Windows Media Center has used Zap2It as it’s guide data source for years. It doesn’t make sense for Microsoft to use multiple providers to get essentially the same data, so starting today Microsoft is converging their guide data.Microsoft is now releasing an update that will cause Windows Media Center to retrieve electronic program guide data from Rovi, the same source being used for the Xbox One.

Reader “AB” kindly pointed out the mess and that Microsoft has form messing Media Center customers about, notably when its EPG service went dark in 2013.

However, a lot of people have had problems getting their guide data updated since the switch in providers.

It’s also worth noting that you should watch the behavior of your recordings over the next few days.

There’s a possibility that some series and single recordings may not record as scheduled.

Users of Microsoft’s Media Center PCs report that their electronic program guides (EPGs) aren't downloading data, or are offering incorrect data, nobbling their ability to use their boxen as video recorders.

In the Media Center feedback thread at users report receiving no data, data for the wrong location, images for the wrong show and many variations on those themes. In early July Microsoft announced it was moving its EPGs to “new data providers”.In some cases you may be required to walk through the TV Setup experience again.We’re not sure on what specifically could cause you to walk through TV Setup again, but we were told by Microsoft that it is a possibility for a small number of customers.Since the launch of the Xbox One console, it has included live TV control and an integrated EPG in some markets.We’ve always assumed that the Xbox was pulling that guide data from the service as Windows Media Center.Therefore, as long as the Xbox has guide data, so would Windows Media Center.
