  1. I am surprised you have not had problems until now. It is looking like they are abandoning TVGuide for their own service. You will need the latest version of EyeTV so no HDHomerun tuners. There is a beta out there, not sure if it is officially released yet.
  2. If you rearrange the list of schedules in the left hand pane it can cause multiple schedules in the Archive folder. If you quit and restart EyeTV it will read the multiple schedules and you will get multiple recordings.
  3. My EyeTV Archive is not on my boot drive. Somewhere in the preferences you can identify where the folder lives. I have had mine on a non-boot drive for years with no problems.
  4. You can also put the Library folder in the side bar of the finder window. Then if the Library folder is ever hidden again the shortcut in the sidebar is still there.
  5. It looks like some others are having problems with hidden characters. I fought this for days trying to get mine up and running. I would get it working then make another edit for one reason or another and it would get hidden characters again. Here is a terminal code that fixed my files tr -d '\r' <ProblemFileName> NewFileName This will generate a new file named with NewFileName. You can then delete the problem file.
  6. I am also using the "JSON" service. This gives you data very similar to TVGuide. The other service lacks season and episode data. This is the -J tag not the -T tag when downloading the EPG.
  7. Too little too late for me. The EPG I got during my 7 day free trial with schedulesdirect ended this weekend. I paid for a year and now have fully functional EPG with the same information as TVGuide but no longer dependent of Geniatech to get it to me. I only had another month left on my TVGuide subscription so I am not out much.
  8. If you want an alternative look at pages about 3-6 in the TV Guide not updating thread.
  9. Thanks for that little tidbit. If OTA gets a non-recording flag them I am out. Spectrum has scrambled every channel in my area so I am recording OTA. If they end up blocking that then I am SOL.
  10. This is all rumor but look at the history since Geniatech bought this software. The first thing they did was drop HDHomeRun support. From my limited information I think that mostly affected the USA market. This could also have something to do with Silicon Dust developing a competitive product to EyeTV. Either way they have pissed off a large section of the US market. Now with the loss of TVGuide it seemed like another slap to the US market. Seeing people in the UK also having EPG problems led me to wonder how well Geniatech can stay in this business.
  11. If your smart guides use more than just show name you need to use the -J tag not the -T tag for SchedulesDirect. From what others have said it sounds like XMLTV gives season/episode info also but I have not explored that source. ./mc2xml -J username:password -c us -g 62260 Season/Episode info like TVGuide 14-17-Day EPG ./mc2xml -T username:password limited Season/Episode info also only a 7-day EPG As the original poster of this thread it has done exactly what I had hoped. It sparked a discussion on the loss of TVGuide and ways to fix it. This thread has gotten large but not impossible to navigate. By page 5 you should have had all the information you needed to get an alternative EPG. Several people have worked very hard to describe how to get these alternate EPGs and some others have aggregated the info and posted a guide. There is a currently shorter thread in the TVGuide section of the forum with similar information. For the newcomers to this thread that feel it is too long maybe your contribution can be starting a new thread referencing what you think is pertinent in this thread.
  12. I think someone posted a week ago that Angela said it was going to be fixed in a week. So which week will it get fixed?
  13. If you are running into strange errors with the bash script try this in terminal: tr -d '\r' <FileWithCarriageReturns> FileWithOutCarriageReturns I have no idea where my script acquired the carriage returns but I had the hardest time getting the script to work before running the tr command.
  14. I also just tried to see if the script would run from a launch agent and it did. Genietech has a couple weeks to see if they can negotiate with TV Guide before I need to pay for schedules direct. Other than a carriage return issue this was simple to get up and running. If they get TV Guide running I will have to decide once my subscription is up if it is worth relying on Genietech anymore.
  15. There really isn't any elaborate coding. I understand it is not a simple GUI process but my problems ended up being simple once found. My issue was carriage returns in the code. A little searching found tr -d '\r' <FileWithCarraigeReturns> FileWithOutCarraigeReturns fixed the problem.
