I had the same thing happen (too many download failures during TV setup)marvin-miller wrote:I had a years old MC install (Windows 7) and managed to even get it over to the new guide with little issue (other then the poor listings quality that Rovi is becoming well known for).
However, the other day the computer kaffed and I had to do an O/S re-install. I installed all the updates and....guess what....it refuses to download any guide info. A message pops up during setup saying that there were too many guide updated failures etc.
I can look at the firewall logs, I can see that it's connecting to Microsoft with no issue, but it's not pulling down any listings. It does pull down the correct channels though - just no guide data whatsoever.
Has anyone got any clue on how to fix this?

Go here and do the steps in post #1501 (you may want to read post #1512 also). This should bring your EPG back under Rovi.
