    Gadget with manual recording

    I've noticed that manual recordings cause a glitch in the Desktop gadget, for all subsequent recordings.
    What, me worry?

    The problem is that it is looking for XML data that doesn't exist for manual recordings so it stops processing the rest of the recordings.

    UncleJohnsBand, is there any way you could also provide the 'webServiceEPGEventObject' element for manual recordings in the gadget InfoXML? Thanks.

    Hi

    Been using this on Windows 7 from work (using HTTP), worked fine until 5 mins ago, getting NA - Check network conneciton, server, and settings.

    If i use the URL and port i have in this gadgit, it opens the webpage, again this just stopped, so have no idea whats up!
    Many Thanks

    I'm not sure. Hopefully it is just a temporary connection problem. If not, try it at home - maybe there is some kind of issue in the XML that is not being handled properly.

    Confirmed it appears to have been an Internet domain / DNS issue
    Many Thanks

    I'm unable to see the Free Disk Space numbers or bar of the foot of the window. This is probably because I have font size set to 150% (for viewing on a TV). The gadget is also too small for viewing at this size, and I can't read/access all the options. Could the gadget be made DPI-aware or, alternatively, could it have adjustable window sizes?

    You can change the height of the disk space area by editing the .js and .css files manually. I can point you in the right direction if you want to do this. If you are talking about the Options dialog it is controlled by windows so this can't be enlarged (the Options of other gadgets should look the same way).
