Windows 7 epg not updating
right-click Object Store Recovery Task, and click Run Let this run for about three minutes Reboot PC and re-open WMC. Go to Tasks- For anyone this is affecting, dump WMC and move to Kodi (formerly XBMC) using the Media Portal TV Server. I loved WMC but Kodi is way better overall - although the series recording isn't great by default. In the face of Win 10's lack of support, I tried 3 or 4 of them. I mostly only want to have a PVR and the 10-foot interface and official remote make this really easy.
You will receive a warning that WMC corrected a problem and will download the Guide EPG data again Tasks Set Up TV Signal Remember to use the zipcode from the MSN Rovi website! I could cope with any of the other options if they didn't look so amateurish and didn't have feature overspill. I do understand that viewers of encrypted channels or European (even US) users find it harder to make work - but for those of us with Freeview (& HD) and Freesat tuners in the UK, it's like it was a system designed by Microsoft just for us in Blighty.

Setup fails to change data sources for three reasons.

3) the task scheduler run removes your epg guide while you have a valid zip code.
This forces WMC to completely re download the epg from the ip address listed in your hosts file.
In the Media Center feedback thread at users report receiving no data, data for the wrong location, images … It falls back to getting the EPG from the OTA data, which makes it a bit hard to spot exactly, but the HD channels have had a blank EPG here for about 2-3 days, so I'm guessing the web-based EPG went off the air about the 1st-2nd September. If you have 7 days then that's the standard over-the-air EPG data from Freeview.Write it down, this will be zipcode that Setup needs.Example: For (Dallas/Fort Worth) use Zip Code 75227 Now let’s deal with issue 3. close WMC click start button type CMD in search box right click CMD and run as administrator Type "cd c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc" Type "notepad hosts" Add the following 2 lines .113 data.tvdownload.72.2 tvdownload.(if there are other lines in your file that are for data.tvdownload.or tvdownload.comment them out by placing a # at the beginning of the line) save the file and exit notepad in your cmd window Type "ipconfig /flushdns" click start button in search box type after task scheduler opens In the left tree expand Task Scheduler Library, Microsoft, Windows click on Media Center folder to highlight it In the upper window of the center section scroll through the activities under the Name column.
