Taking a look at the trace.log file would help, but my first guess would be to open the client and click the Match by [# Number] button to map the listings to the channels.

Reinstalled Win 7 and EPG123. Now there is no data in the programming guide. "NO DATA" for every channel. It looks like EPG123 executes correctly, exit of 0. Any ideas?

Did you look at the trace.log file and click the Match by: [# Number] button?

Not sure if this is the right place for this, but here goes:

My wife noticed that recurring programs (such as the late-night and Sunday morning shows) are getting only generic descriptions in the program guide, as opposed to the usual specific info on topics and guests. We use Schedules Direct via EPG123.

Has anybody else noticed this, and what can we do about it?

I would need some examples to say whether it is an issue or not, but for the late-night shows... you will typically only get the next few or maybe a week's worth of episode information. Basically the networks are mostly sure at that point on who the guests or what the topics will be for the near future. Going beyond a week for those types of shows is a gamble and the guide will typically be generic.

Same probably goes for your Sunday morning programs.

Sorry for the delay in replying, it's been a crazy few days.

Yup, it was the lack of guest listings even for this week that had wife concerned. But by the next morning (Monday) everything seemed to be OK. The overnight schedule update must have taken care of it.

Thanks for getting back to us on this!
