    OK, the three main channels are now suddenly gone from my guide and of course
    all of the shows I record on these channels are also no longer scheduled to
    record. I have tried adding the channels, but they do not get listings when
    they are added. I have gone to http://tvlistings.zap2it.com and checked and
    the channels are listed there. Just seems funny to me that the 3 channels
    that are missing are the 3 most popular, and no other channels are missing.
    Did the big guys decide to make it more difficult to record programs with
    your computer or is it something else?

    I can still watch the stations and record by time, just can't get the show
    listings in the guide. I have downloaded new guide listings several times,
    but these 3 channels are gone from the guide list.

    what is your zipcode and provider?
    try a different zipcode, download the guide, then go back to your
    own zipcode and try again. what happens?

    I tried the same zipcode last night, but selected digital cable instead of
    regular cable and all the channels were loaded. I went back to regular cable
    and again, no CBS, NBC, ABC and I noticed that Fox was missing as well. Went
    back to digital cable and just removed all the channels that I don't actually
    get. Not sure what is going on, but the problem seems to be with the zap2it
    website and not with windows or some sort of conspiracy between the big
    stations. Thanks for all the replies guys!
