I offered to buy the iPhone app if he fixed the Mac version. No luck.

Completely broken in 10.8.

Once again this recovers from a problem with TV Rage going offline providing information to it for a few days. This time it fixed itself. Annoying, but gratifying to fix itself without a new version.

I like it a lot and can list all the shows I watch in order with list times for new episodes. That's all I'm looking for, not more information about the shows. You can get that by clicking on the show and going through to TV Rage.

I'm sure this is very popular on iPhone, iPad, and iPod. I give it four stars on Mac. Hey, it's free and works 99.9% of the time.

Update: not running under 10.8 Mountain Lion. The author is aware of this problem and presumably will come out with a fixed version fairly soon.

The question is — WHEN is »fairly soon«? It's been 1 month now. :-(

Glad to see the widget functioning again. However, a new TV listings source apparently means having to re-enter all your TV Shows again. Lame, but I suppose there is no way around it.

It's because the website which was used for the receiving the information has changed a lot recently.

I'm having pretty much the same problem... for the past month (maybe longer) all of my shows on the widget simply say 'TBA' or 'unknown'... something to that effect. I really liked the widget until this little glitch sprang up, though.

Wow, my review vanished... C'est la vie...

However, I just noticed something else that needs addressing.
You need to place a version number or date on the info side of the widget! I know I have version 2.something, but that's it. ^_^

Great app. Comments about 'unknown' seem to be the result of recent updates. Update to the latest version and it'll fix the 'unknown' for your shows. Again, a fantastic application that works wonderfully.

Love this widget. Use it all the time. Unfortunately, the latest version (2.3.5) causes Dashboard and all my widgets to freeze while it's trying to load the TV data. Not cool. All widgets become inaccessible until TV Forecast loads all data. Same problem on the Mac Pro desktop and my MacBook Pro both running 10.5.6.

I'll have to lay off this one until a fix comes.

This widget has been very good up until a day ago and now it will not display any information (i.e. shows).
What's going on?

From his site:

TV Forecast Dashboard Widget is temporarily unavailable

January 30th, 2009

The TV Forecast dashboard widget is currently out of order due to a TV.com redesign. I will get to work fixing it as soon as possible.

The iPhone App is unaffected as it is powered by TVRage.com.

You can follow the developments here:

In particular, this post has the details:
http://www.bigbucketblog.com/2009/03/02/tv-forecast-widget/

Until Matt releases a fix, I posted my own fix on my website:
http://www.pommepause.com/online_files/tv_forecast_thetvdb.html

I'm using TheTVDB.com as the data source instead of the unstable TV.com source the widget normally use. It's also much faster to refresh (once data is cached).

Cheers.
