    Although it looks like I see this problem a lot on the message boards, I'm not sure if I correctly did the solution. I am connected to the internet and my date and time are correct. Media Center is telling me that the guide download is successful, but for every single channel, it is displaying "No Data Available". I have tried doing a system restore to an earlier point, and I still have the same problem. It has been like this for just over a week. Is there anyone with a solution to this problem? Thank you in advance.

  2. I've had this exact problem for over a month now...no changes made to the
    system, download of EPG completes successfully, but no data is available
    when entering the guide. Fortunately, we're at the time of year when there's
    not all that much on TV, but it's still annoying. Hopefully you have better
    luck than I did at solving it.

    Have you tried resetting your guide lineup?

    Settings -> TV -> Guide -> Reset Guide lineup

    Have you checked to see if it is a problem with your particular provider
    ? In the US the data is provided by www.zap2it.com. Try going directly to
    the website and see if there is any info for your provider. I know that in
    the past Comcast stopped listing for my town explicitly and I had to change
    to the next town over (same lineup, just different name). The old listing
    was still on the site, but no info was provided.

    I tried resetting the guide lineup. I tried going to zap2it.com, and the guidelineup was correct with my zip code. Any other suggestions, or has anyone solved the problem on their computer?
