Any one else notice that the guide data is starting to truncate again?? My data for TCM is now ending on Aug 14. Everything is downloading but the amount of data is low, perhaps TCM isn't supplying much in advance to Rovi or we're on the brink of another issue. Just something to watch for right now.
yep me2 on spectrum cable.

Mine also ended on 8/14, but I just initiated a download and now have data out to 8/16. It seems that it skips a day or two, or three, from time to time...

yep me2. My data is out to 16th now too.

But an everyday 3:30 AM scheduled update did it.

"....anyone who cares can use an alternative EPG, because WC is not dependent on Microsoft's EPG." What is the procedure to keep or get the EPG, especially if MS stops supporting it?

As of today (August 4 2019) the guide runs to Aug 16 and TCM has 148 entries....that's my indicator of how things are running, it was down to 80-90 titles when I wrote the above but it seems to have picked up.

We've got a whole subforum covering an alternative.

For some of us... (I can't be the only person) seldom do I have guide issues with Rovi.
