Missing Guide (not just data, but the whole guide)

#1

Post by penfolddt » Sun Mar 17, 2019 2:05 pm

Admittedly this could be more of a Win7 WMC issue than EPG123 but after installing the latest version (after my tuners magically disappeared) every time I try the Live TV setup and per the install instructions say no to the Guide Terms of Service, there is no guide at all in WMC just the recorded tv and live tv options.

I've worked through the not data issues before but have never had the entire guide disappear.

Thoughts?

Thanks
Duane

Quick update,,, I was able to get everything back up but needed to agree to the Terms of Service and use a zip of 10000 (00000 gave me West Coast USA K-Series channels)
All appears to be back to normal but will update this post if the issue returns

There is a registry setting that needs to be set In order to see the guide. This is done at the end of the setup process as well as checked when either GUI is opened.

Open a GUI as administrator and check the trace.log file for any errors or warnings concerning the registry.

Code: Select all

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Media Center\Settings\ProgramGuide]
"fAgreeTOS"=dword:00000001
"strAgreedTOSVersion"="1.0"
The registry entries to make the guide appear.
