I have never found it necessary to set daily scheduled reminders to prevent the EPG from becoming stale while on holiday, as long as you have a number of scheduled recordings taking place during your absence.The disable-ota package is less necessary now, but still desirable (see Preventing External Events from Disturbing the CF - click), and a daily scheduled reminder (actually a pair of them) is necessary to prevent the EPG becoming stale while you are on holiday. disable-ota has a setting under WebIF >> Settings to select whether you want it to set up a reminder or not - my bet is that it is set to "yes". Set it to "no" and manually delete the 0420 reminder from your schedule, or (preferred) edit the 0420 reminder to whatever service you want at the start of the day and set up another daily reminder for 0400-0420 on a different service (eg 200) - this is the strategy required to prevent the EPG going stale and your unit failing to record anything after a week.
That's OK as long as the unit is power cycling. If it's left on, the EPG goes stale.I have never found it necessary to set daily scheduled reminders to prevent the EPG from becoming stale while on holiday, as long as you have a number of scheduled recordings taking place during your absence.
1. Have you set up the boot-settings package in WebIF >> Settings? What channel did you set there?same result this morning despite adding the boot settings, did this before i saw black hole's detailed reply tho, what have i done wrong??
just ran the fixflashpackages thing
i guess its a simple solution to leave it on 200, but its the favourites not being set that peeves me every day, again not a biggie tho!
