Only 1 weeks worth of guide data?
« on: September 28, 2007, 01:00:08 PM »
I've just re-installed my Vista media center and I'm currently only getting about 6-7 days worth of data downloaded, I'm sure it used to be 2 weeks worth...but not certain.

Can someone confirm how many days worth of data we should be getting? and possible causes of why I'm only getting a weeks worth at the moment if it's a problem.

Hello,

Ice currently (and have done so since launch) provide 7 days of EPG data, exception being ABC that seems to sometimes get 8 or 9 days (I believe this is because Ice use a direct EPG stream from ABC, but I may be wrong - it's been a while).

Regards,
Shane.

Shane is absolutely correct, we do provide 7 days or EPG data for all channels, with ABC and SBS sometimes going out past this.

While we don't get a direct feed from ABC and SBS we do get updates from then on schedule changes and they do tend to publish more up to 14 days at any time.
