Check Google search. There is someone selling a working copy of epCheck

I see no such software.  A link would have been nice.

Well - I guess epCheck is a goner.  Been a long time without the fix arriving.  That's a shame.  I use PC's in the living room and Master bedroom for loads of Media and Web things, and tracking TV shows we watch is a great feature.  I have two other programs that can do the job (epguides.com Watcher, and Duckietv) but they have very small fonts (hard to read on the TV across the room) and I far prefer the ecCheck interface overall.  I understand that real life gets in the way of programming on the side - it's just a shame since I too am a long time user of this software and would even be willing to pay a reasonable price for it - it's that good, and that helpful.

Today people rely on apps on phones for this sort of thing.  But for computer users. epCheck was wonderful.  Had a lot more features (like entire seasonal listings, cable and pay channel series) which many of the small apps do NOT have.

Sorry to see it go, but it really doesn't look like it's coming back at this point.

I still keep it installed and check every so often if an update shows up, but it's been months now so I think the party's over.

Thanks for while it lasted!

I want to fix epCheck, because it's an app that I enjoy using myself.  Right now, it's a matter of finding time to do it, and I hope to find time this holiday week.  =]

This is great to hear.  I've used two other episode reminders for the PC, and EP Check is still by far the best.  Easy to read and use.  I assume the new API 3 from TVDB is the problem.  Hopefully you can find the time to update EP Check to comply.  (Right now all it downloads are the graphics for each show.)  I was going to suggest that maybe make this an open source program and see if others want to work on it, but if you are looking to do the updates to meet with the new programming API - that's great.  I'd be willing to pay a reasonable amount for EP Check - it's that good.  But of course getting enough people to pay to make it well worth your while is not a guarantee! ;)   I look forward to your efforts - hope you can get things running again!  Thanks!
