Question about RCA 27V530T 27" TV

Open Question

Guide Plus on 32in RCA stopped working

Is there a solution to the getting the Guide plus to work again. I have tried setting it up numerous times and it keeps telling me that no show information is available at this time. What can I do? Guide Plus stopped working completely. 32" TV. Installed in RV. Was hooked to cable at the time. Have tried "over the air" and digital converter box, no help. Have tried Yuma Az, Sacramento Ca, and Reno Nv. Seems like the service has been discontinued by whoever supplies it. I have a RCA 27" with Gude Plus+ Gold. It worked great until last week, and now doesn't list the program listings. I checked to be sure the G-Link wand is in the correct place, but, still no guide. I hope this feature is not going away because of the upcoming HD takeover. Any other ideas what I might be doing incorrectly?

    I have a RCA 27" with Guide Plus+ Gold using Comcast cable service. The guide appears with no listings. This may be due to the mandated switch from analog to digital transmission. Does anyone know if this problem will be resolved?

    I have Guide Plus software that came with my ATI video card.
    I haven't been able to get a listings update since around that time (last week of 2008)

    I got the same problem as you guys.Mine just stopped around Feb.1.I have a RCA 20".I have had this TV in the bedroom for 9 years and the Guide Plus has never let me down even once...until now.Like someone else mentioned,its got to be because of the switch-over to digital.I'm already missing it badly.It was very accurate and it beat the heck out of trying to see whats on by going to that stupid TV Guide channel.Goodbye Guide Plus,I'll miss you buddy.

Channel 7 states it is showing The Chase today 12May but TV Guide when pressed does not show any The Chase


Shedules change I would think plus I would think an element of lazy and bone idle is creeping in, saw it in the early colour TV years when Teletext made its debut. At first hailed as a breakthrough for information and updates of all sorts, later it began to break down as more and more data was loaded on and tired little backroom workers could not keep up with changes!
Now its data plus so many channels, on earlier digital equipment (starved of cpu speed and memory for cost) it used to often update this data very quickly, as more channels grew it became an anchor slowing equipment down. Now I see some sets do not update as often or only when a user requests it (while you wait) just to keep that set working in other functions plus to save energy and make it look good.
I would think this problem will get worse as more channels are added and schedules checked or altered before release along with the fact they are possibly broadcast in bursts not as a constant stream (no doubt some techy can verify this) otherwise it would use up limited resources.
No doubt there will be a new version created like the old TV's Fasttext service, most written listings are to me only a guide as to what might be shown not set in stone as they very long ago once might have been.
Sorry if this is not what you expected.......

Our Guide Plus shows no listings. We have gone


This is For Guide Plus that comes with ATI TV Tuners

I got this in an e-mail from Macrovision and IT WORKS!!!
I deleted the files they said, and got a new error message, so I reinstalled Guide plus, left out that step, and GUIDE PLUS IS BACK!!

Please try belows instructions to see if that helps. Please back up any data and registry before going forward. We take no responsibility for any wrong doing. Please follow instructions carefully.
1. Delete all files in these directories:
C:\Program Files\Gemstar\GUIDE PLUS+(TM)\ATI\download
C:\Program Files\Gemstar\GUIDE PLUS+(TM)\ATI\panelad

2. Go to the computer's registry:
Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\GEMSTAR\ETV\URL
Find the strings:
"1"
http://www.gemstarguide.com/gdndl/gdnget.asp
"2" http://www.gemstarnet.com/gtidl/gdnget.asp
"URL" http://www.gemstarguide.com/gdndl/gdnget.asp

Change string "1" to
http://144.198.100.134/gtidl/gdnget2.asp
string "2" can be left alone
string "URL" SHOULD be

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.

There is no "plus equal" key!


press the plus key again, it should work. ie put a number in and press the plus key twice, it should double, and again it should double again and so on

Either the hardware has failed or your cable system or broadcasters do not provide this information. Frankly, with this chassis you should be glad it works at all.
