    Does anyone know if it's possible to change Media Center Guide Service
    Provider? Currently, it is using Zap2it but Zap2it does not present accurate
    information for Directv especially around the areas of Pay-per-view and
    Special events.

    Does anyone know if this can be changed? I've been on the Zap2it site and
    the information that is presented is similar to how it's presented in Media

    I would like more accurate presentation of Directv programming from Zap2it.

    Unfortunately, the choice of EPG provider is not user-configurable.

    Why is the Pay-Per-View information not made available?
    I have asked Zap2It, but they never answer the emails?
    Is this by design? Obviuosly they must have a reason.

    Perhaps 2 prevent DVR via TIVO, Ultimate TV and Media Center Edition...

    Probabaly an industry enforced thing?

    My Media Center Guide includes all the
    PPV channels for my digital Comcast
    cable service.

    So unless your cable provider does not
    want to supply those listings to Zap2It,
    I don't know why you don't get them in
    your guide.

    Did you try editing your guide listing,
    to see if they are there, but just hidden?

    Settings -> TV -> Guide -> Edit Guide Listings
