Yep, more of that "AI" self-delusion they're all drowning in... seems everyone suddenly forgot how poor some of the world markets' on-going and foundational related s/w releases are and the scrambling efforts they have to keep making to keep patching it all.

Very weird, like many of them have lost their minds en masse. Maybe due to there being few top leaders and everyone else being sheep...

Sun. 26th and Fri. 31st now working.

(Sometimes just trying again will fix an incident like the first one, but the second one is just timing.)

Re: The useless Online Guide - ongoing reports...

Thank you to those who are now making effort with this, but I'll reserve judgement on the value of that.

 

Next:

Besides our earlier concerns, there's also the concern regarding why it takes viewers reporting these things for them even to be noticed???

Without proper and regular QA you will surely die MC!

 

BTW, despite this attention the Thurs. 23rd setup is still largely screwed up!!

Also couldn't get info for next Sun. 26th to work at all this morning! And naturally, although listed, day 14 (Fri. 31st) isn't working yet even though half a day has passed!

 

Endless rubbish service in far too many divisions MC!!!! And too many wake-up calls, your lack of urgency or even usually any response with it has mostly lost my interest!

Hi @Optimist and @krugie

 

Apologies for the delayed response. We have requested an update. Incidents are still under investigation and feedback will be given once received.

Re: The useless Online Guide - ongoing reports...

As a matter of fact, the online guide accessible from the dstv.com website can't even be searched. The Search function at the top searches the  DSTV website  - and not the TV Guide. I don't know what superpower we are meant to use when trying to find something...

 

The useless non-functional Search is still available from guide.dstv.com but there is no link to this guide from the DSTV website - probably because it is such an embarrassment! And why are there two version in the first place?

Re: The useless Online Guide - ongoing reports...

I agree with @Optimist - I can't understand that, after literally years and years of pointing out all the issues, basically nothing has ever been changed or fixed. It must be the most useless search facility on the entire Internet and navigation is like a blind person trying to drive a Formula 1 race. Given that all other options of us exploring content is being taken away, this should the of the utmost highest priority to get sorted and fixed once and for all!

Thank you @TebogoM_DStv1  , and please also note that there are many, many other related Online Guide posts and devoted threads mostly made these days by regulars such as @GeoffD  , @MadCat  , @krugie  , and others - please ensure they are all looked at again as little that was mentioned has ever been fixed.

(And there are tons more on the old forum.)

Re: The useless Online Guide - ongoing reports...

BTW, most of Thurs. the 23rd has been messed up for almost a week now - @Julia_DStv1  and @TebogoM_DStv1  and @Grace_DStv1  - please would you have them attend to it. Thank you

And while we're at it, can anyone tell me why there's a lookup procedure going on when this guide first loads in a normal internet browser that involves connecting to Google and FaceBook among other odd places???? No wonder it's so sloooow!
