Lineup changes!

Gracenote notified us a little over a month ago they were going to rename a bunch of lineups starting on Dec 13th. Schedules Direct sent a notice at that time, but it caused more problems than it solved because the new lineup names weren't in the system yet!

Well, the changes have started to hit! So, if your lineup has gone away, choose a new one. Many analog lineups have gone away (use a digital one), and duplicate lineups have been removed. We should still have a lineup that works for you, but you probably need to choose a new one on our website and your application.

ReplayTV LaHo users will need to change their zipcode (value doesn't matter). Just type a digit and let it rotate. Next, the ReplayTV should prompt for the new source (digital cable or Satellite)

If you're having trouble, best to start with your application support, or if you don't have one, use the Lineup Support Link.

We tried for a graceful transition, but Gracenote didn't provide for it.

Perc Data price increase

Sadly, the time has come to increase Perc Data prices. We haven't raised prices since we started in 2011, and even cut the ReplayTV pricing soon after it started (once we knew costs).

The new prices are:

  • $40/year Standard Data Direct and XMLTV feed
  • $28/6-months ReplayTV primary unit
  • $16/6-months ReplayTV additional unit

steady as she goes

I noticed it's been a few years since the last news item. No news is good news. :) Steady as she goes.

XMLTV feed now available via HTTPS

Perc Data is happy to provide a direct XMLTV feed! Can be accessed using wget,curl and other applications. You can even use your browser (but I don't know why you would).

Once creating an account and adding a lineup, here's the URL

If you let your LaHo/ReplayTV subscription expire...

We have identified a situation where if you let your PercData account expire, our "Goodwill" service will change the host name used by your ReplayTV, back to ReplayTV's official servers (which no longer exist).

So, If you've let your account expire and have connection problems after renewal, you'll need to perform the networking portion of the ReplayTV setup again.

Welcome ReplayTV refugees!

We are aware that ReplayTV is having technical difficulties and guide data stopped on 7/15. PERC's LaHo RNS (Last Hope Replay Network Server) has been ready since ReplayTV's aborted shutdown a few years ago. If you have a network attached Replay we can keep it working. For information on how, check out our ReplayTV FAQ.

Update: Jul, 19, 2015
Thanks to the additional ReplayTV users, we have doubled the term of our ReplayTV subscriptions! The change is retroactive, so if you paid for 3 months, you now have an additional 3 months.

ReplayTV modem service still up

The ReplayTV test dialup line was never shut down, and thanks to some donations will continue. Feel free to make a long distance call to Dallas for normal guide updates or the "Goodwill" program.

As a service to the community, the Perc servers will now provide time services and IR Blaster updates to ReplayTV units without a Perc Data account. All you have to do is follow the setup instructions make one or two polls and then you can point back to the ReplayTV servers. For more details, read the "Good Will" thread in the forum.

ReplayTV service live

I thought I'd post that our ReplayTV service is live and you can pay for it now. I'd like to thank all the beta testers. Most of your suggestions have been applied, and we look forward to more.

While it's hard to compete with Replay's official service (especially while it's still free), if you're tired of the nag screens, connect to us. :) Other than that, please consider us should Replay change their mind again.
