It's been my experience that EPG123 waits exactly 4 minutes after the scheduled end time of the recording before it restarts the import.

Actually, I looked at the code and it is 1 minute. You forgot to account for the 3 minutes of padding in the recording.

Attaching a snippet of the log, showing "normal" 2AM updates for 92 stations on 3/15 and 3/16. Then about 3:54PM on 3/16 I did my EPG123 update to version 1.1.21 and my correction to the channel lineups (resulting in 87 stations), and SAVE+EXIT. That was when I saw the missing import because my 3PM-4PM recording was still going, and when I then manually stopped WMC doing that recording. And it was here (at about 3:59PM) that the expected MXF import didn't kick off.

Looking at the log, it looks like maybe I was too close to the start of the next scheduled recording, which was 4:00PM-5:00PM. Perhaps this "getting started" proximity is what actually prevented what otherwise WOULD have kicked off the Guide import into WMC.

I'm also including the next automatic 2AM update after that, to again show normal behavior.

The problem appears to be that the episode titles that are added to the new series have double-quotes around them, while the existing series that still work do not.

One and only one of my old series recordings lost all future recording entries. To fix this I simply deleted the series recording and created a new series recording for the same series. All future recording reappeared. Nothing like this has happened on subsequent epg123 [V1.1.21] runs.

Got this identified and fixed in v1.1.25. Unfortunately, that may mean you will have to recreate these series requests again.

On 12/17/2017 you created the series recording from the detail screen of the premiere episode of season 11 (s11e01) airing on 1/4/2018. It was set up for New episodes only, any day, any time, channel 103 only.
Code: Select all
  <SeriesRequest prototypicalProgram="!Program!EP00080955_0226" prototypicalService="!Service!EPG123_36009" channel="00006" series="!Series!00080955" creationTime="2017-12-17T01:31:46.5512173Z" sourceName="" complete="true" prototypicalStartTime="2018-01-04T04:00:00Z" prototypicalDuration="PT1H" prototypicalLanguage="English" prototypicalTitle="The X-Files" prototypicalIsHdtv="true" prototypicalChannelNumber="103" anyChannel="false" anyLanguage="false" contentQualityPreference="0" scheduleLimit="0" tooManyScheduled="false" sourceTypeFilter="" prePaddingRequired="PT0S" prePaddingRequested="PT2M" postPaddingRequired="PT0S" postPaddingRequested="PT3M" keepLength="-1" quality="3" isRecurring="false" recordingLimit="-1" runType="1" anyTime="true" dayOfWeekMask="127" airtime="PT0S" airtimeValid="false">
    <priorityToken priority="18688" />
  </SeriesRequest>

What is interesting in looking at the rest of your series requests is, "The X-Files" is the ONLY request that was created in this method. It looks like the rest of your requests were done by a title/category search to include your new series request for "The X-Files" on 3/14/2018.
Code: Select all
  <SeriesRequest creationTime="2018-03-14T01:22:11.3402188Z" sourceName="" complete="false" prototypicalStartTime="0001-01-01T00:00:00Z" prototypicalDuration="PT0S" prototypicalLanguage="" prototypicalTitle="" prototypicalIsHdtv="false" prototypicalChannelNumber="" anyChannel="true" anyLanguage="true" contentQualityPreference="1" scheduleLimit="0" tooManyScheduled="false" sourceTypeFilter="" prePaddingRequired="PT0S" prePaddingRequested="PT2M" postPaddingRequired="PT0S" postPaddingRequested="PT3M" keepLength="-1" quality="3" isRecurring="false" recordingLimit="-1" runType="1" anyTime="true" dayOfWeekMask="127" airtime="PT0S" airtimeValid="false">

    <series uid="!Series!00080955" title="The X-Files" shortTitle="" shortDescription="FBI special agents probe cases involving phenomena that defy conventional explanations." studio="" startAirdate="0001-01-01T00:00:00Z" endAirdate="0001-01-01T00:00:00Z" year="0">
      <description>In one of the longest-running science fiction series in network TV history, FBI special agents investigate unexplained, mind-bending cases known as "X-Files." Though the government is convinced that the outlandish reports are false, conspiracy theorist Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and realist Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson), for most of the series, stop at nothing to prove that "the truth is out there." Series creator Chris Carter also serves as executive producer of the thrilling pop-culture phenomenon.</description>
    </series>
  </SeriesRequest>

I've suspected in the past that creating series requests from an episode can cause some problems, and this would be the strongest evidence for that but I still can't say for certain. I do know that this has happened before in the past even before EPG123 and/or Rovi.

This is the best theory I can come up with. I don't believe there is anything EPG123 could be causing or do anything about. My opinion is this is another WMC quirk that we have to deal with.

Have a little better understanding of this now. It is all about the prototypical stuff in the series request. If you use an episode to create a series request, as opposed to a title search, the prototypical attributes are set according to that episode. If a prototypical attribute, such as prototypicalLanguage, is populated, then all episodes will have to have the same language value in order to be recorded. If you use a search to create your recording request, none of the prototypical attributes are set so all values would be accepted.

I'm intrigued as to what rimmel's language code was under v1.1.24, as I think they are based in the USA and so wouldn't have en-GB.

I just installed 1.1.25, and now it appears I CANNOT setup a recording for a previously scheduled recording. I had scheduled the series Chicago Fire, went in and canceled the series request, but now when I try to record this series, it will not allow me to record....I hit the record button, nothing happens, open in the guide and hit record series still nothing!

This sounds like something different. In WMC, go to settings->Guide->Edit Channels, select the channel Chicago Fire runs on and click Edit Sources. Make sure all the sources (tuners) are checked. These enabled tuners are strictly for recordings and do not affect watching.

I was thinking about that myself but can only think that there was another prototypical entry that was different for some reason. Though the only thing that changed was the language... maybe it does have a locale associated with it?

@rimmel: could you let me know what your lineup is so I can take a peek at the X-Files series? I'd like to know why yours failed... we can answer the others.

I don't know if this matters, but the X-Files season finale was last night, So there will be no further episodes for this series in the current guide. That being said my lineup name is "Comcast Spokane/Inland Northwest - Digital" and LineupID is "USA-WA46544-X". Another thing of interest is that I deleted and recreated the X-Files series record mentioned in a previous post using V1.1.21 and the title/category search dialog on 3/14/2018. The final two episodes reappeared in the guide and recorded fine. Is that prototypical?

Thanks! Rebooting the computer seems to have resolved the problem.

Other then that one week of guide outage with Windows free guide. Is there a big difference in paying $ 25 for this ?

Wat? I guess you haven't been following the EPG forum. The guide info provided by MS/Rovi has been a train wreck the last few years.

EPG123/SD provides accurate and reliable guide data. Worth every penny of $25.

It also offers new features and re-enables features that WMC used to have but were lost with the shoddy migration to the new provider (TiVo/Rovi).

Check out the Gallery on the EPG123 website to see some of the features that you don't have using the free data.

For me it's been the difference between night and day and I live in a large metropolitan city that you'd think would be prioritized.

As I said in another thread, EPG123 and SD are not only good, they're good FOR you (and really reasonably priced)!

Hi, I signed up for the EPG123 and Schedules Direct a week ago. What I noticed about recording the NBA Playoffs, it doesn't have the info details on what teams are playing. I just randomly record thats says NBA Playoff on the channel guide. Is this normal?

No, not normal. Playoff games tend to get updated at the last minute, but they are usually updated before going live. Are you sure you are updating the guide on a schedule? If you look at the scheduled task status in either of the EPG123 GUI's, it will tell you last time it was run and if it was a success (Exit: 0x00000000).

I've looked at all the future NBA games and they are as populated as can be during the semifinals. Those games not yet populated are TBA pending previous games.

EDIT: For what it's worth, the Rovi guide data just says "A conference semifinal" for all the games.

I Just recorded a game right now. I think this is not live but it says "All the latest action from the NBA game" I took a screen shot but I couldn't find any option on the TGB to upload the screen shot?

Yah, that is definitely what a TBA game looks like in the guide ... though the first one in my guide isn't until Thursday.

That leaves the question of whether your guide is being updated by the update task. Did you set the task up to "Automatically import..." / "Full Mode" ? Did it run successfully?
