Windows 7: Where is Guide/Channel data stored?

Where is Guide/Channel data stored?

Someone Please Help!? I need to know there the channel data is stored on the computer so I can make a backup. I have to do a clean install, and I spent hours moving channels and matching up ClearQAM with the guide. I don't want to go through it again. I can't figure out where that data is stored. Anybody have any idea?

Im clueless but suspect its stored in the applications data folder. If you know the name of a file you can search to find the location.

Might want to give ppl more information abt the app, your set up, etc

Well the app is Windows Media Center for Windows 7 and I am using Windows 7 Ultimate RTM x86. I assumed this forum was for WMC for Windows 7. All I need to know is where the channel listing data is stored so I can back it up. I've looked in the Appdata folder, but I don't see anything that clearly looks to be it.

Thanks! You are a google master! Now I feel stupid. I swear I did several google searches, but I must have worded them incorrectly because I couldn't find a damn thing.

corrupt TVThumb.db

after a long search for why ehvid.exe would use all available resources on my windows 7 64bit machine the solution for me was removing the thmb directory which was tried due to a suspicion there was a corrupt TVThumb.db

cmd.exe /c "rmdir C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\eHome\thmb /s /q"

unsuccessful attempts included
