Medica Center functioning fine one day the next day the program guide showed "No Data Available" on all channels and sys tray icon displays "Media Center stuck on "Downloading Program Guide, 0 Percent Complete" and it never changes. Shut down and restarted, rebooted, etc and same condition.

I can watch live tv and start recording manually but scheduled shows can record because program guide has no data.

Is the computer online? Are you able to browse the web using Internet Explorer?

Try running the setup for media center again, especially the TV setup. Also make sure your computer is fully up to date.
Good luck.

I went through the setup routine and the program found the right settings for my cable company then stalled at "Downloading TV Program Guide".

I rebooted the went through the routine again and it stalled again at the same place: 0 percent downloaded.

Additional note: when I rebooted and restarted Media Center it started something at 10 that should be taping at 11. I think the problem may have something to do with the time setting, though the computer time is set correctly. The initial problem with downloading the program guide started about a week ago which would coincide with the historic time for daylight savings time to change.

This update was supposed to be installed earlier but the log showed that it failed to install.

Media center is now working as it should.
