Stuck at 'Downloading TV Setup Data'

Post#1 » Tue May 02, 2017 11:41 pm

PDF instruction 4 says to click OK button on warning prompt and proceed with the setup until complete.

Problem is nothing downloads so I ultimately have to cancel, stopping whatever setup is needed to get past this point.

At this stage, it is still trying to download information from MS servers for regional information for configuring your tuners. I've seen this problem quite a few times where it tells you it can't download. Most of the time, I just CANCEL, BACK, deny to ToS again, and the second time it "gets" the information.

Another route would be to use zip code 00000 ... it recognizes an invalid zip code and doesn't really try to download anything. It will then proceed to the tuner setup.

Ok, got through the zip code holdup.

Next problem, it scans for channels, I elect to choose manually, click antenna, detects my 2 HdHomerun tuners, click next, and greeted by 'TV Setup Cannot Continue' with a 'TV setup has detected a serious problem' narrative.

So I'm back to square one.

I've gone so far as to uninstall, then reinstall WMC.

Worse is the fact that prior to all of this WMC was at least working, now I'm dead in the water.

I'm now looking at this post by dbjorck - https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/win ... 215a1e62b2

Let us know how it goes. His/Her method is pretty close to what I would suggest. I would have suggested booting into safe mode and running epg123Client.exe to perform the 'Step 1: Clean Start' and delete the ehome folder that way. Once you boot back into normal mode, try TV Setup again.

The instructions in his link worked! TV setup in WMC went much faster.

Guess it's too much to expect a 10 year old OS to uninstall all relevant files for a clean start.
