    Hi.
    Nev version 0.4.3.5 in our repo. Link in first post.
    It's a fixed version for some TVSpielfilm issues so you better upgrade if you use TVSpielfilm.

    Quick question.
    0.4.3.4 and 0.4.3.5 have both shown up in Windows Defender as a virus.
    3.4 shows as Trojan:Win32/Tiggre!plock and is severe.
    3.5 shows as Trojan:Win32/Vigorf.A and is severe.
    I would imagine they are false positives. What code would alert defender after 3.4 is installed and delete the .exe?
    3.5 immediately deleted on download and the installer wasn't run.
    I'll get back after I turn off defender and download and install 3.5 again.
    Thanks!

    Shut off real time protection. Downloaded and installed 0.4.3.5 ok. Grabbed the TVGuide schedule ok.
    Turned on real time protection and did a quick scan. It showed no threats.
    Rebooted with no issues even after a quick scan.
    Tried the same on a Win 10 laptop. At first 0.4.3.5 was deleted as the same Vigorf.A Trojan.
    Defender off it downloaded and installed. No further problems.
    So, what code may do this?

    Hi.
    It simply is a bad detection routine in Defender doing this. EPG-Buddy is no virus and contains no virus.

    I've just compiled an empty AutoIt program, only containing a ";" and uploaded it to Virus Total. A ";" is the sign for a comment, a line in the code that is not executed at all.The result is horrible. Way to many AV programs are reporting false positives also there is absolutely nothing the program can do. And all AV tools reporting different "Virus". So nearly all AV tools aren't doing their jobs properly. Not that I had expected something different but now I can proof they are not working...

    Thanks to all involved updating EPG Buddy to address recent changes to TVGuide.com login.

    I'm a recent convert from zap2xml.exe to EPG Buddy and got things working yesterday. However, I had to add a -5 hour time compensation (USA-Chicago,Il area).

    Is this expected as I thought regional info was provided inherently from the TVGuide registration (zipcode, OTA) ? Am I missing something ?

    Hi.
    It is not really expected, but it's not too uncommon that you need to add a time compensation. Normally the compensation should be added automatically by tvguide.com. Probably the recognition of your time zone is not properly working. If I remember right, we had someone else from Chicago area also having issues with time compensation on tvguide.com.
    In general on tvguide.com all times are given in UTC with a compensation if necessary. Last year (in autum) as I had last time tested tvguide.com I had a (correct) +1:00 compensation added to every program.
    If the compensation in MP is working, I would not add too much energy in fixing this, if I were in your situation. It doesn't matter where the compensation is added as long as it is working.
    This is nothing related to EPG-Buddy at all. If there is an issue it is on the tvguide.com site...
