    I have the same problem, The Guide Plus screen says " there is no data for this screen." This has happened before that were solved by complaints to Time Warner. I am tired of doing this and will look for for options to replace TWcable.

    Same problem here; it started again several weeks ago. Time Warner rep blames it on my wiring/gear, which is complete BS. This has happened on occasions before (to everyone in our town that uses the Time Warner analog cable service) and TWC has fixed the problem each time. This time, however, they seem to be sticking to their guns. I have called them multiple times and got different reps. The one consistent theme is that they say it is not a service they provide so now they cannot fix it. I could be wrong, but I believe TWC is blocking the communication required for these services to work properly.

    Same problem here. Called Time warner and they gave me the same BS about it not being a service or something they provide. Did not seem to phase the rep when I told her I have not had problems for about 8 years but the service quite some time in October 2008 for me. The rep I talked to made tried two different "Resolution specialists" and none of them have claimed to ever hear about it. When I asked if there was someone else that I could talk to that would know about this the answer came back that the resolution specialist was very experianced and had "2 Years" with the company and they have never heard of such a thing. Can you imagine that? 2 whole years? I tried everything to get it going again on my own with no luck. Guess it's time to switch to satelite.

    I have the same problem EXCEPT it only happens on one TV but not the other, also on the same cable coming into our apt. And last night, the Guide actually showed infomation about shows, but today it seems to be gone, again only on one of the two TVs in our house. So go figure!
    I think it must be some button, or something, on the box or remote that somehow blocks out the info.
    I will call customer service on Jan 2nd.

    My listing disappeared about a month ago, too. I called our cable service, technician came out & checked everything, did setup again (which I had already done several times) and he said he didn't know what else to do. It's still not working and I don't know what to do.

I called TimeWarner Cable tech support, and the solution is to unplug the power to the box, after 1 min plug back in, let the box reboot, and PRESTO, this time around, the guide should be working.
Note--this is a solution for the problem of online guide that is showing No Data in the boxes, but is bringing up the grid of times/channels/date.
If you can't get the Guide at all, I don't know if this solution works.
Good luck.

RCA TV with Guide Plus that no longer receives guide at night

Please clarify what you are getting. Is the Guide Plus coming up with no programs listed? If so, it may be that you lost power and the set has to be turned off overnight to "reload" the program schedule. If that is not the problem, have you recently changed to digital through a digital receiver? You need to have your analog antenna connected to receive the program listings. You may have to install a splitter to have both the digital antenna and the analog antenna connected. I have an RCA with Guide Plus and ran into the same problem, but solved it by reconnecting my analog antenna and leaving the set off overnight to reload.

Guide Plus on RCA television

My guide quit working also on my RCA 61" big screen and I called the cable company and he said something about the encryption data had changed and I needed to call RCA to find out what to do and the whole time trying to sell me a converter box. It is the cable company's fault or the guide wouldn't have put that message up to start with. We all need to call the FCC!!!

Called the cable company..they said they don't block the signal. sooooo..

first..i unplugged the tv from the power source, and unplugged the cable from the wall. left both off for an hour, and reconnected power and cable.

entered the guide set up...changed the zip code from the area where i actually live to the zip code of the cable provider for my area. here on maui, there is only one provider.

used the editor in guide plus to turn on and off the channel line-up according to the published channels listed in my area tv guide.

24 hours later...voila..!! it WORKS..!! good luck..!!

Have you tried just hoooking up the DVD player by itself? Is the DVD player output setting correct? Also, make sure the "video input" is set for the correct channel that you are viewing (i.e. Channel 3).
