EPG Data only for only 8 hours into future

I only have EPG data for the next 8 hours. This has been true for the last couple of days. So, the the guide is always current but I can't go to upcoming days to schedule a recording. I am currently running the trial version. Is this a limitation until it is registered or can I do something about it? A forced EPG update doesn't help.

There is no trial limitation like that.

Where are you located? Are you using the built-in EPG data for the US and Canada, or are you using XML data somewhere else?

Select one of the shows in a channel with limited data in the Program Guide, then choose View Program Information. What does it list as the ShowID? If it starts with DT, then you are seeing data grabbed from the station's broadcast, not downloaded EPG data from SageTV or XMLTV. If this is the case, then for built-in data, I'm guessing that you are not mapping the channels to their correct names. For more help, you should list what tuner you are using & so on.

I am using the built-in EPG data for the US. I am in Olympia, WA. I have a Hauppauge 1600 (418 TS Digital tuner), and tuning it to a QCAM hd feed. When I setup the channels I used Comcast Lineup for my zip code then scanned for digital channels then remapped the HD signal to the corresponding channel in the guide (via "Map Different Station to this Physical Channel"). Is this not the correct way?

I figured it out. I remapped one of the channels from the HD version in the guide to the "regular" one and the guide is coming in for it okay. I will do the rest. Thanks for pointing out the problem.
