Windows 7: Guide data works again on TV setup after flushing DNS cache

Guide data works again on TV setup after flushing DNS cache

After about 3 weeks of no guide data, and trying various things such as zipcode changes, I found this worked for me.
RECOMMENDED: Clearing the DNS cache.
This is a simple step and seems to be effective in some cases. To do this, open an elevated Command Prompt and enter ipconfig /flushdns. This removes old DNS entries from the cache and forces the machine to reacquire the proper IPís for our download URLís.

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?
