Media center epg not updating

Or if needs be a full on Open ELEC install with TVHeadend.

Beyond TV was the best of these DVRs for simplicity and ease of use.

This forces WMC to completely re download the epg from the ip address listed in your hosts file.

Users of Microsoft’s Media Center PCs report that their electronic program guides (EPGs) aren't downloading data, or are offering incorrect data, nobbling their ability to use their boxen as video recorders. I've just triggered a guide update that has an expiry date of 17 Sept.

In the Media Center feedback thread at users report receiving no data, data for the wrong location, images … It falls back to getting the EPG from the OTA data, which makes it a bit hard to spot exactly, but the HD channels have had a blank EPG here for about 2-3 days, so I'm guessing the web-based EPG went off the air about the 1st-2nd September. If you have 7 days then that's the standard over-the-air EPG data from Freeview.

Add to this the very obscure, and costly adaptors needed to get it working.

Plus the fact that you can NOT just pull the aforementioned EPGs straight from the source.
