  1. Are you sure you are replying to the correct post? This doesn't seem to have anything to do with the original post, and seems to be geared for Windows, not MacOS.
  2. My EyeTV 3 EPG was working earlier today, Monday, August 8, and I was able to schedule programs through Thursday, August 11 @ 4:30 AM. I could have continued but my dog was begging for attention. Now, I come back to it at 11:00 PM the same night, and my EPG is completely empty. and it says, "The Program Guide has no data to display." That is bizarre, as just a few hours earlier, it had two weeks of data to display. What gives?
  3. Correction: It's been more than two years!!!
  4. It's been more than a year since I posted this thread, and there has been no improvement of the EPG. There are still no descriptions of the programs, and the episode numbers don't show the season (series), and the episode names contain information that should be elsewhere. The episode titles are truncated ridiculously short. All in all, I still have to rely on an external program guide for everything other than the basic data: program name, episode name (partial), start and end date/time. This is not what I paid for. I paid for an electronic program guide that is at least what was advertised. I expect it to have the same capability that it had back in the days when it was powered by TitanTV. This is a joke. I would not recommend EyeTV to anyone, in its current state.
  5. Since upgrading to this new version, I have been experiencing issues that I haven't experienced before. The first that I noticed is that I have had to insert an antenna amplifier in order to get anywhere close to the number of stations that I picked up before the upgrade. Prior to the upgrade, I could pick up 36 stations without an amplifier. After the upgrade, without the amplifier, I could only pick up 12 stations, with the amplifier, 34 stations. The second issue is that now I notice that some programs that I record are not complete. The recordings claim to start on-time, but more often than not they start several minutes into the program, and the recording durations can be as little as a few seconds for a half-hour or hour program. Tonight I came home about a quarter hour before midnight and checked on the programs that I had recorded while I was gone. All the programs had completed just fine except the one that was still recording. It had started at 23:00 for an hour long program. It was about 46 minutes into the program, but EyeTV had only recorded 14 minutes of it, and the time was not advancing. I stopped the recording and began looking through it. It cut in a few minutes into the program, recorded about 2 minutes, then skipped ahead and recorded a minute or two, then skipped ahead and recorded a few more minutes, then skipped ahead, and so on until it I stopped the recording. Normally, in previous versions of EyeTV, if there were broadcast dropouts, EyeTV would continue recording, and there would just be a black screen until the broadcast video resumed. Now, it just skips ahead with no black screen. So, I don't think broadcast dropouts are causing this problem. And since this wasn't occurring before the upgrade, I'm suspicious that this version of EyeTV may have a bug in it. I have changed nothing else in my hardware/software configuration other than upgrading EyeTV. The addition of the amplifier doesn't appear to affect the skipping one way or the other. It skips with or without the amplifier. But, the quality of the recordings are better with the amplifier. (And, of course, I get more stations.) My setup: Mac Mini Server (Mid 2011) running macOS Sierra (10.12.6) and EyeTV 3.6.9 (7530), Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-950Q, Dual Leaf Antennae with Philips Antenna Amplifier. This has always given me near perfect reception without the antenna amplifier before I upgraded to the latest EyeTV3. Is anyone else having either of the two issues I'm having with EyeTV 3.6.9 (7530)?
  6. I am having the same issue. I don't use EyeTV 4 because it won't work on my Mac. So, I only have access to EyeTV 3, and the EPG is not functioning as of yesterday.
  7. According to the description in EyeTV renewal dialog, the EPG is supposed to provide a detailed description of each program. It does not. It provides exactly NO description of any of the programs listed. Of course, once you click on the renewal link in EyeTV, and you're brought to the online product page, there is no product description, so it's really bait and switch. This EPG is no better than xmltv, and provides even less information. In addition to providing NO program descriptions, episode numbers lack the season/series number, so you have no idea what season/series of the program you're watching. And I still have to refer to multiple external programming guides to figure out what programs are coming up, so I can decide what I want to watch. Also, the episode titles are truncated! Hey, this is 2020, fields can be longer than 36 characters! This is not what I paid for. I paid for a fully functional programming guide. This is rubbish.
  8. I was going through my recorded programs and editing program information to add episode number and title information, when suddenly the edit info window failed to appear. Now, anytime I click anywhere on the EyeTV Programs window (including the window open/close/minimize widgets), or issue a keyboard command, it simply beeps and nothing else happens. The main EyeTV menu is greyed out and right-clicking also results in a beep. There are some menu items that are not greyed out, such as the entire Apple menu, which is fully functional, "EyeTV Help", under the Help menu, and the "Hide EyeTV", Hide Others, and Show All, under the EyeTV menu. I can "hide" EyeTV, but the EyeTV Programs window doesn't actually hide. But, neither does it come to the foreground when I "show" EyeTV, again. I have to move or minimize any windows that were in the foreground, and, of course, it beeps when I click on the Programs window. When I right-click on the EyeTV icon in the Dock, and choose "Show All Windows", the "invisible" or "phantom" window becomes "visible": the EyeTV Programs window moves to the right side, with the window title underneath, and the "invisible" window moves to the left, with another "EyeTV Programs" title underneath. The "invisible" window can't be seen, so it's just an empty space, with only the window title visible. Neither window can be chosen -- again with a beep. Meanwhile, EyeTV continues to record scheduled programs, so I'm not missing anything while the program interface is blocked. I know this because I can see the file list changing in the Finder, as the recordings progress. It has recorded six programs since all of this started. I would normally just kill EyeTV and relaunch, as I have done before, but I have a rather long chain of scheduled recordings ahead of this, and I don't want to perform the usual trick to end the shenanigans. Has anyone else experienced this? Does anyone know how to escape this situation without force-quitting the app? I would list EyeTV version info, but the "About EyeTV" is inaccessible. Finder reports it as v3.6.9. I'm running Mac OS X Sierra (10.12.5) on a Mac Mini Server (mid-2011).
