Direct tv guide is not updating

As always, whenever you're going to do anything that may be invasive to your Myth TV setup, make sure you backup your database.If your data source (zap2it/schedulesdirect) has already picked up the new lineup, the normal update script, mythfilldatabase, seems to do this job really well.

On the remote control, press and hold down the EXIT key until you see a confirmation that your receiver has been set for standard definition." This is a problem for anybody who has an SD-only slingbox, or who is using the SD output from their Direc TV receiver that recieved the HD guide update (Commentary: This is a totally bogus update that is entirely unneccessary--They could downsample the guide easily! The problem is this: Holding down EXIT on slingplayer doesn't emulate the action of holding down EXIT on the Direc TV remote, and as such, if you leave on a trip for a week and forget to switch your receiver to SD before you go, you won't be able to see any user interface on the receiver through Slingplayer.I was hoping you guys could reply with a way around this problem.Here are several things to try if you experience Direc TV box lagging: Defrag your Direc TV Box 1. Wait while your DVR completes the defragment process.This can take a few hours, depending upon the amount of data stored on your receiver.Today, when I went to look at the TV Lisings, a message popped up saying "Guide Listings will be out of date in fewer than 3 days. So I click on the Download button, and a few seconds later I get the message "Guide Listings were downloaded successfully." But, for each TV channel listed, it says "No Data available".

I have exited Windows Media Center, rebooted the computer, but still no TV listings, which means I can't record TV shows (other than waiting for the show to start and manually recording)On my Windows 7 computer, I also got the message about downloading the latest guide listings, which I did, and it was successful.

That tells me it is not a problem with my internet connection or firewall.
