    When I run the setup for the TV Guide using my Postal Code (H3E 2A6), I
    obtain a list of cable providers, other than the one that I am using. The
    cable provider in my area is VDN Cable Inc. Any idea what postal code would
    work to obtain VDN as a provider?

    Hmm, VDN look to be a fairly new company. Are you using
    the digital package? Or the regular analog 74 channel.
    If it is the Analog package try using the Videotron non-
    digital listings to see if they match up.

    I had a quick look and it seems that most of the channel
    numbers match up.

    Thanks for getting back. In fact, I had already downloaded the non-digital
    Videotron guide. After channel 23 or so, the Videotron Guide is really
    different than my analog 84-channel VDN package (the 84 channel is a special
    package only offered in my area). The strange thing is that I believe the
    guides in Media Center are powered by Zap2It. If you follow the link
    "http://www.vdn.ca/EN/Res-TV-horaire.html" and click on "Go To TV Guide", you
    will see the interactive VDN Guide, powered by Zap2It. If you do not see VDN
    as the provider, click Home, Test Drive, Quebec, Montreal, ...

    That's an interesting one, the Zap2It site that comes up from the link is
    totally different from zap2it.com Let me do a bit more investigating

    Andrew, have you had the chance to do any further research?

    Try using the postal code H4A 2S6 to access the VDN lineup. I'm also
    subscribed to VDN and that provider is listed in MCE when I entered the
    above-mentioned postal code.
