« on: March 08, 2011, 02:24:24 PM »
IceTV V2.5 for iPhone is now available from the App Store.

This version should address the issues experienced by some V2.4 users where the app crashed when used on iPhones still running IOS 3.1.3.

After updating, if you still experience crashes, please let us know by logging a support case at:

It seems that there are still issues with 2.5(25) on some phones running 3.1.3, we are investigating the issue and will release another fix as soon as possible.

We apologise for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.
Cheers,

Dan
Software Manager @ IceTV

Hi IceTV,

A couple of small bugs in 2.5(25).

1. Times don't honour my iPhone's 12/24 hour setting.  They are always shown in 12-hour time.

2. My Shows displays the three-heart Favourites symbol only for the first device, if I have more than one PVR (see attached image).

I had an anomaly earlier this week with deleting a schedule and the wrong schedule getting deleted, but I didn't make notes or take screenshots.  I will try it again and report back.

Otherwise, it's looking pretty good.  Looking forward to the Universal app for iPad...

Hi Futzle,
Thanks for your feedback, I've added the Fav bug and time setting feature request (currently we just use 12hr time as it is the most common usage) to our bug tracking system.

I can't say if/when they will be actioned as it depends a lot on day to day workload.

As for the schedule delete issue, if you could find a reproducible set of steps we can try then I will add it to the issues list.

Daniel, this version still exhibits the same bug previous versions (or at least the immediate previous version) exhibited that sometimes returning from a programs detail page drops you back to the start of the search or guide page. I have also seen it return to a page full of horizontal lines but no content at all. Somebody else here mentioned this bug recently. Please ensure this bug is on your list.

Guys, Just encountered a problem. I have been using IceTV for ages and been great. I use the iPhone app with the iPhone 4 v4.3 (just updated). The latest update (2.5) with the iPhone version 4.3 seems to have a bug in which I can't record remotely. I can view EPG and cancel existing recordings but if I want to start a new recording there is no option. I have tried re installing etc with no luck. Can anyone help?

thedenisons,
We are aware of the issue with iOS4.3, I submitted an update to Apple on Friday that corrects it, we expect it to hit the store tue/wed based on past updates.

Yeah, same issue here. I've had to use the Beyonwiz EPG to set recordings one-by-one for new shows.

Great to hear Ice is on top of it and has an update ready.

I just received an email from Apple to say that the update is now "In Review", hopefully it will be approved shortly.

The issue with 4.3 is really unexpected and looks to be a bug/change in the way SQLite works on the phone. My gut feeling is that other people will run into issues with it too.

We really appreciate your patience on this issue.

I just received an email from Apple announcing that the 2.6 update has been approved, it may take up to 24 hours to appear in the App Store.

I had a look in the SDK documentation and did some Googling and it seems that apps cannot access that information, we would have to add our our "12/24 Hour" setting in the app.

I'm OK with that.  Though I am surprised that NSDateFormatter's setTimeStyle:NSDateFormatterShortStyle doesn't do the job.  Thanks for looking into it.  It's not a huge deal; I'm 12/24 hour bilingual. :)
