    UK TV Guide Missing station data

    How many ways can you skin a cat? Well here's 2 more besides cron daemon: https://developer.apple.com/library/content/documentation/MacOSX/Conceptual/BPSystemStartup/Chapters/CreatingLaunchdJobs.html https://superuser.com/questions/1253244/run-applescript-at-a-specific-second (Uses Calendar app to run AppleScript every day) I'm favouring launcd as I already have some at startup & shutdown.

    Rodolphe, Thanks a bunch! Have things working manually using 'curl' instead of 'wget' as 'wget' not native on OS X. xmldv.co.uk running now. Going to look at implementing using Apple Script. Will publish when working. Cheers, Old Goat

    Hi, Would you mind sharing your script and how to implement it?

    UK TV Guide Missing station data

    Problem still exists for me in spite of bitching at GeniaTech multiple times about it. I also find that the DVB system seems to be broken also with some channels just blank. If I wasn't so happy with my Netstream 4Sat, I'd ditch EyeTV. Think I'll start looking for an alternative but other than the Gracenote being rubbish it does everything I want.

    Gracenote Missing Programs

    This problem seems to come and go randomly. Yesterday I had gaps in the schedule for 3 or 4 stations but manually updating retrieved them. Quite frankly, once my subscription to Gracenote expires, I'll not be renewing it. It certainly is not worth the money.

    Gracenote Missing Programs

    For the past 2 or 3 days the Gracenote program service has been missing random program schedules. This seems to happen regularly which is most irritating. Anyone have a clue as to the current situation?
  7. That's a bugger! Oh well, all's well that ends well.
  8. Well done!! Alright, give over, what was the glitch? OK, you don't have to tell us.
  9. Hi Ton, That's a bugger! I don't have a 4C nor Cable feed so I can't have a play. I don't suppose you live anywhere near South East Scotland? I've just about always found in these situations that it's something one keeps overlooking in the process like me with the version numbers. I was sure I had the latest version of EyeTV but of course was way out. About the only thing you can do is to go back over the process step by step questioning "everything". What's known as the Scientific Method. If you want a small treatise on the Scientific method, read Robert M. Pirsig's Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. Might take awhile (Especially reading the book) but you just might get there in the end and have some fun along the way. Good Luck, OldGoat
  10. Sorry, didn't mean they had to start at the same time, just have 4 overlap at some point. Also didn't realise you had a 4C. Assumed a 4SAT as that is the topic of this discussion. Don't know if there is enough difference to cause a problem. Not sure if I can be of any further help but ask away if you like
  11. Hi Ton, Think I may have found your problem. When you tried to record 4 channels, did you go the the Program Guide and click on the record button for each channel? If so, try scheduling 4 channels such that they will all be recording at the same time. I can only record 2 channels by clicking on the record buttons. Also may be another issue in that my screen shots of connecting to the unit are a bit different from yours. I can't get, just .../status and it's not as pretty as yours!
  12. Also are you sure you used defaults write com.elgato.eyetv “max SAT2IP tuners” -int 4 I I think someone edited the original posting by Vanessa because I copied the command from her posting and it didn't work because it has SAT-IP instead of SAT2IP in it. and not defaults write com.elgato.eyetv “max SAT-IP tuners” -int 4 You can check to see if it has worked by ~ $ defaults read com.elgato.eyetv | grep SAT2IP "max SAT2IP tuners" = 4; Some people have no understanding of the imperative to make things work correctly!! ;-)
  13. Hi Ton, Possibly, you should check. See https://www.geniatech.eu/eyetv/faq/eyetv-netstream-4sat-firmware-update/ You could also do a reset on the Netstream. See https://www.geniatech.eu/eyetv/faq/eyetv-netstream-4sat-reset-procedure/ That might require updating firmware.
  14. Hi Ton, Did you do the defaults write com.elgato.eyetv “max SAT2IP tuners” -int 4 command afterward?
  15. @Ton You must remove any EtyTV or Elgato (EyeConnect files and do a clean install of EyeTV. Besides running the EyeTV Reporter remove anything having to do with eyeTV or Elegato in /Library. It took me 3 times to get it right so persevere.
