Guide missing completely
« on: March 09, 2009, 05:55:40 PM »
I have a couple of problems, one major one minor.

For the past couple of days, I have had NO EPG on my 7100.

Pinging ICeTV tells me my connections is OK, but nothing shows up on the guide - everything is blank.

I've not changed from the october firmware, as it has (mostly) been working fine.

Any ideas?


Also, every so often strange shows appear on my interactive as being selected to record (I mean, for god's sake, who records Today Tonight!). Any ideas?

I too have had problems over the weekend but it has all come good again today. I am also running the October firmware as I have found it has given me the least problems (although others will disagree...)

Me to...The connection to IceTV is good.  BUT, after trying to bring up the Guide, a popup says the ICETV SERVER IS BUSY...Try again in 2 minutes.
Well, iv'e been trying for a few days, but to no avail.  I have rebooted, reconfigured, kicked the cat and I am tired of wasting my time.  I can't find any answers in the forum either.
Any ideas anyone??

I finally (I think) got my machine on line. I get an EPG for the ABC and SBS but no others. This machine after all its promises has turned out to be the biggest time waster. The guy at the shop told me that PVRs will revolutionise the way we watch TV. Certainly has, we spend more time looking at menu screens than actually watching TV.

I bought the 7100 to replace the heap of junk 7000 I had. Thought this one may just work a bit better! All was going really good, no problems at all, ICE was working well. Now in the last few days the ICE epg is a disgrace! No content at all on some channels, epg sometimes days ahead, missed timers from last night. I have done a factory reset and started again as was suggested in another post but to no avail. It appears the problem is with ICETV itself as the FTA guide is perfect.

We came across a weird limitation in the Topfield firmware with regards to descriptions, more details at http://www.icetv.com.au/iceforum/index.php?topic=1657.msg7699#msg7699

Mine too , installed dec firmware as request by tech support , reinstalled and started from scratch , EPG was ok eventually after 4 reinstalls and setups for one day only , interactive is all screwed up recording stuff at wrong times normally a hr out.
Currently no EPG on most channels and the channels that  have it are scrambled in times ie sat and sun programs on fri eventing ?

What has IceTV changed in the last week as a lot of subscribers have started having problems.
How can it go from working great to not working at all or intermittently.
The firmware version can't be blamed as I had'nt changed it untill I started having problems.

As I said a couple of posts above, there is a limit to the size of descriptions that the Topfield can process, this has only just now shown itself, Topfield are now aware that it causes a problem and as a workaround we are currently limiting the description length that is being sent to the Topfield TF7100HDPVRt.

I still have no EPG except ABC and SBS. Any clues? I live in Nrthrn NSW and really cannot find a region/zone to suit. Is this a problem?
