Thanks Alison.

The future episode details now appear to be correct on ICE.

A new (old) series of Anthony Bourdain - No Reservations started three weeks ago on the Food Network.  The ICE guide has shown incorrect Episode Names and Content for all three episodes (and their repeats).  Can someone at ICE please fix this going forward - the correct episode details have been shown in the SBS broadcast guide information.

I have now installed v20 too, but my PC is still locking up at least once a day.

I'll give that a try once you have a properly working version (the thread says it isn't yet functional).  I'm not a computer expert, so am not keen to be a guinea pig for versions that aren't well tested.  However, it does look like it will address my (now old) issue of Interactive shutting down immediately upon loading - although this hasn't happened in a while, so may have resolved itself.

I still have random lock-up's happening that can only be fixed with the "off" button - hopefully these will go away with the new version of Interactive.  My current version of Interactive (since I recently re-installed it) also has a blank grey screen on the event log page - it doesn't seem to impact performance, but I'm hoping the new version will also fix this.

I uninstalled and reinstalled Interactive and it still falls over everytime I reboot.

I logged my problem directly with IceTV over a week ago and have not yet heard back from them - does it normally take over a week to get a response?  >:(

Further to my earlier post, I am now getting random crashes every hour or two - the PC completely freezes and the only way out is to hit the "off" button and reboot.  I've turned Interactive off again annd will see if this stops the freezing.

For the past week, everytime I reboot my Windows XP MCE PC, Interactive loads during startup and then immediately crashes with an "On Thread Exception 1" error.  The full text of the error (from the Interactive Event Log) is shown at the end of this post.  Interactive runs quite happily if I manually load it immediately after it crashes.

There is also an Application error in the Microsoft Event Viewer that mentions Interactive - it says the source of that error is the .NET Runtime 2.0 environment.

A week ago I installed a new wireless network adapter (Netgear WN311B) as well as a handful of XP updates, so I'm guessing this might have something to do with it - watching the system tray icons, Interactive appears to crash just as the adapter links to the router.

Is this something that can be easily fixed, or should I just remove and reinstall Interactive?  Could a reinstall of Interactive potentially create conflicts with my adapter and hinder its funtioning?  I'd obviously like to avoid that!

Windows Vista Media Center / Re: Guide issues with SBS name change?
« on: June 05, 2009, 01:52:15 AM »
My guide was also completely scrambled today and I tried fixing it myself ahead of seeing the Email from ICE.  I simply re-mapped the channels to the guide listing and then had to set most of my series recordings to record from "any channel" instead of the incorrect one it was still showing.

What I didn't do was "Restore Channel Defaults" - will this bite me on the bum later?  Should I go back and do that now or is it too late because I have already re-mapped my guide?  Exactly which "default" does it reset to anyway?  If I run it now will I be able to go back to my series recordings and switch them back to record from the correct specific channel (as opposed to "any channel")?

Weird, I have always had MS Update switched on and the daylight saving patch was automatically installed last December - however, my PC still got confused this week.  I have ended up having to uninstall and re-install that patch and my PC now has the correct time.

I then got charlotte's problem of all scheduled recordings for the rest of this week being an hour ahead of correct time.  I have just deleted and rescheduled these series and all looks fine now.

My inability to synch with internet time appears to be unrelated.  I fixed that separately though.

Hmmm, ran that link and no luck.  One of my three PC's thinks that daylight saving ended this weekend.  Also tried running a Microsoft "cumulative Dec 2008" patch for DST issues (KB 955839), but wouldn't let me because it said the patch was already installed (probably the one above).

My time zone is definitely set to Sydney and I have rebooted a couple of times and sychronised the time with the Windows website, but it still thinks daylight saving has finished.  Unless anyone has any great ideas, I think I will just leave it for a week until the rest of NSW catches up with my errant PC! - all the Guide times are an hour early too, so I shouldn't miss any shows.

Ah, have just realised that if it is using the GMT offset, I should just leave my PC clock as the incorrectly adjusted standard time and then the guide will need to be one hour forward.  All should then record at the right time and the clock will catch up when daylight savings actually ends.

My problem is possibly being driven by my PC not properly syncronising with internet time at the moment (even when I ask it to do so manually) - now just have to figure out why that is...

I've got exactly the same problem with my MCE2005.

I tried resetting the time manually on the pc and reloading the guide data - still out by an hour though.

Any ideas anyone?
