I have an iPhone 13 and running iOS 15.5.

SBS have been fiddling with things. They had the English edition of the Indian news on Channel 35 at 8 am daily, and then suddenly moved it to the HD channel, same time but different title. That basically threw out all recordings set for it.

So I went to set the recording via the app, only apart from showing upcoming episodes and settng it as a favourite, there are no other options to set it as a recording, single or series.

Now, I can set the recording from my T2, and the entries show up in the app, however you cannot change anything via the app because again, all that comes up s the option to see upcoming episodes and set it as a favourite.

Is this something that SBS is doing or IceTV?

Thanks for the heads up, we have updated 9GO! with the new triplets.

As for SBS World Watch it looks like SBS sent us the wrong information and cross checking it looks like they sent us the SBS triplets by mistake, this has also been corrected now.

If you refresh the guide it will download the correct channel information now.

Thanks. I did a reboot and all OK now.

Cheers for the heads up, looks like we had a typo in Perth, this has been fixed, rebooting the T4 should be enough to get it to download the updated channel information.

There is also an issue in Sydney.

First doing a rescan to pick up SBS World Watch, a similar blank entry appeared for 9GO

Here before the scan, the bouquet file for channel 99 was

#SERVICE 1:0:1:423:420:1012:EEEE0000:0:0:0:

and it worked ok. After the scan, it became

#SERVICE 1:0:1:428:420:1012:EEEE0000:0:0:0:

and that saw a blank for Channel 99 in the IceTV EPG.

Now for SBS World Watch, I had nothing to compare it with a BEFORE. All I have after the scan is

#SERVICE 1:0:1:308:300:3202:EEEE0000:0:0:0:

It gives a blank entry for the IceTV EPG. I have no idea as to what it needs to be.

Hope this helps.

I have tried the usual power down and reboot, and disable IceTV, and then enable IceTV and fetch the EPG and timers.

Oh, and mine is a T2.

I've just been through something similar having Gove from a "dead" DP-P1 to a T2.

THe whole thing of channels as we know them has been turned on its head. The Tx does not understand LCNs as such. With pointers from IceTV support, I ended up manually editing the terrestrial .tv file so that just the channels I want are there. The bouquet favourites and last scanned (I think) were emptied of all channels.

Now, I have just one channel where duplicates normally are, and are grouped.

So, I have channels 11, 12, 13, 21, 22, 23, 24, 30, 32, 33, 70, 71, 72, 73, 76, 90, 92, 93, and 94

If you are prepared to edit the .tv files yourself you can give it a go. Use keep a copy of the original ones.

Basically, it has to do with line numbers.

You will see a whole lot of identical lines. These are where no channels are present. In the metro areas, on line 3' you will see that line is not like the ones where no channels. The same will be for the next two. These are for channels 1 (One), 2 (ABC 1), 3 (SBS) then the next line with data for a channel will be for 7, then no channel for the next, then 9......

Now without listing the entire file, you get the idea.

Basically, the channel numbers as we know them are now lines in this file, with 1 starting on line 3. It becomes a case of figuring out which channels you want, and then editing the terrestrial .tv file. The reason you have effectively empty .tv files for the rest is to make sure that you do not have any alternate channels.

So far, I have not had any issues since doing this on my T2.

So, it is the channel you want plus 3 that gives you the line number. Don't delete the unwanted channels because this will give you "channel numbers" that will be all over the place.

So, it can be done, just a little more work, and by keeping a copy of the original and then the customised one, you can readily replace ones that get automatically updated.

Ah well, at least not as bad as what is happening with WIN and Southern Cross across the country with the channel swaps!

Always keep a copy of the originals.
