Windows 7 Media Center Scheduler Not Working

Reply Cameron Fuller July 28, 2015 The log file is just another route to validate that the zip code either is working or is not working. Bud July If in doubt, don't do anything. Found your Thread helpfull. Reply Eric July 28, 2015 Fred - Thanks for the tip re the zip code for Minneapolis / Saint Paul. 55402 worked for me. … and thanks also for the instructions, http://stickersweb.com/windows-7/windows-7-media-center-remote-not-working.php

Reply Alex September 21, 2015 This zip code worked for me. Then I tried to select all the events listed and save them that way but the file was to big to be uploaded and I wasn't sure that would help. I'm not sure what you wanted me to do. That does seem to be what is happening.

Reply Thomas Tipton July 25, 2015 Thanks for all the detailed instructions. thanx again Reply Cameron Fuller July 24, 2015 My understanding is that the Media Center features are not available in Windows 10 so I would be careful there if your system What a pain…. The user can recover a corrupted Guide data store back to the last known good state by running a Windows Media Center task from Task Scheduler. 1.Close Windows Media Center. 2.Open

  1. July 23, 2015 Thanks.
  2. Is it possible that you renamed you computer recently?
  3. I attempt to ping data.tvdownload.microsoft.com but I keep getting Request timed out.
  4. Could you remove this location (either by using Media Center GUI or editing HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Media Center\Service\Recording\WatchedFolders registry key)?

Still no luck. Did the trick after I tried about ten other ways of doing it. Launch Media Center and re-run live tv setup. Thanks for posting this!!

Thanks Cameron Reply mary December 22, 2015 Great post! http://servicedefaults.com/7/ehsched/ Reply Cameron Fuller July 26, 2015 Thank you Bert, glad to hear that this worked for you!

Last but not least If Windows not working quite right for you, or if startup is taking a long time, or ehSched.exe is causing problems for you, a good Registry Cleaner Dalboy says: October 15, 2012 at 7:24 pm Thanks very much. In the interim, having a list of acceptable zip codes would be a huge assistance for other people in the community who are running into this issue. To do this, start "Regedit", then look under "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" > "Software" for Media Center Scheduler service or the name of the producer.

One last thing before we get started. http://www.blackviper.com/windows-services/windows-media-center-scheduler-service/ Any help is appreciated. Reply Thank You! Reply Cameron Fuller July 23, 2015 I'm really glad that this post was helpful!

Got to love Microsoft…NOT! http://stickersweb.com/windows-7/windows-7-task-scheduler-display-message-not-working.php The zip code method is hit or miss and did not work at all for downtown Dallas or surrounding areas (tried them all). From this article (http://www.thedigitalmediazone.com/2015/07/08/microsoft-breathes-new-life-into-media-center-guide/) we can see that Electronic Program Guide (EPG) data was converted from Zap2It to Rovi. I tried this earlier waiting the twenty minute; received the media center error message but the setup[ still crapped out at the downloading local program data stage 6.

Reply Tammy July 24, 2015 Thank you…I will give this a try. I get no errors when updating the guide but all listing disappear on the 26th in my area (92804) tried other zips but still no data being downloaded. In Windows 7 it won't be started if the user doesn't start it. useful reference Paul (MSP, Minnesota) area and no dice.

Reply Cameron Fuller July 24, 2015 Your approach may work by removing and re-adding but then you lose all of your scheduled recordings.

Again excellent article and thanks for the warning about windows 10. When I go to "edit channels" I can see the digital channels, but no data is shown for the current program. The ehSched service is using the ehsched.exe file that is located in the %WinDir%\ehome folder. REG add "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\ehSched" /v DelayedAutostart /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f CMD: This method shows you how to Start/Stop and change Windows Media Center Scheduler Service from Command Prompt.

After applying this change, open a command window and type ipconfig /flushdns. Changing the zip from 80301 to 80308 (for Boulder CO) caused the guide to change from Zap2it to Rovi and that brought my listings back. You should now see a copy of the CBS folder appear on your Desktop called CBS. this page I found only one location and I deleted it.

UPDATE: 7/30/2015: If the instructions above do not work for you, see the comments from Marcus and Willow below for a second approach which is reporting success. I'm slowly fading. I need to work out what the name of the log that cannot be found is - and then I can fix it (already written a fix for the one I Us on ota antenna on win 7.

Did you run SFC as instructed? My guide no longer shows the programs for any of the digital channels (I have time warner "analog" cable, but get some basic digital channels). I am right between three major cities, but my zip only populates the channels for one city. Reply Cameron Fuller July 25, 2015 For the people on this thread who are having problems with analog signals, wifi only or need to be able to get programming from

Then start Windows Explorer and see if there is still a folder with the name of the software under C:\Program Files. Now I cannot get any nearby zip codes for Atlanta to work. Please try the request again. The issue was easy to see when opening the guide which looked a lot like the screenshot below.

Reply Jeff September 9, 2015 Just a quick THANKS - was able to just run the full set up again, and resolved the problem for me! (A couple "small" issues came Now you should be able to move all the content of the hidden folder C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\eHome\ to a safe place. (you'll need the contents later to restore your scheduled recordings. Any recommendations? LIfe is too short for this.

I had a catastrophic error on my Windows 8 machine and had to reinstall everything from scratch.
