    Can any one help me? I just upgrades to MCE 2005 and have not been able to
    download any program guide info. It returns a "Code 20" and stops at about
    25%. Overnight, it tries to download and gets the same error. I NEED my
    program guide...it won't record anything without it.

  2. I am also having the same problems with the EPG after a windows update was
    done around 04/13/2005. I have the same equipment that I always had and no
    changes have been made to my computer. I have Norton Internet Security and I
    even tried disabling it but no luck.

    Troubleshooting: You may try to do all of the following and see if it
    helps. None of these steps worked for me though!

    Note: Try at your own risk!

    1. Reset eHome folder

    a. Go to: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application
    Data\Microsoft\eHome and delete the whole contents of this folder (make sure
    Media Center is not running).
    b. Restart the computer
    c. Re-configure your TV signal and also your Internet connection
    d. Try to download the EPG again.

    2. If you have a Linksys rounter check MTU configuration

    a. Go to the router settings
    b. Check the MTU settings, if it is at Auto with 1500, then change it to
    manual at 1492 and save your changes.
    c. Try to download the guide again.

    3. Turn off Firewall and try to download again (Note: Please try at your own
