Smart Recording on Android / Re: Google Home integration
December 31, 2018, 06:02:51 AM
Hi Daniel,

The PVR side of things is already there, as you already control that piece. It's building that backend integration via the Google api into your server so that Google can ask and control what is happening.

"Ok Google, check ICETV and tell me what's on at 830pm"

"Ok Google, please record xxxxx on channel 9 with ICETV"

The commands go from Google to my account on your server, them from your server to that app on my media centre, not to the app on my phone.

Has there been any thought from the ICETV crew about Google Home integration?

Thanks Daniel for your initial investigation. If it can be made to work in the future it would be great.

No Joy,

The app is installed to run as Win7 compatibility mode by default. Installing with Admin rights or running with admin rights didn't change the outcome. Same error as above.

Hi Dave,

Didn't think of that. Will try it and get back to you.

Hoping to revive this thread.

I have also just download the "unofficial" binaries for MediaCenter for Win10. As the previous posted noted, all technically works fine with Win10 and MediaCenter, installation was a breeze. I can watch TV, I get FTV guide data, I can record TV etc. I just cant get  ICETV to provide guide details.

Here is my startup log, mine though is showing an initialisation error

IceTV EPG Content / Multiple EPG regions
September 24, 2014, 03:30:55 PM
I am in an area where I can get both Sydney and Wollongong TV stations on my system. Is there anyway to get ICETV to give me both regions of EPG data?

Regards Trevor
Thank you Dave for your most unhelpful response.

I find it rather ironic that 2 different Win7MCE systems on in different parts of Australia have exactly the same "corruption".

What confounds me further, is that the corruption fixed itself yesterday without any help from me. Having been an IceTv user for 6 years, I always worry about DST changes, as that seems to be the only time your service has "issues". This time is no different.


Since DST change, Nine Evening news at 6pm has been labeled as Nine Afternoon News and will not record. When selected, it records the 9 afternoon news at 4:30pm and says the 6pm is a duplicate of the 4:30pm.

No amount of updating, syncing, rebooting will clear it. ICE please fix.

I have many things on Nine that I record.  I have the NEWS each night at 6:00pm, which does get recorded, but lists it at "National Nine News afternoon edition".  I also have "The Voice" scheduled to record tonight at 7:00pm.  The problem with that is going to be that it is showing as "National Nine News" and, looking at it in Media Center, it will only record for 30 minutes.

I have this exact same issue with my W7MCE. It is highly annoying as it will not let me record the ch9 6pm news. I have rebooted and re-synced and the problem is occurring.

ICETV can you please contact me or fix it straight away. These problems have only occurred since DST change on Sunday. It seems every year at DST change time there is a week of hell from your service.
