Within 10 minutes, we received a live TV picture and had downloaded the program guide for our area.
Once I put them in my HOSTS file it FINALLY worked!
So is the guide data working well for you now that the issue was resolved?
Rumor has it Live TV coming to XBox1 which would explain the guide update/change. Rumor has it Live TV coming to XBox1 which would explain the guide update/change. Most of the issues are able to be solved by using the third party Guide Tool program but in my case there are OTA channels with no guide service available and with guide service that got the timezone wrong.
It has been rumored for a while that M$ will back the xbox 1 a media center. It has been rumored for a while that M$ will back the xbox 1 a media center. Anyone having guide issues should definitely read this Green Button thread, many users have been able to overcome/fix guide issues ( myself included ) due to the changeover. I've submitted tickets to Rovi and to Microsoft but no response from either party. I've also got Tivo and even they can't seem to get all of the guide data right but do respond to tickets and are working on it.
Remember people in the last 2 years have paid 100 bux to get media center as an addon to Windows8 so for them to really screw things up could legally and monetarily bite them in the ass if someone was smart enough to start a class action.
I'm not saying this issue is worthy of legal action yet that's still to be seen as the day's and weeks go by.
They include: support for the Media Center functionality built into the Xbox 360 game console; support for up to four TV tuners, two standard-def, two over-the-air high-def; support for new (but rare) 200-disc DVD changers; a new power-management mode, called Away Mode, which provides instant on/off functionality; tweaks to the DVD-burning engine included in MCE; new zoom modes for stretching images to fit the aspect ratio of your display; and support for various languages and localities around the world.
Other improvements long sought after by users, such as Cable Card support, will likely not appear before the release of Windows Vista.
(10/18/05) When Microsoft first introduced the Windows XP Media Center Edition (MCE) two years ago, the biggest complaint we had about the operating system was that it held recorded TV captive and produced poor-quality video playback.
Last year's MCE 2004 OS improved on both fronts: video, while not perfect, looked watchable, and the OS gave you a sensible method for burning DVDs in a format that played on consumer DVD players.
Plus MCE 2005 also now supports dual TV tuners, which means you can watch one channel while recording another.
