Hello everyone,

For weeks now I cannot see the program or guide info on CBLT (CBC) Toronto.
Anyone else having this issue?

Has anything changed with the way they send the guide info?

I have two Channel master DVR+ units. They both do the same thing, only on CBC Toronto. If I factory restore the unit it displays the guide info, then after one day its back to showing "Unknown Event".

My TV alone will show the info, however I don't know how long it will last before displaying "Unknown Event".

Just wondering if anyone else is having this issue.

I stopped using the internet guide for reliability issues. Asking Channel Master for help was less than useless. They just said the aging firmware was at fault and recommended to go to the OTA guide.

The CBLT channel information always worked for years until recently. I doubt it's a fault in two DVR's at the same time.

Do you mean it was working before and now doesn't? It's fine with my tv today but unless we are looking at the same time, that isn't much use to you. There's actually a history of CBC and guide data issues. See the CBC/SRC Network Status thread, particularly around Late March/early April 2012 (almost 10 years ago now!). Analyzing the content of the signal using TSReader is a good way to see if something weird is going on.

When I was with Shaw and was blank many times earlier this year. All other stations were fine. Something to do with our tax funded wonder channels. ;)

Same issue for me, no program info on CBLT for some weeks on my converter box. Also no program info on CBLFT for a long time, can't remember when it used to work.

Funny thing, after I posted the problem in this thread, the guide info came back later the same day,
coincidence?

It's still on today
