Not sure what happened.

When I click on "Guide Terms of Service" in media center I get a dialog that says "No Internet Connection".

Thoughts? Everything else works. Getting guide data and I can open web sites.

A very baffled Randy

IIRC the guide terms of service are downloaded from a Microsoft server when you click that. They have likely disabled the server or removed the file from the server.

Is everyone's Guide Terms Of Service showing a "No Internet Connection"?

A better question would probably be "Is anyone still able to see the guide terms of service?" Since Microsoft has discontinued guide service they aren't likely to provide any terms of service for a non-existent service. I'm pretty sure that the internet connection error message is a generic error caused by WMC no longer being able to find the terms at wherever Microsoft was providing it from.

That "No Internet Connection" message has been around for a while. During TV Setup it is still there since it is reading off a local text file, but the setting->TV->Guide->Guide Terms of Service has been "out of service" since way before Microsoft sudo-killed the guide.
