TVGuide has changed. The setup URL is now http://tvguide.com/myprofile/setup/localizeus.asp

In addition, I still can't get this thing to work, once I copy the URL from the listings page. What's going on? Does it need an update? I'd love to use it.

all I get when I try to update is "currently unavailable"

Sorry, I write this twice.


OK now I setup my cable provider, and I am seeing my listing at:
http://www.tvguide.com/listings/

I drugged above URL to the option window, pushed "Save", then chose "Update Now."
Yes, I see in-traffic after I chose Update Now.

Still, I choose "Favorite", I get an alert: "A guide must first be downloaded."

What am I doing wrong.

Thanks.

I have trouble to set up this baby.
When I click on the URL: http://www.tvguide.com/listings/setup/localize.asp

in the option window, neither Safari nor IE doesn't show anything. Blank sheet.

Is that because my version of Safari (1.0.3, v85.8), which I believe latest for Jaguar, or ?

Any suggestion?
Thanks.

the URL is bad.

if you remove "/localize.asp" from the URL, it works.

I don't suppose this lil app can be rewritten so us Canadians can also benefit from such convenience? I've set it up as it says... and selected "update now" but it still says it's unavailable. *sigh* It sounds like a really great app!

works very well... i live in Mexico and this thing sure is handy to check all the cable TV listings... it would be nice if the "Options" window accepted a simple copy 'n paste entry of the needed TVGuide URL instead of only accepting a drag 'n drop entry of that necessary URL, but that is truly a minor issue.

Fantastic! I, too, have been getting the "12:00 as 1:00" bug, which is obtrusive for me as I usually watch my TV late at night while on my iMac, but as the developer promises to fix that I have no compunction about naming this my favourite not-totally-necessary utility of the year so far! Thanks a heap, and keep up the good work! XOX

Maasgarid, I just realized this as I was reading the new reviews. Silly me! It will be fixed in next release. Also, I've found a pretty serious (but minor) date/time problem that is causing the other bugs the user's are reporting. It too, will be fixed.

UNAVAILABLE. Rats. I was REALLY looking forward to trying this app out. Is the developer still, err, developing?
