  1. Heard from Angela. She gave me a patch to test. Still not getting EPG data to fill in but not getting "server error" and series recordings I set up prior to the death of the EPG are back.
  2. I also use EyeTV Hybrids but I noted this: I ended up with two recordings of "Face the Nation". One that was a half hour long as XMLTV listed showed (last half hour pre-empted by an infomercial, error in listing). And one that was the correct full hour. This one may have gotten its data from the ATSC guide. Still poking at it. BTW Angela at Geniatech says they have a solution that is ready to test and offered me a chance to be tester. I said yes. Now crickets.
  3. Thanks to everyone! MyY system (4 EyeTV Hybrids, a MacPro 5,1 and an OTA antenna) is now running well. WisconsonEric"s pdf compilation and the appletoolbox link provided by him was all I needed. should consider adding link to pdf.
  4. WisconsinEric: First thank you for all of your hard work and the compiling of everyone else' work'. I am using your pdf (clear and concise technical writing) everything worked great until I got to step 2.4.2 then I got this when I tried to save . No library folder under my user name. My computer is a MacPro 5,1 running fully updated Mojave. I am the only user. My programing experience is one Fortran class in the early "70s.

  7. Back in September the company that was servicing our EPG with TV Guide data (Rovi) bought out TIVO and now operates under the TIVO name. These are the people we paid our subscription fees to and they are based in San Jose CA. TIVO may see the El Gato/Geniatech products as rivals to their DVRs. I asked an attorney about a class action lawsuit. I was told that "if the EULA contains an arbitration clause you're wasting your time." The EULA is nowhere to be found. If you can find it please post a link here. TIVO and TV Guide both go to great leangth not to communicate with customers. Just go to their websites and try to find "contact us" or "support". Angela (who may be a robot) is the only one who has answered me. Two weeks ago she said: Hello Mel,Sorry for the inconvenience.The restoration has been completed. We are testing it now. We will inform you immediately once it is finished testing. Kind regards,Angela Geniatech EyeTV Support Team

  9. Thank you WisconsonEric. My experience (AzMel) suggest that TIVO shut down our servers in early February 2019. As I was uninstalling/reinstalling EyeTV3 I noticed a company name ROVI as the EPG provider. ROVI was "acquired" by TIVO in the last quarter of 2018. My EPG updating also stoped in early February 2019. The trail of evidence that leads from TV Guide to ROVI to TIVO is a little hard to track down on the internet. Every "contact us" or "help" link at TV Guide is broken, if you try to go to ROVI.com you get redirected to TIVO and if you try to contact TIVO they will only talk to you if you are a business, consumers need not apply. Geniatech is the only company that can force TIVO to meet their contractual obligations. Unless there is a lawyer following this who knows a class action lawsuit when he/she sees one Search "EyeTV TIVO Class Action"
