Media center program guide not updating
And a successfully populated guide is the final step in validating that the new guide is now functioning correctly.Reference links: Summary: In my environment I was able to work around the issue by trying a variety of local zip codes until one of them would populate the television guide data correctly.-In the File name field, type C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc\hosts. -Replace the IP address at the bottom of file with: .113 data.tvdownload.72.2 tvdownload.-Click File Save to save your changes.B-) CLEAN GUIDE DOWNLOAD AND ASSIGNMENT (By Wyldwof): -Close WMC -Open Task Scheduler – Control Panel, System and Security, Administrative Tools, Schedule Tasks -In the left tree expand Task Scheduler Library, Microsoft, Windows, Media Center -In the right pane under name, right-click Object Store Recovery Task, and click Run (let it run for 2 mins) -Close Task Scheduler C-DNS FLUSH -Click Start. -Select Accessories and locate the Command Prompt shortcut.However, when I go back to check the guide, I still only have 5-6 days of listings.
With some debugging I found that the television guide was not updating correctly for my over antenna signals.As an example if you live in Houston: UPDATE: I have gathered all of the valid zip code information which I’ve been able to find online and combined it at: https://com/redir? 52294 A failure to get data for the zip code you entered will show up with an error like the one shown below.Do not continue past this step, go back and try another local zip code.UPDATE: 7/30/2015: If the instructions above do not work for you, see the comments from Marcus and Willow below for a second approach which is reporting success.A subset of their comments are listed below and were provided by a forum on The Green Button: Open.
