RCA Scenium HDLP50W151 Guide Plus channel listing stopped updatin

I have an RCA Scenium HDLP50W151. My guide plus hasn't worked for the past couple of weeks. I've had this TV since December of 2003 and have never had a problem with the listing guide. I've gone through the entire setup again to make sure that that's okay and everything is fine. The guide just stopped updated and shows NO LISTING for every channel and even the time doesn't update and the guide is about twelve hours behind. Any ideas? Also, does the picture in picture feature not work anymore on this TV since the digital transition?

SOURCE: rca tv my guide plus has quit working

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.

Using RCA P61939 without Guide Plus


Guide plus still works even if you don't have the wand hooked up. In the setup section of the guide plus there are several questions that must be answered properly or it won't function as you would like. It maybe labeled as options as well. Thanks

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.

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!!!

Guide Plus


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..!!

Poor screen resolution and unable to get channel guide.


The channel guide is a service just like closed caption. Rumer has it that it's not going to be around for much longer. The only fix is to unplug set ..wait awhile till memory loss occurs...plug back up and do a setup. Nothing in the TV will cause partial guide. Weak signal could and cause fuzzy picture too. Complain to cable company. But brightness problem is something else.
