Re: No data after 5PM tomorrow (Wed Oct 14, 2020)

For my part (under Windows) I'm not doing anything clever except spoofing the date, however, as the RunAsDate thing does not change the system date I guess it's possible that mc2xml is still seeing the 'real' date when it fetches its data. Indeed, just now, mc2xml reported: Start time .. : 2020-10-1...

Re: No data after 5PM tomorrow (Wed Oct 14, 2020)

Some (most?) versions of mc2xml expired on 30th October 2020. I haven't been able to find a working version for Windows. Instead, I've been using Nirsoft's RunAsDate to spoof the date. This involves creating a bat file that alters the date as it launches mcsxml.exe, something like this: C:\Nirsoft\R...

Re: mc2xml.exe FAIL

My version v1.7 for Windows didn't fix the problem. I'm having to use Nirsoft's RunAsDate to spoof the date. Where did you download the latest mc2xml.exe? The mc2xml website now redirects to the Wayback Machine.

Thanks,
Ben.

Re: GBR lineup re-alignment

...so that we can determine if the mapping has been updated. Feel free to use my ticket #16328 of the 18th December 2017. You can use it to check if the Oxford transmitter mappings have been updated. I can confirm that OX3 (this is the postcode area for the Oxford Freeview transmitter) provides: BB...

I think we're waiting on this: GBR lineup re-alignment

As the 4th February has been and gone I'm assuming that it is still a work in progress.

My guess would be 87840 - BBC1 HD (London)

Re: Lineup identifiers in GBR are changing on 2017-12-15

Is the misaligned regions thing dead in the water? Nothing seems to have changed. Is it possible to produce a list of which BBC1 and ITV1 region is provided with each transmitter lineup? That way we could at least pick the best (least worst?) lineup regardless of our postcode area. For example: GBR-...

Re: Lineup identifiers in GBR are changing on 2017-12-15

Schedules Direct offers a list of Transmitter / Lineup. It's up to the application to present your the list as an alternative to using the postal code method. I also think the problem is, for example, that GBR-1000083-DEFAULT is covering way to much area. "Bluebell Hill":"GBR-1000083-DEFAULT" "Dove...

Re: Lineup identifiers in GBR are changing on 2017-12-15

Am I completely misunderstanding this issue? I'm also using mc2xml (schedules direct json) and I'm struggling with the changes. I am alternating between getting this: Account status: 4/4 lineups Deleted lineup: The server has deleted this lineup Error ........: Delete mc2xml.dat and re-select a lin...
