yes, it is not the truth. it's a lie lie. ;)

But, only a tad bit of cold water:
why are the EPG thumbnails wrong for the first time in ages?

Maybe after the March Basketball Tournament Lineups are determined:
the thumbnails will be correct again? :think:

Anyone else having a guide outage?

I'm in New Jersey on Verizon FiOS - guide stops at Tuesday at 7:30 PM on most channels. However, FOX has a guide through April 25th at 7:30 PM. I'm not using EPG123

From a command prompt, run "start /wait c:\windows\ehome\mcupdate.exe -uf -dbgc" and wait for it to complete. This may clear everything up for you... it does a garbage cleanup of your database (-dbgc) and forces a download/update of all packages (-uf).

I have found that running the above may "unstick" the guide update process when using Rovi.

Did it, guide was back, restarted computer, guide is gone, now it has been "downloading the guide" for 30 minutes. Hopefully it finishes soon?

I am also using Verizon FiOS in NJ (Freehold lineup) and it appears to be fine through 4/25.
