About a week ago the tv guide info disappeared on my tv. I only have over the air antenna input. I reset it by changing zip code, but it did not reload the info after several overnight off cycles. I then cycled power and went through complete setup, but still am not getting any tv guide information. I wondered if this information was no longer being broadcast in the Indianapolis, IN area but can't find any information to support that thought. Just looking for help at this point on how to get it back. The clock also does not pick up the correct time - I had to change it to manual to set the correct time.

This OTA TV Guide service has apparently been discontinued:

I have a PDP4280 with the same problem, no TV Guide (EPG). How do you set the time manually? THe on;y plave that I've found that the time is updated is through the downloaded guide. It's annoying not having the correct time displayed on an expensize TV.

Yeah it does seem kinda stupid that you can't manually set the TV's clock, but i just realized that i never use my TV's clock function so is having it on your TV very useful? Since the TV Guide service is no longer available i would think that you don't need the TV to keep time any more.
