I have a very unique situation for which Zap2it had/has the data, Rovi doesn't and likely never will. I'm trying to record AFN (Armed Force Network) channels. Normally, these channels are only...

There's nothing laughable about a free guide (in case of WMC). Everyone makes a value judgement - to me $25 a year is not worth it when for the few times I may want to record there's a free...

That was my point - you installed Win 10 as a preview (tho 10240 was the RTM version) and didn't let the system upgrade from Win 7 to 10. The Insider Preview PCs will not have a key generated to...

I'd venture a guess that most subscribers less than 50 Mbps+ service in which case even with a Docsis 3 modem they are only using one channel - and both modem types can use that channel.

How does a 2 modem eat BW that the 3 model doesn't? That letter is BS and they are trying to get you to buy the 3.0 modem through them. You only need a 3.0 modem if you want to get 50 Mbps+ service.

I went through the TV signal setup process on WMC, it switched to Rovi but with the zip code set to 92518 it does not have a listing for March AFB like zap2it did. Now what?
