Essentially, what happens is guide data is downloaded from an external source in a specific format (XML) on both ROVI, and EPG123, and using the LoadMXF.exe program, the data is populated into a database. I wanted to see if two databases could coexist in WMC but apparently they cannot, and if you try, WMC marks the older database as corrupt, and uses the newer, rebuilt database so I am thinking that all Sports related guide data comes from the .MXF files contained within sports. One of these Sports.MXF files works, and shows on now, while the other doesn't I GUESS. Looking through random posts around this forum, I came across this log file, and I can swear I've seen something similar elsewhere. This is just a small portion of it but it looks to me like WMC is still pointed to its old plugins, but cannot find any data in them. My next thought is to try populating some of the Sports.MXF files, and see if the On Later tab works. I also got a set back while I was changing things in my TV room WMC. I changed the permissions of the guide database, sports folders, sports strip, and Microsoft Netflix plugin to add full control, and they all dissapeared. I'm not sure if WMC does an integrity check before it loads files, or if changing permissions will alter the hash of a file but using all of the same methods I have previously used to install these did not work.
This is real PITA for me but it might also help me figure out exactly how to get them back. I'm wondering If I have to add the sports folders, and renable them in the registry. Either way, if someone sees that I am either getting closer or further away from a solution please feel free to speak up.

This is a good point to find out... I forgot completely about this update that is done every few hours (shocked they didn't remove that when they killed off the Sports Strip)
Finding out where Microsoft is downloading the sports files from is the next step, then you can do some funky DNS to have it point to your local machine where the updated file is.
This is as long as it does not come from the same place as normal guide data, as that would break guide data...
