Scheduled programs never change from queued to record
« on: February 22, 2008, 10:38:32 AM »
All of my IceTV Remote scheduled programs are showing as "Q" or queued, but never change to "REC" or record.

Programs that I have manually set to record on Vista-32 MCE (Client is PIMP 2.0.0.16) are not recognised by IceTV Remote.

I have done a full PIMP uninstall/reinstall and a full program scan/add listings to channel.

Any thoughts?

Sometimes a “Record” task can get corrupted when it's cached on the hard drive. If this happens it is necessary to clear out all the cached tasks.

To do this:

  • Close the IceTV Interactive application (right click on the icon in the system tray and select “Exit”).
  • Open “Computer” from the start menu.
  • Select your hard drive from the list of drives available.
  • Double click on the “Users” folder.
  • Double click on the folder for you username in Windows.
  • Double click on the “AppData” folder, If you do not see this folder you will need to turn on the showing of hidden files, follow these steps to do this:
    • Click on the “Organise” button in the bar at the top of the window.
    • Select “Folder and Search Options” from the menu.
    • Click on the “View” tab.
    • Place a dot in the box marked “Show hidden files and folders”.
    • Click “OK”.
    • You should now be able to see the “AppData” folder.
  • Double click on the “Roaming” folder, then on the “IceTV” folder, then on the “IceTV Interactive” folder, and then on the “tasks” folder.
  • Delete everything in the “tasks” folder.

Once complete you can re-open the IceTV Interactive client from the Start Menu. It will automatically re-cache all the tasks and download any new tasks from the server.

The good news is that we have found the condition that causes this and a fix will be in the next version of IceTV Interactive.

Any idea when this problem will be fixed properly in the icetv client, it seems to happen to me quite a bit.

The above directions work in Vista, but not in XP.  This is where one can find the Task folder in XP :C:\Documents and Settings\Judy\Application Data\IceTV\IceTV\ Interactive\Task

I am presuming the same directions (for deleting) apply?
Cheers,
