How to use EPG

I cannot get information regarding the use of EPG. After I configure the program guide and download the channels I get a list, which I never see again after I continue to the next step.
So what is the purpose of EPG. Please help.
Thank you for your assistance

P.S. I use the Pinnacle Pctv Pro Hard Stick(801e)

EPG or Electronic Programme Guide is the on-screen version of a tv guide for digital tv. The remote control usually has a dedicated button for the display of the EPG.

The information displayed is often incomplete and some digital boxes or tv sets perform better than others though in theory it needs no setting up. Once the box has searched and made a channel list the programme guide will be available.

Hi Adam,

Here is the link for tv center pro for your vista 64 bit download and install this to your computer.
I suggest also to connect your tuner device at any usb port.

By the way you need the serial number for the new tv center pro.

    SOURCE: Hello, Some of the channels on

    Hello, Tommy Faust with DISH Network here. I'm sorry your guide is showing you incorrect information.

    What may fix it is a hard reset where you unplug the receiver from the power outlet for 15 seconds and plug back in. If that doesn't work then try a check switch test. Go into Menu - 6 (System Setup) - 1 (Installation) - 1 (Point Dish) and select check switch then select test.

    If you are still having the issue or any further questions feel free to ask here.

    Is there a TV Guide for the ematic AT 103B digital converter box?

    There is an electronic program guide. However, it's limited. To see the current program and upcoming programs for the current channel, press the EPG button on the original Ematic AT103B remote. (Universal remotes may or may not match the function.) To see the other channel's program list, use the left/right arrows to scroll through the lists for all of the available channels.

    You may find a web site like Titan TV, , more useful. The site has a guide to all channels at once by time for your area OTA channels.

    I hope this helps.

    Problems on epg information on some channels but not others

    Is the episode guide from OTA channels or a set-top box (Tivo, cable)? Make sure that the time is set correctly. In my area, the automatic time information comes from the OTA PBS station. That station's time often is off by a few minutes. (Similarly, when the time is set manually, the clock also drifts on one of my TVs.)

    If you get your information from a set top box, try rebooting (or unplugging for a minute) the unit. This sometimes will reset the data.

    If those two suggestions don't help, the problem is from the stations/EPG provider. Sometimes the provider's clock is off and this causes the issue. You could try contacting that provider if their clock or program list is routinely off. (If this is related to an event that took longer than scheduled, there isn't much to stop the issue.)

    I hope this helps.

    (Last weekend, my cable box had the correct time. The EPG insisted on showing the programs for 5-6 hours later. Since the provider is a local cooperative, we had to wait until Monday for the support staff to reset the EPG at their computers. Rebooting the set-top box was tried, but didn't help.)

    Tv won't work

    I downloaded this off of Wikipedia. You are not the only person having the problem with the switch to digital television. The complaints are nationwide. the old TV Guide Plus has gone away for many viewers and soon for all viewers as the transition to DTV gets nearer. If you are using an antenna be sure to get the digital converter. They are practically free with a government sponsored coupon.

    Digital television
    The new service, launched in the United States in 2006, is entirely digital, using the ATSC digital television standard. While this will significantly improve the service, older systems will no longer be able to download listings once analog shutdown is done in early 2009.
    It should be noted that the Program and System Information Protocol (PSIP) within the ATSC standard already allows for each station to send out its own EPG information, and in the U.S. the FCC in fact requires stations to do so for OTA (but not cable, unless they are rebroadcasting an OTA station that provides the PSIP data). However, actual implementation is rather spotty, and usually very minimal -- stations often don't have full descriptions (or even correct information) on the current show, much less the next 3 hours required of them, or the 16 days worth of guide information that can be transmitted. Additionally, ATSC tuners are not required to even show the EPG, only the very limited information for the current show on the current channel.
    While the TV Guide service also requires software in the TV or other device, and licensing fees or royalties to be paid to Gemstar TV Guide, it also offers a more complete solution for broadcast television, more like digital satellite or digital cable.

    The EPG is the electronic program guide trying to download TV listings.

    This is normal for this player. To disable this, you would need to turn off the TV guide function.
