Stuck in Live TV Setup


Post by dlpalumbo » Mon Sep 16, 2019 3:21 pm

I am trying to update EPG123. A reinstall didn't work as last step of 'Save and Execute' function (transfer files?) stopped without completing at various percents. So I tried a clean install.

I get to Step 2 and begin Live TV Setup. I 'Do Not Agree' and click OK. WMC then goes to program download page and waits. Forever.

How do I recover from this?

Updating EPG123 just requires the install file to be run... it simply replaces the executables with the new ones and you are done.

With a [Save & Execute] not finishing, and your WMC getting stuck on the Download page, I suspect you may have, or had, some network problems. For EPG123, you can look at the log file and see if there were timeouts occurring when downloading from SD.

To get back to where you were, you can use the client (as administrator) and click the [Restore] button... find the zip file that was created when you first decided to start with a Step 1 client setup. Once that is done, you will need to click the [Manual Import] button to import your MXF file which contains the guide listings.
