Hope this crap is fixed soon...
I added it as well...
7 other people already upped it...
Anyway possible to roll back to Zap2it ? Registry hack or anything ?

I use the OTA guide which was missing several channels. I was able to associate the OTA channels with guide listings from the local cable system. Problem solved, at least until they get their act together and fix it on their end.
I'll have to check this out, the big problem that I am having is on a channel that is OTA in my area too... I registered it long time ago, The Guide Tool is a awesome little program, well worth the $5 donation for it...if not more.
Maybe the OTA guide data for my channel will fix the above issue... It's a Band-Aid but, if it works, who cares ?

Upgrade to Windows 7, better performance and a better WMC than the final Vista version... No question a worthy upgrade for WMC.
