IceTV Interactive version 2.0.0.18 Beta 1 available
« on: April 14, 2008, 04:01:09 PM »
The next version of IceTV Interactive is ready for beta testing.

This will bring the version up to 2.0.0.18 and includes a lot of bug fixes and optimizations. Both Windows XP MCE2005 and Windows Vista versions are attached to this post.

If you would like to help us test these new versions before they are released please download them below, and definitely respond in this thread with any feedback that you have on these new versions (and don't forget to include whether you are testing the XP or Vista version when posting feedback).

The change list for 2.0.0.18 Beta 1 is:

  • Removed sending of filenames from Video directory to IceTV server.
  • Changed server URL to help with load balancing.*

* If you have a firewall rule setup for www.icetv.com.au, you will now need one for remote-mce.icetv.com.au

This also includes all fixes for version 2.0.0.17 which are:

  • Removed splash screen on startup.
  • Restored missing DVB Fix checkbox on Windows XP.
  • Reduced unnecessary connections to the server when an invalid username or password is entered.
  • Better handling of locked .exe and .dll files during installation. Added a note to close the old program first, and automatic file replacement after reboot if files are locked.
  • Added a desktop icon pointing to "IceTV Interactive.exe".
  • Retry launching IceGuide4MCE.exe when it fails.
  • Better handling of corrupted messages from the server.
  • Better handling of old .bin files.

These can be installed over the top of existing installations and it will carry the settings over.
Regards,

Daniel.
CTO.

Just upgraded, but I have noticed the following error still occurs (as per all previous versions):

Error getting local scheduled program info: Wednesday ABC

System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
   at IceTV.MainForm.putLocalTasks(scheduler oScheduler)

"Wednesday ABC" is a manual recording I have set up.

Running on Vista Ultimate RTM (ie: no service pack 1).

Is this actually a real problem?

Regards,
Frank

Hi Frank,

Thanks for letting us know about the problem with manual recordings.  By manual, I assume you mean that you've told MCE to record on a particular channel at a particular time, rather than using the guide to setup the recording.  We'll take a look at it and see if we can get our program to work better with that situation.

Just out of curiosity, I wonder why you're using a manual recording instead of selecting the program you want from the guide?

Thanks,
Russell

Hi Russell,

Yes, your correct in that I'm telling MCE to record a particular channel for a certain amount of time.

I'm doing this rather than using the guide as I always record 5 shows in a row on ABC on Wednesday evenings, and I found it much easier (and more stable for MCE) to simply set one long recording rather than 5 individual shows. This also allows me to record another show/channel during that time as I'm only using one tuner.

I could use the guide for the first show and extend the finish time by 3 hours, but I've tried this in the past on other shows and had MCE "forget" about the extended finish time, but not every time, and I'm under strict instructions to never, never, never miss recording these shows, so I've set it up in a way that always works  :)

Thanks,
Frank.
