MC7 Guide Data

Does anybody know where MC7 gets its Guide data for the UK Freeview channels?

AFAIK the data comes from a Microsoft server automatically. After a retune I sometimes have to R-click a channel, edit channel, edit listings and pick the correct one. Some of the newer UK Freeview channels don't seem to be on that list, but playing the relevant station picks up the epg from the stream.

No Cable Digital Guide Data
My HTPC using Windows 7 Media Center/QAM tuner sees the digital channels as odd numbers; ABCHD is channel 901, however it shows up as 1008.901. All analog guide data is present, however, no digital guide data showing regardless of what digital channel. Anyone know how to resolve?
