Yesterday I rescanned for channels in WMC, and now it has lost all the guide data.

EPG collector is set up to run as a windows task, and has been working fine.

Is there a way I can force WMC to load the data?

In the past it just seemed to load up the guide in its own sweet time. I don't know if its being slow or there's a problem.

PS I ran EPG collector immediately after the rescan and there is still no guide 24 hours later.

Was EPG Collector set to auto map the data?

Ummm well I thought it was but when I looked, that box wasn't ticked.

I ticked it, saved it (yes I'm sure), and rerun EPG Collector but still nothing, restarted pc, nothing, restarted WMC, nothing, rerun EPG, restarted pc, etc etc.

Still nothing.

Recreated collection parameters using Auckland infill dvb-t setup just as in the past, added 3 x Auckland skytower frequencies for good measure, stuck tongue out, clenched buttocks, drank blood of white cockerel, held breath, and....it is now working.

It's all very strange, but it works now, and that's all that matters...

Thanks for the quick reply!

You only need 1 frequency. Take the others out as they collect the same data.
