I am noticing strange character sequences showing up the epg descriptions.  For instance, from the web display of the upcoming War of the Worlds.
QuoteBill explains his plan to infect the aliens with a virus to Ethan, Dominic and Michael but can’t bring himself to support
You would expect a single quote/apostrophe.  It there an issue ? I see the same sequence on my recorder and the web.

When I dig into the PVR storage of the description, I find the strange characters are coming from a sequence of 8 bytes (decimal) 195,162,226,130,172,226,132,162, in the midst of the text.

Not getting updates and getting this entry in the ice log after attempting a manual fetch and update.

This is on a Beyonwiz U4 which has been rebooted.

Tried enable/disable to no avail.

Any ideas what to try next?

IceTV version 20191013

Making very few changes to my recordings, I missed that the useful qualifiers to series recording had been dropped some months ago.  Can anyone suggest how to set up a recording to record just the 7pm ABC News? Previously I simply qualified it with at 7pm, once a day...all good. 

I have experimented with favourites, but cannot see anyway of limiting it to just the 7pm edition and avoiding picking up News Breakfast, News update, News overnight, and numerous other programs that begin with "ABC News".  Am I missing some bleeding obvious action somewhere?  At the moment the only option I can see is that of adding umpteen exclude qualifiers which seems a decidedly backward step.

TIA Alan.
General Discussions / iOS 9 bug ?
September 20, 2015, 08:25:16 AM
Despite doing app reset, etc after iOS 9 upgrade, the TV guide opens at the wrong time. That is, several hours in the past.  Very annoying.  This morning the penny dropped.  With the "Now" setting is opening at the UTC time.  As I sit here this morning, 8 am Sunday  in Sydney, the guide opens at 11 pm Saturday, which is the time in London.

Is it just me?


Ah yes, this is ver 2.22 on an ipad air2 in case it is relevant.
