    Three RCA TVs all no longer have GuidePlus functions - no grid, channels, etc.

    Could not Thomson/Gemstar put a message on it telling us, the CUSTOMERS who bought RCA/Thomson for this capability, what's going on ???

    Can Run Setup successfully but will not load any info. Says no data available. Thinking it might be part of the whole swapping to Digital signal thing but no sure as it worked up until a few weeks ago

    Same problem. Stoped receiving updates three or four weeks ago. It's as if they are no longer broadcasting the info. I'm using Comcast's analog cable in Houston.

    My guide-plus has been gone now for months. A phone call to the Pro-scan people resulted in the woman telling me to contact my cable provider. What a joke!!!!

    Same problem, from reading the other post's..I'm guessing it's the gone digital..thing??

  • lisa_urso Mar 29, 2009

    I haven't been able to access Guide Plus for three weeks. The signal is completely gone now.

  • nospam739 Apr 01, 2009

    same problem! no tv guide. I was told by an engineer at Antietam cable that this service by "GEMSTAR" was being broadcast (under contract or some kind of agreement) by our local PBS or MPT station. The contract is over and it will no longer be broadcast by that particular station. However, a new agreement was reached with another carrier (CBS I think) that has already started broadcasting the signal. I don't if this is true or not. He sounded like he knew what he was talking about. Yet I still have no TV guide!

  • gmcirvin Apr 14, 2009

    I have and the same thing happened to me.

  • bparisi77 May 10, 2009

    Mine has been out for 3 days. It gradually started posting "no listings" about 2 weeks prior to now. is there any one to complain to or fix this?

I had the same problem on my PC using a ATI Radeon TV card that came with Gemstar's Guide Plus+ program. My problem was related to the URL within the software that has changed. By going into the windows registry and changing the URL address for:


These changes put my system back to normal.
