Also, I should be clear that SOME of the channels show programming info.
For instance, channel 7 (CBS) has no data, but 7.1 and 7.2 do. thanks System Manufacturer/Model Number Dell XPS 15 L502x OS Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1 CPU Core i7-2670QM Memory 8GB DDR3 PC3-10600 Graphics Card Intel HD Graphics 3000 + Ge Force GT 540M Screen Resolution 1920x1080 kegobeer, thanks for the suggestion.
MY updates are set up to install automatically, but just to be safe, I checked and had some updates it said I needed to install.
I even checked my firewall and just to be sure, added Windows Media Center to the safe list. There *has* to be a reason why this is not working and it drives me nuts that I can't figure it out.
Perhaps a corrupt guide database or file or something?

I've had Media Center running fine for about 5 months - since I installed Windows 7 on my htpc.
Recently I've noticed that some channels in the guide show "No data available" where the TV show name would be.
I've tried re-downloading the guide by goingto settings - download new guide but this gives me an error after about 1-2 minutes saying it couldn't download the new guide.
It also says I should right click on the media center icon in the system tray and open up the update log.
When I do this, I don't have an option to view any log file.
I have these options: Open Windows Media Center Update Data Now Cancel Update Enable Automatic Updates (this is checked) So I'm at a loss.
I can't find the Update Log to see what went wrong when I tried to manually download the guide. I've done a bunch of searching and found other people who have had this problem, but I have yet to find a solution.
It shouldn't be a firewall issue since I haven't made any changes to those settings.
