Another TV Forecast
May 31st, 2007

TV Forecast 2.2.3 has just been released. It addresses 3 issues:

  • 12PM incorrectly displayed as 12AM
  • Incorrect date calculation in some circumstances when the system date is the 31st of the month
  • After a reboot, custom time zones do not take effect until widget is flipped.

Fingers crossed this will be the last release before 2.3. For now though, I’m focusing on the next version of TV Countdown. Be sure to stay tuned!

    I like this widget; however, I haven’t been able to get it to work. All the shows I enter in are listed as TBA. For example, Numb3rs is on tonight (Friday) at 9PM central time zone, but the widget just shows Numb3rs as TBA.

    @Jeremy: The reason that a lot of shows are appearing as TBA is because they have ended for the season. TV Forecast doesn’t handle repeats – only new episodes, sorry!

    Thanks for clearing that up. I had wondered the same thing, but wasn’t sure.

  • what does TBA stand for?

  • Matt Comi — 3:50 pm on 3.6.2007

    @Dan: TBA stands for To Be Announced. A lot of shows that have ended for the season are showing this and will continue to do so until their next episode air date is announced.

  • Ah, okay, that makes sense. I put up a show and it was shown as TBA, but it shows repeats. Thanks for clearing that up!

    Maybe you could work on a widget update for repeats, too! 😉

    i need a widget/program like this for Windows.

  • One suggestion: As a bridge between “refersh every time Dashboard is activated” and “refresh manually”, how about “refresh once daily”?

  • Matt Comi — 7:34 pm on 3.8.2007

    @Joe: Not a bad idea – though more likely I’ll implement it as a drop down list containing items like, “Every time”, “Hourly”, “Daily”, “Never”

  • Even better, Matt!

    Love the widget, but I am still having problems with TBA. Mine is currently saying TBA for Entourage and Flight of the Conchords even though they are playing new episodes on HBO.

  • Matt Comi — 10:17 am on 14.8.2007

    @Craig McCaffery: I think that can happen for a short time between episodes. Let me know if the problem doesn’t go away.

  • Hi, Prison Break is’nt TBA! (;3)
    But this Widget is a nice one!
