I am on dial-up and only intermittently check my e-mail and some sites on the web. While I am online the widget updates the current TV program schedule. Occasionally it fails, leaving me with no information at all and I have to shut it down and  re-open it to get the new guide.  When I am on-line Windows checks for updates and downloads and installs them - requiring me to shut down the PC. Life happens.

Would it be possible for the Widget to keep a backup of the last successful TV schedule received, or to access any such file that it already keeps,  so that when the PC is rebooted and the widget opens,  it displays the most recent current guide successfully downloaded?

While the Yahoo Widget is presently "otherwise engaged" I have at least been able to do a daily save of the relevant Interactive pages which addresses my problem. I'll continue doing that when/if the Widget revives.

The newly released version of the Widget at least has C31 as a possible source of program.
Have IceTV heard something or is it part of a wish-list?

Not addressed in new Widget.   
Slan fairy Anne.

God (and Widget writers) answer all prayers.
Sometimes the answer is "No."

Good to see the Widget back.  Thanks all.

As I have become used to keeping a set of Ice, My Upcoming Shows and TV Guide, during the Great Widget Drought I will keep going with that as my "back-up".

Thanx for the feedback Lindsay.
