    I signed up just to post it does not work in the USA for OTA terrestrial EPG data.
    The program the few times I got it to actually try scanning, conks out with multiple errors. Yes I downloaded 4.3 and the MSI install file.
    It seems to have only DISHNETWORK for the USA as collection , so when it starts scanning of course you dont have DishNetwork and so the frequencies on ny ATSC use just OTA frequencies, I dont have a DishNetwork box.. Even if I unselect all TV cards for DVB, and just select any available for ATSC terrestrial, it still tries to scan DishNetwork frequecies.
    Then sometimes I get numerous BDA errors. It is too bad as MS has now discontinued the ROVI guide, so for me this program is a dud.

    There is something that we can use but its $25 per year. EPG123 and schedules direct.

    I will eventually look at this again, but for now went with schedules direct and EPG123 for the coming year which worked fine.

    I glanced at that thread and sort of found a link to a procedural PDF to follow, but the poster said he had left out steps and I dont think he updated the pdf. What I need is fully complete setup guide, and not assuming I already know something, so many guides on various things are incomplete. Maybe give it some more time to perfect the process.
