IceTV EPG Content / Re: 7 , 7HD and 7Mate TV guide 24 April in Melbourne

Hi there Garyvx and IanL-S -

Many thanks for your notes regarding the 7HD and 7Mate switchover that occurred in the midst of The Blacklist. Unfortunately, the broadcaster did not advise that this was going to occur and particularly in the middle of a a first-run, often recorded show.

The IceTV guide has been updated to reflect the 7Mate programming on 7HD for today. It looks like it will be switched back to 7HD programming after the AFL. You should see the changes reflected in the next few minutes.

Kind regards,

Tiphanee

Hi Paul,

I was going to suggest that you hadn't taken a settings backup immediately prior to USB flashing your T3 and T4 with 20180417 in the wee hours of Wed Apr 18.  The timers get sent 6 days out, so they would've been sent the previous (Tues) evening. Your settings restore would've been from an older backup that didn't have the timers for Mon 23-Apr. A resend all timers from your IceTV account would've fixed that up.
That all sounded plausible to me - apart from the fact the timer wasn't set on your DP-P2 as well :)

Did your Ice account expire for a period?  I think the DP-series timers get sent 5 days out, so if your account expired for a few days before you renewed then that could also be a possibility.

Hi GG,

If it were only the t3 and T4 then I too would attribute it to having mucked around with firmware. But it doesn't explain why the P2 failed to receive timers for channel 7.

Your theory is probable for the T3 since it gets the least attention these days. Didn't really bother with the timers and it's backup was after the USB update (it was set up from scratch) so I can wear that one.

For the T4, I took a backup on 17/04 @ 12:16 pm. Just checked it though and it only contains timers to Sunday evening. So, if Monday's timers weren't sent until later on the 17th then that backup would not have contained them. Flashed the firmware on the 18th. Your point is that if IceTV thinks a timer has been sent and received, from there it only updates the timer but doesn't send it anew. So the lesson here is to backup immediately prior to reflashing a T/U series.

That leaves the P2 with no explanation. It did not record anything either, according to the other half. She said she had to manually enter the channel 7 timers. If it had been sent a timer for 7HD, it may have recorded the wrong show because of 7 converting 7HD to 7 Mate HD suddenly and without warning last night.

My subscription renews automatically on the 26th.

Cheers, P.

Late last night or early this morning (towards the end of the transmission of The Blacklist) 7HD Melbourne suddenly became 7Mate HD Melbourne. Not pleased.

What do we need to do to recover from this shambles - Beyonwiz and Toppy in particular.

Looks like 7 Network has been playing silly-buggers. I had The Blacklist recording on my T2 and toward the end the content changed from 7HD to 7Mate HD (lost the last 10 minutes of the program). Not sure if they made any announcement they were going to do this but doing it in the middle of a program is unprofessional.

We have three different Beyonwiz devices set to record channel 7 shows Home and Away and My Kitchen Rules. These are a DP-P2, a T3 and a T4. Last night, none of these received timers for these two channel 7 shows, which nearly ruined our evenings viewing.

A check of the T4 log revealed no timer was sent to the T4. The shows both appear before and after Monday but not on Monday. So what went wrong Monday?

Fortunately, the other half manually entered a timer for MKR after it started. And we also record Home and Away on Foxtel too. This is because we find our paid IceTV service unreliable at key times and do not trust it. It is not at all encouraging that our money is well spent if primetime shows on the main channel we watch have to be recorded on independent devices or manually checked daily to have some prospect we will get to see them.

Also, later in the evening I note that 7HD has suddenly become 7 Mate HD. The guide was listing 7 HD programs but what was playing was 7 Mate shows. This does not explain the failure to send timers though; our setting is prefer high def but the shows were available in SD too.

IceTV EPG Content / 7 , 7HD and 7Mate TV guide 24 April in Melbourne

Hi All

It seems a lot of the TV guides and the FTA TV guide for Melbourne tomorrow are showing that 7HD and 7Mate have the same programming. Is this so they can have the AFL game in HD and show their normal programing on 7 (SD) channel?
Very strange...better record the 7 (SD) channel or my wife will not be happy if I miss MKR :)

Regards Gary
