Guide populated but nothing scheduled to record

Denver Comcast.

I got the guide to populate, easily. My series recordings are there, but nothing is scheduled to record. What am I doing wrong? Thanks!

Need a little more information. Is this a clean start (Step 1) install of epg123, or is this strictly step 3 on top of Rovi data? Were the series recordings created with epg123 data, or is this a "restore" from a Rovi guide backup (Sean's WMC Backup)?

Thanks. I cleared out the guide first, then added in the EPG123 (clean install) and restored my old series recordings from the Rovi guide.

Do I need to write down all my series and make new ones with the new EPG123 guide?

Unfortunately, yes. I don't have the magic converter ready yet, so the manual rebuild is needed. Note that the manual rebuild is only necessary for Series Recordings, but Wish-Lists are okay to transfer.

Thought that might be the case. Thanks for the great program, and support! I've got some work to do... (125 series recordings :shock: )

The warnings section of the setup guide states the following:

Performing this procedure will come at some cost.
• All guide customization will be lost (callsigns, channel numbers, favorite lineups, logos, ...)
• All scheduled recordings will be lost
• TunerSalad users will have to reapply the "fix"
• My Channel Logos (MCL XL) users will have to repopulate logos
