IceTv Interactive App on VMC
« on: May 01, 2009, 01:16:43 PM »
Hi.

Just need to understand something if possible.

The IceTv interactive app that you install on your HTPC is primarily for downloading remotely scheduled recordings. Does it also handle the EPG download?

I ask as I am thinking of not running the IceTv app with "Automatic" updates as I would like to put the HTPC to sleep when not used. Will changing this setting disable just the remote dowloads and/or the EPG data? Does the IceTv app even need to be running to get EPG data for VMC or does the install process install a Windows service to handle this?

thanks

VMC handles the guide downloads by itself, so you don't need the IceInteractive program running to have a fully functioning and updated guide. Stopping it from updating only effects remote scheduling of shows to record. It doesn't stop daily guide updates.
