Can't download TV program guide, help

New win7 install then setup wmc.
did the following sequence
install ceton drivers
startup wmc custom
task/settings/setup tv signal
after selecting zip code
message: "downloadable TV program Guide listing unavailable"
no option to update guide as well
I have 2 other win7 working fine.
BUT
tried on another computer and it did download but normal options of 3 cable service providers went to almost 4 time more of different option for SD or HD and local or universal.
This is very new in setup.
But on this computer it never got that far.
Help!
Thanks,
Ray

I was faced with the same problem yesterday. It seems that Microsoft has changed providers for their program guide information. My problem was solved by applying patch #KB3078428, which was found in the optional updates section of Windows Update. After that, I did the setup TV options in WMC and everything ran fine.

Hope that helps.

Program Guide Not Updating.
Sorry if this has been posted before, I've searched on various forums and have had mixed results from years of this similar problem arising on XP and Vista as well. My Media Center no longer updates the program guide, making media center essentially useless. I've tried re-setting it like others...
