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.

The other WMC PC, worked ok, I did have to setup tv signal again, but no flushing needed.
