The TV guide on screen no longer lists the tv schedule
I have a Toshiba RD-XS55 with Tv guide on screen. It recently stopped getting the channel lineup. I get my cable service through Comcast. I dont know if this is a conversion to digital issue. THe http://www.macrovision.com site says the cable company should be getting the signal thru to us. I'm not sure whats going on.

Your TV is not receiving or displaying the signal from your DIRECTV® Receiver.
Your receiver has correct guide information, but is not processing video correctly.
You are viewing a channel where an upcoming sporting or special event is scheduled or has recently ended.
Turn TV off and on.
Make sure light on front panel of receiver is lit.
Press the "TV/DSS" button on the remote control or front panel of the receiver (not all receivers have this option).
Reset the receiver by unplugging the power cord for 15 seconds.
Check all cable connections between the dish, receiver and TV.
If the picture is black, but the program title and description display in a banner the top of the screen:
If the problem is only occurring on a few channels, check the detailed description of the program through the on–screen guide on those channels. Often, we display a blank screen with a banner before and after a high–profile event to alert customers about the event.
Reset the receiver by turning off and unplugging the power cord for 15 seconds.
Run a signal meter test to check your signal strength (press "menu" and look under "setup" or "installation").
If your signal strength is below 70 (or below 60 on HD receivers) in clear weather on transponders 1 and 2, see our troubleshooting steps for "Searching for satellite signal. Please stand by." You may see zero strength on transponders 4, 12, 18, 20, 26 and 28. This is normal in many areas. Your system manual shows how to run cables and point your dish.

The following is instructions for deleting timers from your receiver.
Turn your TV on. Press your DVR button on your DISH remote 2 times. This will bring up My Recordings on your TV. Select the Schedule button on the right of the screen. This will take you to the Daily Schedule screen. Select the Timers button on the right. You will be on the Timers List screen. Press and release the Left Arrow button on the remote to move the cursor into the Timers List box. Select the timer you want to remove. After pressing select on the remote, there is a button on the right, Delete. Select the Delete button and it will ask you if you are sure you want to delete the timer. Select Yes. You will need to follow those steps to delete all timers you do not want. As you delete timers, you will not see those timers on the Timers List or the Daily Schedule anymore. I hope this helps.
I'm afraid this will no longer work... With the change to all digital, the TVGOS in your set will no longer work. I have the same set, same problem and spoke directly with a Toshiba tech. Bummer, I have the Symbio DVR and it won't work now either.
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.
I spoke with Toshiba tech support today (800-631-3811). They have an advanced services team that focuses on TV Guide On Screen. Learned the following:
- The TV Guide On Screen signal is updated 4x / day and is broadcast by your service provider
- The broadcast channel varies depending on what the service provider chooses (though typically a major network or PBS station)
- TV Guide On Screen has been doing some reprogramming and updates recently and this has resulted in many sporadic outages
If you ARE not receiving your listings, it's one of two things - either your DVR or the signal from the cable company.
- If you are having issues, call Toshiba and let them know, they will walk through some basic troubleshooting to narrow down if the problem is the DVR or the TV Guide On Screen signal.
- If the issue is the TV Guide On Screen signal, they will be able to report the issue to TV Guide On Screen and let them know their is an issue.
Had the same problem, channels would not stop scrolling.
It was as though someone had there finger on the channel up button.
Disconnected the sixth wire, starting with the black wire on the wiring harness for the front buttons, on/off, ch. up/down, vol. up/down, etc.
It works fine, no more unwanted channel surfing!!
