Windows 7: TV Guide not updated when cable company changed listings

Thanks everyone for the help, and especially to dsperber for the link for posting to zap2it. When I got up this morning, I thought I would download the latest guide before posting and trying all the mentioned items. When it finished, Praise the Lord, my new channels were there and the guide is back to 11 days . So your guides should go past Dec 26/27 on the next guide update.

Thanks a bunch,

Ray

Here is the link - Windows Media TV Guide No Update Seems that some are reporting that a fix has been implemented and are confirming that it has solved the issue. However, I am in New York City and my WMC guide is still not updated even though the Zap2It.com listing is fully updated. I just updated my WMC guide here at 4:55 PM on December 23, 2011 and I am still missing channels even though they are listed on the associated Zap2It.com guide. Specifically, my WMC guide does not show MSG-HD channel 578 on FiOS Digital.

You might give my previously described solution a try... namely deleting all of your currently scheduled upcoming recordings, including "series".

Then re-do the WMC TV setup, and re-get channel list for your zipcode/provider. Then edit channels, and create your Favorite Channel lists. Then re-create your scheduled recordings... picking up the new channel numbers.

The emptying of all future scheduled recordings worked for me when TWC/LA revised their channel lineup last year. Something about the residual scheduled recordings for the old channel numbers seems to have been what prevented WMC from doing what it should have been able to do by itself.
