Sorry everyone ignore my last question I got it sorted out had to uninstall media centre and delete it's database files. I just have one last question because I want to make sure I'm doing this all properly. After playing with this late into the night, I seem to have guide and everything working but I just want to be sure. It seems like the instructions for the multiple guide hack assume you have local cable or something to actually get local guide data.
*My setup is I'm in Toronto beaches, have a CM4221, I have no cable, satellite anything just antenna as I just cancelled FibeTV*
1) I enabled the ATSC hack for Media Centre and ran the setup for Canada with my postal code. It detected the ATSC but I said do manual setup and I selected that I have cable. I then said set up digital ATSC tuner and it showed it would set it up with the 2 tuners.
2) This downloaded all of the local channel data as SD since I picked cable. I tried digital cable but it wanted an IR blaster and wouldn't detect mine but I assume picking analog only means it doesn't show the HD icon on the guide?
3) I then ran the USGuide.bat file as administrator and first selected 4 for Toronto. That loaded guide data in for the US channels in the area like Buffalo ones.
4) When I went into Guide settings in media center, I was then able to edit listings on all the channels, using the Rogers digital cable guide data for the local channels, and then the US data for the Buffalo ones.
So everything seems to work. But I have a few questions. First off, is what I did correct? My concern is that in Media Centre if I click Get Latest Guide Listings, it says the thing about downloading the guide listings you will be notified when the download is complete.
A minute or so later it pops up saying guide download error, guide could not be downloaded etc. So that's the only thing that concerns me but I'm not sure if that's normal, as the USGuide.bat script I think is what is downloading the guide daily and not media center? Or is this error just referring to the ATSC guide data? Is there any way to check the status of the USGuide script? I'm just concerned that I'll have the TV running, go away on business and family will call one day saying there's no guide or something.
