TV Guide achievement

Wage-Slave

Hi fellow chess players.

Does anyone knows how to unlock the TV Guide achievement from the Awards display? I've tried everything. It says "you watched some Chess TV", but this is not the case, 'cause I've seen lots of chess TV episodes from different plataforms (cell phone, PC, tablets), off line episodes, basically everythink! happy.png And yet, no results. I could manage to unlock 100 achievements so far, but this one (and his sibilings (for 10 and 100 chess TV episodes)) I got no sucesso. So, if anyone knows how to proceed I would love it. Thanks guys.

Well, Ronald, I dont think so, because the chess.com youtube channel is not linked with my account here, so, how can they tell what I watch or not? happy.png

I did all of this, Ronald. I talked to the developers, to the helpers, to the staff via e-mail. This award is busted, I've tried everything and I never saw anyone with it. Well, thanks for the help buddy.

Did you try randomly searching through players achievement sections to see if they had unlocked the TV Guide award? And then when you found one, did you message them to see how they received it? Then let me know so I can get the achievement as well.

Hey PatternRecognition, I did this as well, never found one. In fact, I've talked to a developer here and he said while ago that TV Guide and his cousins awards (couch potato and so forth) are indeed troubled and they are fixing soon, also the good habit award (for those who play tactics a whole week through) is up, it wasn't too. Let's see if they can fix it still.

Still he never quite said he actively searched for people with that achievement. Just that he never came across anyone with it. I am trying to get this achievement as well. If I do I will let you know.

Thanks, PR. I will do the same to you once I get it.

Hahahahahaha Nice one buddy

I finally was given this achievement. I'll plan to post about it in my blog tomorrow, Lord Willing.

Nice, PT, tell us how did you get it, please! What was the step by step? Did you see archieve videos or live streams from chess TV? Congrats!!

Wage-Slave

I got mine as well. Ok, it seems that watch archieve videos from chessTV won't count as an episode, thus I think we need to see 10 live events in order to get the Couch Potato award, it's just a guess, but let's see how this unfolds. I will keep in touch.

Focused now on achieve the hardest ones: 10000 daily games and 10000 solved tactics (both seem impossible to reach for me).

PatternRecognition

The 10000 daily games seems really difficult. The tactics not so much. Play 20 daily games at once and get the "Juggler" award. Anyways, here is my blog...

Guys, TV Guide is up, but I dont know how to get the other two. What does it mean "an episode of TV"? Only live events? I think I've seen more than 10 live coverages since I get the TV Guide award, but couch potato seems to be broken so far. Any ideas?

Hello people, I also watched some TV but did not get the achievement? What can I do? Kind regards.

Without links, can someone explain on this thread how to get the TV Guide achievement? PR had a blog but just deactivated his account.

Wage-Slave

I managed to got them all. Well I watched live events for a few minutes say ten minutes each and thats pretty much it. It showed up by itself onto my screen

You just need to visit chess.com/tv while a show is playing. Watching for 1 or more minute should be all that is required.
