    ABOUT A MONTH AGO MY CABLE COMPANY UPDATED FOR HDL AND MY GUIDE PLUS WHICH I TOTALLY USED WAS NOT SHOWING ANY INFO JUST STATED NO LISTING ON ALL STATIONS.....

    I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW HOW TO GET THIS BACK AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. THE GUIDE PLUS OPTION WAS ONE OF THE REASON WE PURCHSED THE TELEVISION.

    I have the same problem and I'm using Continental cable, I will try hooking up an antena and see if this makes a difference. This also started the first of 2009 or there abouts.

    I had the same problem with the same message about my cable company blocking input. I called Thomson electronics, and they put someone on the phone who went through some diagnostics with me on the Guide Plus menu. After about a week, they told me it had something to do with their broadcast, and it was magically fixed. That lasted about a week and a half, and now I'm back to square 1. Same problem all over again.

    I have a RCA 61" TV also purchased in 1999. All of a sudden a couple months ago the guide plus stopped working. I have two RCA's and neither one works. I love this feature ad would like to get it working again. I have Knology cable. Does any one have an idea on how to correct this problem?

The guide plus needs to reset itself over night. But as long as you are only connected to cable it will not allow for it to reset. You need a two way splitter the cable company signal will go in one side and the outside antenna or what ever you were connected to before cable will go on the other connector. The single side connector will go to the tv. Where the splitter says 'in' you will actually be using it as out to the tv. Where the splitter says 'out' you will be using as in for the cable and the other antenna. Guide Plus is built into your tv and needs the tv to be off to reset over night.

You're cable company may have quit using TV Guide info from "TV Guide", because they want you to get their box for this info, or to save expense. It happened here in Michigan about a year ago. If you have local ABC, NBC, and PBS stations, you can get this info downloaded nightly through an external "over-the-air" antenna.-- assuming you're in the U.S.

Here is a whole forum discussing this.

It sounds like you need to reset your local zip code to 99999 then unplug the TV for at least 12 hours. Then plug it back in, reset to your real local zip code and go through the guide setup menus.

Guide plus on my rca p52937 tv


You are right, the Guide Plus is transmitted to your tv over the air. If you have a cable company supplying your programs, your Guide Plus will not receive a signal to set up. You will need to get a two-way splitter. It has two connections on one side and one on the other. The side that has one connection goes to your tv. The side that has two connections will connect to your cable supplier and the other to a rabbit ear or outside antenna. Then the tv has to be off over night to restore your Guide Plus.

Not receiving guide plus + tv listing -no problem until 2 weeks


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.

Mine stopped mid-
December. I used the old reliable 99999 as my zip code, turned off the tv for an hour, turned it back on, entered my correct zip code and was patient. Today, the 15th of January, it popped back up. I have a feeling that it is all due to the switch over. I think different cable companies are setting things up and the gude was lost during that time. Maybe if you are patient, it will pop back up also.

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!!!
