Why does Media Center EPG no longer show actor/crew info?

Post by stevesb99 »

Hi, I use SD and EPG123 to populate my Win Media Center EPG and until recently it always included
Actor and Crew information along with Other Showings, Actions, Synopsis, etc. but it no longer does.
Anyone know why?

data should be there. I would start with the EPG123 folks to troubleshoot.

That data was always provided by Microsoft servers, i believe. MS has stopped them.

That's true for all guide data. If you're getting data from EPG123 (which is getting data from us), the info should be there. That's why I suggested checking with the EPG123 folks.

The user had enabled an option to not include cast & crew. Nothing wrong with the SD data or EPG123.
