Noob Question: How Can WMC make use of the guide?

#1

I'm thinking this has to be fairly simple but I have no idea how I get WMC in Win7 Pro to utilize this outside guide. Yes I did sign up to Schedules Direct, installed EPG123 latest build and did not notice anything strange during install besides "There was a warning during the last update." I checked the log file and the last line reads "Successfully forced a Media Center database configuration backup." Is there a WMC file I need to manually replace? What am I missing?

I just redid everything and I got it working. I think what I missed was telling WMC no during ‘Update TV Setup Data’ in the setup. I will have a new antenna on the way to my home so I'll be redoing everything again but I'm excited to discover this solution. Thanks for developing this.
