Windows 7: No data available for some guide channels

No data available for some guide channels

Hello all,
Most of my channels have guide data available, but a few do not. Channel 15 is Fox, but 15.1 is Fox in HD. Channel 15 has guide data, so I can see whats on and record programs. But 15.1 has "no data available" so I'm unable to schedule recordings on it. 15 = 15.1 for all programs and times tho.

Is there a way to have MC copy 15s guide data to 15.1?

I'd like to record Fringe in HD if possible!

Go to Tasks > Settings > TV > Guide > Edit Channels. Click channel 15.1 Fox HD. Click Edit Listings in the right side menu. Scroll to your channel 15 Fox, click it. Click Save.

Should work.

I had the same problem (No Data Available in all channels in the MC EPG). However, I could still watch live TV. I found this fix.

Root cause: I was using a "digital" TV Tuner rather than "analog" TV tuner card.

Solution: Swap out digital TV tuner card for an analog TV tuner card and rerun setup.

Since the packaging in which the TV tuner cards are sold can be arcane, possibly others have the same issue.
