Yellow status with one channel parse failed (both machines, hour apart, same channel).
Running "Update Guide Now" was successful on both machines.

Client GUI Tuninginfo appears to not use "natural" sort order.

TuningInfo is sorted simply by alpha-numeric. I don't do anything special with them. As you can see, there can be quite a number of different value in the tuninginfo (atsc, clearqam, cable, dbt-c, dbt-t, dbt-s, idsb, analog, ir). And then you can merge sources/channels like below.

Tuesday had one error for time on a CSPAN program, This morning two sets of programs failed for parse....

Looks like SD had another issue with the guide again. Wait and Watch....

I had 6 OTA channels with parsing errors this morning. SD says they had a glitch overnight.

Seems to be fixed now.

Hi. Just thought worth mentioning this behavior doesn't seem correct. I just manually reran the update and it ran fine, but seems that the status icon should not have been green after this sort of failure (with the failure likely due to ISP or SD maintenance):

3:21:00 - Beginning EPG123 update execution. 2021-03-04 09:21:00Z
3:21:03 - Failed to complete request. Exiting
3:21:03 - Did not receive a response from Schedules Direct for a token request.
3:21:03 - Failed to retrieve token from Schedules Direct. message: Did not receive a response from Schedules Direct for a token request.
3:21:03 - Failed to create MXF file. Exiting.

But then:

3:21:03 - Beginning epg123 client execution. 2021-03-04 09:21:03Z
3:22:33 - Successfully imported .mxf file into Media Center database. Exit code: 0
3:22:43 - Checked 32514 entries and corrected 0 of them.
3:22:43 - Completed the automatch of lineup stations to tuner channels.
3:22:43 - Completed lineup refresh.
3:22:43 - Successfully started the PvrScheduleTask task. Exit code: 0
3:22:43 - Successfully started the ReindexSearchRoot task. Exit code: 0
3:22:43 - MXF file was created on 3/3/2021 13:13:39
3:22:44 - Completed EPG123 client execution.

And status icon in tray was green afterward, despite the fact nothing was updated. Thanks for the continued work you put into EPG123.

The status icon in the tray is based on the date/timestamp of the mxf file and error code of the epg123client execution. Your failure was during building the mxf file, but since the client successfully imported the mxf file, and the file was less than 24 hours old, the tray determines it was successful.

For scheduled runs, if the client fails to import the mxf file, or the mxf file is older that 24 hours due to a failure during the creation of the file, then the tray status will be red.
