Yahoo Widget randomly disappearing from screen
« on: June 11, 2015, 07:36:26 PM »
Ever since the major upgrade of the ICTV server, I find that the Widget on my PC (Win 7, 64 bit) seems to disappear at random - typically after a day or so (or often in less time) after reloading it. This problem happens even after a clean reboot of the computer. The whole widget closes down, just as it does when you manually close it.

Is anyone else experiencing this? A NO is just as useful feedback as a YES  :)

In 2014 IceTV stopped updating and stopped supporting the widget, after Yahoo killed off their widget engine in late 2012. 

I personally stopped using the yahoo widget due to the issue you describe where the widget would be missing. I usually noticed it was missing after rebooting the 64bit Win7 computer (which is the only time I see the desktop).

I don't miss it because the phone apps and website provides more options than the old widget ever did.

Thanks for the heads up Dave. I still find it a useful tool so I'll persist with it a bit longer.....
