Annoying thing happened after guide update today.
« on: August 08, 2006, 10:02:41 PM »
I'm using a freshly built MCE - 3 days old + ICETV

- Update guide at 4 p.m. - automatic update.
- No program recorded after 4 p.m.
- All the red dots doesn't appear starting Monday August 14.
- Reboot the system - all seems to be ok again.

Weird... annoying...
Wife not impressed as she missed the final of dancing with ice...
It only happens on 1 of my MCE, and not on the other. So I assume this is MCE related, not ICETV related....

Try installing PIMP on the machine and enabling one setting - the DVB Fix option, and set it to happen after your guide update.

You may need to change your guide update time as well so it occurs when you are least likely to be watching TV. You can try the PIMP guide update option (still causes issues for me) or grab the guide time change utility from here:

I can't promise this will fix it, but the DVB Fix option means I rarely (if ever) have to restart my Media Center PC and may help this too.
