Is there a way to manually transfer guide data to your MCE?
« on: August 24, 2007, 05:13:49 PM »
Hi guys,
I am running a Vista Media Center with ICETV which is currently (due to a recent house move) without any internet connectivity and has been for almost a week. This means that my guide will run out for a little bit before internet connectivity is restored to it. I have other PCs that do have internet connectivity, so I was wondering if anyone knows of any way to download the guide data to one of these PCs and then manually transfer (what I presume is an XML file) to my MCE using a USB drive or something similar.
Any ideas?
Thanks for you time!
Pat.

No, this is not possible.

Media Center needs to download the guide data itself, as the file it downloads is compressed and also encrypted (its not just a straight download), and then the Media Center decrypts and decompresses the file and then also reads it into the guide database.
Regards,

Daniel.

No worries - thanks for the quick response. I'll just have to wait until my internet is connected! :)
