Mediaportal schedules direct not updating

3/16/2016 update: I have received reports that the guide is now updating correctly and in my environment it now has program data until the 29th so this issue appears to be resolved now.

Recently I found that no programs were scheduled for recording on my Media PC.

This is pretty much unheard of in my household so this started ringing some alarm bells.

I am also on a discussion with Rovi on this via Twitter.

A subset of their comments are listed below and were provided by a forum on The Green Button: Open.

From this article ( we can see that Electronic Program Guide (EPG) data was converted from Zap2It to Rovi.

This conversion appears to have been the cause of having no television guide information available in Windows Media Center after July 20 I recommend avoiding the tasks above if you media center system is currently working but is just missing the guide data.

Workaround Details: The steps which I took to work around this issue are as follows: You can put in your own zip code and find others around you.

As an example if you live in Houston: UPDATE: I have gathered all of the valid zip code information which I’ve been able to find online and combined it at: https://com/redir? 52294 A failure to get data for the zip code you entered will show up with an error like the one shown below.

I want to assure you all that we are working on those issues, however.
