Interactive showing MCE recorded shows
« on: August 03, 2009, 09:50:47 AM »
I'm assuming the Interactive program pings MCE and the interactive program pings your website all the time...

If that's the case then why doesn't the Interactive website, iPhone app and Mac Dashboard widget display all my series recordings I have set up?

Because they are series recordings, they are "set and forget"... so sometimes when I'm out and I remember something is on I check my iPhone app...
I see that I no series recording listed... so I end up setting them again...

Can you make them appear in the Guide section...

You have the ones I have setup using the website... but not the one I have setup from MCE

If I understand correctly, you're asking why we can't show the series recordings on our web site that you've created in your MCE?

Unfortunately this is a limitation of the data we're able to get from MCE.  We can only get information about individual episodes scheduled to be recorded, not the information for the full series recording and its associated settings.  So in other words, if you create a series recording on the MCE machine for The Simpsons, and the MCE machine schedules several episodes to be recorded, we can display red dots next to each of the episodes on our web site, but we unfortunately can't display an entry on the My Shows page for the series recording itself.

Sorry, maybe this is something we'll be able to do in the future.

No... a red dot will be sufficient if it is displayed in the Guide section..
Doesn't matter if it a series recording or not, Just that there is a Red Dot next to it...
For example:
Listed tonight from my iPhone app I have (example only...  :-[ ) Desperate Housewives (set up from website) this shows on all devices...
I set up 7.pm Project from MCE...which only show from MCE...

It would be nice if they could at least appear RED to show as something which is either a series or one off recording...

like you have with the Orange (shows currently on-air)

Hope that makes sense?

Hi Marcus,

Actually, you should be seeing all recordings whether they are setup under the website or MCE on the website. If you are not then something could be wrong.

As Russell said the series recordings are not replicated across, so each recording in MCE should show as a one-time recording in the website, under both the TV Guide page and the My Upcoming Shows page listed under the device name they were created on.

I have a quick look in your account and it does look like there are recordings showing up that originated from the MCE machine and not from the website, are you seeing them now?
Regards,

Daniel.
CTO.

I have Neighbours set as series and 7.pm Project set as series...

These are not showing on iPhone app, or website

These two for tonight are not showing up as something I've got set to record.

I know they are series recordings.

And these were set from MCE which makes me think that the shows are not bouncing back to you guys for updated device listing under the "TV Guide" section
