Hi there, new user / subscriber here!
I am just setting up Channels DVR for the first time today alongside a newly purchased HDHomeRun, using my DS920+ as the Channels DVR server. The DS920+ is also a fresh install. I have several devices in the house which i'll be connecting, but initially i've set up my Apple TV and iPad Air.
I've set everything up, made sure channels is up to date and added the guide (I put my postcode in and chose 'freeview'). Once I did this, the database did it's work and downloaded the guide over the next 10 minutes or so.
Once complete, I installed Channels on my ATV and iPad.
At first, I thought everything was working great, however I noticed two issues.
If you click on the channel icon in the guide (which should bring up the 'on later' content for that channel), the content flicks up briefly, it then disappears and comes up with the error "It doesn't look like this channel has anything available". This happens on all channels and affects both my iPad and Apple TV. This is consistently broken for me.
On the web front end though, if I bring up the guide and click on one of the icons in the same way, the 'on later' content for the channel loads and there is no issue.
Secondly, the actual 'on later' option on the Apple TV (from the sidebar), is also not working - when you click on it you get the error "Nothing seems to be on...later.". On the iPad, it behaves a bit differently, it initially flashes up with the aforementioned error, but then loads the content. But after it loads, if you click on another option such as 'library' and and then on 'guide' again (which should load the 'on later' content') you get the error again. If you click on 'guide' at the top left and then 'on later' at the top right, it will initially error and load once again. A lot of the behaviour is predictable and easily replicated.
Again, on the web front end, all works fine.
I have already tried a delete and recreate of the DB. I also removed the guide and started again with that. I also removed channels completely, deleted all folders (as this is a new install) and started again from scratch. I've wiped the apps and data off the devices and installed them again, but I get the same behaviour every time. I've left it for several hours in case the DB was doing anything in the background and needed to finish, but no difference.
I have also tried the pre-release version but it behaves in the same way as the stable release from a couple of weeks back.
I couldn't find any other posts relating to this issue on the forum, except this one from just a couple of weeks ago:
This also mentions exactly the same issue, on the 3rd post and 8th post.
So i'm wondering if there is a bug here.
I don't know enough about Channels yet to know if this is an issue on the DVR side, or the app side.
Anyone have any suggestions?
