Media center epg not updating

Media Forum does not provide any media files itself.

For several years Windows Media Center has been working without any problems.One commenter on the Windows Experts Community forum outlined his frustration in using what Microsoft describes as "the hidden gem of Windows": Many angry Register readers have emailed in regarding the issue, some describing themselves as "distraught" by the loss of the online Electronic Program Guide or EPG.Some Media Center users (including a Reg staff member) have been unaffected, as Windows 7 and later editions of the software can read the EPG transmitted as part of the UK Freeview terrestrial TV signal, and so do not require any online updates to populate those channels.It could be that the fault lies with Red Bee, which holds a contract with Microsoft to provide Electronic Program Guides for Windows Media Center in Europe.Red Bee uses the contract as a case study on its site and boasts that it provides the single source of European EPG metadata for the Microsoft Media Center.
