The useless Online Guides - ongoing reports...

BoxOffice

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

The old one was still working on Friday/Saturday.  Wanted to put a reminder for something on Saturday afternoon. Couldn't do it with the new one (idiots...), so went with the old one.  

 

/update...   sorry wasn't a reminder, was checking to see if RR is working again...  functionality not available Smiley Sad

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

Thanks Jan, but my older Firefox can't, even if I fiddle... MC must realise it's not for people to try work out their security hysteria and must rather do things properly with the customer FIRST in mind - something done less and less as we go on!

 

I think I'll adapt Geoff's attitude here and just not bother. One day maybe MC will realise that all their nonsense usually makes their profits less with their endless alienation of users, why can't they stop fiddling... and also learn from established professionals like everyone else sensible on the planet does???

Windows Edge also does not allow you to log in.It seem to be a security issue because when I made the Dstv.co.za a trusted site tin Internet Options the option to log in displayed again but when you log in although it seem like you are logged in certain operations result in a you are not logged in although the Welcome (username) is displayed in the top RH corner indicating that you are logged in. Using Firefox I can log in and all is back to normal.

More idiocy...

 

If anyone else can't close an opened synopsis in the List section - the "X" for that doesn't work, try clicking above it in the empty space, where your mouse cursor becomes a hand or something.

 

If any of this is due to my old browser - remember MC, many, many South Africans / Africans in particular can't afford new software / computers........ what does it take to register facts with your decision making management??

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

It looks like the old online guide has now been removed, or has collapsed.

 

So tried the new guide.

Was able to use it this time, but that's the only positive.

Can't get logged in - I am logged in with my connect ID, for instance the Box Office section picks me up, but nothing works on dstv.co.za and there's no log in option and register does nothing.

As such (presumably) - can't use remote record, offers some sort of PC based reminder instead, and can't find a search feature... is that why?? ridiculous if it is!

 

You are now considered a ST00PID company MC.

 

If anyone can help, TIA.

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

Was testing remote recording, since mine stops working from time to time for no apparent reason,  and then starts working again a couple of days or weeks, again for no apparent reason Smiley Happy Stopped working over the weekend. Contacted them via FB on Tuesday eve and all of a sudden it started working again. According to them, they did nothing and was still troubleshooting....

 

Seach on the new one is pretty useless. Tried Lethal to see if I'd get Lethal Weapon back ... what a joke. Tried same on the old one... probably still searching by the time the post is done...

However, the old one is still working

BTW, the old one currently can't do searches or Other Airings.

 

Not that the new one ever could search... or did that change?? Is it still so slow, what's the attraction?
