Downloading guide through GSM Network
« on: March 25, 2008, 02:06:04 PM »
Unfortunately I am currently without internet access and will be for another 5 weeks. This means I'm unable to update my guide through the obvious means.

However, I've had some success using a cable connection to my mobile and connecting through the GSM network to the internet. This has allowed me to use the IceTV interactive software ( as 17 was locking up) to test my settings and receiving a success message.

However, when I go to update my guide data it does not appear to work correctly and gives me an error along the lines of 'File.IO cannot read beyond the end of stream' or something along those lines. Unfortunately I can't remember the exact wording, and can't post at the time of testing (due to speed/data costs).

Things like padding and the channel list appear to work ok. The issue seems to purely be the guide update, and after two attempts I get locked out due to me hitting the server too often.

Has anyone tried this before and had it working?

edit: Hopefully you can disregard. I now have a pre-paid dial up card and will try using my phone and dial-up networking to see if that works.
