Diminishing Listings

Post#1 » Fri Apr 21, 2017 11:52 pm

I have noticed that during the last two weeks or so, I am getting fewer listings than before. Some days I am down to 17 days out of 21, on others it will download most of the 21, but half of the channels will not contain data. There are no errors showing up on the epg123 log.

Is anyone else having a problem with this?

I believe SD's position is they will guarantee 14 days worth, but will of course provide more if available from their source. The number of days available has been typically 21 for all channels, but I verified with my lineup that some channels have less than 21.

Just for clarification, what do you mean by half of the channels will not contain data? Do you mean no new data? or no data at all?

I get the "No Data Available" message. I have been using epg123 and SD for about a year and a half, and this is new. I expect it for local channels, but this is for such things as CNN and Turner Classic Movies. Not a big deal, but just wondered if there had been a change to SD that anyone had heard about...

Try using the epg123Client to unsubscribe and re-subscribe one of the problem channels. I've got TCMHD in my lineup without issue.

Also, please check epg123 GUI and make sure TCM and CNN are selected. I'm wondering if you lineup changed a little and you are no longer downloading those stations.

Time for a wild guess.......Check your TIME in windows and also in the BIOS.

For unrelated reasons, I had to reinstall WMC and epg123, so I am fairly sure that they are working on all channels, and the time is correct. I am just getting uncomfortable flashbacks to the reason I changed to epg123 in the first place: creeping guide erosion....

We (epg123 & Schedules Direct) are certainly not without errors, but when they pop up we get them resolved quickly. Getting reports like this from observant users certainly helps with that.

Since you mentioned TMC and CNN specifically, I just requested 21 days from both and here are the results.

TMCHD (64312) listings go to 5/11 1530GMT.
CNNHD (58646) listings go to 5/12 2100GMT.

If this is not the case for you, then the problem is not the feed from SD, but a problem with your epg123, configuration, or WMC.

I ran epg123 again, and this time got this error:

Any errors in event viewer at about the same time.

No event viewer errors.
I ran the update again this morning, and this time it got up to 20 days, which is an improvement. Some of the channels stop on Tuesday 10th at 9:00 am, such as Cinemax, BBC America, and ESPN: others, such as TMC, on the 11th at 11:30 am. This is not a major problem, and I'll see if it corrects itself over the next few days, or gets worse.
Parenthetically, I am also getting the mp2/mp4 "black screen, just audio" problem, but I assume this is Comcast messing with some of the Standard Def channels. That for another day....

The problem seems to be back... I have noticed over the last week that I have been losing guide data. I am nominally down to 17 days -- because Comedy Central is updated to Thursday 29th, but all the rest of the channels end on Monday 26th.

I have tried reloading multiple times, and have updated to the latest version. I have not changed any of the settings, except to delete the old scheduled task and replace it with a new one. I am not getting any error messages, but I am also not getting any more data. Is there something else I should be trying, or might this be a SD issue?

Schedules Direct is currently limiting the listings to 7 days in advance until Gracenote resolves their issues.

Are these upstream issues common? I haven't been around that long to know the history but I sometimes wonder if getting timely program guides from any source has become one big cluster.

I've been using Schedules Direct/Gracenote for nearly 2 years now and as far as upstream problems they've been minor, isolated, and typically corrected very quickly. Other than this episode, there was a problem earlier this year (February?) where Gracenote changed their API for video properties, but it was not the same as advertised to, or understood by Schedules Direct. For epg123, that meant the responses flowed to us were unexpected/malformed and updates were aborted. Schedules Direct had a fix out pretty quick on that but it took a while to correct some of the already cached data.

So no, issues are not common. Those issues that do occur either at Gracenote, SD, or EPG123 or usually resolved within hours.
