For S's and G's I thought I'd try updating my office Windows 8.1 machine. It accepted my home zip code on the very first try and updated to the new guide without even a hiccup. If only this was my...

Believe me, I've tried. I'm in Austin and I've tried practically all of the zip codes radiating out from my home zip. Maybe I've missed a few, but I would think that at the very least the 78746 zip...

I went ahead and updated my Vista HTPC with the TV Pack software from 2008. I had to first install Service Pack 1 which took forever(I actually left it running over night), then the TV Pack update,...

I need a good zip code for the Austin area so that the Rovi guide will update. I feel like I'm just running in circles without one.

I set up my dad's Media Center system and he's been without guide data for almost a week now. I spent two hours on the problem yesterday, but could never find a zipcode that would actually return...

I have the TV Pack update archived back from who knows when, but never had the guts to try it. I guess there's nothing to lose now. Though I definitely don't have a fully updated Vista install. I...

Were you able to resolve this problem for Vista? I didn't even know anything was up regarding this guide data change until yesterday. I'd been having funny stuff happen to the guide, but I'd just go...

All clear QAM are gone for me. I suppose it's now time to install that antenna on my roof.

It would appear that Time Warner has blocked almost all of the clear QAM channels now, except for the broadcast locals. Bummer. I was enjoying my free Cartoon Network.

I couldn't get KTBC to show up in WMC even knowing that it appears to be on 7-3. Manually adding the sub channel doesn't allow it to come in. I think us media center users are out of luck until the...

Fox 7KTBC seems to be having problems. Windows media center won't tune it in and my other TV's show it as broadcasting the main channel on 7-3. I suppose that's why WMC is having issues.

There's always NextPVR. It, too, has an EPG that apparently works quite well for OTA situations.

That is a very thorough history of KCWX. I'll be honest and say that I didn't understand most of it, but it was still strangely intriguing enough that I did read all of it. :P At least there's...

I think KCWX is a figment of the imagination. Has anyone been able to pick up that channel using OTA? Anywhere? KBVO, meanwhile, should totally be obtainable if you're using a roof-mounted antenna....

Anyone ever experiment with NextPVR? It seems like it might be a viable alternative for us OTA-only people. I've just never seen much discussion of it here on this board.
