This program UK program "recorded" but it was actually American program "Criminal Confessions". Am I correct in assuming this was a late change?


A few days back I reported thant Bones "The End In The End" content descriptiion was in error when say it is  the final for season 5; it is in fact the last espisode, the final of season 12 (episode 12) and indicated on the on-line EPG. The data base still has the wrong sesaon in the episode discription.

The desctiption of this episode says it is the final for season 5; it is in fact the last espisode, the final of season 12. Please update your data base.


Everything is Broken Part 1 has not previously been shown (in Melbourne); I suspect it is the second last episode of season 14; the air date in Canada was 8 March 2021.

IceTV EPG Content / Program description Vera ABC Friday oddity
« on: March 24, 2021, 11:23:06 AM »
The description starts off with a “notice” that a new season will be starting ... in 2019. This has been happening with all episodes for some time now. It would appreciated if it could be fixed.


Topic title says it all:

Probably same for 10 (not HD)


IceTV EPG Content / 7HD Melbourne Tonight (03-03-21) To Be Advised
« on: March 03, 2021, 05:41:12 PM »

EPG is showing two To Be Advised slots on 7HD Melbourne, at 8:50 and 9:30. Is this going to be updated?

IceTV EPG Content / Timer not being delivred to T2 and U4
« on: February 26, 2021, 03:51:28 PM »
On both my U4 and T2 the timers for the following program are missing, although they are shown in My Week as being scheduled:

Who Do You Think You Are? UK 'Paul Merton' SBS HD, 7:30pm, Fri, 26 Feb 2021, 65 minutes

Seems rather odd. Will try resending the timers.


PS The timer made it successfully to both my 7100+

Update: Timers now appear on the T2 and U4 - resending the timers worked; or I had a seniors moment and did not see them earlier ...

General Discussions / Failure to schedule programs on Topfield 7100+
« on: February 17, 2021, 12:06:10 PM »
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,


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.

IceTV EPG Content / Missing program data
« on: January 21, 2021, 05:05:51 PM »
For Melbourne, Victoria, there is a large number of programs for which generic information only is provided - no season number and episode nuber, or eopisode names.

Ones that I have noticed are below:
Great British Railway Journeys, SBS HD, 3:00pm, Fri, 22 Jan 2021, 30 minutes
Who Do You Think You Are? Australia, SBS HD, 3:30pm, Fri, 22 Jan 2021, 60 minutes
Who Do You Think You Are? Australia, SBS HD, 8:30pm, Fri, 22 Jan 2021, 70 minutes
Who Do You Think You Are? Australia, SBS HD, 3:25pm, Mon, 25 Jan 2021, 60 minutes
Who Do You Think You Are? Australia, SBS HD, 3:20pm, Tue, 26 Jan 2021, 60 minutes
Who Do You Think You Are? Australia, SBS HD, 3:25pm, Wed, 27 Jan 2021, 65 minutes
Bull, 10 HD, 9:30pm, Wed, 27 Jan 2021, 60 minutes
Silent Witness, 9Gem HD, 10:50pm, Wed, 27 Jan 2021, 80 minutes
NCIS, 10 Bold, 8:30pm, Mon, 25 Jan 2021, 55 minutes
NCIS, 10 Bold, 9:25pm, Mon, 25 Jan 2021, 55 minutes
Diagnosis Murder, 10 Bold, 3:30pm, Wed, 27 Jan 2021, 60 minutes

There is also multiple episodes of Escape to the Country and Bargain Hunt with just generic information.


According to the guide and the recordings, the episodes of The Mentalist transmitted on 31 December on &flix Melbourne were:
Pink Chanel Suit and Red Hot (Season 3, episodes 6 and 7)
however the episodes actually transmitted were:
Cackle-Bladder Blood and The Blood on His Hands (Season 3 episodes 2 and 3).

Things started to get out of sync with The Mentalist last week when, at the last minute Sever pulled the two episodes scheduled to be transmitted on Wednesday, and no ajustement was made by Ice TV to the episodes scheduled for the following day (Thursday). We now seem to be 4 episodes out - is it possible that there were two episodes scheduled for Wednesday 30 December and they were also pulled (possibly at the last moment again).

If the episodes continue in the order they have in fact being transmitted, the next episode should be Red Carpet Treatment.

7flix seems to be having problems with episodes on The Mentalist, there was a similar issue late in November.


General Discussions / Silent Witness 9Gem HD Melbourne 23-12-2020
« on: December 24, 2020, 10:51:38 AM »
IceTV had Silent Witness Home Part 1 scheduled for last night, however 9Gem showed combined episode for Home Part 1 and Part 2, even with generous post padding I lost the end of the second episode. I assume that Nine provided incorrect informaiton to IceTV on the length of the episode.

Eatlier in the week DCI Banks What Will Survive was correctly timed and titled as a combinded episode.

Both Silent Witness and DCI Banks are shown either as two part episodes or a combined episode Nine Network (and ABC before it) and it is not always obvious which format is going to be adopted. This makes it difficult for IceTV to get the correct details into the guide and the timers.
