So I have the latest version of interactive loaded, guide data is showing up fine in mce, all of my channels have the "-IceTV" listing....but no recordings I make via the website show up on mce, and none of the recordings I set from within MCE show up on my interactive website page.

Can anyone suggest where I might start in order to correct this?



In the Interactive client there is a drop box where you can select "Guide Only" or another option. Make sure the setting isn't on Guide Only.


I too have the same problem.  I've checked to make sure "guide only" isn't selected.  I currently have 2 PC's and I can't get either of them to start recording via the interactive site.  This is all brand new to me so I'm not sure what info to include for troubleshooting purporses.

1st PC:
Vista MC.
3 x tuners - (1x Hauppauge 2200MCE and 1 x Leadtek DVT1000 T)
I have successfully set these up and have manually recorded 3 seperate shows via the VMC interface.

2nd PC
Win 7 Pro
1 x tuner - (1x winfast DTV1800)

The guide listings are definitely setup correctly in the win7 machine, I'm not so sure about the Vista machine though.  Any help would be appreciated!!


Did you setup devices for each in your account settings, and did you triple check the client is selecting this device, rather than "guide only"?
Windows7 finally supports EIT guides, perhaps in both you have not selected the ICE channels in the channel mapping of the media centre, thus blank for Vista, and actually EIT for Windows7, and not ICE for either.    For Windows7, you have to go to each channel and choose "edit" and make sure you see the -ICEtv at the end of the channel name, else it won't be getting ICE EPG for that channel.   Vista may be the same.

Also, I know for the Widget & Beyonwiz, you have to go thru a "fetch token" type pairing, and IIRC, the Interactive client requires to do that also.

Beyonwiz DP-S1 & Topfield 5K (using PerlTGD to upload ICE EPG/timers for the 5K, normal ICE interactive for the Wiz).
