Quote from: vfwfw on March 20, 2011, 09:34:02 PMThe last couple a times I checked my recordings on the IceTV website most of the programs I have scheduled for recording have yellow warning signs next to them which have a message saying that there was an error in the recording.Does anyone khow what this is all about?

Does nobody know?This time of year it is because of the dst transition.Thanks to most pvrs being too stupid to add the correct gmt offset to the ice utc data, what the pvr reports back to Ice won't match what its really meant to record, so ice throws up the exclamation as it can't find the timers it asked to set when the pvr reports back next.
Quote from: prl on April 13, 2011, 10:03:44 AMI also occasionally get the yellow warning when the timer has actually been sent successfully (on Beyonwiz, I don't know whether that happens on Topfield).
Quote from: Andy Blazer at IceTV on April 18, 2011, 01:07:14 PMA common cause of these types of issues is trying to record too many shows during the same timeslot.Unfortunately some PVR's do not support or send us meaningful error reporting. In these cases, the yellow triangle "Recording Failure" is all that is displayed.

During the implementation phase I work closely with the engineers involved, often literally sitting beside them as they write their firmware.As a direct response to the, shall we say lax efforts, on the part of some of our partners we have mandated that accurate error reporting is required in order to gain certification from us. Unfortunately many models were developed prior to this requirement and are exempt from it.Rest assured that we are taking a far harder line on this these days and in time we hope to have all supported devices behaving well.
Quote from: GSpot on July 31, 2011, 02:04:20 PMSo is that a no? Seriously, I'm in the market for a new PVR, but I'm not going to waste my time if I keep having the same problems. The 7100 is listed as a supported device, yet no support is forthcoming. Should I assume that the 7100 is not suited to IceTV (although supported) and get a newer model that is, or can I expect to have the same problems and expect all concerned to play the blame game?
