What are some troubleshooting scenarios with the Program Guide in Media Center?
Program Guide issues
I am unable to download the Program Guide.
I am not able to get any local listings.
The program times and names are incorrect in the Program Guide.
I changed the time zone but my Program Guide still displays incorrect data.
My Program Guide lists several channels that I do not subscribe to.
It is quite common that two TV networks share the same channel on a particular head-end, for example Channel A and Channel B - Channel A is available from 6:00 AM -6:00 PM and Channel B from 6:00 PM - 6:00 AM. Unfortunately, the data that Media Center receives (at least for U.S./Canada) does not filter out this information. By default, Media Center has no way of knowing when each network is actually broadcast. As a result, Media Center will pick one of these networks (the first one in the data feed) and only show programming information for that network.
This means that you may record programs that have incorrect programming information for them without knowing it. You will also not be able to accurately see what's on that channel using the Program Guide.
You have the option to specify which channel you want listed in the Program Guide by editing the channel lineup.
