Having problems with guide in windows media center?
I just wanted to share a quick OTA tip for windows media center. When I setup my OTA earlier this year media center informed me that guide data was not available for digital channels in my region. I don't know if this is a maritime thing or all of Canada, but I was able to get a guide by mapping the info from the old analog channels that were still showing up. About a month ago my Global guide info disappeared. I could only assume the others would go that way soon enough. If you are having this issue...here is how to get around it.
Go to the tv setup menu and select setup tv signal.
Choose let me setup manually
Choose analog cabe AKA no digital set top box.
Let windows import that guide data.
Now choose setup another tuner and choose your digital tuner.
Let media center scan for digital channels.
Now if your digital channels do not have guide data right click on the channel and click edit.
Choose edit guide settings
Copy data from the appropriate channel on the cable guide.
Lastly you can edit your channels and disable all the cable channels that you don't have so you don't have to see them in your channel list.
Now you should have guide data for all your digital channels! I hope this helps anyone going through the frustration of not having their guide data.
