IceTV EPG Content / Guide for TVS Sydney
« on: March 09, 2010, 03:13:32 PM »
TVS in Sydney have started transmitting on digital frequencies.


Can you tell me if and when ICETV will be including TVS in the EPG?

IceTV EPG Content / Dateline SBS Repeat
« on: February 03, 2009, 07:20:49 PM »

On the Sydney EPG, I notice that Dateline on SBS is being shown twice

Channel : SBS
Dateline (Jerusalem's Shimon Peres) Sun, 8 Feb at 08:30 PM
Dateline (Jerusalem's Shimon Peres) Mon, 9 Feb at 02:30 PM

The Second dateline on Monday is not marked as a Repeat.

I notice, because I have a filter to only record ones that are not repeats.

Thanks for the great service

That works great. I'm using it with the the "desc_length=0" option so that I get the whole guide. btw I use it with the DVB websheduler software, and the full descriptions into it fine.

I'll post a message on the webscheduler forum to let other icetv/webscheduler anout this new parameter.

Thanks heaps

ok, that explains it. it's intentially truncated for compatability with some pvr's.

Is there any way I can get the full descriptions? it seems a shame that ivetv has longer descriptions in their database, but it's truncated at delivery. could we have an option on the url? or a setting under "my account".

or get the content creators to respect the 512 limit, so the descriptions don't end mid sentence.

I download my xmltv epg from

For some epg items it looks like the descritions <desc> are truncated. It only appears if the descriptions would be quite long. an example is:-

<programme start="20080309093000 +0000" stop="20080309111500 +0000" channel="2" clumpidx="0/1">
<title lang="en">Jekyll</title>
<desc lang="en">Part conspiracy thriller, part comic horror, Steven Moffat's extraordinary retelling of the Robert Louis Stevenson classic takes the ultimate tale of inner conflict to unforgettable new heights. James Nesbitt, Michelle Ryan, Gina Bellman, Denis Lawson. There's a new Dr Jekyll, with an old problem - Mr Hyde. But the pair have a deal - a body share - and an impossible life is somehow lived. What Hyde doesn't know is that Jekyll is married. There's a wife and two children he'll do</desc>
