Latest EPG update contains no new data. Actual guide data ends at 8 pm EDT on 4/1.

Time for a Spring thread now?

Check your actual guide and you'll see it ends a day earlier. WMC always reports a day later than when the actual data ends.

You are correct. Just looked and my listing ended at 4 PM, 1 April. Wonder why they give the following date as the end date?

It's always been that way.

Nothing to see here. Move along.

Just got an update with 2 days of new data taking the end date to 8 pm EDT on April 3.

Earliest update I've seen in about a year with an additional day of prime time listings than we've been getting. Would be really nice if it stays like this. Maybe someone's watching for a change.

Today's update was available by 5 pm EDT which is good but contained no new data which is not so good...

EPG data end remains at 8 pm EDT on April 3.

My guide data technically goes to April 4, but many channels and programs start showing "no data available" on April 1. The data for April 3 is almost completely empty.

'About' shows an EPG end date of 4 April, but listings end 4:30 PM, 1 April. Manual update resulted in an error message. Fresno-Visalia OTA, California. I begin to panic when listings get down to 3 days.

My guide shows through 4/5 at 7pm in Richmond, VA and the guide won't download using the manual update. Is this a known issue and part of this Spring outage?

Yes, the downloaded file I got last night was identical to the previous nights downloaded file. Let's see what happens tonight...

I just setup a brand new PC and it seems that my guide data is not downloading at all. Every single time I go to the guide it tells me my guide data is out of date and needs to update. When I do it only takes like 20 seconds and says it id done and show no data. When I exit the guide and go back it does the same process over again. I am guessing this is because of the Rovi epg data server being down or could I be doing something else wrong?

The EPG download is currently working with data through April 23, 8 pm EDT. Sorry I can't help with your issue

I've got data to 4/25 at 8 pm EDT.

Yesterday's update contained no new data while today's had only one new day leaving us with one day less data than we've been getting the past year.

Over the last couple of weeks, roughly 1/4 of the daily updates have had no new data.

My updates have been made available around 11pm ET each day. Wednesday nights update had no new data, but last night did load two new days of data, so it looks fine to me right now (data up to 4/25 @ 8pm ET).

If you only have 10 days data it may be something other than the normal country-wide outage.
