USB HDD behind the V2 where it will be next to invisible. On the other hand, a 3.5" USB HDD is harder to hide, although the Seagate ones are slimmer than most WD ones. You could also place the V2 on Top of the USB HDD - making sure you do not block the vents on the drive.

It would be good to get Montalbano back!

Thanks for the clarification, it much appreciated. So if in doubt, do a GUI restart to confirm the configuration.


Would I be correct to assume that if the USB Tuners show the correct settings (DVB-T or DVB-T2) in Openwebif that the turner is both recognised and working?


@grumpy_geoff, so you have to reboot rather than restart the GUI?

As far as I am aware all three have been rebooted in the last two or three days. Will give them another go just to be sure.


I suspect part of the problem may be long pre- and post padding, but why it should start happening now is unclear.

Found the email for latest instance, and the error was timed 20 seconds before the recording started.


@grumpy_geoff, thanks for the advice about the meta file. The first thing I checked was if the USB dongle was being detected, in Openwebif the USB tuner was recognised. One is only DVB-T, the other two are DVB-T/T2; only one support DVB-C if I recall correctly.


Each of my T2s has a USB tuner.

Had a seniors moment - it was not the firmware update that deleted the recording, I deleted them myself. I did not do a save of setting before I did the firmware update (on some to the T2s) - I have 3 of them and did the updates over the last 36 hours; it may be on the one I did today that I restored a rather ancient backup made in March or there about - thus no history.

It is really weird that this started happening in the last few days - not happened previously (had the T2s for several years now).

I use the T2 for recording rather than watching, so time shift is disabled. No streaming on the T2.

I have deleted the recording so cannot check the information.

Cannot confirm the number of timers that were recording - I decided to install the latest Beta to see if that resolved the problem. Doing so deleted the completed timer listing. Also it deleted most of the recordings - I copied the one I wasted to my PC, edited them to remove pre- and post padding and any add, then used TFtool to convert them to native Toppy recording, and copied them to one of my Toppys.

As far as I am aware at the time there would have been recordings being made on 7Two, 9GemHD and Bold.
