calendar not Pushing?

Things "appears" to be working, except the calendar. I created an event on my iPhone, it appears on my www.me.com/calendar/, but it doesn't appear on my Mac. I even synced it and it doesn't show up. Any thoughts why??

Thanks.

I am having the same result. everything seems to be working fine but iCal pushing.

My guess is it has something to do with the MobileMe Updater that we are not getting. Maybe that will make some changes to the Mail.app to allow this option?

I can't even get .Mac to accept my password... I just get password error when trying to hit the sync tab in system preferences, yet when I enter my MobileMe info in the Account tab of .Mac it says password accepted.

Sync set to automatic in prefs? Also subscribed calendars?

Do you have syncing set for the calendar automatically in the mobile me preferences/sync on all the computers you are using? I set all my devices that way now. I used to use manuel. I have made a test calendar on Mobile me, and then synced back down to my Powermac from mobile me calendar ok, and mail.
Also, subscribed calendars do not sync up to mobile me. Anyone else notice? I sent them an email about that, I am, and will be dissapointed if my 7 subscribed calendars on the Chandler Hub don't sync up with mobile me.

I was thinking about that. I thought that once you set up the sync and ran it, everything worked over the web automatically, not based on how you set up the sync?? I thought that was a one time thing to do at the start????

I guess that's wrong???

>>mobile me preferences/sync<<

I'm assuming you are talking about the preferences for mobile me in my System Preferences on my Mac. First of all I don't have a Mobile Me icon. I have a .mac icon and it has all the old choices from a .mac

And syncing under auto didn't do anything to my Mac Calendar.

push calendar is not working for me either...i did go into mobileme in references on my Macbook, and set it to automatic, but that didn't seem to do it.

Also I got an error on Molbileme when I tried to set up a recurring event in the calendar online. Looks like there are still some bugs.

After some fighting I got calendars to sync. This is what I did.

In iCal Preferences->General->MobileMe-Sync.
Sync Manually
Only Check Calendar
Then Click Advanced
Highlight your computer and click reset sync data
Make sure it says "On this computer replace with MobileMe."
Click Ok
Click Sync now
Close iCal and reopen
Your calender should now be synced
Go back to preferences and change to automatic and whatever you want.

I don't have anything on my Mac that says Mobile Me. Everything is .mac. Does that make a difference.

Are you in System Preferences doing this?????

It should still be fine (I think) if it says .mac instead of mobile me. In system preferences or iCal preferences, it's the same dialog.

Before I did the above, I created a new event on the iPhone and a different one on calendar.

My new Calendar event went from Calendar to iPhone, but the one I created on iPhone did not go from iPhone to Calendar.

I think I have found a bug in iCal. Could someone try the following two scenarios:

====
Scenario 1:
1: Make sure iCal isn't started. If it is, quit it
2: Start iCal
3: Close the iCal window (don't shut iCal down!)
4: Open the iCal window again by clicking on the dock icon
5: Go to me.com/calendar and add an event
6: Wait untill MobileMe pushes it to your Mac
7: See if it appears in iCal
====

====
Scenario 2:
1: Make sure iCal isn't started. If it is, quit it
2: Start iCal
3: LEAVE THE ICAL WINDOW OPEN!
4: Go to me.com/calendar and add an event
5: Wait untill MobileMe pushes it to your Mac
6: See if it appears in iCal
====

With me, it doesn't appear in iCal in scenario 1, but it does in scenario 2. You guys got the same result?

(in scenario 1 it only appears after completely quiting iCal and starting it again)

Neither scenario worked for me, but I noticed that I just received a note about a software update: Here's the description::::

The Mac OS X Update For MobileMe (1.1) is recommended for users running Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.4 and includes general system fixes that enhance your Mac for MobileMe.

I'll install the update and see what shakes out.

Did it appear when you quit iCal afterwards and start it again? If not, it wasn't pushed correctly.
I already got the 1.1 update btw

Wow this is very frustrating. This is SO UNMAC!!

Now my mobile me calendar won't load at all.

Previously if I entered an event on mobile me calendar, it would push to my Mac and iPhone.

An event that I created on my Mac went to Mobile me and my iPhone, but not all of them.

If I created an event on iPhone it would go to Mobile me, but not my Mac.

I do have Mobile Me now on my System Preferences instead of .mac.

Mine is sort of working. It's just really slow. Added an event on my MacBook and it took about 10 min to "push" to my iPod. Not so much as a push as a slow ooze.

At least it's starting to work. Hopefully it'll get faster, and hopefully they'll release .Me updates for the older OS's. I have Tiger on an old PowerBook G4 and there are no updates for it yet.

I was just surprised to wake up this morning, type in www.mac.com and not get the "maintenance" message that we've been getting for a couple days.

wlh99: I was also having problems with my iCal calender on my MAC not pushing to MobileMe and tried what you suggested which worked. Thanks for the info/help.

I am still having problems as well as you guys are with pushing and having my MAC, iPhone, and MobileMe all synching. It seems like one thing will sync and another won't, so I'm guessing Apple will get this fixed asap. (Let's hope...)

error message when syncing ical

Whenever I try to sync ical from MM I always get the message that the data is inconsistent on my mac.
I've tried everything, even the thing in the advanced tab where you can sync from MM to your computer and replace all calendar files on your computer with the data from MM but then I always get the error message "... can't sync calender because the data is inconsistent?"
Any help would be appreciated, or should I wait another couple of days??
