EPG123 Won't Install

Post#1 » Tue May 15, 2018 9:52 pm

I'm trying to install epg123 that I downloaded earlier today. I ran the Clean Start and in Step 2 in WMC it is hanging up. In the 'Downloading TV Setup Data' it just hangs forever. It never moves on to the 'Examining TV Signals' step. When I click Cancel it goes back to the very beginning. I never get to the 'TV Signal Detection Result' screen. And now I seem to be stuck in Step 'Configure" with a 'wait cursor' What am I doing wrong?

This is a problem with the MS servers, typically. The work-around that I have found is to do the following...

1. Right before you click the 'OK' button when declining the Program Guide Terms of Service (Step 2 - Windows Media Center TV Setup, step 4), disconnect your network cable.
2. With no network, it will fail to "Download TV Setup Data" but will present a prompt that you could try later and let you proceed. Before clicking the 'OK' button for that prompt, reconnect your network cable.

from Program Guide Terms of Service page...
Disconnect network cable
Click 'OK'
Wait for failure prompt
Reconnect network cable
Click 'OK'
