I have a JVC HM-DT100U Digital VCR, with built-in ATSC tuner and it has an EPG (Electronic Program Guide). It works great, but it only works with the digital channels, and I can't tell you where it comes from? I believe it comes from the individual channels, but I don't know. And, I don't have cable, I use it for my OTA (over the air), but if I understand my instruction book, I see no reason to keep it from working with cable channels, unless the digital only would stop it. But, if you have digital cable, I would think it would work. I can't tell about something I don't know, but it works for OTA great.
On my tv, the one with the built-in ATSC tuner, I only get the info from the PSIP, that my Mits will decode. It sometimes shows the names of the programs, but usually it doesn't. It depends on the station, as they put out different information. I think different tuners are different, so different tuners get different results.
