    I did a reinstall of Windows 7 on my HTPC the other day and could not get any guide info during the setup for the tuners.  I thought it was a fluke but after trying everything I did a search.  It seems that Microsoft has changed who it gets its guide info from, and it’s causing problems for a lot of people.  I noticed when it did my ATSC tuners that it searched differently than it had in the past but didn’t pay much mind.  Also, it did not list my digital channels that I receive that are on VHF.  I had to add them manually and after that it worked.  It’s like the scan doesn’t show what your tuners CAN receive; it shows what the guide BELIEVES you can receive for your area.

    Anyone else noticed this or heard about switching guides?

    They changed the provider for who handles the guide.  Huge thread about it on http://www.thegreenbutton.tv/forums/viewtopic.php?f=69&t=8903

    And it wasn’t exactly the smoothest rollout for people.

    To top it off, WMC users experience a complete stoppage of new guide information at least 4 times a year to the point where sometimes there are only hours left before the guide is empty. Hp printer in error state
