Reply Eric July 23, 2015 I am having the same issue. Reply Deb July 26, 2015 I still cannot scan and find more than 13 channels, 2, 7, 9 and 12 are still missing. This is why after 7 years of the guide working there has been a change in behavior. HD channels do not play smoothly Back to top This is a known limitation of the current player. my review here

Reply RanDen August 31, 2015 Found a way around the guide not populating issue in Windows 7. I am about to clear the whole system and start over but I am hoping there is one more thing that someone tried but has not yet mentioned. Please call your cable operator and report error code 161-0 to have this problem resolved. Reply Cameron Fuller July 25, 2015 For feedback to Microsoft I would recommend adding your thoughts to the connect link that is early in the blog post. https://www.sevenforums.com/media-center/140395-not-getting-all-channels-wmc.html

If it did change, then this indicates that your provider unpaired or reset the CableCARD. If the device you are accessing from is using a wireless connection, try a wired connection. Either the ffdshow audio decoder, or DirectVobSub. We look at each issue report of missing data for specific zip codes and providers to clean up the data feeds.

If you are using a cable provider that uses switched digital video technology (including but not limited to TWC, Brighthouse, Charter, and Cox), check with your provider to determine if a My DNS server is set to google, did complete ipconfig/dnsflush, ran windows update several times. So here is what I have to do to get the Qam channels working, I have to add them manually to Media Center and then I have to edit the channel Reply Cameron Fuller July 25, 2015 It may be worth trying one of the zip codes for another area to see if that will work at least for some of

Still no luck. There must be a way to add channels AND the associated guide data. Just set up my tv and works great. http://www.thegreenbutton.tv/forums/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=8607 I was down to about 100 gigs of free space and was moving stuff over to a spare external drive and couldn't get the space back, like to know what maneuver

The provider will typically need to change the hub or headend setting associated with the card in their system. connect the DirecTV through the video / RCA jacks.

July 23, 2015 Thanks. If the issue persists, please open a trouble ticket. Richard Gunther To select a different provider, you probably should go through TV Setup again. ROVI left the Shreveport area channels out of the list for my zip code so WMC only scanned for the Longview and Tyler stations.

Do not continue past this step, go back and try another local zip code. this page I have contacted Rovi and my cable company to see if they can update the EPG. Alas, no so. Reply Dale July 25, 2015 No Joy I even tried yours… Reply Nicole July 25, 2015 Also having trouble here in Houston.

Contact the provider and ask them to perform a "cold init" or "DAC init" on the card. Thanks bonobo says: 6 years ago Phillip is dead on. If a channel does not have a name entered, it will not show in the list. get redirected here I am considering installing it and seeing how it performs on my windows7 os, before I commit to windows 10.

From discussions on this thread and recommendations from ewtaylo1 (huge thanks!) I was able to put together a workaround which works for my system and from feedback I've received in twitter Reply Bob Headrick July 24, 2015 Arrgh - am I the only one who thinks it is "strange" that I and many others will decline to move to WIndows However Mediacom has not provided the Clear QaM channel listings to zap2it.com, therefor the Media Center Guide will not have any content Logged MediacomChrisL Global Moderator Hero Member Posts: 14354 Mediacom

I put in zip code 11111, and ran the setup, and after that it gave me Rovi. Reply Spencer July 29, 2015 I tried your zipcode and that failed miserbaly. For details and a full list of zip codes which the community has reported as functional, see the excel spreadsheet. Reply Cameron Fuller July 26, 2015 Thank you to all of the folks for their positive feedback and to everyone who is providing additional working zip codes and other useful

Both times got no additional channels found. and -, compare this to the channel listed in the Tune column for that channel in HDHomeRun Setup, and uncheck the ones that don't match. For HDHomeRun PRIME, we recommend the latest beta from http://www.silicondust.com/forum2/viewtopic.php?t=2484 due to improvements with device discovery. useful reference The issue was easy to see when opening the guide which looked a lot like the screenshot below.

Many larger cable providers, including Comcast, RCN, TWC, Charter, Brighthouse, and Cablevision, have begun encrypting all channels they carry.
